IMAZATO (STRUGGLE FOR PRIDE）
What do you do?
Throat / Music Selecter
Where are you from?
Shimokitazawa / Tokyo.
What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
Alice Coltrane. I saw her gig in the auditorium at the University of Michigan in November 2006. She passed away in January of the following year, so I think it was probably her last one. I visited a friend who lived in Detroit and I found the flyer at a record shop.
Which sub-cultures have influenced you?
Scooter culture. I’m making a new one currently.
Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
THREE in Shimokitazawa. When I played there with a friend’s band, I made a bet that I could liven up the audience, I didn't lose.
If you could be on the line up with any artist in history?
If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
Vindose. There is a lot to talk to him about.
Your greatest unsung hero (or heroine) in music?
Damon of The Pugilist. A band who were only active for several years in the early 2000's.
