    I don't have Facebook so I can't actually see most of what's there, but I'm curious if he's got any old pictures of Hisui, ISOLA, or Rudolf Steiner. There's a decent chance he ran into them at the kind of lives he went to.

    I'm pretty sure I didn't see any information about Isola or Rudolf Steiner lives... (I have no idea what Hisui looks like either)

    His facebook page is quite interesting, he posts tons of information about forgotten vk bands.

    You know you can edit your posts rather than multi-posting, right? XD
    Says the item is out of stock anyway, so you're probably out of luck.

    I'll start doing that, sorry.

    They have a policy of not selling rips, so that's pretty much the end of it !

    I asked him about Rudolf Steiner/Schwarz Stein when he announced he'd start selling part of his collection, and it seems as if a signed New Vogue Children was the only item he has (or is willing to sell)

    Don't worry - they're not new. They've been around for a decade or so. It's Reina in the white corset thingy

    Well yeah, obviously none of his pictures are going to be new XD
    I just never got to go through his entire archives while they were still up.

    The VHS allegedly containing footage of Dada and Ao from Caligari is on sale on puresound as well. It's really expensive for 30 minutes of potential interesting footage.

    https://puresound.co.jp/user_data/s...user_data/sp_artist_product.php?aid=omnibusma

    Longer preview but no Dada.. Also no idea from what era of VE this originates..


    Also I have a question, does anyone know where the Doomed Love live originates ? I've heard several theories but nothing that was really conclusive.

    Thank you for sharing that information ! I was quite curious about what it might contain. Does he have that pink wig ? Haha

    yes, if I remember he shared a photo in which he has the same outfit. (Probably from the event?)

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the MONONOKE UNIT event? I'm assuming from the kana title of the video link. I never knew there was any actual footage of it, though people have wondered for years.

    I always thought that pink wig was the same one he wore for his 捨て猫 outfit (the one he performed live in).

    Do you mean what live is this from, or who uploaded the video and how did they get it? Because I'm fairly certain this is a video of the Ikebukuro CYBER Live (3.3.1999), I seem to recall the audio files I have for that live matching up perfectly to the (horrible) audio in the video. Though the audio file is slightly better quality than in the video.

    I'm pretty sure that the source is the question here. I've wondered it myself, but no one seems to know. My guess is that it comes from one of those VHS tapes with random bands.

    I think so as well. I tend to agree on it coming from a random VHS tape, given that it was recorded from multiple camera angles, so it's unlikely it was recorded by an audience member. :)

    Maybe the audio we have from the live comes from a better copy of the video ? Just a guess. I haven't listened to the live in a long time.
