i love soundtrack records of films very much!! of course if it's my favorite film, it's perfect! but i like many soundtrack records even these are not my favorite films too!!
i like this so famous film "Emmanuelle" series, even B-class Italian fake series too! when i watched this film (i was probably 13 or 14 years old) on TV, i found some songs were very similar with King Crimson's "Larks' Tongues in Aspic pt.2" that i loved at that time! but the scenes of the film with these tracks gave me so big shock... these images of the scenes were totally different from my image that i got from King Crimson's "Larks' Tongues in Aspic pt.2"... these scenes were really mystic also erotic for low teenager boy!! hahaha...
when i bought this record first time (i bought and sold it 2 or 3 times in my life...) i got big shock again! i love Main Theme and same kind of atmosphere tracks as French soft easy-listening music... but these fake "Larks' Tongues in Aspic pt.2" tracks are including beautiful drone... this drone remained me my first shock when i saw the scenes with these music!! finally i understood this drone was the most important for my images of this film!!! i wasn't interested in anything about plagiarism from King Crimson's "Larks' Tongues in Aspic pt.2" or not... because these tracks with drone are much more great music than King Crimson's "Larks' Tongues in Aspic pt.2" that even i loved so much...



        2008-08-29       This is Spinal Tap / Spinal Tap

2 years ago, our UK tour driver Ben said us "you should watch one great film Spinal Tap!". he recommends all tour musicians this great Mockumentary film... but we couldn't watch it then... in last year, Ben drove for other band when we toured in UK, so his friend Dale drove for us instead of Ben. also Dale recommended Spinal Tap too!! but we couldn't watch it at that time too... one day in last spring 2008 (it was just after AMT & TMP U.F.O.'s US tour, before JNMF European tour... i could stay at my temple just 2 nights!!), i received one package from Dale, he sent me the Spinal Tap dvd!!! but i couldn't watch it, i had no time!!! after JNMF European tour, i was mega busy to finish recording of 2 new albums of AMT & TCI and had some shows in Japan... then i had to go to US for Terrastock #7... when i came back to Japan, i had to go to Hokkaido for 2 shows of AMT & TCI... still i had no time to watch it... i had to fly to Kyushu (south side of Japan) from Hokkaido (north side of Japan) to join with JNMF Japan tour!! just after this tour, i joined croatian band 7 That Spells' Japan tour... and i had to go on fly to Germany for playing with Guru Guru... after Germany, i went to France, and fly to London for AMT & TCI's UK & Irish tour... i had no time to watch it until coming back to UK in this summer...
on last AMT & TCI's UK & Irish tour, Ben drove for us again. (he has worked with us since 2002!!) his new van has a dvd player with wireless headphones!! Ben gave us Spinal Tap dvd for watching on the road!! what the great gift was! finally we could watch Spinal Tap even without Japanese subtitles...!! before watching it, Ben said us "you'll want to watch it more and more when you'll finish watching it..." he said though he watched more than 25 times, he still found some new things in each time!! it was not lie!! when we finished watching, i already wanted to watch it again!! Hiroshi and i watched it again on the tour... also Ben gave this soundtrack too! hahaha... i couldn't stop laughing... it's so funny and great parody of the great rock band discography!! which band was the model of Spinal Tap? maybe Status Quo? hahaha... anyway it's totally perfect Mockumentary!!! also music is really good!!! i love a song "Listen To Me (The Flower People)" that is their 1st single in 1967!!? their song titles (also album titles) are so funny!! i love so much stupid funny episodes that were parody of real stories of some famous groups!!! i really understood how funny film is for especially tour musicians!!!
i'd love to make a Mockumentary film of AMT!! hahaha... because we had many many stupid, funny, strange happenings on our history too... but it will be super B movie!! hahaha...
i like the idea "up to eleven" on their Marshall head!! oh my god... right, it's the one of the funniest film!!! but it means their music is good (bad means good!! anyway perfect parody!!), so the film became more funny!!!
