I've started buying up Yellow Magic Orchestra LPs, and it just struck me that this pioneering Japanese experimental synthpop band is the right band at the right time to look back on and be influenced by. Just dropping this name, check 'em out if you haven't heard them. They were synthpop influences (along with Kraftwerk) on Chicago house. But they could influence more modern music too, if musicians would listen to them. Which is something I'd like to happen, so I made this post.
