Album Notes
During the 2006 Japan Tour, Yukiko The Witch musicians, Franck and Bones, were woken at an early hour in the countryside of the Izu peninsula, by the sweetest sound made by man. Unlike the sledgehammer usual alarm clock bells, a soothing melody was played out loud to rice field villagers and bamboo woodland, not forgetting two lucky whimsical gaijin guests on their way to Paradise Café.
Unable to record or remember clearly every morning chyme, like one gradually forgets the face of lost loved ones, or most things before the age of three, these vague memories grew into songs for this record. An album one could have named "soul plaster" or "under the kotatsu", something to keep warm when apparently cold...

A kotatsu is a low, wooden table frame covered by a futon, or a heavy blanket upon which a table top sits. Underneath is a heat source, often built into the table itself.

Egg Timer: a small hourglass or clock device running about three to five minutes used to time the boiling of an egg.

One of the band's first shows in Japan was the Live Freak anniversary festival. A phoenix logo is stuck there to the back of the stage, and a golden egg was laid that night as they played. The Japanese egg timer then kept ticking, all the way to the Kyoto Kinkakuji (where the Golden Pavilion was not burnt to ashes again), to the Pacific Ocean (after tickling Fujisan's toes), and to various other places of interest, including a personal paradise in the Umejima area where one of the band members would usually take outdoor moonlit baths in spicy sento waters.
