I am now a devoted fan of Peelander-Z.
Yes, I did go to the show last night,
Not only was I blown away, but I got to play the drums for them, and Peelander Yellow took a liking to me. I also ended up with an autographed bag, free stickers, and lots of pictures with relativly cute Japanese punk stars! Eeeeeeeeeee.....
I WILL EXPLAIN AS THE PHOTOS PROGRESS.
TAKE A LOOK...
I have never experienced anything quite like this.
ALLLLRIGHT. A SHITLOAD of pictures coming up. How to explain. Well. Here is a picture I snuck of Peelander Yellow, looking perfectly normal and Japanese, sleeping during the opening band, " Daikaiju". All the members of Peelander-Z were asleep. Touring is exhausting, apparently. ^_^
Alright. First band ended, and they all woke up and started setting up to play. This is shot of Peelander Yellow setting up his toys on his amp.
NOW it gets a bit complicated. All three of them hid backstage, and " The Announcer" came out to Announce each Peelander member as they came out on stage.
" RADIES AND GENTERMAN! IT IS TIME FO PEERANDER- ZEEEEEE!!!"
He held up signs that read " Peelander Red, Peelander Blue, Peelander Yellow" I didn't get a shot of the red sign, but I DID get a shot of Peelander Red coming out on stage.
And there he was, The Champ.
PEELANDER YELLOW! ( in a banana suit.)
TAKEU A PICTURE!!!
And now, some pictures from when they were playing. not much to explain here.
During the show they also brought random people from the audience up on stage to DANCE!. They were big on audience interaction, it was awesome.
At this point they were a good way through the show, and it was time for their " Human Bowling" act. SO. They held up signs saying, " GUITARIST WANTED" " BASSIST WANTED" and "DRUMMER WANTED".
I was standing up front, and I've been playing the drums for 8 years now, so I HAD TO BE PICKED. HAD TO. And I was.
Here is the magnificent champion Peelander Blue, giving up his drum throne to me, and patting me on the head with a " thumbs up". I played for about 20 minutes while they used each other as bowling balls. Peelander Red kept giving me thumbs up. ^_^
playing drums and wearing a skirt is very hard.
( correction:playing the drums and wearing those SHOES is...stupid.)
After they let the people play their instruments, I got a pat on the head from Peelander Blue, a " Goodu Jobu!" from Peelander Red, and a "WWAAAAOOOOOO!" from Peelander Yellow.
Later on, Peelander Blue BROKE OUT HIS BIG STICKS AND PLAYED A BIG CYMBAL!
YAY PEELANDER BLUE!
Then, they did a little dance.
After they were finished playing.
Peelander Yellow came and found me and I spoke to him in Japanese and he got all excited and wanted me to talk alot in Japanese, but I dont know too much, so instead we decided to take pictures together. These are certainly some pictures.
Here is Peelander Yellow, ( he seemd to take a liking to me.) And Amanda and I .
And here is some guy with Peelander Yellow drawn on his leg.
Peelander Yellow is saying, " DATSA MEEE!!!"
And I am looking...surprized. I kind of look that way in every photo.
Its me! With Peelander Blue!( looking cool and japanese) The Drummer boy! And he has the Lollipop I gave him!
( I gave them all lollipops.)
I also got my bag autographed, and a pin, and two of their cds, and a free sticker.
( if you cant read japanese, the japanese part is my name, with a heart by it.)
And my PIN!!
