BIG IN INDONESIA??
17 October 2003
quick sales and all girl schools

The last territory to release Marty's "Music For Speeding", Indonesia, released the album on Oct. 15 and sold over 700 copies in two days, which for Indonesia is an extremely impressive number. Even more impressive is that this is depite Marty having yet to ever visit the beautiful country. Indonesian distributor Alfa Records are very pleased with the initial reaction to the record.

In other news, Marty will appear on the nationwide broadcast of "Music Fair" in Japan. This popular program is also available on many satellite systems around the world. Marty will tape his segment on 11/11, so the broadcast date will likely be within the following week. Check back here for the exact broadcast time. This is Marty's first ever appearance on "Music Fair" so see it if you can!

Also-Marty's 10/19 show with Aikawa Nanase is at an Osaka all girls college. It is a limited capacity show of 2,500 and only students of this college can attend. As Marty would say, "hmm..."

5 more shows in Japan throughout the year with Aikawa Nanase including the "Countdown" live television program on New Year's Eve.

There will be 9 events for MI Japan as well as a clinic tour of South America for Ibanez in the works. Marty will feature his new SZ model guitar. This is the axe that he beat violently in the Guitarevolution shows.

There will also be a December event in Bangkok, Thailand.

Those of you in Japan, do not forget to look out for Aikawa Nanase's upcoming single, "Ai no Uta" coming out this winter. This is probably the hardest rocking track in her collection, it's no coincidence that Marty laid down walls of guitars for this tune.
