Japan - Visions Of China

Just found out that Mick Karn died today.

Japan (the band) were a particular favourite of mine as I was growing up, even though I was never really into the whole New Romantic thing. Karn's bass playing, along with Steve Jansen's percussion were the main reasons for me falling in love with the band, and this song has the two of them working together brilliantly.

Rest in Peace Mick.

(and Gerry Rafferty and Pete Postlewhaite, who also died in the last week. What a crappy start to 2011).
