THREE LIGHTS DOWN KINGS - Dear Future... (english translation)

This is probably not the most accurate translation in the world, but I think the basic idea is there.

u-ya's screamed lines are written in [].

Dear Future…

Lyrics: Glielmo Ko-ichi
Music: Glielmo Ko-ichi, u-ya

I draw out my dream, and hold on tight to my future
I’m going to start drawing it by myself
Always, yeah always, until I reach the end that’s still not in sight
Holding onto my sense of values and my impulses,
I face the future that’s spreading out before me with my wish

Even if the scenery flowing by is—[even if it’s a created fairy tale of a universe]*

We don’t care
Step by step
There’s another miracle
Step my way
The world waiting for us in the future
Step by step
It won’t fade
Step my way
These words won’t either

[I heard a voice calling us to the future a little again]

I run out of breath, and my voice gets hoarse
I’ll figure it out by myself
Surely, yes surely, until I reach the end that’s still not in sight
It’s like I’m too self-satisfied right now
I take another look at myself and make a wish**

This scenery that’s revolving around—[even if it’s a created fairy tale of a universe]

We don’t care
Step by step
The paths we take layer over each other
Step my way
We’ll take hold of this world
Step by step
Without rushing
Step my way
In this age

Both in this reality,
And in the future we’re heading towards,
The thoughts we’ve piled up and the thoughts connecting us start to move
Towards our world, waiting for us in the future
So these words will reach,
Let your voice ring out

[Even if it’s a created fairy tale of a universe
Everything has side stories beside it***
And there, another miracle will see the light from the stories]***

To the you that’s waiting in the future
To the future me
And to this certain feeling
Your decisions are what make your tomorrow

[Even if it’s a created fairy tale of a universe]

We don’t care
Step by step
There’s another miracle
Step my way
The world waiting for us in the future
Step by step
Won’t fade
Step my way
These words won’t either

We don’t care
Step by step
The paths we take layer over each other
Step my way
We’ll take hold of this world
Step by step
Without rushing
Step my way
In this age

[I heard a voice calling us to the future a little again]

Notes:
*Or maybe “even if this universe is a fairy tale”? That might make more sense
**I’m not sure about how to read this line
*** ?? I don't know how to interpret this

Dear Future…

Risou egaite, mirai daite
Egakidasu boku jishin o
Mada minu hate made mo zutto, sou zutto
Jinsei kachikan to shoudou
Hirogaru mirai e no ganbou o

Moshi nagareru kono keshiki ga
[EVEN IF IT’S A CREATED FAIRY TALE OF THE UNIVERSE]

WE DON’T CARE
STEP BY STEP kiseki ga mata hitotsu
STEP MY WAY mirai de matsu sekai
STEP BY STEP iroaseru koto nai mama
STEP MY WAY kono kotoba mo

[I HEARD A VOICE THAT CALLING US TO THE FUTURE A LITTLE AGAIN]

Iki kirashite, koe karashite
Sagashidasu boku jishin o
Mada minu hate made mo kitto, sou kitto
Jikomanzoku-teki sugiru genjou
Minaosu jibun e no ganbou o

Meguri-yuku kono kisetsu ga
[EVEN IF IT’S A CREATED FAIRY TALE OF THE UNIVERSE]

WE DON’T CARE
STEP BY STEP kasaneta kono kiseki
STEP MY WAY tsukande kono sekai
STEP BY STEP hayamaru koto nai mama
STEP MY WAY kono jidai de

Kono genjitsu mo
Kono saki no mirai mo
Kasanaru omoi to tsunagaru omoi ga ugokidashite
Mirai de matsu bokura no sekai e
Kono kotoba ga todokimasu you ni
Koe ni dashite

[EVEN IT’S A CREATED FAIRY TALE OF THE UNIVERSE
EVERYTHING HAS ITS EACH SIDE STORIES BESIDE THEM
AND THERE, ANOTHER MIRACLE WILL SEE THE LIGHT FROM THE STORIES]

Mirai de matsu kimi
Mirai no kono boku e
Tashika ni kono omoi o ashita e
Ketsui ga kimi no ashita o tsukuru

[EVEN IF IT’S A CREATED FAIRY TALE OF THE UNIVERSE]

WE DON’T CARE

STEP MY WAY mirai de matsu sekai
STEP BY STEP iroaseru koto nai mama
STEP MY WAY

THREE LIGHTS DOWN KINGS - As I'm Alive (english translation)

I love this song, but I wish they’d get someone to look their English over. Their lyrics are so close to being really good, but the shady grammar makes them hard to read. 

