The third album of Tokyo-based band The Watanabes hits Japanese record stores this autumn, but you can get your hands on a copy of the CD a little earlier if you join them for their launch party at What the Dickens. They'll be sharing the stage with fellow folk rockers The Kave and playing hits from their new album, 'Draw What You Like', and their two previous albums, 'Independent Social Power' and 'You're Dancing I'm Absorbed'. Their new record was produced by Glaswegian David Naughton and features a guest appearance by British indie godfather Nick Duffy of The Lilac Time. And even though they're enjoying attention beyond Japan (they've had some nationwide airplay in the UK), The Watanabes are still not charging anything for you to come and watch them play. 'Cause they're nice like that.
