Towa Tei drops in
The day after the Hollywood Bowl, Towa Tei stops in. He cited Yellow Magic Orchestra as being mentors to him and he said the show was like playing with old friends. It’s ironic that he was the least heralded at the show since he was DJing in between bands, yet the title Big in Japan, really fits him and YMO the most.
It’s been a little while, but I last saw him in Tokyo a couple of years ago and he mentioned that the yen is strong, the economy is weak, and life has changed in Japan.
