I was in Japan (Nagoya: Bar Ripple, Kyoto: Bar Ooh La La and Tokyo: Bar Heavy Sick) between March 3rd and March 13th, playing a handful of gigs with the band The Shapes that I was in between 1977 and 1980, and again live in 2008, 2014 and 2016. I took TOXIC orange and black livery with me (in order to be consistent with my TOXIC manifesto) in the form of my stage outfit. Oishi!
