I was listening to my friends on the phone and, while talking, I realised something really important was happening to me.
My phone was going off all the time, the buzzing was coming from everywhere, and there was a lot of music playing on the speakers.
It was the music of a new song that I had just discovered.
It wasn’t the usual radio station.
Instead, it was a Japanese band called the Ghosts.
“I was going through a breakup with my boyfriend, so we decided to take our music to the streets,” said the 24-year-old music teacher from the ACT.
“We got a few gigs on our own but it was pretty intense.
We would get out and play and dance.
We were trying to get away from our problems.
And then we got the Ghost Band.
It just exploded.
There were so many different styles.
There was one thing called ‘Barefoot Bop’, which was the beat you get on the radio and it’s not a big song, but it’s so catchy that people loved it.
It got a lot more attention and people started coming up to us and asking for the song.”
The next thing I knew I was surrounded by the most amazing music.
When I was a student in Melbourne in the late 2000s, there was an Australian indie band called The Ghosts.
It went through a few stages of success before they signed with Japanese record label T.I. They went through many changes but I always remember the first time I met them, and I was just 15 or 16 years old.
It felt so weird being so young, but I fell in love with them immediately.
They started playing a lot at school, and they also became friends with a group of friends called The Kooks.
I was playing drums for them.
They also started playing at some local clubs and it became a little bit of a big thing for me, but not to them.
I think I got into the Kooks in a bit of an awkward moment, but they always kept on going and kept making music.
It’s one of the reasons why I decided to come back to the States.
But they weren’t the only band that I was into.
There were other bands that were really good, that I enjoyed and that I knew about.
I’m not saying that it was just a good time for me in the States but it just seemed to work for me.
It allowed me to feel like I was making something of myself.
I didn’t really want to go back home because I was getting to know other people there.
I was at a local pub in Sydney when I was 22, and my friend said, “What’s going on?”
I had a big crush on a girl who was a little older than me.
At that point I was already really into the Ghost Music scene, but at the time I didn.
It didn’t seem like the best time to make a career out of it.
I did go to a few shows and was just trying to do something different.
I had this band that was just doing the same thing and I wasn’t really sure what to do.
It seemed to be the only thing that I wanted to do at that time.
I remember thinking, ‘What the hell am I going to do now?’
So I went to my parents and asked them if I could go back to Japan.
My parents were like, ‘No, you can’t go back there because you’ll get in trouble.
You’ve got a job at a Japanese restaurant and you’re still a student at the same school.’
So I told them, ‘I don’t want to be a student anymore and I don’t know what I’m going to be doing.’
They were really shocked.
They thought it was the wrong time.
They were like ‘Are you sure?’
And I was like, “No, it’s fine, I’m just going to come to Japan.’
They thought I was crazy and I just kept saying, ‘You can do this.
You’re an adult now.’
They didn’t like it, but there was nothing they could do.
The Ghost Music World tour I had been away from home for three years, and when I got back, I was determined to try and make something of my life.
I got to Japan and I went through this whole experience where I was very, very, really stressed about being an adult and making a living.
It became a very big deal for me because it was all my fault.
It was really hard.
I spent all my money on school and I had to spend all my time at work, and then I got a chance to go to Japan for two months and get to know this new country.
And I love it.
For me, it came very, the first day, the whole week.
I really didn’t know anything about Japan.
