Electronic Gaming Monthly September 1999

NARASAKI has a couple of photos promoting the Dreamcast in Electronic Gaming Monthly (September 1999)!
He was not credited.
Not exactly sure if the guy on the left is KANNO, but I don't think so...?

Special thanks to NarooN for letting us know about it.

In 2012, I asked NARASAKI if he remembered this photoshoot.
He replied, "Yeah! i was still young!"

4.3-4.2019 BIRTHDAY BASH CONCERT & AFTER TALK info dump

Hi, everyone! There is a lot of content that fans posted regarding the BIRTHDAY BASH concert and AFTER TALK. Since there's so much stuff, I'll write a brief summary and provide links.

Overall, it seemed like an epic concert and event. Everyone happily celebrated NARASAKI's birthday with a bang. 700 physical copies of SUBLIMATION were gifted to the concert attendees. HOT TOASTERS opened for COTD- they collaborated in SUBLIMATION and are under U-desper Records. Kemur Man (the alien from THE VISITORS FROM DEEPSPACE album art) made an appearance and waved a COTD flag. The first half of the concert was performed with Kenjiro Murai (bass) and Akira from Plastic Tree (guitar) while the second half was performed by the VISITORS TEAM (Negishi (guitar) & Nagasawa (bass)).

During an MC:
- When COTD performed in the US (Hollywood & New York) in 1993, their name was incorrectly presented as, "COALTER OF THE DEEPSPACE".

AFTER TALK

https://twitter.com/mamekitchen/status/1113807057730203649

NARASAKI performed COAL CUT on the ukulele (https://twitter.com/Wipe_Out_Retake/status/1113803283859009537). (I think) Signed drum pads were given away to fans who did not attend the concert. I also think there were rare video clips of the band. A lot was discussed during the AFTER TALK.

- COTD opened for Swervedriver (in Japan) in 1991. They went to London to try to be under the Creation Label but couldn't meet up with Alan McGee. (https://twitter.com/kittymaniameg/status/1113981419875782656)

- COTD performed in Los Angeles, CA in 1993 in part of the CMJ Music Marathon.
(https://twitter.com/kittymaniameg/status/1116192408650178561)

Kanno is quite the artist. I think only 2 were given out.
