Ghostbusters vs Lowrider in Tokyo

Here’s a slice of street life…lowriding in Shibuya district, Tokyo.

@MKB0T—Driving home last night behind a ghost busters car. I think. It only had red lights. The indicators and brake lights were the same lights.

Saaaa.
This so-called “ghost busters car” is a 1959 Chevy Impala lowrider (shown in the bottom half).
The Ghostbusters vehicle, called the “ECTO-1,” was a 1959 Cadillac ambulance, a professional chassis built by the Miller-Meteor company (shown in top half). Ecto-1

It’s 2018.
Those tiny 5.20 tires with pin-thin whitewalls didn’t become a thing until the 1980s in the Lowrider community. In 1968, a lowrider would have fat whitewalls mounted on five-spoke Cragars or Astro Supreme rims.

The name susuMetro! (すすめメトロ!) plays on word — “susumeru” meaning to “continue” or “move forward” and Metro.

Godzilla doesn’t have a real birthday, but the original film was released on November 3, 1954, so fans like to think of today, the third, as his 63rd birthday.

Furi-furi — shake-shake

furi-furi_big-boy

Furi-furi means shake-shake.

The SPIDERS’ lead singer, “Monsieur Kamayatsu” has died at age 78. He was the Furi-furi “folk queen” of Japan and was still rocking in engrish on TV and in regular live performances right up to his end.

 

In the west, Japanese performers like The SPIDERS are (mis)labled “Garage Punk” and outsider rock…but in Japan they are categorized G.S. (Group Sounds) bands.