I tweaked some of the more Engrish-y lines in the translation to make it sound less awkward, but the romaji has the original lyrics.

u-ya's screamed lines are written in [].



As I’m Alive

Lyrics: Glielmo Ko-ichi
Music: Glielmo Ko-ichi/u-ya

Here’s the world that I’ve arrived at
The inspiration that I’m continuing to search for
Here's what our impulse has driven us to*
That’s a little scary sometimes
Once in a while I’ve lost sight of it
But even if the pieces I’ve piled up come to nothing,

[The driving force of our emotion shakes off the reality approaching you
As I’m alive, revive once again]

Not too late
Not too late
That’s how I’m here

It's just begun
Everything is in my two hands now
Breaking or saving it is in my hands now
[Wake up!! Stand up!!]
Persuade myself
That’s how I’m here

Everything doesn’t always turn out my best
So we have the right reason to embrace the future
[Wake up!! Stand up!!]
Persuade myself
That’s how I’m here

[The regret that everyone has once faced
Has great value to the future]

Here’s the world that I’ve arrived at
Destination-less frustration
Here's what our impulse has driven us to
Sometimes there are obstacles,
And once in a while I’ve wandered around aimlessly
But even if the pieces I’ve piled up crumble down,

[The driving force of our emotion shakes off the reality approaching you
As I’m alive, revive once again]

Not too late
Not too late
That’s how I’m here

It's just begun
Everything is in my two hands now
Breaking or saving it is in my hands now
[Wake up!! Stand up!!]
Persuade myself
That’s how I’m here

Everything doesn’t always turn out my best
So we have the right reason to embrace the future
[Wake up!! Stand up!!]
Persuade myself
That’s how I’m here

[The regret that everyone has once faced
Has great value to the future]

The time for consideration has already ended
[Piled up emotion is the only thing] you can depend on in this coming [momentary decision]

Everything is in my two hands now
Breaking or saving it is in my hands now
Persuade myself
That’s how I’m here

[The driving force of our emotion shakes off the reality approaching you
As I’m alive, revive once again]

It's just begun
Everything is in my two hands now
Breaking or saving it is in my hands now
[Wake up!! Stand up!!]
Persuade myself
That’s how I’m here

Everything doesn’t always turn out my best
So we have the right reason to embrace the future
[Wake up!! Stand up!!]
Persuade myself
That’s how I’m here

[The regret that everyone has once faced
Has great value to the future]

Notes:
*Or maybe "Here's the world that our impulse has driven us to" ?

As I’m Alive

HERE’S WORLD THAT I’VE ARRIVED
Motome-tsuzukeru INSUPIREESHON
HERE’S IMPULSE DRIVE US TO
Sorya toki ni wa kowaku natte
ONCE IN A WHILE I’VE miushinatte
PILED PIECES ZERO ni nattemo

[THE DRIVING FORCE OF OUR EMOTION SHAKES
OFF THE APPROACHING REALITY TO YOU
AS I’M ALIVE REVIVE ONCE AGAIN]

NOT TOO LATE
NOT TOO LATE
THAT’S HOW I’M HERE

JUST BEGAN
Subete ga ALL IN MY TWO HANDS NOW
BREAKING OR SAVING INSIDE MY HAND NOW
[WAKE UP!! STAND UP!!]
PERSUADE MYSELF
THAT’S HOW I’M HERE

Subete ga NOT ALWAYS TURN OUT MY BEST
SO THERE IS THE RIGHT REASON FOR FUTURE
[WAKE UP!! STAND UP!!]
PERSUADE MYSELF
THAT’S HOW I’M HERE

