I'm putting together my top 10 favorite Japanese albums list for 2007, which should be done in the next few days.
In the meantime...
I found this wonderful comment to a YouTube video of Asakusa Jinta live at SXSW 2007:
Asakusa Jinta is full of energy and they gave joy to Finnish people yesterday in Helsinki. They are creative, creasy [crazy?], talented, fun, colourful. Just fantastic.
I have 54 years, but I felt myself 40 years younger.
I love Asakusa Jinta.
A Japanese rock band making a 54-year-old Finnish person feel like a teenager...Isn't music so beautiful sometimes, filling you up with possibilities?
