    Same here johannez, I'm still really sour about that. I even had the time and was fully aware he was going to throw a gig there, I just couldn't be bothered in the end.

    Really wish I'd seen him live when he visited Stockholm, ugh. In Focus? is really great!

    Finally got a copy of In Focus. I swear that this man is absolutely incapable of making music that's anything short of delightful and triumphant.

    Just saw this guy + band in concert. Never really listened to him before but it was absolutely amazing. Judging from the responses of others afterwards they were just as enthralled as me. The drummer was an absolute beast, doing polyrhythms all over over the place. Another part of the trio consisted of this girl playing the accordion who had a box on a table in front of her with at least two dozens of different custom-made woodwinds/percussion/flutes/kazoos and stuff I've never seen nor heard before. And then the man himself Shugo, rocking one playful riff after another and making bad ass sounds with his mouth. Amidst of all this awesomeness they also did a cover of The Buggles' 'Video Killed the Radio Star' which Shugo tongue in cheek sung: "Video Killed the Lady-O star, video killed the Lady-O star". What a show. Definitely have to check this guy out after this performance. Best concert of Pop Revo 2013 (where names such as How to Dress well and Mount Eerie played as well). Thanks

    I like his sense of humor as well. That's why I've been to his concert over 3 times.. His talks always make me laugh out loud :)

    Honestly, I got no reason to be euphoric or anything but this guy just gets you in the mood instantly.

    Woops, I mentioned the wrong song! I don't remember the name of the first song I heard by him, but it was off of the "Port Entropy" album.
