20,000v is a live house that has become infamous in Tokyo because the last location of the same name was burnt down. Now they have a new place and it`s as well kitted out as before.
I`m sharing the billing with Gogatech (who some may remember toured with me in the UK earlier this year) and Callum`s Whisky Tales who has become a gig sharing regular during this tour. However, The most striking act for this show was without a doubt was MogurakaMaigo もぐらか迷子.
Roughly Translated this name means ‘the lost mole’ and basically it`s a dude in a mole costume who sings like he is confused. But to his credit there is a bunch of very interesting elements to his playing, technique and character that keep you intrigued. The music is beautiful fragile and experimental.
For my show I was spoilt for musicians to share the stage with. After playing a couple of solo numbers I was first joined by Adam Erdossey on Baritone Sax. He suggested we have a crack at the song ‘Results are Classified’ from my first record which had only just been re-introduced to my live set the show prior after a year out of the set.
After a couple of tunes I was joined by Eric Gebow who finished the night off with some additional drums.
Great vibes and a pleasure to share the stage with some other players 🙂
