Japanese Rock 80’s

From the royal road of BOØWY and Rebecca, to the rising punk, metal and funk
The new standard of the 80’s, recaptured from a modern perspective!

The 80’s was the time when Japanese rock music permeated the living room. In part, it was so popular that it became an idol, and conversely, its musical reputation has been left behind. We have selected more than 240 albums that recapture the Japanese rock of the 80’s from a modern perspective! This is a guidebook that allows you to rediscover the ’80s, from the royal road that symbolized the era to works from around ’90 that have been neglected until now.
