Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Japan - the Art of Parties

When the ads for Japan's 'The Art of Parties' appeared in the Spring of 1981, every New Romantic worth his or her eyeliner took notice.

The single featured the band's most richly sumptuous dance track to date, wildly syncopated rhythm guitars and horns bursting across Steve Jansen's cascading drums, and Sylvian offering one his most irresistible choruses. Add in Mick Karn's increasingly baroque fretless bass, Richard Barberi's shimmering oriental synth textures and this produces one of the iconic singles of the year promising more to come.

In Canada the single was released as an EP, which is features here. It included the B-Side but added in another 2 tracks to flesh out the release. This proved valuable to the Japan collector as this was the better release than the UK version.

'The Art of Parties' reached number 48 in the UK singles Chart
