Kirigirisu Recordings Tour Compilationは、今年10月に行った、キリギリスレコーディング北陸ツアーを記念して作られたミニアルバムです。ツアーに参加した3組のアーティストが、このコンピレーションのために、新たに録音してくれました。

Asunaとの出会いは、私たちがまだロンドンに住んでいた2011年にさかのぼります。Broken Shoulderが日本に来た際に行った、七針でのライブに出演していたのがAsunaでした。彼のパフォーマンスに圧倒されて、日本にもすごくおもしろいアーティストがいるんだな、と興奮したことを覚えています。

その他の短編ズと出会ったのは、2年前。 Broken Shoulderが高円寺の円盤で演奏をした際に共演したのがきっかけです。その晩、初めて聴いた彼女たちの音楽と独特の世界観の虜になった私たち。レーベルを始めるにあたって、最初に声をかけたのが彼女たちでした。



Kirigirisu Recordings Tour Compilation is an unimaginatively named 4 track mini album to celebrate the first one of our trips out of Tokyo with some of our musical friends. I realise that two dates is probably not a tour, but if they’re in different cities that must count for something, mustn’t it? And anyway, this is only part one. There will be further shows in more locations as time allows I hope.
I first met Sonotanotanpenz when I played at Enban with them a couple of years ago. They were great that night and given that I am writing this after our tour has finished, I can confirm that they were great in Toyama and Kanazawa too. The first time I played with Asuna was at Nanahari, before I lived in Japan in November 2011. His show that night was a huge inspiration for me and I was delighted when we got back in touch after we started Kirigirisu. The idea for the tour came from a three-way mutual interest in each others music and we have been thinking about it for a while. I was delighted when it finally came together. I can’t thank Asuna enough for all of his hard work in organising the Toyama and Kanazawa shows. Thank you again for everything!
The idea to make a tour CD came at the last minute, but I’m very happy with how things worked out. Thank you to Sonotanotanpenz and Asuna for providing us with these tracks at short notice. I was delighted with how many CDs we sold at the two dates, but intentionally made too many so we would have some to sell to people who couldn’t make it as I really love the music and the way the songs sit together on this release. I’m really looking forward to parts 2, 3 and 4 which we have already been talking about, as it was a lot of fun to play these shows with these artists. If you would like us to bring the tour to your city, please let us know.
