yellow magic orchestra solid state survivor

Yellow Magic Orchestra was formed in 1978 in japan. They’ve been cited by many people as the pioneers of electropop, and were supposedly so popular in their home country, that business men today still wear the YMO “techno cut” hairstyle. Everyone from Eric Clapton to J.Lo to Hitoshi Sakimoto (composer of the final fantasy tactics soundtrack, as well as numerous other video game scores) have been influenced and inspired by these crazy men. they “spread out” as a band (aka: broke up) in 1984.

“Solid State Survivor” was not released in the USA, but it looks like you can get it on amazon for about 20 bucks.
