The video…

A small bit from Jonathan Ross’ great series: Japanarama!…

The video is a CD extra on the disc…and I do believe it has become my new favorite video…of all time!! Worth it for the cover art alone, the music actually works pretty well and is great fun to hear. Nice bonus with the Booska tunes too! If there is something you’d really like to hear…leave a message and I’ll try to post it. Aloha!
