Just over a month ago, Starwave Records, who boast the likes of BLOOD, Suicide Ali, Calmando Qual, and Misaruka among their ranks, celebrated the label’s fourth anniversary with a live at Ikebukuro EDGE.
Now, for fans who want a memento of that night or ones who missed it altogether, Starwave Records has released a live digest in extremely limited quantities, available only at shows or through the Darkest Labyrinth/Starwave Records web shop.
The live digest, Starwave Fest Vol.8, officially dropped April 17th, a mere month after the March 16th final of Starwave Records’ anniversary tour – talk about a quick production! The DVD features nine live video tracks, one from each performer on the lineup that night: lix, Magistina Saga, THE SOUND BEE HD, Capella, Calmando Qual, Syokudaikakkokai, Misaruka, Synk;yet, and Tokami. To give audiences a taste of what to expect from this soon-to-be sought-after release, Starwave Records has uploaded the above sample of the DVD to YouTube.
The total length of the DVD is a mere 45 minutes, and it does not chronicle the entire performance from March 16th, but as far as DVDs go, it’s quite affordable – ¥3000 yen after tax, which is less than most 45-minute audio albums. Whether you’re a fan of Starwave artists, or you’re just looking for a taste of what the lineup has to offer, this DVD should be on your wish list! But you better hurry, this release is strictly limited to a mere 300 copies.
