[ BMG / ADA / LP ]
Release Date: Friday 5 March 2021
That Japan's breakthrough record Quiet Life was released in both 1979 and 1980 is uniquely fitting for a band who were about to step out of the glam rock, post punk shadows of the late 70s and deliver a record with a brand-new sound that would come to define the 80s.
Quiet Life was the third, final and most successful release on the Hansa Records label. A forerunner for the alternative/new wave sound of the new decade, the album would become one of the great classic British albums.
The record is now the subject of a major new reissue featuring a brand-new half-speed remaster of the original album, newly restored original album artwork and exclusive new liner notes.
