Thanks, so cold. I just signed up, too. They sound exciting live from the above impressions.

If he has to tire himself out to get a sound that's not natural for the instrument he is playing, he should be playing an instrument that naturally sounds more like what he has been unnaturally trying to achieve.

If tenor saxophone doesn't have the range+texture that Moto wants, then he needs a custom or non-standard saxophone. That would be cooler than what he's been doing, because then he wouldn't have to retire so quickly when he starts to get old.

I would really LOOOOVE to see them again!!
In some of the performances I've seen, the pimp sometimes contributes toward the actual melody rather than crowd control. If the main keyboardist picks up a keytar, the pimp is on backup keyboard. Sometimes the pimp generates electronic melody from a touchpad, too. I dunno if he has done any of that in Europe, or if it's Japan only.

That's what baritone saxophones are for. I love their crunchy sound. Baritone saxophones have noticeably more RAWR factor than any of the particular horns in SOIL&"PIMP"SESSIONS are capable of from any amount of performer exhaustion.

Whenever you watch the Simpsons, you ever notice Lisa Simpson's awesome saxophone solos in the intro? That's totally a baritone sax in most of the Simpson intros - if not all of them. I have suspicions that occasionally they switch it up with a tenor (not every Simpsons intro has the same solo), but never ever has Lisa Simpson played an alto sax. I haven't looked this up anywhere on the web - I'm just saying that based on what my ears are telling me. You listen to some baritone saxophone solos in Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, and you'll say to yourself "Yep, that's definitely the Lisa Simpson saxophone". It's such a badass sound.

I guess he has already spent some time on playing the sax, so he must have SOME reason for why he chooses the instrument he does use.

Maybe he wants to develop the healthiest set of lungs in Japan without having to do any running or swimming.

Maybe
Maybe it's easier to play on these with a certain speed/volume while having the sound

True that. In recordings the sax almost sounds painful, it's hard for me to listen to a whole album with the brasses blaring all the time. However, it's quite a different story live! The sax & trumpet are basically like the power guitarists, and you really want them to go mad with the distortion cuz it really does convey a certain energy to the crowd!

Saw some guys filming the crowd, will probably buy their next dvd to see if I can find myself and golem in it. LOL.

There's a new album, and for once it doesn't have PIMP anywhere in the name.
I don't know if it's a real album then, or maybe it's a RealAlbum, like RealProducts from RealNetworks.

Dare I say S&PS kicks PE'Z in the behind live? their music is really visceral and exciting. The bebop soloing makes any particular song sound fresh every show.

i'm envious of you guys who got to really see them live. i have to rely on vids.
