Poster This! JAPAN (David Sylvian) 1982

Great concert posters from the past

Band: JAPAN (London)
Who: Eccentric new wave band (1974–1982, 1989–1991) looking
like the New York Dolls, led by voice/face David Sylvain who had
and still has a remarkable solo career.

Where/when: Hammersmith Odeon, London – 1982

Below, their best-known, controversial 1978 track Adolescent Sex.

Well, the sidewalk’s trading love as subway lights grow brighter
We’re just another hype, but the pressure’s getting harder
A lovers’ etiquette; make love on first impression
And adolescent sex with juvenile intentions

Get on up, get on up
Get on up, take it much higher
Get on up, get on up
Get on up, take it much higher
