Halmens X "35 seiki"

Halmens X is a limited time project led by two original members of new wave band Halmens (formed in 1979), Saeki Kenzo and Sensui Toshiro. 2016 marks the 35th anniversary of the release of album "Halmens no 20 seiki" (1981), and a special concert was held last August.

Then here comes "35 seiki", featuring many guest artists including Nomiya Maki (ex-Pizzicato Five), Suzuki Keiichi (Moonriders), Urbangarde, Furukawa Mirin and Yumemi Nemu (both of Dempagumi.inc), Tentenko (ex-BiS), Azuma Hitomi and more.

A special release event will be held on November 16 at Shibuya Club Quattro, which is said to will mark the end of the Halmens X project. Details here.

Released at the same time is greatest hits album "Halmens Deluxe + 11 History" (Amazon, CDJapan) which includes 11 bonus tracks, and a 2-CD + 7" box of pre-Halmens band Shonen Homeruns (Amazon, CDJapan).