[THE REGRET THAT EVERYONE THAT HAS ONCE FACE TO
TO FUTURE IT MAKES THE GREAT VALUE]

HERE’S WORLD THAT I’VE ARRIVED
Yukiba no nai FURASUTOREESHON
HERE’S IMPULSE DRIVE US TO
Sorya toki ni wa jama ni natte
ONCE IN A WHILE I’VE samayotte
PILED PIECES kuzureochitemo

[THE DRIVING FORCE OF OUR EMOTION SHAKES
OFF THE APPROACHING REALITY TO YOU]

NOT TOO LATE
NOT TOO LATE
THAT’S HOW I’M HERE

JUST BEGAN
Subete ga ALL IN MY TWO HANDS NOW
BREAKING OR SAVING INSIDE MY HAND NOW
[WAKE UP!! STAND UP!!]
PERSUADE MYSELF
THAT’S HOW I’M HERE

Subete ga NOT ALWAYS TURN OUT MY BEST
SO THERE IS THE RIGHT REASON FOR FUTURE
[WAKE UP!! STAND UP!!]
PERSUADE MYSELF
THAT’S HOW I’M HERE

[THE REGRET THAT EVERYONE THAT HAS ONCE FACE TO
TO FUTURE IT MAKES THE GREAT VALUE]

CONSIDERATION HAS ALREADY STOPPED
[PILED UP EMOTION IS THE ONLY THING]
YOU CAN DEPEND ON IN THIS COMING [MOMENTARY DECISION]

Subete ga ALL IN MY TWO HANDS NOW
BREAKING OR SAVING INSIDE MY HAND NOW
PERSUADE MYSELF
THAT’S HOW I’M HERE

[THE DRIVING FORCE OF OUR EMOTION SHAKES
OFF THE APPROACHING REALITY TO YOU
AS I’M ALIVE
REVIVE ONCE AGAIN]

JUST BEGAN
Subete ga ALL IN MY TWO HANDS NOW
BREAKING OR SAVING INSIDE MY HAND NOW
[WAKE UP!! STAND UP!!]
PERSUADE MYSELF
THAT’S HOW I’M HERE

Subete ga NOT ALWAYS TURN OUT MY BEST
SO THERE IS THE RIGHT REASON FOR FUTURE
[WAKE UP!! STAND UP!!]
PERSUADE MYSELF
THAT’S HOW I’M HERE

[THE REGRET THAT EVERYONE THAT HAS ONCE FACE TO
TO FUTURE IT MAKES THE GREAT VALUE]

Now, let’s go to the future
Let’s go towards that future
Towards that light
We’re in the dark, but we’re heading forward
We haven’t given up yet

(Kj)
Now, let’s go to the future
Let’s go towards that future
After looking up at the sky,
Let's start walking, knowing that we’re not alone
Let’s make our voices resound

(ALL)
We’re not alone

(AKIHIRO NAMBA)
Now, let’s go to the future

Let's start walking, knowing that we’re not alone

We can prove that we will ride again

We can prove that we rise to our feet again
We can prove that we will ride again

(Shinichi Ubukata guitar solo)

(HAYASHI)
Now, let’s go to the future
Let’s go towards that future
Towards that light
We’re in the dark, but we’re heading forward
We haven’t given up yet

(HIROSUKE)
Now, let’s go to the future
Let’s go towards that future
After looking up at the sky,
Let's start walking, knowing that we’re not alone
Let’s make our voices resound

(ALL)
We’re not alone

(Takeshi Ueda + guest vocalists)
Now, let’s go to the future
Let’s go towards that future

(ALL)
We’re not alone

We’re not alone

(Takayoshi Shirakawa)
Ima, mirai e GO*
Sono mirai e GO

(Takeshi Ueda + guest vocalists)
Ima mirai e GO
Sono mirai e GO

(ALL)
WE’RE NOT ALONE

Note: This is written as "ikou" in the kanji lyrics, but I saw it written on the AA=AiD site as "GO" and I think it sounds more like that in the song. It doesn't really make a difference, because ikou = "let's go" in Japanese.

