For example, if Blue Hearts is the ground that was a very soft foundation, and the ground gradually became harder with age. And if it is an image that seems to be an adult is perfectly like a hard concrete, but when you meet good music, it will be cultivating and soft soil condition. It is important to keep it like that. I mean, I am always seeking good music and keeping my style. Their music is the first music that taught me it.

I mean, I am always seeking good music and keeping my style. Their music is the first music that taught me it. I heard “Jonetsu No Bara” and so on, and I dig their music as a child, and I bought and borrowed their CD at record shop and then I made original mix tape called ‘My favorite selection’. [Laughs] And I also like Mr. Children, but I got different message from them. Later on I found the road that are connected to the street, you know, I mean the road takes me street form my house. By listening to Blue Hearts and I could totally change my mind. I wanted something more like a guideline for life. It was like a goal, a way of life, something I wanted to be stronger, I wanted to get better, or more. Then I came to know street music like Reggae and Hip-Hop. In the meantime, I am listening to Hi-Standard (kind of Melodic Hardcore) for a short time. [Laughs] That’s why Blue Hearts is the last person I would like to see in the end but I do not want to meet.

I think my style is over, if I align myself with the opinions of other sides (commercial side). On a different subject, it is better to say “Please listen to this song! This song is wicked!” This is what we should to be.

I was doing a band when I was first grade at senior high school. And I was playing some cover songs like Thee Michelle Gun Elephant and making original songs. But since that time, I knew that I could not do instruments, so there was only I can do is to sing. Fortunately I liked the word. I mean, I liked writing lyrics, you know. The Lyric sometimes writes one song in two to three hours. Feelings are important. On the one hand there are songs that write for months as well. In addition, the bullet train is really good for writing, to watch the landscape go by from the train’s window is good for me. It could be concentrated on writing. In the meantime, the baggage that I started writing lyrics came out from my parents’ home. A large amount of lyrics written on straw paper was coming out among them. Recently I became use iPhone much, but at that time I used to write directly on paper in particular. I was surprised how much lyrics I wrote! (surprised) However these rhymes are so unskillful. But I just realized that this passion pushed me up this stage so far. レゲエ好きな奴らの前でActually, I don’t use much time for writing lyrics. So that everyone often told me “Eh? You made it already?”, but it is said that there are lots of feelings I want to tell you, after all, I have lots of feelings that I want to tell you, after all, I wrote a lot of lyrics at that time and I played hard to put it in lyric so I think that was also a result of it. For example, if you write down “spring”, the thought will be certainly conveyed to others, but if I say “breaking snow, sound of feathers” or “horsetail breaking snow” they means “spring”, right? Whether to say the same thing as “morning” or “dawn” or “the sky turns white” comes even different. Whether to say the same thing as “morning” or “dawn” or “the sky turns white” comes even different. In fact, the expression should be infinite. I think that the power which I have been reading book until now or the ability to say “I like words” can be used more effectively. Former literature, haiku and other expressions are amazingly rich. For example, I found the sentence “the clouds stuck in the wind” written in the brochure inside the bullet train, normally we use just “clouds” but I think like this thing is wonderful. That I can message the people ‘s image by way of telling. I am very conscious of that I do make original words is really important. If I am going to put in my specialty there, I have to know lots of words. I think that the words are weapons and power as well, and that is one of the strengths of 卍LINE so I should improve my skill all the time. I think my style is over, if I align myself with the opinions of other sides (commercial side). On a different subject, it is better to say “Please listen to this song! This song is wicked!” This is what we should to be.

It is the word of same roots; hip hop’s B-boy, rock’s rock, punk’s punk, you know. After all one’s style, one’s life, one’s message is important. In this regard, I have been saying with confidence.

I’m more interested in expressing myself than anything else, Of course I listen to and see people’s expressions, but I’m not hungry for other’s expressions as I used to be. I mean, My mind focus on another place than that. I’m not a tongue twister style Dee-Jay or a bizarre style Dee-Jay. My style is to tell a message firmly. That’s why I have confident to say that “No, my reggae is …” in front of reggae guys, you know. I have my reggae music inside myself so I do not mind letting you say anything whether it is refuted by others. As a result of investigating thoroughly, It is the word of same roots; hip hop’s B-boy, rock’s rock, punk’s punk, you know. After all one’s style, one’s life, one’s message is important. In this regard, I have been saying with confidence. It is natural for you to be cool when you try to be cool. I think that it is like a scene when you are not so. It does not mean you only need to pretend during the show. Everything in life is an expression.
