When we left the land of the rising sun I had some 600 or so tapes, all over the board as far as genre is concerned. I could have had more but around the 2 month mark I discovered 'Japanese Highschool Girls'......but that's another story all together.
I have also had the good luck to be introduced to all sorts of new music from friends and acquaintances, so in honor of Big Fat Music Monday (it's a holiday somewhere....):
The amazingly talented Emily Wells (best use of kids toys)
The incomparable Camille O'Sullivan (Best Nick Cave cover EVER!!!! Thanks for this one Troy!)
"Tom Waits' songs are like a Tennessee Williams play; the sound of people living together in separate silent hells." ~ Unknown online commenter
John Prine ......because he's John Prine
Junkyard...fat, sticky 80's rock sound!
In the 80's I had the same hair as the lead singer and dressed like BonJovi. It worked to my advantage in Japan.....I was HUGE in Japan.