AA= - The Klock (english translation)



The Klock

Lyrics: Takeshi Ueda, Takayoshi Shirakawa
Music: Takeshi Ueda

A chapter of reminiscing
A person not in this world
That memory is becoming rigid, therefore there’s no order*
Now, the world I’m living in has been flipped upside-down

Our positions were reversed at that time
And now, they’re inverting again
3, 2, 1

Turn over this mad maze
The reverse is the case
Turn over the mad face
The reverse is the case

The reverse in this case, re:birth…
Now, it’s reversing again
3, 2, 1

Everyday reflection
A person that’s not in this world
The memory is becoming rigid, therefore there’s no order
Her world is inverting

Turn the facts over in my mind
Now, they’re reversing again
3, 2, 1

Turn over this mad maze
The reverse is the case
Turn over the mad face
The reverse is the case

The reverse in this case, re:birth…
Now, it’s reversing again
3, 2, 1

Inverted the klock

Go back in time
Turn the facts over…

I realized, I hurt you

I was dreaming, I was passing through
I was dreaming, and I hurt you

Inverted the klock

Go back in time
Go back the way we came
Turn the facts over

I realized, I hurt you

I was dreaming, I ended up passing by
I was dreaming, and I hurt you

I realized, I hurt you

You hurt
The scars hurt
My heart hurts
I lost you

Notes:
* Not sure about this one

TURN OVER THIS MAD MAZE

TURN OVER THE MAD FACE
THE REVERSE IS THE CASE

THE REVERSE IN THIS CASE, RE:BIRTH…
Ima mata hanten suru

Kaisou suru nichijou
Kono sekai de wa nai mono

TURN THE FACTS OVER IN MY MIND

TURN OVER THIS MAD MAZE
THE REVERSE IS THE CASE
TURN OVER THE MAD FACE
THE REVERSE IS THE CASE

THE REVERSE IN THIS CASE, RE:BIRTH…

INVERTED THE KLOCK
INVERTED THE KLOCK
INVERTED THE KLOCK

andymori - Transit in Thailand (english translation)

Transit in Thailand

Music and Lyrics: Souhei Oyamada

Transit in Thailand
Tonight as well white, black and yellow monkeys are dancing at a party
CNN’s explosive sound*
A road movie that capitalists are crazy about

Sawadee clap your hands**

Transit in Thailand
A beach party I’m struggling through with my body like a jellyfish
On the other side of the horizon that the retired old men are gazing at, a brand new game is waiting***

Sawadee clap your hands

Transit in Thailand
The monkeys crowd the Khaosan Road
Boys and girls and a blind singer smile back at me

Notes:
*I don’t know what CNN he means
**I think this is a play on words? “Sawadee krap” (or various other slightly different pronunciations/spellings of it) seems to be a Thai greeting used by men, but I guess since the end sounds like “kurappu” (loan word for “clap”) Souhei fused the two words together and it’s like “Hello, clap your hands”
***Not sure about this line

Transit in Thailand

TORANJITTO IN TAIRANDO konya mo shiro ya kuro ya kiiro no saru-tachi ga odoru PAATII

Finally getting around to listening to TRUE IMPULSE. Good stuff!

STOP!

Lyrics: Tetsu Takano
Music: Tetsu Takano, Ryouji Okamoto

I’m connected to the network
I’m following the network
I’m wandering around the network

Gimme your secrets
Gimme confidential information
1, 2, 3 and STOP

Gimme your lies
Gimme confidential information
1, 2, 3 and STOP
1, 2, 3 and STOP
1, 2, 3, STOP & GO

I don’t notice the vortex*
I don’t realize that I’m crazy about it, but
When I’m in the middle of something, I can’t stop

Gimme your voice
Gimme your song
Won’t you please, don’t stop
Won’t you please, don’t stop
Gimme your ideals
Gimme your delusions
Won’t you please, don’t stop
Won’t you please, don’t stop
Won’t you please, don’t stop & go

I’ve waited until now
Press the switch
Fumbling around, I press the switch**
What I’ve been waiting for starts now***
Put your disagreements in too
Take it all in

Gimme your voice
Gimme your song
Won’t you please, don’t stop
Won’t you please, don’t stop
Gimme your ideals
Gimme your delusions
Won’t you please, don’t stop
Won’t you please, don’t stop
Won’t you please, don’t stop & go

Suck a Stew Dry - Payment (english translation)

A few lines of this might be wrong, but I think it's pretty easy to understand what's going on, for the most part.

