Special Fuji Rock guest

A while back we worked with Tokyo‘s Matsuki Ayumu – he did a mix of our WFRnR, & we mixed his In-June track.  Well in July on 31st we are very pleased that he will be joining us on-stage when we play at Fuji Rock Festival in Japan.  Since Guigsy used to come on with us to play Lessons Learn’t we have not had anyone on stage with us, and we do feel lonely, and bored with each other.

Matsuki is a rising star who never seems to be out of the studio and we dig his youthful psychedelic soul, inspiration.  So much so, that we will be putting out 2 of his albums this summer – each of which is a double album, each of which melt modern rock at gas mark 11.
