Moody Monday: Japan "Nightporter"
5 English blokes from South London. When I first heard the song "Television" by Japan in '78, I thought they were a cool funk band out of Harlem. As we all do when we get older, we soften up with our style and taste. Suave lead singer David Sylvian on vocals and bass god Mick Karn along with Sylvian’s kid brother Steve Jensen on drums made up the rhythm section. The song "Nightporter" off the 1980 album "Gentlemen Take Polaroids" still gives sounds haunting 37 years later.