Payment

Lyrics: Shinoyama Kosei

I’m on my hands and knees over three tatami mats
I’m not doing anything, and I don’t want to do anything either
Tokyo is so big, isn’t it?
I already don’t feel like going outside

Even though I’m not moving,
Somehow I start wanting food
People are full of desires*
If you can’t live, I wonder if you’re still a living thing?**

Ah, I guess I can’t live without working
Ah, I guess I can’t live without working

There is my payment.
I have to make this payment.
There is my payment.

I’m on my hands and knees in Tokyo
I’m not doing anything, and I don’t want to do anything either
Three tatami mats is so big, isn’t it?
I’m living, and that’s enough

Ah, I guess I can’t live without working
Ah, I guess I can’t live without working

There is my payment.
I have to make this payment.
There is my payment.

Is it okay to make just living my goal?
Is it okay to go on just thinking about living?

There is my payment.
I have to make this payment.
There is my payment.

I have to pay

Notes:
*Not confident about this line at all. I'm pretty sure that it's wrong, but I don't know how else to read it.
**Whenever it says “live” from this point on, I wonder if he means “make a living?”
Like, “Is it okay to go on just thinking about making a living and nothing else?”

Payment

This one isn't too great. I'd take another look at it but I'm not really crazy about this song anyway.

Salvage

Music and Lyrics: Jun Onose

Into the deepest possible place
Come, let’s keep falling
The hand I held out, can you see it now?

Salvage
Salvage
Catch the light
Salvage
Salvage
Like a razor

To boundless heights,
That’s it, pierce through to them
I’ll entrust the fuse to blow away the world to you
Tonight

Salvage
Salvage
Seize the light
Salvage
Salvage
In your hand

Right now, in your heart

Salvage
Salvage
Before I make a
Salvage
Salvage
Vow to God

It’s like my heart is bursting
The vivid, endless darkness and endless light
Your world’s end and its beginning
Resound right now

Salvage
Salvage
Make the light pour down
Salvage
Salvage
Harder; more violently

Carve it into your heart right now

I’m your fire*

Seize the light

This is your last moment’s revolution

Music and Lyrics: TAKUYA

At the edge of this city,
After sleepless nights, I was able to be made
I still don’t have arms yet, but
I’m the latest style of robot

GA GA GA GA GA I’m a robot

With the switch on, I took off
Any kind of order is fine
I don’t fly in the sky, but
I’m the latest style of robot

But my body always needs service
And sometimes that’s very sad

I like red oil,
But I like black oil too
If I drink juice, I will rust

A robot, I dance
A robot, but because I dream too
A robot, I sing

GLAY - I am XXX (english translation)

This is probably a little sketchy...



I am XXX


Music and Lyrics: TAKURO

One day, after I fell asleep,
A different me began to awake

In a different era, but at the same place
Please, somehow, I want you to love me

The pollution of the sky we always used to look up at, and other things like that
Won’t be forgiven

These eyes, this blood, this nature
Show that I can probably not go to that place*

Oh, days decorated with dreams
Throw away your hesitation

Yes I am Oh yes I am
If I hug you close, the destruction will end
Passing through the nights we cried,
Because the two of us will swear to become devils

Yes I am Oh yes I am
Oh We are in love

Even before the black tears dried,
I pressed my lips to yours

Oh days gone by,
Underneath the unreachable moon

Yes I am Oh yes I am
I want to accept myself

More and more, I can’t even see that fact
I’ve become dirty

Yes I am Oh yes I am
I’m in the dark
Even through this loneliness,
I'll tell you it's a gentle pain, and, that with these heavy wings, I want to fly away...**

Notes:
* Pretty sure ”that place” = Heaven, since this seems to be about a vampire
** Not sure about this line

I am XXX

J - Final Call (english translation)

This is an old one, so it's probably not too accurate.

