Topic: Countdown Japan 08/09
A few days ago I went to the Countdown Japan 08/09 to see Polysics, the set list (taken from no more tears blog) was:
Coelakanth is Android
tei tei tei
I MY ME MINE
Moog is Love
Peach Pie on the Beach
Electric Surfin' Go Go
Boys ＆ Girls
So all in all a pretty standard Polysics setlist, the only difference being it was my first time to see them on a huge stage (with err...the exception of the Kaiser Chiefs gigs!). Its also the second time for me to hear Beat Flash and I'm liking it quite a lot, but there is an odd bit with Yano shouting which will probably need to grow on me!
Also on the day I got to watch Beat Crusaders, Shakalabbits, Tsushimamire, Halcali and some other Japanese bands, but possibly the highlight for me was Hiroyuki's DJ set (which someone also posted the setlist for this on the no more tears blog! - I hope its ok to post it)
All of which are pretty much Japanese songs from the 80s and 90s, all except a few I had never heard before. Still despite Hiro's Djing skills not being up to scratch, he pretty much put all his effort into dancing and singing along to the songs!!
All in all, it was my first festival in Japan and definitely was better than any I had been to in the Uk. Now, I just need to find some way of going to Rock in Japan!
