oh yeah the PIMPS are fun funky energetic brilliant fantastic. They understand that jazz is not a genre of music, it's an attitude! they understand dance music, and they understand that their fans can still take in all the aural details of their highly textured music in various states of inebriation while pumping their fists in the air. Their music is brilliant already but they really *know* how to work the crowd and put them in the right mood for songs.

It doesn't matter that after 5 albums, their studio sound is still pretty much the same, because they're not a studio band. Their music is supposed to be appreciated live, like a giant party, in a medium-sized venue, but they're almost getting too famous for that.

The best thing about SOIL&"PIMP"SESSIONS? They're getting younger people into Jazz music. Jazz greats die off eventually, but their ideas live on to be transformed by a newer generation.

Long live SOIL&"PIMPS"! I can't wait for the next time I get to see them live.

Just discovered that Shacho has a blog!!

He posted the setlist for North Sea Jazz, if anyone's interested:

10/07/09 North Sea Jazz
1. Fuller Love
2. Sabotage
3. 閃く刃
4. Suffocation
5. Pop Korn
6. Pimpnosis
7. We Want More!!!!!!
8. Pig bag
9. Fantastic Planet
10. Summer Goddess
11. 殺戮
encore
12. The Party
13. 手のひら
There are some beautiful photos from their European tour... I can't read Japanese but it seems like Shacho took them since he's missing from most of the photos.






*post 2222!

Some stuff from Shacho's blog, I would really appreciate a rough translation

【デュッセルドルフ】
劇場でのライブ。もちろん椅子もある。
しかし、そんなものはもちろん関係ない。
踊りまくる人々。小さなスピーカーなのに出音がよかったな。
3回目の出演となるNorthSea。相変わらず素晴らしいアーティスト達が名を連ねていた。
僕らの出演したのはYUKONステージ。JAP JAZZ NIGHTではなく、JAPAN CLUB JAZZってタイムテーブルに書いてあった。どうやら僕にそれを教えてくれた人の勘違い。クオシ、KJM、松浦さん。なんだかんだ言っても、気心の知れた仲間と話ができて、とてもリラックスできた。

以前にも書いたが、ノースシーのお客さんは本当にシビアだ。すこしでもショボい演奏をしようものなら、あっというまに会場から出て行ってしまう。僕らと同じ時間にメインステージではDuffyがやってたし。
しかしそんな心配は無駄だった。会場の熱気はすごかった。

そしてそれは、ライブ終盤、みどりんのドラムソロからSAHARAに行こうとした瞬間に起こった奇跡。

オーディエンスのひとりが、Fantastic Planetのフレーズを歌い出したのだ。そしてウイルスが伝染していくかのように、その歌声は会場を埋め尽くして行ったのだ。これまでのヨーロッパツアーで撒いて来た種は、しっかり実を結んでいた。実は、本番直前にセットリストから外れたのがこのFantastic Planetだったのだ。しかしこうなったら、やらない訳がない。言うまでもなく、最高の瞬間だった。

まさにオーディエンスとともに作り上げたライブだった。

ありがとう。

10/07/09 North Sea Jazz
1. Fuller Love

10. Summer Goddess
11. 殺戮
encore
12. The Party
13. 手のひら

会場からホテルに戻る大型バスは、SOIL、クオシ、KJMの面々が同乗。なんだか感慨深かった。いくつかインタビューに答えたんだけど、決まって、「最近の日本からいいバンドが生まれているが、日本のシーンはどうなの?」みたいな質問をされる。それだけ日本の音楽シーンが注目されてるってことだ。素直に嬉しかったな。

Yup. Tabu has one too. Just go google and type in Tabu Zombie blog. The staff of the band are also running another blog that could be found in the band's official Japanese webpage.

But Sacho has the coolest one with lots of stupid photo....These guys act so cool onstage but Sacho does provide another side of these funny guys. Especially Tabu

[Düsseldorf]
Live at a theater. Of course there were chairs.
But it have nothing to do with.
Peoples were dancing on and on.
Good sound despite little speaker.

---------

It was our 3rd time appearence on NorthSea.
There were fantastic musicans as before.
Our appearance was on YUKON stage.
It was written as not JAP JAZZ NIGHT but JAPAN CLUB JAZZ on timetable.
Apparently due to mistake from a person who told me.
Quasi, KJM, Matsuura-san.
After all, we could relax due to be able to talk with familiar companies.

As I wrote before, audience in NorthSea is really hard.
If someone plays a bit unexciting, they immidiately go out from venue.
Futhermore during the same time with our performance, Duffy played at main stage.
But it was an idle fear. The venue had great feverish excitement.

And that was miracle happend at last phase, we intended Midorin's drum solo to SAHARA.

One of audience began to sing phrase of Fantastic Planet,
and as if infection of virus, that singing voice went to fill venue.
Our seeds in European tour, has certainly produced a result.
To tell the truth, just before the performance,
we took off Fantastic Planet from set list, but as things stand,
there were no reason not to play it.
Needless to say, it was best moment.

Exactly, it was live performance produced with audience.

Thank you.

10/07/09 North Sea Jazz
1. Fuller Love
2. Sabotage
3. Flashing Edge
4. Suffocation
5. Pop Korn
6. Pimpnosis
7. We Want More!!!!!!
8. Pig bag
9. Fantastic Planet
10. Summer Goddess
11. Massacre
encore
12. The Party
13. A hand

The large bus return to hotel from venue, was shared with SOIL, Quasi and KJM.
I had somewhat strong feelings. While we had several interviews,
they always asked like "Recently good bands are born in Japan,
How is Japanese scene ?"
To the extent, Japanese music scene is watched.
I was obediently glad.

That's really true. With so many good performances happening at the same time.. especially on the third day, I found myself staying only 20mins before running off to check out other performers. First day was not a problem since I was basically camping in the Yukon tent for Quasimode, Kyoto Jazz Massive and SOIL&"PIMP"SESSIONS!

Great story about Fantastic Planet, I thought that was the theme song of their European tour! SAPS really gave it their all at North Sea; it was a special special night

Jamie Cullum & SAPS did something before during the BBC Electric Proms... it was a remake of this Herbie Hancock song and it was quite amazing. I wonder if it'll be just that or something more?

I'm bored of SR. Let's not mention her name in this thread.