Final Call

Music and Lyrics: Jun Onose

This is your last chance
Well, will you make your last bet?*
In the middle of a thrill you can never reach again

This is the final call
Like bursting into flames
Just a strain time
Blurring sweat
Throbbing beat
Shoot through into the future

Every single day, every single night
Now, grip the time you’ve searched for and spread the wings of freedom

Grasp** that heart
As if it’s going to explode
Offer up a prayer
When the beat you’ve etched into your mind begins to overflow,
The gate will give way

Every single day, every single night
Now, grip the time you’ve searched for and spread the wings of freedom
Every single day, every single night
Smash that irritating time and reach full bloom

The goddess smiles, and***

Like a shower of sparks that have burned out, your last hope

Every single day, every single night
Now, grip the time you’ve searched for and spread the wings of freedom
Every single day, every single night
Smash that irritating time and reach full bloom

It resounds

This is the final call

Notes:
*Not sure about the exact wording of this
**Seems like the heart is being compared to a bomb, so think of it like “gain control of it”, “disarm it”, “stop it”, etc.
***Could be “Smile, my goddess”. I am not sure.

幸せになろう / Let's Be Happy
  
Lyrics: 43K, EIG
Music: SHIMADA, KAZU-O, HAYATO 
 
Only holy the special girl
You're my sunshine, the beautiful day
Only holy the special girl
You're my sunshine, forever love

(43K)
I wonder what is called “true love”.  
Is it a love like in a drama?
If that’s the case, it doesn’t seem possible for a whole lifetime
You’re impatient with me, and this responsibility is heavy.*
But even though I don’t have money, I’m indecisive,
And I’m a bit of an unreliable guy,
I still want to love you and make you happy
Honestly
From now on, I want to share both the small joys and sorrows with you
Smiling together, crying together, we’ll walk together down one road
After ten years, without changing, the happy days with you will continue
I wish to be able to spend my life with you; forever

When I met you and fell in love
I was truly happy, baby
With you, like this,
Always, always
With you always beside me,
I want to watch the morning sun together
The two of us, like this
Let’s be happy

(EIG)
From when we met until now…
How many times have we gone out to meet the sun together?
After that, and in the future,**
I want to see you by my side
Any day when you’re with me,
My heart becomes peaceful
“Today too, I wonder if I’ll do my best” I think uncharacteristically
This kind of day will continue
I think about that and I get a little nervous
But the days when we’re together, more than anything, I’m happy
No matter how many years it takes,
No matter what kind of future awaits,
My feelings for you alone will never change

When I met you and fell in love
I was truly happy, baby
With you, like this,
Always, always
With you always beside me,
I want to watch the morning sun together
The two of us, like this
Let’s be happy

(43K)
On rainy days, and on clear days too
I’ll walk with you
Everyday
Forever
Everyday
I’ll hold you, and I’ll never let you go, yeah 

(EIG)
On the uphill road in the future
On land without tracks
I walk alone
With nothing but meaningless chatter***
More than money, more than looks, more than anything, my heart thinks of you
Including the past and anything else,****
I love you
In the future too
Everyday, we’ll feel this love

When I met you and fell in love
I was truly happy, baby
With you, like this,
Always, always
With you always beside me,
I want to watch the morning sun together
The two of us, like this
Let’s be happy 

(43K)
On rainy days, and on clear days too
I’ll walk with you
Everyday
Forever
Everyday
I’ll hold you, and I’ll never let you go, yeah

You're my sunshine, forever love

The Birthday - NIGHT LINE (english translation)

This is probably not too accurate. I don't really get what's going on in some places.



NIGHT LINE

Lyrics: Chiba Yusuke
Music: The Birthday

From here the future is a night line
A welcome from inside the darkness
A simple place where even the buzzing in my ears is gone
Do you wanna dance?
Oh
Do you wanna dance?
Oh

I’m lost in the resounding trumpets
I can see Al Pacino wearing a knit cap
Do you wanna dance?
Do you wanna dance?

She always waits for dawn
I always wait for sleep to come
But we’re one; inside and out
We’re tied together, and we spin round and round like a coin
Do you wanna dance?
Do you wanna dance?
Do you wanna dance?
Do you wanna dance?

