Topic: Fukuoka gig
Hey, I'm new here. I'm a big Polysics fan and I lurk these boards from time to time. I saw Polysics in Fukuoka yesterday, and I wanted to share my impressions.
The venue (Drum Be-1) was pretty small, but that made the feeling of interaction with the band greater, so the small size was good. The place was packed with Polysics fans wearing merchandise from the POLYSICS OR DIE!!!! STORE (I am now too proud owner of a Polysics shirt).
They played lots of my favorite songs, but also songs from their upcoming mini album. The new songs were really hard and fast, right up my alley. Here's what I can remember from their set list, in random order:
Coelakanth is Android
Kaja Kaja Goo
Young Oh! Oh!
Too much Tokyo
For Young Electric Pop
Tei! Tei! Tei!
+ about 5 new songs
I think I got most of them...
Going to a gig in Japan isn't exactly the same as what I'm used to though. During the songs themselves the atmosphere is great, everyone's having a good time. But inbetween the songs everyone is just so damn quiet. During one of these silences I I yelled "FUMIIIII!!!", to break the silence. To which Hayashi responded "Otousan kana?", "Is that her dad?". It got a laugh out of the crowd, and I got a sense of interaction with the band.
I'm really looking forward to their new stuff, as it sounds great.
