Here we are day 3 or is it 4? Anyhow, Jim and Nichol have ventured off into darkest Southern Japan to do some horn section/duo/I don’t know what and we’re left here to entertain ourselves until their return. Yesterday we went up a really tall building with panoramic views of Tokyo. It’s quite something. Somehow, in a scarily natural way, we got talking about darts. What else would you talk about really? So we found an electronic darts pit – it’s so modern here. We played, I won, it was a ripping victory. Flickr pics when I next hi-jack someone’s wi-fi :)
Other news just in – The duo stuff that Steve Lawson and I have been working on is nearing completion, and in the meantime Steve has been getting all modern himself with this ‘tweet for a track’ thingy. In his words as I’ve got to go visit the parasite museum in Tokyo…
We’veÂ Â been releasing a new preview track each time the play-count on the previous one reaches 500 â€“ the last two are onÂ Soundcloud, and are both past that benchmark, so weâ€™ve made another available.
Itâ€™s not on Soundcloud. Itâ€™s available for free in exchange for a Tweet.
Head to http://stevelawson.net/tft/ to get it.
TheÂ â€œtweet for trackâ€ code it written and made available by the amazing people atÂ CashMusic.org â€“Â theyâ€™re doing more to undo the damage inflicted by 50 years of the Record Industry on music-as-culture than anyone. One big of clever geekery at a time. Wonderful people.
So there it is, click on the link here to go and get it, for a tweet. (If youâ€™re not on Twitter, thereâ€™s a clever workaround, but you REALLY should be on Twitter. Srsly. Not being there is basically like being a homeless on the internetz.)
