About London nights♪

やっとBlogに音楽の事を書き始めようと思います。
Finally, I will write down about music.

こっちに来てから、まあ、clubに行く友達が居なかったと言うのが
一番の理由だろうけど、そこまでガツガツと夜遊びをしてませんでした。
むしろ、日本に居る時の方が出歩いてたくらい。
Since I came to London, I didn't go to night club rather than
when I was in Japan, because I didn't have fellows much enough
for going to the club.

それでも、暇な週末や気の向いた時には何かしら音楽のある場所へ足を
運んでたんで、ここ最近の夜遊び日記を纏めて書いてみようと思います。
Still, I attend to somewhere playing music when I want to feel in
the mood or free weekends, so I'll write about these London nights.

思えば、十数年前に初めて夜の遊びを覚えた頃は、すべてが新しく刺激的
で自分が一晩の内に一回りデカイ男になった様な錯覚を覚えたり、仲間と
生涯忘れられないだろう感動を共にしたり、昼では絶対に味わう事が出来
ないスリリングな夜を切り抜けたりと、エンターテイメントともまた違う
奇妙な運命のメビウスがそこら中に在ったのを思い出します。
I remember that when I was end of teenager, I went out in the midnight,
there are many surprise muse everywhere, for example, I had felt to
be stronger man than the before day(unfortunately that is always illusion),
I shared precious time with my fellows, I through the dangerous night
which never be seen in daytime, these or like such experiences always
hung magic and it's different from prepared entertainment.

そしてそれは、数こそ少なくなった物の、今でもひょっこりと夜中に出現
します。だから、夜遊びは止められない。
And although the experience were less than then, sometime knocked me
in midnight. So I can't stop nightlife!

LONDONのCLUBに行って、物凄い衝撃を受けた!!
I got a tremendous impact at London' night club!!!

なんて事は無く、はっきり言って日本と同じです。
I want to say such words, but it's same as Japan night club.

ただ、こっちはその気になったら少しだけ遊びやすい環境が在るのかも。
みなさんご存知の通り、ナイトバスが24時間やってるし(と言っても
3時4時に家に帰りたくなって乗っても、結局家着くの5時過ぎとかなん
よね〜)有名なアーティストもそこら中でやってます。
探せば何かしら在るという感じ。
あと、ビールデカイ!
そんな酒強くない自分としては2、3杯で十分です。
でもって、酔っぱらって来て音が良ければ気持ちよい訳なんですが、、
正直、ぐお〜っと込み上げる感じの夜にはまだ出会っておりません〜。
これから出会う予感はひしひしと感じてはいるのですが。。。
However, It's easy to have a fun nightlife, coz everybody know,
there are night buses(but if I feel to come back home by bus, always
get home passed 5AM...), famous artists act here and there, and
beer is bigger than japan!
so that, when I was tipsy and good music around there, of cause
I feel good, but I haven't seen the magic night...
Still, I have a feeling to meet that :)

とりあえず、こっちで行ったGOOD SPOTを紹介!
Anyway, there are many good spot about music, I introduce them!!!

Disco dub中心に緩いのから激しいのまで、今月はGESTに瀧見憲司さんが登場!
毎月場所を変えてのwarerhouse partyで、内容も素晴らしい!
24時くらいに着いたら、まだ客は3、4人。ありゃ?と思ったら1時過ぎに
わんさか集まり始める。たぶん、解りづらすぎ(笑)
こっちでは屋内は何処も禁煙なんだけど、ここではOK!
SoundはDIYだけど、元々TONKAというpartyで使っていたものを引っ張って
来たらしく、良い感じでした!瀧見さんのplayも良かったな〜!
これから、ちょくちょく遊びに行く事になりそうw
Around disco dub from loose to high, this month guest DJ was Takimi Kenji!
This is warehouse party and change place every month, so good party!
When I got to there at 0AM, there are only 3,4 people.I thought something
strange, but after 1AM, many freaks was coming with good vibes!
It might be so difficult to find the place.
Smoking inside of club is banned in London, but this warehouse party is OK!
Sound system is D.I.Y, but staff carried it from the famous party"TONKA",
so it's good sound & DJ was so good especially Takimi san!
I will go to this party very often!

