Merry Christmas From Amiyumidas

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

Here is a cool video of the RGW light display in Tokyo Dome City from a different perspective, beneath the dome.

As my Christmas plans have gotten messed up I may follow the Japanese tradition and get KFC this year. :)

Contributor for Puffy David Myhr has a solo effort “Soundshine” that was released yesterday in Japan and for this Japanese version has two bonus tracks featuring Puffy songs and more importantly Puffy themselves. I guess the question is as he is the original co-writer of the music are these covers or are they out of sequence originals? Ami and Yumi are providing backing vocals for the songs, which makes a notable bit of Puffy side news into something a little more special.

Boom Boom Beat is the first bonus song Myhr has on the Japan release of "Soundshine," which he co-wrote the music with Anders Hellgren. The preview is from the recording session so there might be some changes in the final version after it goes through post production. I like it, though on this first blush it is definitely a touch more raw and unpolished. Neither are bad things and I generally like covers (for lack of a better word) that are not musically xeroxed.

Record Collection is a version of Happy Birthday, which Myhr co-wrote the music with Peter Kvint. I have no information about this song beyond this. If there is more information, please send it my way.... but I will begin digging.

P.S. Most of the information contained here in is from David Myhr's website, go read the whole thing it is a great read.

P.S.S. As a note, Myhr has ties to Andy Sturmer which as all of you know is a long time contributor for Puffy.

P.S.S.S. Soundshine is available at cdjapan, though much as the completest in me wants these two tracks… For now, I will probably have to control myself.
