Vanity Records (3)

Profile:
Label founded by music journalist Yuzuru Agi in 1978.
Vanity Records in Osaka was one of the unforgettable hallmarks of the early Japanese underground music scene of the late-70's. This label was founded by Yuzuru Agi, the music critic/editor of ROCK MAGAZINE. Agi was a sort of alternative visionary with a superb talent to assess new musical modes at a time when blues and West Coast-style rock still dominated the local music scene. He was also responsible for cloning the Japlish term "techno-pop" - which he used to describe Eno-produced bands like Talking Heads and DEVO - that later became internationally known via Yellow Magic Orchestra. Inspired by punk and the flood of indie labels that swept New York and London, Agi started Vanity Records in 1978, releasing 11 LPs, 3 singles, 12 flexis, and 6 cassettes between '78 and '82 (each release limited to 300-500 copies).
