Haruomi Hosono TUBE Interview
Hosono san making some music in the early 80’s using some archaic drum machines and bass sequencers.
My latest re-edit. Taken from Hosono’s first solo album, it is considered a nice piece of Japanese Rare Groove. Sit back and enjoy the groove.

I had a very short wish list of things I wanted to buy in Tokyo. This record being one of them. Not only do I love this record and band, I now have a good memory of hunting this record down.
I originally bought this while hanging with Skratch Bastid (side note: we both bought Japanese records that day) but failed to notice a major issue until the next week. The major issue being this is the self titled album, but the record inside the sleeve was the second album. I was hoping that someone may have listened to both albums and accidentally switched them. Not the case.
Now I am on the hunt for the second album, Kazemachi Roman. Looks like I have to go back to Japan…
