Why does anyone who has a good life turn to drugs? Despite his celebrity, Niehya always appeared to be withdrawn compared to Miwa and Masa, something his limited role in the band probably didn't improve. We see this every day- celebrities getting in trouble because 'they can't deal with stardom'. St...

Thanks for the Shiina Ringo references, tachikaze. Yes, DCT is definitely pop, jazz-influenced sometimes. Knowing what's good or not is very important in pop- jazz will always be a niche market, and a performer will only get so far with it. Miwa extended her jazz side with her solo work, but surroun...

Could it be DCT pulled some strings to get a second appearance- they've been in the business long enough- to help get themselves back on top? Miwa is always fidgety when she is being interviewed, but this was the first performance of 'Proud of You', so that might have been the reason for the nerves....

Put 'Mike Pela ' into your search engine and you'll see he's still quite busy as a producer and engineer on a variety of projects. I was sorry to see him go when DCT switched labels, especially considering the outcome of the label switch (only one U.S. release allowed). As part of the DCT 'family' o...

A big problem with popular music in general (and which my wife and I noted in Kouhaku and the Music Station on 2/17) is that so few of these people can actually SING. Miwa CAN, which is a big reason why we all love DCT. Inspirationally, today's music for the most part leaves a lot to be desired. Pai...

Miwa, Masa and the band were in very good form on a very pretty song. Right before the performance, the announcers mention the 'Staring at Love and Death' drama in which 'Memai' is included.

How about that audience, tachikaze?

I finally got to watch Kouhaku. I thought the Special Version of 'Yasashii kiss' was very good... wished it would have been longer (I guess that was the 'Warwick Thumb Bass' they showed on DCTgarden that Masa was playing). On 'Nando demo' I thought someone was a bit loud on the chorus- Masa I believ...

'Staring at Love and Death'

DCT will work on the soundtrack of a drama series on Japanese TV called 'Staring at Love and Death'. The soundtrack will include 'Memai' and a cover version of the title track, a 1964 Japan Record Award-winning song. The drama will air on March 18th and 19th.

POWER PLANT is making some seats available for members at the Music Station show. Unfortunately, applicants must be female, out of high school, and under 25. Looks like Music Station/DCT wants to include a certain audience for taping. Like the Rolling Stones' halftime show, I guess.

DCT Garden has additional sound bites available for 'The Love Rocks'. Also, DCT-TV has a clip of 'The Making of The Love Rocks' DVD up. Looking forward to it...
