Got To Have Pop
The Moderns... Got To Have Pop (RealAudio 02:47). From 1977 Records. "...1977 Records was started in 1992 by DJ Lodio (Nobutada Yaita), of the critically acclaimed, pioneering Tokyo club night London Nite, and began life as a mail-order recordings distribution service. In 1999, 1977 Records moved to the Dojunkai building in Harujuku, hub of Tokyo's fashion district, where it operated as a record shop under an eighteen month license. 1977 Records took its first steps as a label in December 2000, concentrating on the repressing and re-releasing (all above board, of course!) of `70's Punk, Mods & Power-Pop, with 35 quality releases firmly under its belt to date.

Also... don't miss "That Late '70s Show" at Radio Rumpus Room. "...If the British Invasion revived rock from its national doldrums in the early '60s, it was punk and new wave that shook it from its Bicentennial-era slumber."
