Japan

Japan

Japan were an English band formed in 1974 by David Sylvian (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Steve Jansen(drums), Richard Barbieri (keyboards) and Mick Karn (bass guitar). Initially a glam rock-inspired band, Japan developed their sound and incorporated electronic music and foreign influences. They eventually became big in the UK’s early-1980s New Romantic era.

Japan achieved success in the late 1970s and early 1980s, releasing nine UK Top 40 hits, including the 1982 Top 5 hit single “Ghosts“, and scoring a UK Top 5 with the live album Oil on Canvas (1983). The band split in December 1982, just as they were beginning to experience commercial success in the UK and abroad. Its members went on to pursue other musical projects, though they reformed briefly in the early 1990s under the name Rain Tree Crow, releasing an album in 1991.
