OK, I’m completely fugged after the Fuji Rock Festival. Fugged up, that is. Sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. Fuji was too much drugs, just about enough music and no sex at all. Everything in the wrong order. The usual insanity. So, I’m under a bush in the Niigata mountains, hold on, that’s just a flashback, man, and as you read this I’m in Nagoya to watch 54 Nude Honeys, Gasoline and Jet Boys rip the town apart.

Fuji Rock has ended, but the party continues. Fuji Rock was the lush first hit, so now we got an appetite for rockin’ in August and into September. I’m going to run through some of the best-looking events coming up and rate them in five vital categories: Music, Sex, Drugs, Cool and . . . Scars. So listen up, spread the word, and get wasted on an overdose of rock ‘n’ roll.
