Tomokawa ought to be placed on each web-page, each zine cover, each wall/fence the eye could meet. He ought to cry out of every smallest and ripping cellphone speaker. The more people will listen him, the more world will be closer to some kind of abstract self-comprehension. He is the one of most influential artists in contemporary Japan. Maybe you wouldn't feel it from the first chord, but hush and listen carefully — when he sings, the very meaning of the word "influence" pales into insignificance. He deals not with such miserable matters. He's huge and lives somewhere outside and works with the essence of the whole world's emotional balance. Silence!
This is outtakes additions to the Vincent Moon's film La Faute des Fleurs (parts of his Take Away Show #98 were already posted here). This movie about Kazuki Tomokawa will be released in 2010 and "will make you discover the multiple layers of his existence and belief in life, his past as an actor for Oshima or Miike, his passion for bike race gambling, his unstoppable addiction to alcohol, his amazing skills as a painter, and his troubled past with his son, you soon got the feeling there's only one Tomokawa Kazuki. As there was only one Rimbaud."
