You sound like a very passionate person, so I'd be curious to hear, what are your thoughts on the Visual Kei scene and it's alleged connections to the underworld, with lots of ex-boso, etc, with the entire scene being ran by a controlling parent label that "licenses" out to smaller localized child labels which pays interest back to the parent, exactly like the yak? Nothing matters more than connections, and if you aren't part of the "family" and considered an outsider, you would be out of many opportunities (venues literally won't host you) whether as a band or label.

Could you speak on whether your scene have any parallels or similarity to that, given how being part of the night life ties into that side of Japanese culture? How do you navigate this and protect yourself?

What would you recommend for flying from Vancouver (YVR) to Germany, and around Europe?

Hi Ray, thanks for doing the AMA!

This one's a little more personal: as someone who was also born in Taipei (then immigrated to Canada), what brought your family to Australia in the first place? I'll always be supportive of your endeavours!
