I remember an radio-interview in 89/90 with MG, where he was asked to present a few of his personal favorite-songs/artists ...one of them which then immediately sparked my highest interest was the marvelous song ┤orpheus┤ by the up to that moment to me still completely unknown DAVID SYLVIAN... to make a long story short – before his solo-carrier he was the singer, songwriter and founding member of a band called JAPAN which released 1980, between their first two stilistically largely undecided and musically somewhat immature albums and their last imho rather over-ambitious one, two excellent albums which I would highly recommend to anyone who loves artfully synth-pop with enchanting vocals.

Well, ok I must admit, synth-pop, of course isn┤t the best description of that style... the intended emphasis was anyway rather on ┤artfully┤ and ┤excellent┤.
Probably more suitable: ┤Artistically sophisticated pop from the era of New Wave┤.


Somebody once said (don┤t remember who it was):

"Talking about music, is like dancing about architecture"

LOVE JAPAN! I didn't hear them for the first time until the 2000's, but it felt like coming home. I often go to sleep listening to the "Oil on Canvas" album.


The future exists, first in Imagination, then in Will, then in Reality.
