Megumi Igareshi, better known as Rokudenashiko, gains Mike Scott’s support
Waterboys frontman Mike Scott jammed out a song to support Japanese artist Rokudenashiko, who’s on trial in Japan on obscenity charges.
‘Rokudenashiko is a brave artist, and her work, which celebrates the vagina in a playful way, isn't obscene at all. She's fighting a form of state censorship, and doing it on her own without any corporate or company backing. As a fellow artist, I support her. She's also great fun and that inspired me to write a mischievous slice of psychedelic funk in her honour’, says Mike Scott.Crew members Jon Green and Neil Mahony rocked the song with Mike during a soundcheck on The Waterboys’ Modern Blues tour.
