Hi! Happy new year!! Being busy and the lack of news about Yoeko made me take long to update the website again :(
|SasaNishiKa's debut album "※".|
A few weeks ago some rumours spread online on discussion boards like 2ch forums and mixi.jp communities about a voice very similar to Kurahashi's being featured in some tracks of the recently debuted band SasaNishiKa
The tracks are included in their debut album "※" (reference mark), which was released the past December 20th.
The record's liner notes lists Shinjiro Yamato and machi as guest vocals.
Shinjiro Yamato is a Gunma prefecture born vocalist from The Funderfuls band. As for machi, there isn't any kind of information anywhere!
I, myself, asked the band's staff for more information about her and they said they are not able to give out details on artists not attached to their record label… :(
Previews for the tracks "machi" is featured can be heard below. ;)
Could "machi" be a new Yoeko Kurahashi's pseudonym? :3
Is she coming back from retirement?
SasaNishiKa's line-up consists of former Gymnopedie (a japanese jazz band, 2001-2008) members: Ayako Kawasaki (drums), Saori Sasazawa (piano) and Hiroki Nishi (guitar).

Lyrics - koi no airport
オヒサシブリ！Thank you for all the visits on Yoeko Live DB! It's now up for 2 months, please keep adding info up :)
A new link called "セトリ不明" (unknown setlist) was added for easier reference on which pages need further contribution. Please have it a check.
Now back to updates! I have added lyrics to "KOI NO AIRPORT". According to "KAIZOKU PIANO" booklet, this was the first version of "KOI NO DAISOUSA", the track included in this album had the vocals taken from some early recording and mixed with the arrangement of the version present on "MODERN GIRL" album.
koi no koi no koi no koi no eapoooooooto!~♬

After almost 2 months of gathering information, designing and trying to figure out how a database works, I can finally announce a Yoeko Kurahashi live database will be open for everyone to check on April 30th.
It will be a wiki-based website with information of almost all the concerts Yoeko has been to, with details about setlist, live house and artists she shared the stage with. All the information was taken from blogs and forums around besides the usual support from Mr.Nyamco and Mr.Konohamoero.
It's a free database that anyone will be able to edit and add information.
I picked April 30th so that it's the 4th anniversary of Yoeko's public announcement of retirement...
I hope you enjoy it :)

Perfect Oil CM
Hi! Media sections was finally updated with links for TV-ads from Kao's Bioré Perfect Oil aired during 2006 with narration provided by Yoeko Kurahashi! Two different versions were shot, one with Akiko Kikuchi in the main role, and the other with Rena Takeshita. The songs are slightly different, there's a version for Mascara and Concealer. These ads were very popular in Japan back then, and many people wondered whose the singing voice was. Actually, this was the second nation-wide CM Yoeko sang for. The first one was for cough drops from Nanten Nodoame, featuring Emi Hashino.... but I never got the chance to watch/listen to it :(

Translation - tsubutsubu
butsubutsu! It is time for another new translation. I personally like these lyrics very much. They are very simple, yet very freaky!! Also, this is the first one coming from album 'MODERN GIRL'. Mr. Julian gave me a good help on this, thank you!
