Live in Whelan's: Japanese New Music Festival

This featured some guy from RUINS and Kawabata from Acid Mothers Temple, performing separetly and together. The RUINS guy played drums on his own, and was a great server of "Is this music?" style excitement. Kawabata's solo set was the kind of thing he does solo, bowing away on his guitar to make funny versions of Acid Mothers Temple tracks, notably 'Pink Lady Lemonade'.

I was not quite so convinced initially by the two of them playing together… I started thinking that this is what Phish might sound like. However, they launched into their weird vocal stuff towards the end, which was both funny and musically fun at the same time, leading to a happy ending for all.
