The Plastics just announced that line-up and set list for the double-bill concert with Hikashu on December 23, 2003 at Daikanyama UNIT, Tokyo.
Of course, all the original member will be present - except Chika. Unfortunately, she'll not be there. And her replacement is linda dada, a vocalist and drummer from a band called N' Ninagawa Boys. Moreover, Sakuma Otoya, a son of Sakuma Masahide, will join as a keyboard player. Also there are several supporting musicians.
Nakanishi Toshio - vocals, guitar
Tachibana Hajime - guitar
Sakuma Masahide - keyboard, guitar
Shima Takemi - rhythm box, guitar
Sakuma Otoya - keyboard
linda dada - vocals
Yamakawa Fuyuki - khoomei
Hayashi Mio - oboe
momo - keyboard
The Plastics are supposed to play over one hour. The set list is as follows:
01. TOP SECRET MAN
04. DIGITAL WATCH
05. I WANNA BE A PLASTIC
11. DIAMOND HEAD
How about this? Quite interesting. And as for Hikashu's set, Umezu Kazutoki will join on saxophone.
So on this gig, you will probably see four groups - The Original Hikashu featuring Makigami Koichi on bass and vocals (they'll play first), The Plastics, Hikashu with Umezu Kazutoki, and naturally, all the musicians will be back to play together for encore. What they will actually play is anyone's guess.
So now you know it's destined to be once in a lifetime thing. Do not miss it.
