My penultimate show on this tour and my final farewell to Goga and Callum who have shared many billings with me whilst out in Tokyo. (please see mention of them in previous blogs)
This was one of those shows that stretched out through out the whole day. Soundcheck was about 3pm and the show wasn’t till half 10. With the time between I hung out with the other bands which varied from Japanese fusion rock to Scottish singer/songwriters to American noise experimental improv.
For my set I performed new tune’ Time Lost Tradition’ for the first time aswell as older material like ‘Designed To Stop’ which can be heard in the recording above. I extended the middle link section to include loops and use of the drum kit onstage.
By this point in the tour I was feeling the fatigue and it had been over 18 months on the road. Nearly time to call it all to an end as there was only one show left outside the UK.
Shibuya in Tokyo in two days time.
