This book has a great load of details on Japan’s music influences after World War 2. Julian Cope has done a great job discovering the culture and background of the rock scene in Japan. Very interesting read and makes you really wanna track down the records featured in the book. Definitely for people who get a tingly feeling after knowing a bit more about how the music we hear today has been derived.
