Product description

Music On Vinyl : Dedicated to producing high quality 180g pressings on virgin vinyl. Presented in heavy quality card sleeves and within a protective plastic wallet. This release will come with no less than 8 bonus tracks on a total of 2 LP's and the first 1000, numbered, copies will be pressed on red vinyl! Japan, whose members were David Sylvian, guitarist Rob Dean, keyboardist Richard Barbieri, bassist Mick Karn and Sylvian's brother Steve Jansen as a drummer, began as a group of friends, who all studied at the same school and became an alternative glam rock outfit in the mould of David Bowie, T.Rex, and The New York Dolls. In 1977, the German label Hansa held a contest that elicited entries from over 1000 bands. The eight winners, including Japan (and an unknown group called the Easy Cure who later became the Cure) received recording contracts and, a year later their debut 'Adolescent Sex' hit the shops. Obscure Alternatives is Japan's follow-up to this debut. Its final track, The Tenant, a piano based instrumental, was the first notable shift towards the direction their later material would take. 180 grams audiophile vinyl. 2LP edition with 8 bonustracks. Limited edition of 1000 numbered copies on RED vinyl.
