Terayama was fascinated by the idea that fortune telling is a creation of improvised drama, and the Tarot deck is the best devise for that purpose. Following the complex procedure and spread invented by him the fortune-teller and the clients are going to experience a kind of roll-playing game for the period of one week.
Susuki Nanami was Terayama’s protege at that time. Young, talented, beautiful artist just graduating from Art School. She illustrated many of Terayama books in 1970s. It seems she had drawn the deck by the summer of 1973. Terayama/Susuki Tarot was published in 1974 as limited edition of 50 decks.
The Clash helps some of their fans to sneak in before a concert.
this is how you do music right.
I love this so much. Like how stoked would you be if a band you loved helped you sneak into a big show of theirs?
I’ve heard this story before and love that they did this. Stop me if you heard this other one: The Ramones were playing in England and before the show they were hanging out in the dressing room when someone tossed a stone at the window. They looked out to see some young punks who wanted to get into the show but didn’t have money for tickets. The Ramones reached down and pulled the guys up and got them in. Those young punks without tickets were to become The Clash. Good to hear they kept it going.
Reblogging for awesome bands with awesome stories.
The last remaining astronaut watched helplessly as his comrades left the ship one by one and were carried away. He told himself that he would not succumb the way his shipmates had; he knew he would struggle. But the creatures, if they could even be called that, somehow seemed to know him, and when his turn came and the singing of the cosmos reached a crescendo in his ears, his mind emptied of all but the desire to join them in the void. Gazing into the creature’s face, he mused on how tender, how gentle its embrace seemed to be, and even as his oxygen supply dwindled he did not resist.
