Gentlemen Take Polaroids

Here is a brilliant song from Japan's fourth studio and last album with the same title and with the original lineup consisting of David Sylvian on vocals and guitar,  Richard Barbieri on keyboards, Steve Jansen on drums, Mick Karn on bass and Ray Singer on guitar.  "Gentleman Take Polaroids" was the single released and it holds up quite amazing.  This was the song that truly defined their sound. The band broke up in 1982 over creative differences and they all went on to make other projects as a result with some degree of success. I don't think some of the band members were happy that they were identified with the New Romantic movement which I think it's dumb. Anyhow they were brilliant while they lasted and here it "Gentleman Take Polaroids" to prove it. Enjoy!
