With Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, Rosso, Midnight Bankrobbers,
The Birthday - Yusuke Chiba has always been standing in the front
line of Japanese music scene since the debut.
Half of the 125 songs selected by the artist himself - from World's
End to Olive- are appeared with newly written commentaries which
trail the atmosphere of the times.
Including hand-written words and drawings transcribed from his
sketchbooks, as well as short stories and prose which is, or to
be, the base of his lyrics, "BEAT" has, beyond the category
of anthology, completed as a spirited book revealing the unrivalled
artist's overwhelming world.
