In memoriam: Mick Karn 1954-2011
With the release of Quiet Life Japan went into new musical territory. The story behind the pivot point in the career of the vastly underrated band.
The second Japan album signals a change in course. The band itself doesn’t like looking back on it, but the album holds up surprisingly well.
Japan – Oil On Canvas: 35 years later still a monumental goodbye to one of the greatest bands of the early 1980’s. A review of one of my all time favorite albums.
Mick Karn’s first solo-album coincided with the unfortunate disintegration of Japan. Karn makes his bass talk on the album and that makes for an astounding result.
Japan’s Tin Drum: 35 years old! An utterly unique masterpiece by the former glamrock band Japan. A tribute to the best music can produce.
