Ukigumo's personal music is very different from the material he writes for Ringo.

Ichijiku no Hana was the first song he composed for her [Ringo did the lyrics] and its not something that fits with the Petrolz smooth, pass-the-doobie style.

He's just that versatile a composer, it seems.

hey, I like the Citizens/BBQueen vid link that pops up after Holloway finishes! thats new to me too.

Hey Glath, is it possible to order stuff on Amazon.jp with an American credit card? I don't want to try until I know for sure.

I've ordered twice from Amazon.co.jp with my Washington Mutual debit MasterCard (before and after they got bought out by Chase). The only 'problem' I've had, is with the 3% foreign transaction fee that all the major American banks are charging lately.

Also, today's exchange rates are somewhere around 93yen to the dollar right now, compared to the 120yen that it used to be before Variety came out. That means instead of spending $20 to buy 2400yen worth of Japanese goods, $20 will now only get you like 1850yen.

Keep those two things in mind and prepare to take the sting. I think you'll be okay.

Yikes, that's not cool. But it is nice that they accept American cards. I'm actually going to order the Petrolz album and then tell my parents to give it to me for Christmas. Normally I'd just get it myself, but I'm having a hard time thinking of stuff to ask for this year.

Thanks for the insight, sir!



PS - speaking of Petrolz, a new performance of OSCA is now on Youtube. It's live like the others, but this version seems to have more of a Petrolzy style to it (rather than sounding like the Tokyo Jihen cover).

Waaaait, a second. Ichijiku is one of the few SR songs that I don't remember by heart, but isn't it also VERY popular on this forum (As in, popular even among the people who don't like Ukigumo)? I remember nearly everyone posting it on their ideal Shiina Ringo Greatest Hits list.

I have the official score of the song. Music credits have those two unique Uki+Kumo kanji next to them. Even if you cant read kanji, we know Ringo's name is four kanji. [edit: Ringo did lyrics]

yeah I was shocked to find that out too. He plays guitar on Ishiki and Meisai. The man is a chameleon with many hats. The more I hear and read about his work, he seems to be a perfect match for Ringo's music.

the big complaints were about his clean guitar tone which isn't hot and blusey like Hirama's, and the man has no pizzazz onstage. but Ukigumo is technically more skilled.
