About

About Japan

Japan

JAPAN. British new romantic pop / rock group founded in London, at their peak in the early 1980s. They are probably best known for their hit singles ; "I Second that Emotion" and "Ghosts" which reached No5 in 1981, but their 1981 "Tin Drum" LP is still much acclaimed as one of the most innovative albums of its genre.
