Something completely different, yet great music: art-rockband Japan and their bassplayer Mick Karn. The latter passed away on Jan. 4, I compiled a musical tribute featuring my fave Japan-tracks like Ghosts and Visions of China, Mick’s solowork, songs he played on by Kate Bush,  Joan Armatrading and Gary Numan and other projects like the short-lived supergroup Nina (with Kate Pierson from B52’s).Karn and Japan are the ones who learned me to listen to other sounds, different spheres.

French girls, singing. No, sighing. Making me sigh. Ah.

    Great tribute idea, some of these I haven’t heard. I wanted to be Mick Karn when I grew up, still do. A stunning and inspirational fretless player, Mick also performed ax and woodwinds on many tunes. He’ll be missed.
