INFO > While on tour in their namesake country in 1980, UK band Japan met Haruomi Hosono, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and Yukihiro Takahashi of Yellow Magic Orchestra. Later that year, Sakamoto co-wrote and played on “Taking Islands In Africa,” the closing track to Japan’s fourth album, “Gentlemen Take Polaroids.” It was the first of many collaborations to come between members of the two groups, including this upbeat single by YMO and Japan’s respective drummers.

  1. Hi,
    I’m a big fan of David Sylvian And Japan And related (or so I thought because I didn’t know about the existance of that CD single and so my reputation got spotted!!)
    Usually I don’t ask for broken links to be fixed, but this time it’s because it looks like I can’t find it anywhere else.
    Could you re-upload it please, it is the first and the last time I ask for a re-upload to you… Please.. It would be once in a lifetime..
    Available to pay back the favour to you.. just ask for something ok?
    Hoping not to be a pain in the ass,

    Fabrizio from Italy
