“The only recording of the first group i formed with two friends. At that time we didn’t own any instruments. The only things we had was a synthesizer that we had borrowed from another friend. As a result, our first musical forays were played on that synth and some home-made percussion. We laid down the basic traks in the dark store room adjoining the science laboratory at our junior high school, under the light of a single red lightbulb. We used some of the beakers and instruments from the store room as our percussion, breaking several of them in the process. Needless to say, this episode got us into a heap of trouble later” – Makoto Kawabata
