MARCH 2019: Hanami Return Tour
March 2019, Scratchy will be setting sail on his sixth outing around Japan.
The Hanami Return Tour will once again be seeking a sky full of the sakura cherry blossom. Along the way, Scratchy will be hooking up with many of his ol' friends from the Japonicus, Caribbean Dandy and Club Ska DJ posses, whilst playing in places both new - Higashi Murayama, Yamagata and Utsunomiya, which is famous for its Gyozas - as well as revisiting Kiryu, Sendai and, of course, slotting in some Tokyo gigs as well.
SAT JAN 19th 2019
Scratchy kicks the year off with a long overdue return to Helsinki to play alongside Finnish legends Pelle Miljoona Oy, themselves now reaching forty years since they first came together. Veritable new-comers!
