1982 release from ex-Plastics members Toshio Nakanishi and Chica Sato. Wikipedia sez of Nakanishi:
His first band, Plastics, had a world tour with Talking Heads and The B-52's in 1980. When the band broke up in 1982, he went to New York and formed Melon with Percy Jones of Brand X, Dougie Bowne of The Lounge Lizards, Bernie Worrell of Funkadelic and Chica Sato, trying to merge funk with Japanese Group Sounds.And pulling it off pretty well, I might add. Do You Like Japan? is the first Melon album; it also features playing by Masami Tsuchiya, Haruomi Hosonom, and Yukihiro Takahashi. This was a Japan-only release, I think, on Alfa Records. Nine songs, vinyl rip, get it here or here.
