great stuff again... you guys have a youtube channel? I'm also curious as to what organ The Girl in The Hat { Minori[sp?]} is playing... nice fat tone, sounds kinda late 60's. Good, good stuff... I'd drop in for a listen, but it's kinda a hike ;)

Many thanks for the props. Don't think we have a YouTube channel (our management keep dropping the proverbial balls), but there's a cache of various vids featuring various members (all unionized, I can assure you) from various eras at the band's oft-neglected but occasionally engaging official site:

Re: your keys query--The Girl in The Hat is indeed Minori, the estimable Minori Yo to be precise, and her gear is as follows, and I quote:
"My red keyboard is Nord lead 2x, which was used to make organ sounds. As for the piano I was playing solo on, it belongs to Crawfish and if I remember correctly it's a stage piano by Yamaha and the model is CP300. I like to play on it because it has a nice touch as well as a deep sound, like on a real piano."
[Crawfish is the generous and lovely venue we were playing that eve in Akasaka, Tokyo.]
Will let you know when our miscreant management settle on dates for the US stadium tour they keep proposing, usually when drunk or otherwise narcotized.

Stadium tour, dude, if you come to Denver... you can play Red Rocks ...

you might have heard of Live Under a Blood Red Sky by U2... It was filmed there. I work about 10 miles away, so I got that goin' for me.

I'll take a look at the official site, heh, and tell Minori [-san ?] thanks for the info...
