Hail The El Pres!dente

Just got back from HMV in Shibuya where I saw Scottish band El Presidente play a live and free five/six song set culminating in their first hit ‘Without You‘ which has been played to death on local station Inter FM recently. While recently looking at the UK top 40 chart on-line I saw that this band scraped into the hit parade at number 40 with some other song which I don’t know.

I think they have been around since last summer but are only just getting started over here. It was quite a good set and included a cover of Prince’ ‘Raspberry Beret‘. Anyway, to get to the point (yes, there is actually one!!) after the set there was a sort of meet and greet with the band for people holding a ticket of some sort though I don’t know how they acquired it!. Given that the Japanese always bow to say thanks or whatever I thought it a little strange that they shake hands with the band. Reminds me of some Royal folk meeting two sporting teams prior to a major sporting occasion.
