Wow, I love Japan.
Sylvian is a hero of mine, i actually cried when i heard him sing nightporter live for the first time. Sakamoto was great too (not exactly Japan, but a co-conspirator with Sylvian). Mind, i saw him a few years ago at Union Chapel - he was playing with some warbling gits - FREEFORM JAZZ!!! It was dreadful, absolutely vile!
Mick Karn was supposed to play King Tuts a few years ago - he cancelled (but i kept my ticket! Yay!!)
