A big x to your milky hair

I'm hissy-fitting, pissy-ripping mad. Olivier Lamm -- yes, that O.LAMM! -- is flying to Japan very soon to promote his out-this-week new album -- an album on which I, Momus, do a totally sick rap! -- and he hasn't invited me along. In fact, the first thing I hear about it is a piece on Digiki's blog. Digiki's on the bill, so's Lullatone. But am I? No. Why? I don't think it's because of the air fare. I would've gone the Aeroflot route for you, Olivier! No, it's because I'm too old, isn't it?

Or maybe -- YES! -- it's because I'm not as beautiful or talented as Nobuko Hori, who is on the bill, and also on your monolithic album Monolith, right? Nobuko Hori, who joins the tour on 22nd November at Fourth Floor, Kitchijioji and 2nd December at Apple Store, Shibuya, right?



Okay, I'll admit that Nobuko is pretty good at what she does. I can totally see why you've done this, Olivier. Her graphics are super sweet and her music is a fucking gorgeous racket, except when it's really sick and sweet, like Midori Hirano mixed with early Lullatone. Music Related are putting out her album soon, and her artwork for North Valley Subconscious Orchestra is sweet as a nut.

Nobuko, who also plays in a sick, sick band called Groopies with a way hott model called Kyoka (they really rip it up live), has way more friends than me on her MySpace page. But that's only because I don't have a MySpace page. Never go there. Well, hardly ever.

And as for that fucktard Rupert Murdoch trying to break into the Japanese market, well, I'm counting on all sensible Japanese to stick with Mixi, the social networking system with built-in Shinto.

A big "x" to your milky hair, girls. And boys, I guess. Wish I was there, rapping about the old khaki teriyaki. Enjoy the tour, bastards!

One of the shows is on a Wednesday, starting at 11pm and finishing an 5am. Do O.Lamm fans not have jobs? Or are they just more hardcore than me and can easily pull off a work/all nighter/work shift?

I am actually listening to Monolith at the moment and it is kind of exploding my head. In complete honesty - the Momus rap is pretty excellent. You sound tough and gruff.

(If it makes you feel any better, somebody offered me a slot opening for oLamm at the Tokyo gig and then immediately kicked me off.)

it seems to be your destiny to be ignored in japan. take the new studio voice, a 90s special. although it promises a feature on the people around kahimi karie, the actual story has no reference to momus other than a very small print as collaborator on one of the albums.
maybe you've got the wrong attitude. look at marxy he's probably got it right. he'll soon be everywhere.

btw. aeroflot is not what it used to be, it's so popular with HISers that if you don't book months and months in advance you either don't fly of you pay as much as you would for lufthansa. times are achanging

the slot's still open for you to join, if you're still keen on taking a plane . i still think you should blame digiki for the lack of social behaviour, though, he's the responsible guy in the affair.

more seriously, i have a nasty flu rearing up the head, and i hope it'll get better before i leave, ahem.

i really hope to see you soon, nick!

Momus, I would like to have a serious dialog with you about blog hosts. The thing about myspace, is, well, it's kkiind of like gambling. You can skirt around and check your stats very easily. Like, I go post something I think is clever, then I bump back to my dashboard, and I can see like immediately whether anywone has read it. It's so fun. I'm like a junkie over there now, trying to get famous fast.

Momus, don't make me come back over here to read you, get over there NOW

I just made a brilliant post over there about musicla notation and how it's hard for impatient color junkies like me

What city are you in? Hard to keep track, dizzy and all

Oh am listenibng to butthole surfers over and over again

am in luv it's awful just shoot me now and get it over with

Nobuko seems to be a prety good artist, but she still hasn't learned that putting a bunch of random noise together doesn't automatically make one a musician.

There are almost an infinite number of people around that lay claim to musicianship. A large portion of them have no business making such a claim.

what is art ?

mr posting above me,

you are dumb. try reading something intelligent.

nobuko rocks.

noise, sound, words they can all be music and art.
you may not like it, cool, but dont dis someone just becasue you are stupid. ha.

i think you are just jealous because we all LOVE nobuko, mr. "i have a chip on my shoulder cuz i studied music for one day in my bedroom but could not figure out how to read the book" guy.
