Japan - Life In Tokyo


On this date in 1979, Japan released their seventh single, "Life In Tokyo". It was backed by "Life In Tokyo (Part Two)". Neither track appeared on an album. The 12 inch version of the A side was added as a bonus to their album, Quiet Life, when re-released on CD. The London new wave disbanded in 1982 after five studio albums. Their last live performance was, ironically enough, in Japan.
