This is the week where I’ve most acutely felt the shortcomings of deezer (just to fuel the old debate). Dorian HAS to include a Japan track. Just has to. And none of the contenders are available. Just for the record, I think he has a choice between the early electronic Morodor – infused “Life in Tokyo” or the much later “Visions of China”, “Cantonese Boy” or “Sons of Pioneers”. Close call. I think I’d go for “Visions of China” if only for the beautifully produced, muscular percussion that became the hallmark of Steve Janssen’s contribution to their distinctive sound.
Never been to Asia myself. Never been out of Europe in fact. Isn’t that shocking? My teenage fascination for Japan (the group) alone should have spurred me on to make the journey. It just always seems that work or family considerations have been uppermost. Oh stop making excuses FP!
So what I want to know is: once I get the courage up to make that long haul flight to Asia (big place) which places would you recommend? Where should I go? What’s unmissable?
