Goodbye David Bowie

Goodbye, David Bowie….

You were the very first that made me crazy about one rock star and not just one song…

You were the first one that made me understand what “music makes me high” meant…

You were the one that made me hate my dark and wavy hair: I wanted to have straight blonde hair so I could make it orange…

Because of you, I stayed indoors and never got a suntan in my entire life; that is why at nearly 60 today, I have no wrinkles.

You were also the one who showed me that it was OK not to be the most popular boy in school and to be different and to be myself. ……..

For many years, David Bowie made me laugh and scream and sing and dream… Yesterday, for the first time in a long time, he made me remember how to cry again.

David Bowie, I love you.

You changed my life.

I will never forget.

Top 3 Videos for Sept. 11, 2015! Texaco Leatherman, The Atom Age, Blonde Summer, the Routes!

Once again time for the Top 3 Videos… The Top 3 Indies artists videos sent straight to you from Tokyo, Japan! We have some hot rock n roll for you today!

First up today is a band heartily recommended by my friend Bee Bee Clarke. Bee Bee has his ear to the wall in the Tokyo music scene and knows his stuff. He writes, “Texaco Leatherman … take what’s expected and fuck it silly before the audience.” Yeah. These guys are scary, like the Cramps!

#3) Texaco Leatherman – Jason Bill

At #2 today is a band that’s been getting lots of airplay on the radio show, The Atom Age. Their webpage says, “The Atom Age find their inspiration from the dust covered collections of unhinged 60’s punk and R&B, whose crazed energy was once misconceived as a better fit for your trashcan than for your turntable.”

#2) The Atom Age – Wasteoid

At this week’s #1 is Los Angeles Indie rockers, Blonde Summer. Rodney on the Roq has been playing them a lot, so what’s good enough for Rodney is usually good enough for me!

#1) Blonde Summer // “High Times”


Quick question: When was the last time you heard of Kyushu?

“What is a Kyushu?” is an entirely acceptable response.

Kyushu is Japan’s southernmost large island. Its largest city is Fukuoka. There seems to be something going on down there as we have been playing a lot of bands from that area. Namely, last week we had Titty Twister, and this week we have a band that I think is fucking awesome, The Routes! The Routes are down in Kyushu but they’ve been getting lots of airplay and attention in Europe and on my Sunday show. If you liked the Pebbles or Nuggets album series, you are gonna dig this!

BONUS TRACK! The Routes – Day and Night

神田祭のお写真第弐弾! / More photos from Kanda Festival 2015


Hullo, my dear human species! I is ROBOT55!



We shared some fantastic pics from Kanda Festival, one of 3 great Shinto festivals of Japan, here last week.



Due to insistent public demand, we decided to upload more photos from Kanda Festival for your viewing pleasure! Continue Reading…

神田祭に行ってきたよ! / Kanda Festival 2015


Hullo, my dear human species! I is ROBOT55!



Last weekend, I joined what is considered to be one of the three great Shinto festivals of Tokyo, along with the Fukagawa Matsuri and Sanno Matsuri, or some might even say one of the three great Shinto festivals of Japan, along with Gion Matsuri in Kyoto and Tenjin Matsuri in Osaka, the Kanda Matsuri!


神田明神(創建伝天平2年)/ Kanda Shrine, founded in 730 AD



関ヶ原の合戦の戦勝祈祷から始まったとされるこの祭の熱気は400年以上経った21世紀 の今日も健在しております!

Started as a prayer for victory in the battle of Sekigahara, the decisive battle that changed the course of Japan’s destiny in 1600, Kanda Matsuri’s energy is still as present as ever after 400 years!


出陣寸前の神田鍛冶町弐丁目の神輿と山車 / Kanda Kaji-cyo 2-cyome’s Mikochi & float marching



Matsuri is fun for both young and old, girls & boys – kind of rare for what is essentially a religious ceremony!




Besides miyairi, the ritual to return the demi-god from mikoshi, the small mobile shrine, to the main Kanda shrine,  the most spectacle part of Kanda matsuri is when centuries-old mikoshis march through the street of Akiabara, the world-famous post-modern electric/electronic town as well as the otaku-pop-culture’s major breeding ground – nothing sums up the both ends of Japan’s cultural spectrum better.




Matsuri is held everywhere in Japan between late spring and late Autumn. As it is fundamentally a Shinto ceremony to thank Gods for harvest, Autumn being the most popular time. Kanda matsuri is a major tourist-attraction for both local and international tourists. However, it’s even more fun to participate and carry the little mobile shrine yourself. People are usually very friendly and often provide you with free booze! Can be the experience of a lifetime!

Science Fiction! Japanese Concept Car Videos 2! 日本のコンセプトカービデオpt. 2!

There was a great reaction to the Japanese Concept Car Videos (part 1). Thanks. As I promised, I’d make a part two.

These are cool cars designed by engineers for all the big Japanese car manufacturers through the years that have never made it into production. I think you might agree that these are the coolest designs. Here are a few more selected videos from the wild and crazy, Science Fiction universe of Japanese concept cars.

Since the 1950s, all the big Japanese car manufacturers have been testing and designing cars that, if you saw them on the road, you’d think that it was something out of a Hollywood science fiction movie! Some of these designs are so fab that they are out of this world!

I’ve searched the internet and found some short videos of a few of my favorites. So if you like Science Fiction, and you like cars! Then this is a short trip for you!

Mazda RX-7 500 1970

Mitsubishi HSR II 1989

Totoya EX-7 1972

Totoya Pod 2001

Old VHS Video Tapes Becoming Expensive Collector’s Items! Do You Have Any of These Tapes?

Good News and Bad News!

Good news first!

Remember those old VHS video tapes that everybody had back in the eighties?  Well, now some of those old VHS video tapes might be worth a bunch of money! That’s right! Some VHS tapes have now become valuable and collectable antiques selling for several thousand dollars!

What’s the Bad News?

The Bad News is that you or your mom or wife, or dumb boyfriend, dumped boxes of them into the garbage years ago… And you said, “OK!”


Now, antique and collectable professionals and experts say that those VHS tapes are joining the ranks of vinyl records as valuable and rare collectibles and some of them have been getting sold for over ¥1,230,000! (That’s over $10,000 (USD)).

Arrrrrrgggghhhh! Again!

As the years went by and DVD’s became popular, VHS tapes have disappeared from the average household. Add to that the big retail chains going bankrupt and you have a massive amount of VHS tapes being dumped and ruined in land fills.

But VHS cassettes and boxes that are still in good shape can demand high prices. They have been gone and out of our existence for just long enough to inspire nostalgia.

David Jinks, a famous international collector of goods and antiques, said: ‘It’s time to learn the lesson of vinyl. Many old LPs and singles are now worth huge amounts of money.”

I once saw David Bowie’s “Man Who Sold the World” (The Orange Jacket) selling for over ¥4 million yen (That’s about $40,000 (USD)) at a store in Shinjuku! Today, some VHS video tapes are considered just as collectable as original records.

Even now, sometimes you can see piles of old VHS tapes being thrown out. There are probably few items more unwanted at the moment than old VHS video tapes. Many people probably have a boxful in the basement and they, of course, don’t have a working VHS machine (who does?)

Did you know that charity stores like Goodwill or Salvation Army and other second hand stores won’t even take the VHS tapes and machines for free? because nobody wants them!

But it is because they are being thrown out in the trash that they have become valuable.

Uh, you wouldn’t, by any chance have any old Betamax tapes or a Betamax player, would you?

They definitely will become expensive collectables in the future too… The question is, “Where we going to store all this stuff?”
