Japanese Television

EP 1 & EP 2 Reissued

Confidently walking the line between surf rock, psych and krautrock, London-based quartet Japanese Television quickly became a band Lodown carried close to its heart. And on Feb 28 their highly sought-after first two EPs will finally see their vinyl reissue via Tip Top Recordings.

“The band went into the studio with Kristian Bell (The Wytches) who artfully captured the raw spirit of their live performances to 8-track tape. The tracks make up their debut self-titled 2018 EP, which was named EP of the year by both Gideon Coe and Amy Lame at BBC 6 Music and was swiftly followed by EP II.
This new release combines both of these sold out releases with the addition of four Mark Riley BBC 6 Music Session tracks on digital and heavyweight vinyl formats released via boundary-defying Chicago label Tip Top Recordings.
The two heavily sought-after EPs were met with an overwhelmingly positive reception with their limited run disappearing quickly following release. The decision to bring these two cuts together, paired with their respective live recordings, completes the impeccable full Japanese Television body of work to date.“
