May 20, 2021
On 20 May, 2021 Thursday, SHAG, the psychedelic jam band led by SUGIZO, will hold a live streaming concert titled LIVE STREAMING FROM TOKYO EPISODE Ⅲ ～THE SHAG STRIKES BACK.
The new born SHAG restarted in December 2020 for the first time in 12 years after reorganizing its members, and held four shows with audience over two days at BLUE NOTE TOKYO. The second stage of DAY2 was a hybrid of streaming and live performance, but this would be the first time for the concert to be specialized in streaming.
The band contains six members including SUGIZO. KenKen (Ba) who has been a member since the early SHAG and is now one of Japan’s leading bass heroes, Shinpei Ruike (Tp) who is one of best improvisers of the time and has been a session mate for
15 years and participated in SUGIZO LIVE STREAMING FROM TOKYO EPISODE II ~ VOICE OF LEMURIA held in April, Kazuhiro Bessho (Key) who is a man of talent from a former Yasei Collective and also performed as a guest player on SUGIZO’s original album ONENESS, a percussionist Kenji Yoshiura (Per) who is familiar with SUGIZO solo concerts and is most trusted by SUGIZO, and Yukino Matsuura (Dr) a highly skilled drummer at a new generation who co-starred for the first time at a last concert. In addition to playing guitar, violin, and modular synthesizer, SUGIZO plays many roles such as leading improvisation like a conductor with moves.
“In a society where division is deepening and discrimination is increasing ……, I still want to seek true freedom and human rights. Music supposed to be the means to do that, and it must have been Jazz, Rock and Funk too. I made SHAG revive in order to customize the attitude that was important at that time for the 2020s, and to evolve music more freely in the future.”(SUGIZO)
How has SHAG changed and made it deepen over the past five months? Please come see for yourself.
