Guitars, Japan, Food aka Beatle Shaped Sushi....Things I think about in no particular order, and conflated whenever possible - Japanese food, great guitar moments at the Budokan, and so on. Find me Beatle shaped sushi and we can talk.

An interview with mum. 
Q: who do you think is the most significant figure in your lifetime?
A: John Lennon.
Q: what did they do?
A: John was first a very talented songwriter and singer. Second he sang songs about very important things like the song ‘Imagine’. He also married a Japanese woman in a time when people did not approve of marriage between different races. 
Q: why did they do it?
A: because he believed in peace and love over things like money or fame. I cried for two days when he died.


What…? He hated jazz! Oh, those crazy journalists.

Fab Magazine6th March 1965

We had a change of personnel (ahem) so the band needed a new name. The drummer came up with it and I love it: Turn Left At Greenland.


I’m in love.
