I originally wrote a friends-only entry in my journal about Age of Punk sounding too much like The Jesus and Mary Chain, and yet still being very good at it. lol This was sort of an addendum.
cross-posted from my journal:
For those interested in such things, in 'Royal Electrasy', Asaki thanks the following people:
Kouichi Watari, Takahito Yamamoto (HIBINO), Ryouichi Hashimoto (HIBINO), Toshiyuki Fuchikami (THE ROCK), Shirou Tezuka (LEO MUSIC), Hidetoshi Kai (LEO MUSIC), Jyuichi Watanabe [is this a typo? I thought it was Junichi Watanabe....but maybe this is someone else], AFKEY, ADEYTO, DONNI, MIHOchan, DONchan, BUCK-TICK, KIYOSHI, CATENINE, BUG, ENDS, Brain Drive, Laputa, Seizi Kimura (hurdy gurdy), ISSAY (HAMLET MACHINE), Slim of Skin, Ken Sakaguchi [he didn't do the art direction for the album though? it's Ken Hosono from beach graphics for both. unless this is a completely different Ken Sakaguchi. >.>], Kou Imazu, friends & family, and...NEWAGE PUNKS [AoP's fanclub].
edit: sorry, i'm smoking crack. I was thinking of TANAKA Junichi (Victor) not Watanabe(?!). :x
In 'Absolute Music', he thanks a bunch of people I'm completely unfamiliar with, mainly recording and mixing people, studio people etc.
And because it's in engrish and just *too funny* not to share...
