A first-hand journal of The Reducers' Japan Tour 2004.

The Reducers at the El 'N Gee Club, New London, CT

Greeting from Tom

Posted by Tom

It's almost a week into the trip (well I guess we lost a day with travel) with a hectic beginning. I'm starting to settle into our new home and looking forward to a new adventure in Tokyo.

The food is an adventure. We've been pointing at pictures on menus to choose our food, but you must be careful - the pictures don't tell the whole story, but so far so good.

The audiences have been great at both gigs. Very enthusiastic, but most times they get real quiet while they anticipating the next song. Then when the song starts they're shouting and singing the choruses. It's quite exciting.

The two gigs were world-beaters
The Reducers-freaks were cheer leaders
And What's...what's more
The Reducers were ten-striker
Oh-key-knee, Kampai!!

Has the Japaneese walmart started selling ken/barbie like dolls from the reducers? If you pushed a button on the palm of their hands they would reside Punk Rock Kings. Im sure they would sell!!!! The dutch may also be interested!!!
