Lucky Boys, 2020
Silent Army Records
Lucky Boys is a collaborative music project with my good friend Hiroyasu Tsuri. Hiro and I have been friends for a long time, but we started recording our music/play sessions in 2013. Hiro and I have painted a lot together but at some stage we turned to playing music together as a way of playing and hanging/zoning out. We are both equally matched by our novice level and enthusiasm.
We’re lucky to have a strong friendship that is strengthened by a commitment to play and make things together. I’m very lucky to have a friend like Hiro and we live a very fortunate life – we are very LuckyBoys. I hope that when people look and listen to this project that they think about friendship and freedoms and make some music for yourself.
This 7” self titled vinyl is the first set of recordings from a bigger set collected between 2013-2020 in a few various spots in Melbourne and Berlin. We’re looking forward to sharing more in the future. The bright blue vinyl includes a 16 page booklet of penpal collaborations between Hiro and I peppered with new and old collections of our team ups. The first 20 copies include some weird original sketches from Hiro and I.
