A blog exploring beyond the music of the group JAPAN

Richard Barbieri and Akiko Yano

Thanks for joining me! I’ve started this blog away from the Japan Nightporter site and facebook as a way to share stories and images relating to my musical journey, which really began when I got into the music of the 80s band JAPAN. The group were very open about the music they liked themselves, and in particular did more than any PR person or writer to promote interest in Japanese music.

Since the early 80s I have discovered so much amazing music, and this blog is a way to express my enjoyment, share links to interesting clips and as is the case with my first post, share my personal history with the Akiko Yano album “Tadaima”, recently made available for the first time outside Japan by Wewantsounds.
