I know many of you have already donated money and time to the sad situation in Japan. We would like to do our part and help raise more money for our brothers and sisters. I first went to Japan in 1997 to produce a band called POTSHOT. Since then, I’ve been back 12 times and Japan has always been a wonderful and welcoming place. I’ve met some of the most genuine people and have made life long friends that have and continue to impact my life tremendously. We have released albums from POTSHOT, NICOTINE, COQUETTISH, SOFTBALL, AKIAKANE, POLYSICS, and AHIRO. I’ve spoken to many of the bands from Japan and am happy to know everyone is safe and though the situation is disheartening, the common message is that their spirit and determination to overcome adversity is extremely strong. I really hope we can raise over $10,000 for the people in Japan.

After we compile all the donation money, I would like to put a vote to which organization we should donate the money to. I hope this finds you well and I have always appreciated the kindness that exudes from the asian man extended family of friends.
Let’s do what we can to help others always.
