    Decided to go through that YouTube channel myself. There's some nice stuff there.






    It's pretty easy to get lost in channels like this. I really have to pull myself away so I won't spend my entire day just watching half of the videos uploaded.
    Also, Missalina Rei was so good. Why did they have to stop so early on, goddamit.

    This may be old news, but I randomly came across a Twitter with some modern-day pictures of Misa (click the links)
    https://twitter.com/Chi3haya/status/770616959125692416
    Also, it seems like he's now the owner of the record company 株式会社フォーラム (as well as the famous store Like an Edison http://ktai.la-edison.com/pc/ )and if you search for that you can find more on what he's up to.

    I guess this was no secret if anyone read Kisaki's blog... but no one here is so gauche as to read that ::meev::

    I'm glad Misa's moved up in the world at any rate :)

    I think the Jee Jee Trap video has been on Youtube before, but this new release is the closest we're going to get to an original.
    I recommend downloading the 1998 live too, the video is much better quality than my old rip which is at least one VHS generation worse than that.

    Here's a curiosity (which I missed out on):
    https://www.mercari.com/jp/items/m95931077918
    A Klein Kaiser lot that includes a CD-R the seller got from one of the band members. Supposedly he was told it contains rearranged versions of "neo classical III" but the seller says he can't tell any difference ::meev::
    I wonder if it really was anything.

    In 2012 Yukiya (ex-JILS) had a session band with the guitarist of About Tess called Zazouz, and according to an interview with Yukiya, ピエトロ played drums at the show. They only did it once, and they did not announce him by name, but Yukiya talked about what a talented drummer he is. At this event, he went under the name EISHUU.

    Source - https://rooftop.cc/interview/170404140000.php?page=2 (He talks quite a bit about Da’vid使徒:aL in this interview)

    InterviewerWait, who was Pietoro?
    YukiyaHe was the vocalist of Da’vid使徒:aL, but before that, he was a drummer. He was super good at drums, but during Da’vid使徒:aL he switched to vocals. He did not do vocals for very long, and he pretty much only did vocals during Da’vid使徒:aL and pleur. After that he went back to drumming, though the stuff he played in was not really VKei. He was really good at the drums. He secretly performed at Shinjuku loft, actually. I was doing a solo unit and Takuto from about tess joined up with me and we ended up doing a unit called zazouz, and Pietoro was actually on the drums for that. We did not tell anyone who he actually was, though. And last year on 11/27 at Shinjuku ReNY at a Kreis 20th anniversary-type event, someone sang a song from their time with Ray, and Pietoro played drums own that too.

    Hiiii ! I literally just signed up to post in this thread XD I have nothing to contribute except that im so happy there are active da'vid fans still around.. I actually only found out about them really recently so i've been searching everywhere for more information and stumbled upon this thread yesterday! Funnily enough, i was a huge fan of @piepietoro's blog back in 2011 or so, but for the gyaru posts XD Thats so funny that i ended up in the same place again now but for a completely different reason.

    Anyways i just wanted to say hi and thank everyone for providing such good content ! ::zoom::::zoom::::zoom::

    If you're new to this whole thing I definitely suggest checking out Misa's later bands too, there are some genuine classics in his oeuvre.

    Fantastic find :D Thanks for preserving this lost music.

    It's a pity Pietoro (apparently) didn't keep at it. The wayang stuff was kind of a rough effort but it could have gone somewhere interesting.
