Julian Cope, eccentric and visionary rock musician, follows the runaway underground success of his book Krautrocksamplerwith Japrocksampler, a cult deconstruction of Japanese rock music, and reveals what reallyhappened when East met West after World War Two. It explores the clash between traditional, conservative Japanese values and the wild rock'n'roll renegades of the 1960s and 70s, and tells of the seminal artists in Japanese post-war culture, from itinerant art-house poets to violent refusenik rock groups with a penchant for plane hijacking.
