To all our fans...

We, the Underneath, broke up at the final performance in Shibuya on May 3rd,

However our music will be keeping alive and we are always underneath the
same sky.

We really appreciate a lot of love and supporting you gave us.

Thank you so much.

TAKA   the Underneath

I'm starting to get nervous.

Please check out our goods which I designed.

The photo on the top page was changed new one!
but the one taken before I dyed my hair red.

Also, we've started the countdown to the gig on the top page,
but just 3 more days left......

MIX LEMONed JELLY 2008 feat. hide Birthday Party finished!

081213_mlj.jpgAlthough we've played at MLJ so many times (the first time as "the Underneath),

it was such a marvelous event this year too, included the after party.

Don't you think it's wonderful that everyone joined together?

We played the same 4 songs as at hide memorial summit for this event.


I really enjoyed.

The next show is on the 27th. It's our final show in 2008.

Get together at SHINJUKU LOFT!

Thank you!

Our Gig Week has been finished!

Thank you so much for coming to see us!

We'll be back to "the underground".

We're making lots of new songs now.

I'm looking forward to the next one-man gig.

Also we'll play at CITTA' before it.

See you next month!


081112_toc.jpgI went to Shinkiba Studio Coast to see the final day of Taste of Chaos 2008.
Every band was so cool.

There are lots of things to remember, but too many, so I couldn't write them.
Welcome Back, MUCC!

I met up again with a stage manager who was so good to us during the US tour.
We were so glad to see again, but I couldn't understand English,
so I was so sorry it was difficult for us to talk. I must study English harder.

It's a gig today.
Get crazy, everyone! especially in front of me!

"ABSTINENCE'S DOOR #003 #004" finished!

Sorry for not writing sooner, D'ERLANGER presents "ABSTINENCE'S DOOR #003 #004" finished!

We played just 4 songs in Osaka, but I think we all could do a spirited show.

D'ERLANGER must be one of the bands which influenced me in the early period of my music career.
When they got back together in 2007, I went to see their gig in Hibiya Yaon,
but when it was decided that we could play with them, I was so pleased.
I could spend the time with them and learn lots of things and reset myself.
Moreover, it's a great honor to cover my favorite song, "LA VIE EN ROSE"
And the members of D'ERLANGER were so friendly to us, so I feel grateful to them!

If we have the chance, I hope to play with them again.

We could feel as if it was a short tour in Hakata and Osaka, so It was such amazing 3days for us.
Thank you for coming to see us!

Next gig will be on 13th.
Come together to Yokohama BAYSIS!


081108_logos1.jpgThis is Logos.

We came here for the first time in many years,
but I don't have a feeling.

We got to Hakata last night and went out for a drink with D'ERLANGER.
We had a great time with them, so we can play a good gig today.

Our show is in several hours.
I can't wait!

"NEVER MIND 10th Anniversary Vol.3" has been finished!

JISYUBAN CLUB celebrated its 10th anniversary like BEAT SHUFFLE. In addition, MC was also Mr. Noboru Yamamoto and his funny talk hasn't changed.

Thank you so much, the staff and the artists!
It's been a long from 11am when we got to the venue to 9pm when we were on...
but we played as a final act and the show was so exciting.
Thank you, the audience!

Today MIYA from MUCC who has just come back from Taste of Chaos International
came to see us and talked about the tour.
I was relieved that his tention hadn't changed. haha

Tomorrow we're going to Fukuoka. It's been a while since we went there.
but by car......

It'll take much longer to Fukuoka than today's waiting time.
We can go to USA by airplane, can't we?

However, we may be get excited in the car from beginning to end,
so we'll quickly get there.
See you later.


081106_west1.jpgWe have to wait longer when it's not one-man gig,
so I brought my PC and did some recordings in the dressing room today.

I had taken a photo with RYU-chan from DOREMIDAN.
In fact, we've known each other for a long time.
From now, DOREMIDAN's stage's gonna start!
