Anyway, I had no clue what records Naohiro was showing me, but I’ll check them out and give them a listen in the coming days (All the records photographed are listed on Discogs with info – link in bio). Despite not knowing industrial/goth/metal music well (nor the -waves / -cores), I mentioned that my neighbor (and father of my son’s best pal) is part of legendary industrial outfit, Skinny Puppy, and Naohiro was quite impressed to hear that. We also discussed The Cure’s (one of his favorite bands) recent re-release of “Wish”, which was one of the first CDs I ever bought as a kid, and how original pressings go for $400 these days (though Nao scored his copy for $20 back in the day). He also shared with me that he plays bass in a band called 13th Moon. Will check them out. Lastly, I’ll mention, Naohiro had a cool vintage bag from the British record label that have been (and continue to be) responsible for releasing tons of great alternative music from Bauhaus to Bon Iver, and are credited for signing one of my all-time favorite bands – The Pixies! Thanks, Naohiro! More Tokyo Record Style on the way!
