Hi spacebrother
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Rich in Washington:

This is that hopped up Western music those ungrateful kids were listening to in Tokyo Story (not really, but I can imagine).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Cereal administered. proceed, Mr DJ :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Rich in Washington:

Just post-War Japan fascinates me but other than cinema, I know next to nothing about it.
Avatar 7:06pm spacebrother:

I was listeneing, GG, Just had to do my playlist and couldn't comment. I didn't know some of that stuff about the Monkees.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Power Papi:

The Peanuts were the twin Fairies in the Gamera films.
  7:07pm TheHipMen:

You know this early post-war J-pop sounds like music from around the same time as America in the 1940's, 50's and early 60's
Avatar 7:07pm spacebrother:

PP - Yes. Mothra Actually.
Avatar 7:07pm StringOFperils:

OOoooh. They were fascinating. The Peanuts....yeah, they summon Mothra.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - wild about Don Kirschner getting The Archies because they couldn't answer back ;-)
Avatar 7:08pm spacebrother:

@ HipMen - It was heavily influenced by the occupation.
Avatar 7:10pm spacebrother:

@ GG - I also knew the man who wrote all the music for the Lance Link shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

That Evolution Revolution track was incredible!
Avatar 7:12pm spacebrother:

His name was Bob Ememnegger.
  7:13pm TheHipMen:

So what year is this from?
Avatar 7:14pm spacebrother:

The Teahouse track is in the last 10 years. I couldn't get any other info.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Power Papi:

  7:17pm TheHipMen:

This is like the music you hear on Sounds Spectacular with Ursula 1000

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My daughter was just saying about how back in the 90s Channel Four in the UK was pretty much wall to wall Pizzicato Five for background music :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Rich in Washington:

We overlap all over each other. Don't tell! We don't wanna run afoul of the social distancing police.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Rich in Washington:

Love the Gojira bed music, spacebrother!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Tome - I see what you did there ;-)
  7:32pm TheHipMen:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I am chair bopping as we speak! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Aitch:

Loved that song since I was a bub.

  7:35pm TheHipMen:

Is this band even Japenese? Because it sounds like a English New Wave band rather than a Japenese band?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@TheHipMen - en.wikipedia.org...
  7:39pm TheHipMen:

Wow, early J-sythm Pop before the 1980's
Avatar 7:40pm spacebrother:

@ GG- Thank you for looking that up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Rich in Washington:

This is awesome, Greg! I've never heard of P-Model before. This is almost Magma-esque.
Avatar 7:43pm StringOFperils:

HA ha ha. Japanese Magma. Interesting idea
  7:44pm TheHipMen:

Polysics, yes, and it's cover of a P-Model
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Power Papi:

Polysics make me want to hit my head against he wall (in a good way)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Aitch:

Like a mad/bad night out in Shinjuku
  7:45pm TheHipMen:

More Polysics
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Aitch:

Loving Polysics, be looking that up later
Avatar 7:47pm spacebrother:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I need to find that then! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Aitch:

Which has to be a good thing Spacebrother
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Rich in Washington:

Yeah, I really dig the Devo influence on Polysics. They're amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Power Papi:

  7:48pm TheHipMen:

You know Polysics had a song featured on the Scrubs soundtrack

  7:50pm TheHipMen:

Avatar 7:50pm spacebrother:
