pierre & franz - life In tokyo 12'' 1989

originally performed by the unmistakably fashionable new romantic london outfit "japan" in 1979, the band comprised of david sylvian, mick karn, richard barbieri, his brother steve jansen and later on joined by rob dean(guitarist), made some damage in the uk charts early in the eighties with records such as tin drum and gentlemen takes polaroids.
a cover version of pierre & franz is quite a hi-energy ensemble, same harmony with italo taste. now i've heard a lot of bad cover versions but not this one. probably duo's sole single on disco magic records.
