It was a very cold day for early December. Pat often got cramps in the arm and fingers during the shows, saying "I'm 54!" His guitar playing was perfect, though.

Max learnt some Japanese and he tried to do MC in Japanese as much as possible.

Pat Says

Saturday night: Basement Bar, Shimokitizawa. Eider stuns audience and rhythm guitarist by jabbering at length in Japanese. Rhythm guitarist experiences spectacular jet-lag cramp in all four limbs during performance, leading to some interesting guitar maneouvres. Audience painfully hip. ambience deliciously warm. Total buzz. Taxis. For encores we played "Soul Happy Hour" and then "Girls Who Keep Goldfish" and "Sweet Jane" (the way we used to do in about 1983).

Ayuko Koyabashi made a poster with a rather flattering depiction of the performers.

Shirely MacLaine played live is a powerful and beautiful thing. Hope the audience appreciated. For those of us who are Facebook blind, any chance of posting a little write-up of how the Japan trip went? I am a demanding sort.
