A big salute to Detroit Jack for the past 15 years or so he's been living in Japan! Back in 2007, he launched Future Now Records as a vehicle to bridge music scenes between two of the world's greatest Rock Cities with a tribute to THE DOGS! He released a double album with a slew of Japanese bands paying homage to the original punk rock band that first screamed out "Slash Your Face!" He followed up with a double DVD collection of new and old rare live footage of THE DOGS gigging in LA and Tokyo. Since then, Jack has decided to move... rather ride on into the sunset seeking serenity in the world's ancient site with his newly founded Bike Classical cycling group. Ride on, brother!
That's not to say Detroit Jack won't be leaving without any fanfare! Future Now Recordds is bringing THE DOGS back to Japan for four incredible nites of ROCK fantasy! Hit Fifi's bar Poor Cow in Shimo-kitazwa on Friday, April 8th for a special acoustic show and record signing. Get electric, or eleki maybe, on Sat.
