Japan - Obscure Alternatives (double red vinyl)

Japan's second album still possessed an energetic rawness very different from their later work, but also hinted at the band's more discreet adventures to come.

This 180g double LP re-release also has 8 bonus tracks (including live tracks and versions of Life In Tokyo, I Second That Emotion and European Son).

These are the last of the initial 1000 numbered copies (red vinyl).

PLEASE NOTE: there is a chance of some sibilance on the vocals on Side D on all pressed copies. This seems to be due to a stamper error at the factory. 99% of the copies we have sold have been ok but we have not checked these final ones as they are shrinkwrapped.

Out of stock.

Japan - Adolescent Sex (red vinyl + bonus 7)

Japan's debut is a world away from the sophisticated pleasures of Quiet Life and Tin Drum, but has an energetic and inventive character of its own.

The raw beginnings of an innovative band.
