It may be the musical equivalent of returning to motorcycling in your 40s but a few years ago I chanced upon the Japanese band Moscow Club and through them a music scene that was reminiscent of Britain in the mid 1980s and since have kept a watching brief on developments therein.
So comes the time to give the world the benefit of my time well spent with a fairly arbitrary selection of the great and the good with a particularly indie bent. I’ve tried for a selection that works as a whole rather than forcing each band’s best song into the mix.
It was the Moscow Club use of acrylic (I know) gave me the idea to use 日本語 to skirt round my late 80s band having the same name as a better known American one of that era. This proved apposite when Firestation records of Berlin asked to put out a compilation of our tunes. So the ギツ Retrospeculative 結局 should be out in June hopefully.
