The new album is coming real soon and the band looks getting some press appearances recently. The first of them is Time Out Tokyo. A long and nice, very informative article. Well done. And thankfully, this humble blog got an honorable mention.
Hikashu - the Interview - Time Out Tokyo
And if you are in Tokyo area, do not miss a gig tonight. New songs and some fresh improvisations. It's going to be a wild evening, and do not forget to check out the new album.
Time Out says
34 years into their career, the 'pataphysical rock' band led by idiosyncratic vocalist (and sometime theremin player) Koichi Makigami seem to have hit a purple patch. Hikashu release a new album, Uragoe, on April 8 (yes, on a Sunday), and they'll be marking the occasion with a gig at one of their favourite stomping grounds, Kichijoji's Star Pine's Café. Expect new wave pop, vocal gibberish, extended rock improvisations and maybe even the odd jaw harp solo.
