In A Model Room

Release Notes
  • This is P-MODEL’s first full-length album and the first production by Masahide Sakuma.

The 1st full album “N A MODEL ROOM” released by P-MODEL in 1979 will be reissued for the first time in yellow color vinyl!

P-Model hail from Tokyo, Japan. They clash head-on with DEVO quirk, in an era well before “devo-core”. Lead by Susumu Hirasawa, P-Model remain one of the most influential Japanese artists, not only on myself, however, the group has had a profound influence on Japanese punk rock.

In A Model Room was the group’s debut record; a direct dissociation from the increasing popularity of progressive metal/rock of the time; a plunge into disfigured grooves and intricate time signatures, whilst still remaining irresistibly catchy and direct. A masterpiece… love at a glance.
