It's only been brought to my attention recently: Kahimi Karie finally has an official website online, and with an english section no less! Sadly, no audio clips for me to convince people that this is a good thing. But the site is nice.
On a partially related note (i.e.: things that only i get excited about), Maki Nomiya(ex-Pizzicato Five) will be publishing a new album this october and among the many guest stars will be none other than Wolfgang Flür(ex-Kraftwerk)! I have reason to believe that this is the much-rumoured about unreleased collaboration from 2000 which Flür mentions in the conclusion to his autobiography, Ich War Ein Roboter. Now how's that for useless trivia?
