Things didn't work out for Mass of the Fermenting Dregs. The dazzlingly confident girl rock trio that so impressed punters at 2007's Fuji Rock Festival was soon whittled down to two core members, with drummer Reiko Gotoh leaving just as the group were poised for crossover success. One major label album later, guitarist Chiemi Ishimoto also pulled out due to a panic disorder, and now even replacement drummer Tsutomu Yoshino is calling it quits. Gutsy bassist/singer Natsuko Miyamoto may well choose to carry on alone, though judging by her increasingly tone-deaf vocals at recent shows, she might do well to give herself a good rest first. This will be the last gig that Yoshino plays with the MOTFD, with support from up-and-coming girl band Akai Ko-en and indie rockers The Salovers.
