A-BONES in Tokyo!

  • OK, so I mentioned in a thread that I was going to see the A-Bones in Tokyo for for a big Tokyo Back from the Grave blowout and there was a request for some photos. There was about 30 bands and I took three or four successful pics. I'm mostly upset that I didn't shoot the 5678's who played as the original band and wore traditional kimonos. I used a crappy Pentax digicam, but when the MUMMIES come around this Halloween I will to have a better camera. First up is the classic style punk band JET BOYS:

    In contrast I got the country, swing and rockabilly group HOT SHOTS.

    And here's a couple decent ones of the A-BONES!

    So many other bands I would like to have gotten including Jackie and the Cedrics (Lars Espensen joined them onstage for a couple numbers!), King Brothers, The Feminine, The Fadeaways (Toyozo did a frontflip off the bass drum as a finale!), The Fly & Miss Tarantula and Theee Bat (who had Sheena & the Rokket's daughter from Darkside Mirrors pounding on sticks!) and the Bait Ones bringing psychedelic trash stomp! But the night was long and left me wiped out with cold for 2 weeks! I promise to be better prepared for when the Mummies come this Fall for the Back from the Grave 20th Anniversary Halloween Ball!
