….When asked why they split up in 1984, there is an awkward pause.

“We hated each other,” says Hosono.

“Now we are too old and weary to fight,” laughs Sakamoto. “And it is fun to work together again.”

“And it is so much easier now,” says Hosono. “In the old days, our synthesizers had no memory function. When we played live, it was a nightmare. As we were playing one song, we had a computer programmer backstage, tapping out the computer code for the next song.”

“And, if it was taking him longer than usual,” says Takahashi, “we’d have to take longer solos.”

“Now we can just press a few buttons, and everything is set up for the next song,” says Sakamoto. “Japanese technology is very good, isn’t it?”
