From 1986 and getting a release in the UK and Japan for the respective fan groups. This collaboration between Japan’s Jansen and Y.M.O’s Takahashi.
Additional guest musicians included Ki-Ki on backing vocals, Carlos Alomar , Bowie’s guitarist) Hiroshi Sato, (on piano) and Hiroyasu Yaguchi (on saxophone and in the band Real Fish)
The track is sophisticated synthpop , a mad hybrid of “China Girl” and “Zoolook” and super extended on the twelve inch version.
“Betsu-Ni” is an upbeat bit of synthpop that builds nicely. A great missing track for the fans.
“Weirder World” is an instrumental version so you can appreciate the complex arrangements, especially, as you would express the percussion.
