ASAKUSA JINTA, they came, they played and didn't get told to stop!


Outrageous Japanese band honoured the Lomography Gallery Store London with an improvised gig outside the store!

When the van pulled up and i realised how much music equipment was going to be set up on our little street i got nervous. The set up however added to the tension that built up on Newburgh Street while ASAKUSA JINTA were preparing for yet another improvised street gig. All the local shop keepers peaked out to look, the neighbourhood security guys got suspicious and the street cleaner didn’t seem to give a crap.
Finally they tuned up and played. We prepared for rain but the sun came out! Everyone stopped, listened, clapped, smiled and in true British style wondered what the hell was going on! But less talk and more watch:
