Mighty Eye is a feature of some confusing, recurring vision of the future. The guitar melody is a fusion of two hypnotic Washington Phillips songs, "Last words from Mother to Son" and "Lift him up, that's all."
Footage taken by Cory Ring during a Skyway Man tour of Japan in January 2016.
Norio Fukuda: (visible at 3:35) Humble, vast knowledge of his musical environment. Lord of curation. Owner of Sweet Dreams Press.
Naoto Kawate: (Visible at 3:49) Solo Guitarist. I think there's a vast ocean of frighteningly beautiful sea creatures inside Naoto and it takes constant focus for him to keep them from flowing out. He's a master of asymmetry.
Mississippi Takashi: (Visible at 3:44) Mississippi got his name from a bookstore he owned with the same name. When it closed, the name stuck onto him. He's a graphic novelist and master of drawing monsters with friendly faces and the people looking at monsters with mouths agape.
Asuna: (Visible at 3:57) He's known as the man of 100 keyboards, but I think it's more notable to say that he's the man who trained an army of plastic forest animals to talk through his guitar. He does not take his responsibility lightly. There might be a windup rooster crowing between phrases of a japanese dirge played backward through a walkman, but these are not gimmicks. They are mean players in his story of rhythm. And in concert is the music of the universe.
