About The Book
Explore the wild and wacky world of Japanese pop music (J-Pop) in Nippon Pop, the first full-length book in English and Japanese on the subject.
Written by Steve McClure, Billboard magazine’s Japan bureau chief, Nippon Pop blows away the tired cliche about Japanese pop — that it’s nothing more than music written and performed by a bunch of no-talent idols — and turns the spotlight onto some of the incredibly cool music now coming out of Japan. Besides focusing on the music itself, Nippon Pop also concentrates on the people who make the music, such as Tetsuya Komuro, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and a host of others — from the famous to the deservedly obscure.
Profusely illustrated, Nippon Pop brings out the color and the craziness of the Japanese pop scene. It’s a must for anyone interested in Japan or pop music.
Provides a strong visual introduction to the bands and personalities behind the Japanese music scene — Includes the history of Japanese pop music and examines current trends in indic, acid jazz, techno, ambient, rap, the Avex dance boom, and much more — Introduces the music emerging in Japan, the world’s second largest music market In Nippon Pop, Billboard magazine’s Japan bureau chief Steve McClure delves into the rich and fascinating world of Japanese pop music. Moving confidently through Japanese pop music history as well as the current scene, the author highlights many of the musical treasures to be found in this multi-billion dollar business. Beginning with a background introduction to some of the major stars that have come out of the Japanese scene, he focuses on current trends, including the Shibuya sound, indie bands, acid jazz, techno, and ambient rap.
