If I remember correctly it was in 1999 in a studio in Los Angeles where I first heard this word as a contender for the album title. Thinking about how long it’s taken us to name other albums, I think that we named GAUZE at a very early stage.
I could not have imagined that seven years later I would be returning to Los Angeles to play live.
I wonder how long it’s been since I listened to this album from start to finish. Since I only listen to old songs when we decide we’re going to play them on tour.
So since we will do the GAUZE tour for the first time in fifteen years I listened to all of GAUZE. I’m going to write about what I thought, felt and remembered from listening to each song. If I wait until the next issue I will probably have completely forgotten. (laughs)
Die’s track by track analysis of GAUZE taken from his column in September’s haiiro no ginka issue. Very interesting read!
If someone could possibly explain why The Smashing Pumpkins and Obituary are in this list that wouldst be awesometh.
