"Films which disbanded leaving only one album called "Misprint" (CD includes the liner note by Mr. Kenso Kato & Dr. Kotobuki. ) regrettably is my favorite techno pop band. I loved their sound and cover art..... Personally, I would like to call them as "Japanese Buggles" (alternatively "Japanese Tubes") with the intent of my greatest appreciation to them. The titles of song are Bugglesque such as 'TV Phone Age' ('Living In The Plastic Age'), 'Take Me On The Linear Jet' ('Johnny On The Monorail'), 'Crash Kids' ('Kid Dynamo'), '30th Century Boy' ('Astroboy'). They are the most catchy techno pop band in Japan! There was a plan to release their second from \EN label, but it never happened. I really want Alfa to release it. At least I will buy it. Films were active until around '88 with a series of member changes. Ex-Films members are important in the Japanese music scene though they are not too visible. Mr. Akagi formed Clever Rabbit and produced Miwako Saito, Haruo Kubota ("Flying New Asian" in '91 as co-producer), etc. (as Nobuo Akagi). Saeko worked in Cinema (before Films), then as solo with Keiichi Suzuki. Both Nakahara (also played in Yapoos) and Suzuki formed Portable Rock with Maki Nomiya. Mr. Nakahara is currently working with Mari Fukuhara, ex-Shi-Shonen in Fishermen Tit Tot. Mr. Suzuki is currently working with Mr. Takanami, ex-Pizzicato as KC's. Mr. Iwasaki worked in TPO, as solo and on commercial songs. He is also staring a new unit, :ginette:, from his label Swimming Bullet. Mr. Komatsu played in Tokyo Bravo, Shingo Kubota's Muscle Beat and SEX, a house unit. Mr. Kanji Honma, a programmer, released his "Synth-Fusion" album under the name of Honma Express. Mr. Sotoma produced Mimori Yusa and recently release his solo album. Mr. Tomoda is ex. Shi-Shonen as you know."
