Sylvian & Sakamoto: Keyboards and Hairspray

Ryuichi Sakamoto & David Sylvian: Bamboo Music

Released in 1982, this is one of the last moments of unbound futuristic pop! Shortly after the sound of the decade would turn into overblown and overproduced schlock.

I always wonder why the retro-train has not stopped at these Bamboo houses yet. After all, this has it all: highly artificial music, tons of make-up, white rooms with fog, keyboards and hairspray.
