Japan - Live At Budokan 1982

Japan were a British group, who originally formed in 1974 in Lewisham, South London. The band achieved success in the late 1970's and early 1980s, when they were often associated with the burgeoning New Romantic fashion movement (though the band themselves have downplayed any such connection). Japan's last ever performance was on 16th December 1982 in Nagoya, Japan, this was just five days earlier on the 8th December 1982 at Budokan Hall, Tokyo, Japan. The band decided to split just as they were beginning to obtain long-overdue commercial success both in their native UK and internationally, with Oil On Canvas becoming their highest charting British album, reaching number 5. Both Hansa-Ariola and Virgin Records continued to release Japan singles into 1983. Source: Soundboard & FM. Sound Quality: Very good stereo mp3@320kbps Genre: New wave, post punk, synth pop.
