Lately I've been thinking a lot about Japanese psych-rock goddesses Angel'in Heavy Syrup. I first crossed paths with them nearly 20 years ago, back in Honolulu, Hawaii. Shit. It seems like just yesterday but, 20 years is nearly a lifetime...and that's twice as old as Justin Beiber.
My friends Guy (Funk Pistol) and Stacey (Fine) brought them to Honolulu to play some shows at their very 'underground' and very 'after hours' nightclub 'My Favorite Eggplant'. The ladies spoke little-to-no English and my Japanese is juvenile, at best. That didn't stop us from having way too much fun.
