This track 'BORDERITA' is dedicated to those who fell victim to the Fukoshima-disaster 2011, it's a positive party-tool of a track to keep everyone motivated for donations and help worldwide. I've started working on this track at the LAX-airport of Los Angeles 4 months before my first visit to Japan when i did two live-shows in Tokyo & Osaka, a month later the earthquake occured. Soon after i felt the need to contribute and i chose this track to complete because it has no connection to the situation at all and i hope it distracts from drama. It's all about drinking and dancing... so i'd like to raise the glass, tell y'all 'kampai' and wish you strenght, good fortune and all the best.

この 'BORDERITA'を東日本大震災で被災された方々に捧げます。世界規模での寄付と支援をうながすものになれば、という思いを込めた、明るいパーティーチューンで、僕はこの曲を、ロスの国際空港(LAX)にて作り始めました。僕が初めて日本を訪れることになる東京/大阪でのライブの4ヶ月前のことです。そしてその来日が済んでひと月後、あの地震が起きたのです。

i'm happy to be able to participate in this album for earthquake relief, and also for a chance to collaborate with my friend baiyon!

This earthquake has brought upon us not only the catastrophic damages derived from tsunamis but also many other problems that we Japanese have never experienced such as the one in the Fukushima nuclear power plants, and people in the disaster area are still suffering a lot.
The range of those problems is becoming more and more diverse as time goes by and I feel overwhelmed just to imagine the whole picture of the aftermath.

I truly wish this relief support project would be of some help to the people in the disaster area.

the future is hand made: I'm quite close to Japan. The first time i came was in 1995.. Already 16 years have passed, wow!
i have loads of good memories tho, spending time in such many different places either for professional matters or private ones. I confess, this is the country of my lover
who was born in Fukushima !
I offered “Pistol Star” track to my friend Baiyon I met in Kyoto. Pistol star is one of the brighter known stars of the Milky way Galaxy, "Galaxy that contains our Solar
System" so hopefully he ll be able to bring hope, and help to the victims of this terrible Eathquake.

このたび、僕は "Pistol Star"という曲でこのプロジェクトに参加しました。"Pistol Star"とは、僕らの太陽系を含む銀河系のなかでもっとも明るく輝く星のひとつです。僕がこのタイトルこめた願い。どうか "Pistol Star" のように、明るく輝き、希望をもたらすものでありたい、そしてそれがこの大地震の被災者の方々の光になりますように。
