Description
Japan were an English new wave band formed in London in 1974 by David Sylvian (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Steve Jansen (drums), Richard Barbieri (keyboards) and Mick Karn (bass guitar). They started out as a glam rock-inspired band but developed their sound to incorporate electronic music and art rock influences, eventually becoming an influence on the 1980s New Romantic scene in the UK, although the band themselves were not a part of it.

The band achieved success in the late 1970s and early 1980s, releasing nine UK Top 40 hits, including the 1982 Top 5 hit single "Ghosts", and a UK Top 5 live album Oil on Canvas (1983). They split in December 1982, just as they were beginning to experience commercial success in the UK and abroad.

This set was recorded at The Budokan, Tokyo in December 1982 and was their fifth from last show on that tour. The band had become friends with Yellow Magic Orchestra who joined them on some of the performances here – “Bamboo Music” is a duet featuring Akiko Yano, and “Taking Islands In Africa” features Yukihiro Takahashi. Ryuichi Sakamoto also plays on those tracks.
