Nick Kent’s List

6-13-12                     Nick Kent’s List

Needless to say, My friend Nick Kent likes electronic musique and Japanese music!

Here’s Nick’s list!

Popol Vuh – Hosianna Mantra
Edgar Froese – Epsilon in Malaysian Pale (aka “Ypsilon In Malaysian Pale”)
Vangelis – L’Apocalypse des Animaux (O.S.T.)
Toru Takemitsu – Legacy for the Future
Tonto’s Expanding Headband – It’s About Time
Isao Tomita – The Tomita Planets
Tomoe Shinohara – Super Model
Jean-Michel Jarre – Equinoxe
Kitaro – Tunhuang
Brian Eno – Another Green World

Susumu Hirasawa (of P-Model) – Siren
PModel – P-Model (1992)
Y.M.O. – BGM
Logic System – Logic

Kraftwerk – Computerworld
The Eccentric Opera – Hymn
Bernard Herrmann – Fahrenheit 451
Perrey and Kingsley – Kaleidoscopic Vibrations
Telex – Looking for St. Tropez
Sonoko – La Debutante

And no Haruomi Hosono?

Nick knows an awful lot about Japanese music!  From this list, the only thing I know nothing about is The Eccentric Opera.  I own 10 of Nick’s Top 20 – I might prefer different titles from Popol Vuh, Eno, P-Model, Y.M.O., Kraftwerk & Telex – but I think he nailed it for Vangelis & Edgar Froese.

I think I prefer:

Popol Vuh – Affenstunde

Brian Eno – Before and After Science

PModel – Karkador

Y.M.O. – Technodelic

Kraftwerk – Ralf & Florian

Telex – Sex
