今日のライブ、無事に終了した。本郷の東京倶楽部で初めて出たが、とても良い場。音響も雰囲気も良くて、運が良ければまた出演する所望。

 

We played a show today at Tokyo Club (what a name) in Hongo. It was our first time there. A nice venue, good sound and good atmosphere. We'll play there again, if they'll have us.

 

やっぱり音響の良い環境で演るのは最高だね。リスナーにも演奏者にも喜ばしい。

 

Good sound makes all the difference. For listeners and the band. Is what occured to us today.

 

遊びに来てくれた人々、共演者の不知火くん、お店の方に多謝多謝。

 

To everybody who came to listen, to Iori Shiranui (who played with us) and to the venue, much thanks.

 

そうだ。共演者は不知火庵さんだった。数年前デールと一緒にシングルを作って発売して、長い関係を持ってる友人です。不知火くんはうちだあやこさんという女子ギターボーカルの方とdodoというデュオを結成してるので今回のライブで一緒にやってもらえないか声をかけてさ。でもうちださんは風邪を引きなかなか治らないため今回は不知火くん一人での演奏となった。

 

Iori Shiranui played a set. He and I (Dale) have been friends since way back, when we released a split single together. He was set to play today with Ayako Uchida; they play as a duo under the name dodo. They've got a very cool indie/laid back folk vibe, so we were looking forward to playing a show together. But Uchida caught a cold and was out for the count, so Shiranui had to play solo.

 

不知火くんとうちださんは本当に絶妙に相性の良い組み合わせなので楽しみにしてたが。でも不知火くんのソロ演奏もとても良くて楽しかった。

 

It was too bad we didn't get to hear them play together, since they've got such great chemistry. But Shiranui's solo set was great, anyway, so it all worked out.

さて。その次は梯子ノ上デ。

 

We played next.

不具合・fuguai【 YouTubeにて視聴

妄想力・mosoryoku

飲酒散歩・inshu sanpo

砂読み・sunayomi

余韻・yoin【 YouTubeにて視聴

浮遊・fuyuu

 

飲酒散歩という曲は実は泥流と不知火庵の共作(作曲不知火・作詞泥流・上記のスプリットシングルに入ってるもの)だから、今日は久々に一緒に歌ってみた。やっぱり不知火くんが入ると良い感じになる。

 

The song "inshu sanpo" was actually co-written with Shiranui way back when, released on the aforementioned split single (song: Shiranui; words: Dale). So today for the first time in a long time, we sang it together. And, yeah, it's a lot better when Shiranui's there.

 

次の梯子ノ上デのライブはまだ決まってない。実はしばらくはライブを休止する。録音を作ることにしたので。音源が仕上がったらまたライブを企画して音源を発表したいと思うからよろしく。よろしくというのは、ライブに来てね、という意味で。だから来い。

 

The next hashigo show isn't planned yet. Actually, we're planning to take time off from gigging for a while to focus on recording. Once we've got something ready to release, we'll organize a release show for it, so at that time why not come to a show for a change, you bunch of jerks.
