The Doolittle Tokyo Raiders was a group eighty men from all walks of life who flew into history on April 18, 1942. They were all volunteers and this was a very dangerous mission. Sixteen B-25 bombers took off from the deck of the USS Hornet, led by (then Col.) Jimmy Doolittle. They were to fly over Japan, drop their bombs and fly on to land in a part of China that was still free. Of course, things do not always go as planned.
The months following the attack on Pearl Harbor were the darkest of the war, as Imperial Japanese forces rapidly extended their reach across the Pacific. Our military was caught off guard, forced to retreat, and losing many men in the fall of the Philippines, leading to the infamous Bataan Death March.
By spring, 1942, America needed a severe morale boost. The raid on Tokyo on April 18, 1942, certainly provided that – cheering the American military and public. Yet, the Doolittle Raid meant so much more, proving to the Japanese high command that their home islands were not invulnerable to American attacks and causing them to shift vital resources to their defense. Two months later that decision would play a role in the outcome of the Battle of Midway, the American victory that would begin to turn the tide in the Pacific War.

I have enjoyed all of Tokyo Rosenthal's previous albums, and the new one Tokyo's Fifth is no exeption. Many singer/songwriters just basically run out of steam, they have nothing new to say, and merely recycle old concepts. Not so for Tokyo, he just continues to create music that garners him an ever increasing fan base.
Much like his songs, he always has a story to tell. I can't wait to hear the stories behind Tokyo's Fifth.

We're sending out a happy 10th anniversary to our friends at Last Gang Entertainment, the label/management company/publishing firm founded by Chris Taylor that's largely responsible for launching the careers of acts like Metric, Mother Mother, Chromeo, Crystal Castles, and many more. We'll speak with Chris about the company's first decade in the business, the day-to-day operations of a label in this day and age, and a whole lot more.
We'll also be catching up with the fellas in Tokyo Police Club, who are about to drop Forcefield, the follow-up to 2010's Champ and third studio LP. We'll find out what the band's been up to over those four years, see what's on the horizon, and of course, get the scoop on what fans can expect from this anticipated new release. Let's roll...
