--2010 was the 10th anniversary of when the band was formed, and as such you were engaged in a pretty vigorous schedule.
tax: Yeah. Last year was really busy... We were on tour starting February, in May we played in the Hibiya Open-Air Concert Hall, in July we released our best-of album, “MONKEY MAJIK BEST~10Years & Forever~,” and starting in October we went on tour again. Before that we went to Greece to work on mixing our new album, “westview,” and before we went to Greece we did the pre-production for it.
