Clive Tanaka y su Orquesta - All Night, All Right
Gure indiedance met rafelige Moroder zangpartijen. Vaag allemaal maar wel lekker. Alsof je naar een oud cassettebandje zit te luisteren. En verdomd als het niet waar is, na wat gegoogle.. deze gast Clive uit Japan heeft zijn album 'Jet Set Siempre 1' op cassette uitgebracht. Distorted en Hikikomori.
For 11 years, Clive almost never left his room in his family’s home outside of Sapporo on Hokkaido, Japan’s huge northern island. “I was hikikomori,” Clive explains, one of almost a million boys and young men in Japan who shut themselves away and withdraw from society. In Clive’s case, he stopped going to school and retreated to his room after sustained episodes of vicious hazing and harassment by older students, a chronic problem in Japanese public schools. One day, his older sister put in front of his door a big box of her cast-off magnetic tape cassettes of 70’s and 80’s disco music. At night, Clive’s family heard him dancing and singing along. Which gave his mother an idea.
