Having rediscovered how deeply ingrained Ghosts by Japan is in my psyche, I thought I would post their albums in this thread for everyone else to explore.
I hadn't listened to their first two albums before (not keen TBH, although the seeds are there))
, they are somewhat of their time (Sylvian does punk! )
, as they all are I guess.
Edit: First discovery was actually through Quiet life, (not as I originally wrote here ~ "as I originally discovered them with Tin Drum (& Ghosts unsurprisingly)", still it was a long time ago...
I thought I would post them in release order anyway.
There is still something fresh in their approach IMO, viewed from this current age of homogenised music (again IMO
Ghosts was originally posted in my "Your favourite track ~ right now ?
