Sandii & The Sunsetz – Dreams Of Immigrants (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 7th February 2018

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

For Immigrants and DREAMERS

-DjPaulT Recommended 12″

” Dreams Of Immigrants” is a 1982 single by Japanese new wave/synthpop band that collaborated from 1979 until the 1990s. The Sunsetz, led by Makoto Kubota, and Sandii started as separate artists, and each has a separate discography. However, their collaboration provided a particular body of work that is representative of the period, and which successfully blended Eastern, Western and pop influences.

“Dreams Of Immigrants” was penned by lyricist Chris Mosdell who has written lyrics for Sarah Brightman and Boy George; co-written lyrics with Michael Jackson had his work covered by Eric Clapton. The Sunsetz spent a lot of time in the UK, recording with David Sylvian and Fun Boy Three producer Dave Jordan. Sounds, NME and Melody Maker gave The Sunsetz extensive coverage which gave the group a lot of credibility in Japan, leading to increased record sales. Their live act gained many fans in the international music industry following their support slot on the final Japan world tour. The Sunsetz went on to tour and play festivals with Eurythmics, Inxs, Blondie and David Bowie.

**The two songs on the b-side are blended together forming one continuous mix. To keep the integrity of the original vinyl I did not split the tracks.
