Tokyo book launch – been there, done that!

Well, we actually did go through it with the Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat book launch on 25th March and I’m still recovering – as we went right through from 6:00pm to 6:30am.

It was bloody brilliant, too.

Aside from the novel launch per se, we quite conveniently skipped out on any of the usual aftershocks that’ve been plaguing Japan lately, no-one glowed in the dark, and we screened The Maltese Falcon and The Third Man interspersed with anime gems like Tokyo Marble Chocolate and Mamoru Oshii’s Tachiguish-Retsuden; heck, we even showed The Karate Kid.

And the music – from DJ Wada, Ko Kimura, Jin Hiyama (pictured), Eri Makino, Cut Bit Motorz, Toshiyuki Yasuda, Devin Wine and Paul McQuade – was sublime.

More please… once I recover.
