Matsue show at carre, 31.04.12...

Takashi runs a bakery named `carre` in the gentle, airy town of Matsue, and we played in the yard behind his shop - see the people grinning ear to ear at Naoto's guitar wit...

After the show we headed over to a friends house overlooking the river - a beautiful and very traditional Japanese house - here we drank shochu and ate dinner whilst me and the amazing Noguchi Atushi took it in turns on the guitar. He's got a beautiful voice and he's a great guitarist - naoto filmed this video of us playing Diane Cluck's song 'dilapidalliance'... If you're not aware of Diane's song of the week subscription project, join up or have a read about it: it's a really inspiring and innovative idea, both from the perspective of being a big fan of hers and from myself being a musician aiming towards a subsistence lifestyle through music...


It's a shame I didn't get any film of Noguchi's songs but I'll post one up here soon...


This show marked the end of me and Naoto's tour together, we were up at 5 the next morning to drive back to Kyoto, choto futsukayoi (a little hungover...) We have one more show together on the 12th, a house show in Kyoto; I'm happy it's not too final...
