Mid term corporate report from the Japanese market

30 copies of the "TBM" seven inch single were lovingly carried out to the far east from their Krommenie homebase. Last night Dino played a sold out show (1700 people) in Tokyo at the Shibuya Ax. I put the singles up for sale at the merch desk with a description of the music, which our Japanese hosts kindly translated into Japanese and pinned next to the goods on offer.

At the end of the night, our translator came into our backstage room and without any warning held up a wad of cash for me and announced that all our singles had sold out! In one night! In Tokyo!!!! 30 lucky Japanese kids are now the proud owners of a cracking slab of vinyl. Why oh why did I not bring anymore out here?! The sales at this one show have smashed all previous records....and we didn't even play!!! We could be HUGE out here!!!!

Lets hope none of them bring them back tonight expecting their money back at the second night of the 2 dates here in Tokyo.