◆Plastic people

TheoやBenji-Bが毎月やっている場所。前回のBenji-Bのパーティーは
Theo parrish, Peanut batter wolfがgestとかなり豪華面子だった模様。
あっさり、日にちを間違え行けず。違うパーティーに遊びに行ったが
程よい大きさで音も良い感じだった。来月は絶対Theo行こうっと♪
Theo, Benji-B have own party every month. last time Benji-B's
"DEVIATION" had great guest who are Theo parrish & Peanut batter wolf!
I made a mistake the date and couldn't join, oh my god!!!
The mistake day, I went to Plastic people, it's good place &
good sound! I wanna listen to Theo's DJ at there!!!
Come back again!!!!I hope!

◆T bar

Marshall jeffersonがやるとの情報を聞きつけ、はしごして行くも
終わった後だったw
こっちではメインアクトが早い。風営法の絡みも在って4時くらいに
しまる店が多いから大体24、25時くらいにやる場合が多いのかも。
Ben westbeech, DJ PIERREはなかなか良かった!
ここのSound systemはFunction oneだった。
I heard from someone Marshall jefferson was playing the night.
I went to T Bar after had drunk, but Marshall had finished when
I arrived. I think main act was earlier time than Japan.
coz, almost club are closed 3 or 4 AM by an entertainment-related.
Main act might be around 0 or 1 AM I think.
The day's other act I saw was Ben westbeech,DJ PIERRE.
Both good! This club's sound system was all Function one.

BrinxtonにあるRegee music中心のPub。Sound systemは恐らく自前
ながら、なかなかの迫力。なのにチャージフリーはありがたい!
Mango's hifiがやっていて良い感じだった。
外には、ジャークチキン屋と広めのガーデンがあってゆっくり出来る
よい場所だった。
この夜は1ta-rawとinumikakuと一緒にナイトクルージング♪
This place is a music pub mostly like live house in Brinxton.
It's a pub, so need not paying entrance charge.
Almost music is around Regee music. When I went, Mango's hifi
was playing music, it was good vibes!
Out side was wide garden for chill , there is food shop of
jerk chicken. good place!
I hung out with1ta-raw & inumikaku, we had fun the night!

About Brighton weekend

しばらく、blog更新してませんでしたが単なるサボリです(笑
I have not updated my blog recently, it's just laziness.

さてさて、書きたい事は実は山程あるんですが、
Well, there are many interesting things, but I write down 1 by 1!

まずは、ショートトリップの事から。。。
At first, about my shot trip...

幸運にもここロンドンには、友人を通して友達になるというパターンで
知り合った武蔵野美術大学や武蔵大学の元留学生が何人か居る。
その友達から更に友達を紹介されて、、、
と言う感じで、みんなで広げよう友達の輪なのだ!
Fortunately in London, there are some nice guys who came to
Musashino art University or MUsashi University as foreign student
introduced by my Japanese friends.
The guys introduce me to their friends, friend's friends are all
friends, so wold was fulled by my friends near future!

こないだは、simonと一緒に南の海沿いの街Brightonに行って来た。
A few weeks ago, I went to Brighton where is seaside town in
south side of Uk with siomon.

brigton
Brighton station

彼の親友のedeはフリーランスのイラストレイターでその街の教会の中で
展示会があったんで、日帰りのつもりで小一時間の電車旅行。
途中の田園地帯を抜けると、丘の上に立つbrightonの駅に到着。
駅を降りると、規模は小さいがキラリとセンスの光るお店が多かった。
何となく海が近い開放的な雰囲気もある。(天気良かったからかも)
丘が在って、街が在って、海がある。
きっと探せば景色の良い所が沢山あるんだろうな。。。良い街だ。
His close friend Ede is illustrator freelance, he has an Exhibition
at church in the town. He invite me & simon there, so I went to
short trip from London first time.
through the country side, there is the Brighton station on top of
hill. We get off, there are many small shop which has good original
sense and an open feel somehow close to sea!(It might from good
weather)
There is hill, town, sea...good place!
It might be so good location around top of hill!

