buttonThe Parkinsons @ REST

in Obihiro, Hokkaido(25th Jan '03)-- Part1--


The Parkinsons
Travelling from Kitami to Obihiro, we saw a big trailer turned down in the field with a bit of snow on top. Well, we felt we really were in Hokkaido, the land of snow and ice, in winter.

Obihiro is well known for "Buta Don", pork on rice in bowl, for which we found the best restaurant was Pancho near the station. If you get any chance to get to this town, you should not miss this wicked meal.

But more than anything, we were glad to find this town is really rockin' through the support acts played before the Parkinsons get on stage.

Underground 13th fliow
Onion Bakudan
There were some bands played as a supporting act and the video crew was well impressed by the very first punk band, Underground 13th fliow, and the second one called Jay's, I hear. Well, I missed them though.

The lads of the Parkinsons were in love with Onion Bakudan, "Onion Bomb", all girls' band. In fact Al was asking them to come with them to tour in the UK.How serious Al was, but he did say, "This band is wicked!"

Another band, the tour manager got mad on was a unique ska outfit called Accel Tribe based in Asahikawa, the town the band was heading for the day after. I have seen them a couple of times before, but each time I see them, they sound quite different. This time they lost a trumpet, but still phat in horns and bringing rockin' jazz taste into their style of ska. I guess rooted into authentic ska, they are creating original style. Formed about 3 years ago, they still have not made any recordings, but we could not wait to hear what they do in studio.
