Thank you very much for Ino, I didn't have it in my collection. Is it a bootleg or a commercial release, because I never saw this album on Tomokama's record's website, but the quality is real good.

I found out that the real name of the track of the track n.10 of Pistol isn't "Jean-Gene ni Kike", but "Jean Genet ni Kike", you just misspelled it (Jean Genet was a prominent, sometimes infamous, French writer and later political activist)
