賣花讚花香,教人討厭,未至於罪該萬死,也是禮義廉。不過,凡事總有破例的時候。

日本Math Rock樂隊toe再度重臨香港,作第五次演出。早前toe推出了最新的band tee,Songs & Books & Sentimentality & Tomorrow & Future & Hear,衫身上印滿了所曾推出唱片的簡稱,每一張唱片都有所不同,他們從不是愛自我重複的人,雖然曲風加入新元素,但不變的是那緊湊懾人的張力。

跳出唱盤,來到現場演出的舞台,toe的魅力依舊不變,甚至更為優勝。由2008年8月2日在中環的Grappa’s Cellar,到2010年10月20日在西灣河的Hang Out,以至2013年4月18日和2014年9月3日在九龍灣的Music Zone,toe每次來港演出,都令樂迷留下深刻、美好的印象。去年發表的第三張專集《Hear You》,是樂隊最清新可喜的一次,然而這並不代表他們的風格變得軟性,相反在流水行雲的曲調背後,仍是晶瑩剔透之餘,又不失紮實緊湊。

香港作為今次亞洲巡迴演出(菲律賓馬尼拉、馬來西亞吉隆坡、中國上海和北京)的最後一站,時光倒流到2008年,toe首度在海外演出,並且一鳴驚人,香港這城市對他們意義重大,也是他們總會把精力盡情發揮與發洩在此地的原因。

想不到好事成雙。

toe來了,而Hotel New Tokyo也一同來了。雖然今次皆非兩者的第一次到來,但第一次情意結不適用於所有事情。

由今谷忠弘領導的Jazz Rock樂隊Hotel New Tokyo,身處於Sunny Day Service主音歌手曾我部惠一所主理的Rose Records廠牌旗下,由《Gaudi melancholi》到《spring / summer》,《Tokyo Abstract Skater》和《Yes?》,憑優良技術和純熟合作,巧妙地將Jazz、AOR、Instrumental Rock、Post-Rock融為一體。他們上次來港演出,是應White Noise十周年紀念音樂會,那夜我們就像來到東京的Jazz Bar般,眼睛想旅行,耳朵亦然。

Hotel New Tokyo跟toe一向老友鬼鬼,今年日本Fuji Rock音樂節,Hotel New Tokyo找來toe結他手山嵜廣和與鼓手柏倉隆史同台演唱toe的名曲《Goodbye》,從YouTube重溫這一難得的合作,夜幕低垂伴上點點燭光,煥然一新的聽覺感受。

2016年12月3日,九龍灣E-Max的Music Zone,toe和Hotel New Tokyo兩隊樂隊舊地重遊,同樣的名字,同樣的舞台,不同是首次一起在香港同場演出,不知會否再唱一次《Goodbye》,但願他們明白好歌不妨一唱再唱的真理。

All they wanna do is see you and 《HEAR YOU》, let’s clap your hands and say《YES?》。

toe
toe is a Japanese music group. While mentioned in many post-rock circles, their song structure and dynamics are similar to many popular math rock artists.

toe is composed of Kashikura Takashi on drums, Mino Takaaki on guitar, Yamane Satoshi on bass guitar, and Yamazaki Hirokazu on guitar. Toe has formally played with this line-up since the band’s inception in 2000. They are currently one of three bands on the indie label Machu Picchu, along with the band mouse on the keys and Enemies.

The vast majority of the music is instrumental and features the swift and acute drumming of Takashi. The band is also known for its melodic, clean guitar settings. Additionally, the compositions have repetition from typical rock motifs, but use very subtle changes in beat and rhythm to form a unique sound. The band has changed their sound over their musical tenure by incorporating acoustic guitars, rhodes piano, and vibraphones in their most recent releases.

The band tours regularly in Japan, and can most notably be compared to acts such as Pele and The Album Leaf.

The beauty of their majestic music is that is sounds as if mystical harmonies and raw emotion is being churned out at the same time. Their explosive live performances have had fans across the globe spellbound. Their inspiring performance at FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL 2010 has recently been the most memorable.
In December 2009 they released their new album “For Long Tomorrow” and in July 2010 they released their second DVD “CUT_DVD”.