From here the future is a night line
A welcome from inside the darkness
Do you wanna dance?
Do you wanna dance?

Look, the setting sun
When you’re fascinated by it,
The man in the moon’s voice calls out “From here, the future is a night line”
Do you wanna
Do you wanna
Do you wanna dance with me?
Do you wanna dance with me?
Do you wanna dance?

NIGHT LINE

koko kara saki NIGHT LINE yami no naka ni WELCOME

DO YOU WANNA DANCE? OH

"Recording 2"


The rhythm recording is finished, and guitar recording started today.

Picture.

This time I have more guitars and amps than usual, and I am also preparing many effectors.
It’s a recording where I’m working on producing the sounds that are echoing in my head, while also making the new sound I’m searching for.

It takes time and work, but when I find the sound that I’m looking for, and when I’m able to record a take that we can agree on, it gets to the point that even that kind of struggle can be written off, and I’m happy.
Today I finished one song. A beautiful and delicate-sounding guitar part was recorded.

Tomorrow will also be guitar recording.

"Recording"


Recording is coming along well.
Today while I’m making music I’m thinking about the guitar’s phrase.

Picture.

I take this amp’s picture every time we’re recording. Its appearance is exactly the same, but if the vacuum tubes inside Marshall amps change, the sound is also changed quite a bit. It’s a good feeling.

And so, after tomorrow more and more recording will begin. We’ll start with the rhythm.
During this time we’ll also be caught up in things like playing lives, but because we’ve got more time than usual scheduled, we’re going to take our time with recording.
It’s the beginning of a long recording.

“Peacefully in the middle of recording”


NCIS is in the middle of recording.
And so, today I’m in the midst of recording my guitar parts.

These are the guitars prepared for this time. I’ll also be trying out new ones.

Picture

And here are my effectors. There are lots for distortion and delay. Those two things are definitely interesting.

Picture

We’ll continue recording in a little while.

“Still More”


We’ve been in the middle of recording for a while.
The guitar recording was safely finished, and today we’re putting things like synthesizer sounds into the songs and doing the last phrase check.

In this kind of break as well, we’re doing things like making new songs, rehearsing for lives and NCIS is pushing forward into the future.

And so today, on our new HP a new live video of “Falling Peaces”* has been uploaded. Definitely, please try to watch it.

Today as well, the four of us are in the studio.

Notes:
*Ubu-san’s spelling of English song titles seems a little sketchy. He’s close, but he always seems to be just a little off. It’s kind of cute.

“NEW Equipment”


Since we finished the first stage of live performances, we’d been spending some time on production. Finishing up making new music again feels good.

And so, today we checked our equipment in the studio.

-Picture-

Since Yoshii-san’s tour will also start from next month, in order to support him as well I tried to test out my various new equipment and add it to my gear. It seems like my effectors have increased a bit more. As a result, I’m a little worried that it won’t fit into my board, but YAMAJUN is supposed to do it for me somehow later.

While we will also be checking our gear tomorrow, it’s studio work.*

Notes:
*Maybe he means something like “It’s part of the job” ?

“Flower & Powerlight Tour 2011 ~born again~”


Yoshii Kazuya-san’s tour has started.

Picture

The Sapporo and Sendai shows are done. There were a lot of things that I experienced for the first time, and also uneasiness, but now when I try to play a live I’ve gotten to the point where I feel almost as though we’ve been playing together for a very long time, so I’m really having fun and I can perform onstage.

Nevertheless, as one would expect, it’s Yoshii-san and the original members’ stage.* Even though I’m a newcomer, I’m still proud enough to say that, if it’s this band, I predict that we’re going to keep getting better on this tour.** However, I can honestly say that this is a great band. Tomorrow is Chiba Prefecture’s cultural centre.

Ah, and these finally arrived today.

Picture.

My picks.

I had the pick’s thickness and hardness redone many times, and now it’s finally perfect; it’s an obsessive person’s pick.*** I’d been using plain ones for a while, but the design that was printed on these is perfect.

I’ll use them during the lives starting from tomorrow. Tomorrow as well, from the beginning to the end, I’ll devote myself completely to playing the guitar.

