Hi Steve! All the members of Japan ( Including Rob Dean and David Sylvian ) have at one time or another expressed their appreciation for the music of Mark Hollis and Talk Talk. It seems you might have seen them as kindred spirits. What is it about that work that appealed to you? Many Thanks.

A combination of good writing, adventurous arrangements and a great attention to detail in the recordings. You can hear the depth of work that went into their later albums. I’d say Tim Friese-Greene was a key factor.
