how do you feel about the surge of younger kids taking an interest in Japan? what do you think brought it on?

It’s not unusual for younger kids to look back into musical history, I think we all do that at some point, but perhaps the difference now is that the internet can create more of a trend in that respect, particularly if the band were very visual. Maybe another contributing factor is that because we were not the type of musicians who felt compelled to keep churning out the same thing for decades in order to remain commercially successful, JAPAN has become very much isolated and of that time, and perhaps that’s part of it’s charm. Having never been exported out of the 80′s it’s maintained a sort of idealistic purity, and subsequently allowed the original members to musically evolve.
