June 9, 2013 ... in Osaka, Japan, the rainy season begins these days and it was a bit wet and hot ... also in Nakatsu Vi-Code, where http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=4699" rel="nofollow - DJAMRA , http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=6854" rel="nofollow - ZONK MONK , and Taku YABUKI UNIT (Taku, active in Tokyo, has already been quite renowned as an ex-keyboardist of http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=1218" rel="nofollow - KOENJIHYAKKEI ). We had ALREADY absorbed in such an amazing atmosphere, actually!

At first, our super twin-female-keyboard-based Neo-Prog combo http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=6854" rel="nofollow - ZONK MONK appeared on stage, with fascinating mystic beauty via two gorgeous (but aggressive) keyboardists.
The following track was http://www.progarchives.com/mp3.asp?id=5528" rel="nofollow - "U.T. - A Hole In Danger" ... an exhaustive mixture of pop / danceable sections and horrifying heavy depth via metallic keyboard sounds. Very addictive as well.
But their play did never crash at all, of course. The third "Air", a traditional song for them, reminded us something safe and sound, as if we had left ourselves into the green air, created mainly by Ai's fingers.
http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=4699" rel="nofollow - DJAMRA came out upon the stage, after http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=6854" rel="nofollow - ZONK MONK 's fascinating gig. Yes today was "keyboardist day", and Takehiko FUKUDA (keyboards) in disguise with silver hair (what a hoot).

The first is their masterpiece "Kamihitoe" ... heavy groove around them as well!
Their newest one "Kihihi", a instrumental track that represents a mad yellow baboon attacks a group of flamingos, reminded us brutal scenes like the end of a flamingo life ... with Masaharu's lazy MC (called as "matchlock gun talk, not machine gun talk" by Masaharu lol).
