My Love:Takako Minekawa
Artist: Takako Minekawa
Album: Chat Chat
Appears On (Mixes): Jeff Bridges... I Don't Need No Jeff Bridges To Put Music To My Poem!
Song Notes: This is from Takako Minekawa's first album Chat Chat, which is unfortunately unavailable in the US. This album is interesting, though—she was an actress who recorded a demo by herself, and submitted it to Polystar who ended up buying it and releasing it with some bonus tracks. Her later albums were released over here on Emperor Norton records. Unfortunately, she's been really quiet since her 2002 EP Maxi-On. Rumors say that she had a baby and wanted to spend time taking care of it, however the Polystar news page has a new entry for April 8, 2004… but it's unfortunately in Japanese, so I can't tell if it means there's a new record coming or what. - Rev.
