A very sad news...
Wataru Okabe, the jolly drummer of our B-flower, passed away totally unexpectedly on 13 January. We are at a loss what to make of it still.
Last week, we were checking available dates for their Tokyo gig later this year. It was going to be supported by The Laundries. This was going to be a big event.
Not any more.
I'm not going to list everything they had planned for this year. But there were loads. Of course, this won't be the end of it all. But no doubt they will need some time to recover from the loss, and don't know how long that will take. Because they lost a good friend, not just a member of the band.
Okabe-san, thank you so much for being a part of a Sugarfrost band B-flower. You will remain on vinyl for ever.
