It was an offer from the promoter of Festival MIMI, which took place in Provence in July 1987. His name was Ferdinand Richard, and he was interested in inviting After Dinner to the festival and organizing a European tour. He liked our 1984 UK debut album on Recommended Records very much. This was like walking on air for people in their mid-twenties who had never gone abroad and were dreaming of an adventure in a fantasy land. The group of six players, two sound engineers, and a slide operator toured Nijmegen, Amsterdam, London, Zurich, and St. Rémy. We were surprised and happy at once about how much excellent feedback and warm clapping and cheering our concerts received from the audience and reviewers. For our eyes on the first tour, every scene in Europe was splendid like a picture postcard with a feeling of déjà vu. For our concert. the 4-channel surround PA speakers were set up at each venue. The sound engineer, Yasushi Utsunomiya, brought an eight-channel reel-to-reel tape player from Japan. Every performer monitored the sound of the ensemble and the backing tracks on the tape with headphones. Our playing included the concept of “ma” (space) influenced by traditional Japanese music, experimental pop rock, and musique concrete. All the concerts were recorded on a cassette Walkman with a pair of stereo microphones. After the tour. I listened to all of the material from our concerts and field-recordings of environmental sounds such as church bells, street organs, birds singing, and barking dogs beyond the outdoor stage at Festival MIMI. I copied those from cassette to reel-to-reel tape, spliced it by hand and edited an entire album. My old memories flooded back for the first time after I listened to Bob Drake’s remaster. And I realized how precious this live cassette was as a historical document of After Dinner’s career. I am eternally grateful to the labels, Fish Prints (US) and ReR Megacorp (UK) for the reissue, all the members of the 1987 tour, and everyone who supported our concerts at that time. —Haco, July 2019 ☁ Reviews (excerpts) / レビュー (抜粋) ”The result is a recording that exceeding difficult to categorize, a situation Haco/After Dinner’s music is no stranger to. Existing somewhere amidst enka, the quirky, off-kilter pop of Kate Bush, and the aforementioned field recordings, 32 years later and it’s still difficult to say that we’ve heard anything quite like Souvenir Cassette before or after its initial release.” ーTravis Shosa (Counterzine, USA - August 2019) http://bit.ly/2QnDMvf “Only taking a half-decade off between 1981 and right now, Haco has been a pioneering force of outsider "pop", psychedelic rock, ambient*, and electro-acoustic experimentalism, not just in Japan, but worldwide.” —Jacob An Kittenplan (Casstte Gods, USA - August 2019) http://bit.ly/2Qr5iIm
