Ippu-Do

Ippu-Do

Ippu-Do has been played on NTS in shows including The Pentagon Faceslap, featured first on 25 April 2015. Songs played include Sorrow, 'Aqua' Nostalgy and Chinese Reggae.

A Japanese techno-pop trio of the early '80s led by singer/songwriter Masami Tsuchiya, Ippu-Do was the missing link between Japan's Yellow Magic Orchestra and England's Japan -- neither as purely electronic as the former nor as prettily atmospheric as the latter. (YMO's Ryuichi Sakamoto collaborated with Tsuchiya on his 1982 solo album Rice Music, and Tsuchiya played guitar with Japan on the Asian tour documented on the live album Oil on Canvas.)
