Ippu-Do: Discography

Now here is one of my favorite groups. From humble New Wave/Surf rock beginnings to Avantgarde synthpop, Ippu-Do had a short but amazing run from 1979-1984. Under the guidance of Yellow Magic Orchestra and Japan, Ippu-do never achieved fully received the recognition of their peers but left their own imprint in the budding New Wave scene in Asia and Europe. If you enjoyed my earlier posts from the band's vocalist Masami Tsuchiya solo career, then I strongly urge you to check these out. I found these on a now defunct blog a few years ago and I am forever grateful for it! I also have a two albums from the bands keyboard player, Akira Mitake if anyone is interested! Enjoy!

This is an amazing post! I listened to Night Mirage and was blown away by the second part of the album - it turns out it's not part of the original tracklisting (according to discogs, anyway) but possibly disc 4 of something called "Magic Vox" (http://www.sonymusic.co.jp/artist/Ippudo/discography/MHCL-1021)? So interesting. Anyway thanks so much for sharing!!!