Notes:
*, ** I don't know about these sentences. The second one especially.
***He says "It's my obsession's/pickiness's pick". Maybe something like "It's a pick born from my obsessiveness." would communicate that better?

"As I thought, it's interesting"


As I thought, even though I’m 35, manga is still interesting.

I read Crows*, which I’d read countless times before, with my heart pounding the whole time.

Lindaman** is the best!

Yankee*** mangas are textbooks for boys, aren’t they?

They teach things like the importance of friendship and how one must not act towards people, although also fighting. (lol)

Everyone, what kind of manga do you recommend?

Notes:
*A manga series about a delinquent school
http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=3406
**A character in Crows and its spin-off “Linda Linda”
***Japanese delinquent

“Tour Rehearsal”

Rehearsal for Yoshii Kazuya-san’s tour is beginning.

With things like events with Yoshii-san, I had the opportunity to work together with him, but this is my first time participating as a tour member.

I’m being supported by the undulating groove of the band members’ steady performance, and while that helps, I’m determined to practice every day. Even if I do, every day is stimulating and, therefore, it’s fun. I feel like time is passing in the blink of an eye. There are another six days left before the first day of the tour, but I'm practicing now anyway.*

This is the studio after the end of rehearsal.

*Picture.*
This is the roadie duo of Jun and Junpei playing my guitars. They’re close friends.
So then, NCIS also has a few lives to announce for next year.

In December and January of next year will be NCIS’s “Hand in Hand” event. The first time around will be in Sendai with 9mm, and we’ll play the second with the band apart in Nagoya. Both are bands that we always try to play lives with. Right now, I'm really looking forward to it.

Now then, rehearsal for Yoshii-san will continue tomorrow as well.

Notes:
*I'm not positive about that last bit. Original Japanese is: 今はとにかく練習です。

“Thank You”

Today, the “echo” tour* finished at Shinkiba Studio Coast.

It was a wonderful final.

Being my usual tongue-tied self, during the live I couldn’t really say my feelings well, but to everyone that came to today’s Shinkiba live, and to everyone who participated in this tour, to all of you, from my heart; thank you. Honestly, thank you!

We’re making the music we love, and in general that’s a sort of crazy thing to do, but because there are lots of people that feel something from it and do things like listen to us and come to our lives, we are truly blessed and I think I want to do the final we finished today all over again. And so, it seems likely that there will also be more to come in the future.

Even though the tour is over, for the time being NCIS will enter a period of production**. More and more, we’re going to be thinking of creating music that will honestly reflect our feelings and resound in peoples’ hearts.

Ah, since we will occasionally appear at events and things like that, we will have lives. NCIS’s HP has the details. From now on as well, please take care of me!

Notes:
*I think it was actually called the "Tour echo" tour, but that sounds a little awkward
**I assume this means working on new music

SNAKE ON THE BEACH - 19:40 (english translation)

I love this one. I think most of it turned out pretty well, but it gets a little sketchy towards the end.

19:40

Music and Lyrics: Chiba Yusuke

Baby, I’m heading towards you now
So don’t worry
It’s cold outside
If the air dries up, I wonder if it’s going to snow?

The wind is strong,
And I can’t see in front of me
But, because I know the way,

Baby, if the snow piles up
Let’s build a snow hut
And let’s make it our secret hideout

I’m heading towards you,
And since I’ll be able to touch you soon,
Wait for me, baby

Hello baby

A rider that should be turning into the wind*
In the middle of an intersection underneath the buildings, he’s collapsing
What he saw from there was
A line of ants
The sound of the sewer drain
The smell of spices
Irregular car blinkers

It was just right.
It was the dramatic way to die he’d been searching for.**
I wonder what that girl would say if she saw me like this?***

Hello baby

Oh baby!

Notes:
*I’m not sure about this line. I think he means a guy on a motorcycle had an accident, so he isn't riding fast like he should be?
**Not sure if it’s “he’d been searching for” or “I’d been searching for”, since “kare” is used earlier and he seems to be watching someone
***Not sure how to read this either, so don’t take my word on it

19:40
