Keikaku Interview 2005
Where is noodles from?
How did noodles form?
We formed the band as friends in 1991.
How were you introduced to music?
We started playing instruments once we formed the band.
When or how did you learn to play music or instruments?
When I was a kid I listened to The Carpenters and
other oldies, and from there I got into music.
Were any of you in bands before noodles?
Who were your rock n roll heros growing up, Japanese
and or Western?
From oldies to The Pixies, there've been a lot.
Besides Yoko's Mustang and Ikuno's 4001 Rick what
other guitars or equipment do you like or use?
Pedals, amplifiers, anything, there's a few of us
here that are real gearheads.
We use a Fender Twin Reverb as a guitar amp and Tama
drums. The bass amp is acoustic. Currently, I'm not
using a Mustang, but a new Fender Cyclone.
Will Junko be replaced?
No, we're going to remain a trio.
Now that you are a three piece band, what kind of
adjustments will you be making?
We have one less guitar, but other than that nothing's
really going to change.
Sometimes you write and sing in english, why is that?
When we want to stress something in our sound, we sing
Is being a noodle a full-time job, or do the band
members have other occupations?
What can be expected from noodles in the future?
We will continue to make good music.
Is it just me or does Ayumi remind you of Ringo?
Well, I don't hate Ringo...