Exhibitionは23時までで、仕事終わりのsimonと一緒だった為まずは会場へ。
坂を下った先に立派な教会があり、外には人だかり。
The Exhibition "Freak show" is until 23PM, we didn't have enough
time to see the sea, so at first go to the reception.
There is a good church down the hill ahead, the crowd outside.

そしてゴリラがお出迎え。
And a gorilla's welcome!

charch
中は大盛況!
Inside is a great success!

日本では、あまりこう言う場所に足を伸ばさなかったがビールがドネーション
(まあ、払うけど良心的)なのと、何人か友達が居た為、予想以上に楽しめた。
I didn't attend to such a reception, but it's good!!
Beer are free and I knew some friends,and good pictures.
that's enough reason to enjoy!

終わった後はアフターでpubへ行き、結局友達の輪に肖り寝床を確保。
しこたま飲んで、ビーチ沿いのクラブへ行くもエントランスチャージを
払いたくないと言う理由で家飲み。この晩に2人の酔っぱらいが財布を無くす。
(内一人は路上で発見、もうひとりはede)
At end, we went to some pub, Everyone said that there is friends
friend's house don't worry about my bed.
We got drunk, going to club in beach, but not enter coz it's not free.
after all 2 guys lost wallets.(one guy find out on street,another is Ede)

次の日はビーチまで行って、のんびり日光浴ながら酒を抜き帰る。
ちゃんと地元のレコ屋もチェックしましたよ(笑
Next day, I went to beach, take my time in sunshine & take off alcohol.
Off cause I checked records at that town's!

Mobile amusement park is coming to town

Londonに来てからチャリで移動したり、公園をジョギングしたりとヤケに
健康的な生活をしている。こないだはジムにいって泳いだ。
Ever since I came to London, I have healthy life. I moved by bicycle,
jog in park, also I went to gym to swim.


公道での交通ルールは日本と少し違うようで、未だに交差点のすべてが
赤信号になる意味が不明。とは言え、歩行者の殆どは信号を無視している。
Road traffic rules are slightly different in Japan, I don't understand
why every signal turn red in crossroad. but almost people ignore that.

移動中やジョギングしている時は友達のmixを聞きながらがベスト。
みんなドンドンWebにUPして下さいまし〜笑
When I'm having exercise, I always listen to my friend's DJ mix.
It's best way for having fun exercise.
My dear DJs! Let me get your mix on web♪ I need your good vibes!

今週はジョギングコースの公園に移動式遊園地が登場した。
Mobile amusement park is coming to my jogging park in this week.

設営は腕にタトゥーを入れたハードロックなおじさん達が手際よくやってました。
なんかこういうの良いな〜。Wild mouseだってさ〜笑、和む♨
Many macho men who has tattoo every each arms constructed the amusement park very smoothly.
They has smiles with their job. That's good ! very warming :)
and nice humor like this.

Centerの方へ行くと、East end film festivalという、movie fesに出くわし
商店街の一角で無料上映を楽しむ。
When I went to center city, there is movie fes"East end film festival".
so enjoying free movie at space of shopping street.

良いね良いね〜、和む♨
Good good ! nice event!

day3_1.jpg

一週間くらいやっているfesみたいで、新旧200本くらいの映画を上映している
との事。僕が見た時は、ヒッチコックの(The Lodger)という無声映画に生バンド
が入っていて二時間近く演奏しっ放し。
The fes was running on about 1week more or less, showing that about 200 old and new movie.
When I watched, they showed Hitchcock's silent movie"The Lodger" with live accompaniment.
It was playing from start of film to the end.

nosferatu.jpg

インプロっぽい感じだけど、場面ごとに曲調やタイミングがリンクしていて素晴
らしかったのですが、前に陣取ったお客さんが邪魔すぎて100%楽しめず。
まあ、無料上映だし文句も言えないっすね。
The band played like improvisation, but music matched each sine each timing!
It was so cool and excellent. Unfortunately audience interfere to watch that.
I couldn't have enjoy full, well it's free movie and movie fes, unavoidable...
but I could have good time♪

春が来たからなのか、各地でこういうイベントがある事はとても素晴らしい!
Whether from the spring has come, it is all over these events is great!
Nogh respect!!!
