  1. As a fellow fan of Lamp, I cannot thank you enough for the time you take to translate these interviews. Please take your time for “Kanojo no Tokei”, I look forward to it very much!

  2. I just wanted to say that I really appreciate your Lamp translations. They’re a big inspiration to me musically and being able to read their interviews is an invaluable resource as a result. Thanks so much.

  3. A few days ago, I’ve discovered this band because of a custom Spotify playlist, and when I heard “恋人へ” I fell completely in love. Since then, I tried to find a traduction of that song. If you or someone can give me a hand, it will be grateful

      I’m glad to hear you discovered Lamp. Interesting that you fell in love with that song especially — I always felt like it was a solid enough song, but god damn, the one that follows that one on the album? Now we’re talking “masterpiece of music” level.
