A fun little video made by my mate Irwin Wong, featuring a very handsome Japancamerahunter (look out of the fat spanner with the silly hat). Unfortunately I now have this bloody tune running around my head. Check out his site here. Cheers Japancamerahunter

A great little interview by the charming Mijonju of the amazing Herbie Yamaguchi. We were both at John Sypal’s show on the opening night when Herbie arrived.
