Desperation is the raw material of drastic change.

Only those who can leave behind everything

they have ever believed in can hope to escape.

"Looking For A Kiss" - The New York Dolls (demo, 1973)

When The New York Dolls signed their record deal in 1973, they got into the studio and recorded their entire repertoire in one-take demo cuts, in order to decide which songs to choose for their debut album. This original raw and clear studio recording (here from the compilation "A Hard Night`s Day", released in 2000), untouched by the hands of producers and even including chatter amongst the band members between the songs, captures the sound of The Dolls as it was meant to be heard: trashy, sloppy and sweaty rock`n`roll, as if it was taped in a crowded nightclub…

"…Everybody in tune? Are all you lovely young gentlemen in tune? You angels, you wonders of the universe?

When I say I’m in love, you best believe
I’m in love, L-U-V…”

Inudo-director talks about Aiba-chan ^^

Inudo-director said, during Kiiroi Namida even though he didn’t know how Aiba-chan acted like, he would like to join forces with him in another feature to evaluate his acting ability. When Inudo heard that Aiba-chan was going to act in Debikuro-kun as the main character, Hikaru, he rejoiced because Hikaru reminded him of Aiba-chan. The character suited Aiba-chan’s real personality, so he could rely on Aiba-chan to do a good job. Inudo mentioned actors like Aiba-chan are very valuable. He would love to work with Aiba-chan again in another feature after Debikuro-kun to see what else he could do, something out of the usual character Aiba-chan does in dramas & movies :) Something to make people go “Oh, you can act like this as well!”. He’s okay even if he is not directing, he just want Aiba-chan to take up offers with any features that are given to him, in any role.  - Cinema Cinema vol.66 (Wow, Inudo-director gave really high praises for Aiba-chan ^^)
