Kajagoogoo Interview – Japan 1984
Today, we have something to share with you that should be new to most KajaFax readers.
KajaFax have recently obtained some previously uncirculated interview footage of the band, recorded in Japan at the Tokyo Prince Hotel on July 10th 1984. In an uncut, open and honest interview, the four remaining Kaja’s talk about their plans for a “post–Limahl” Kajagoogoo.
The interviewer is Osamu Masui with interpretation by Steve Harris, who has kindly provided us with this clip to share with you now.
Steve Harris is an American journalist who has spent the last 30 years living and working in Japan, and was in the 80s and 90s in the privileged position of interviewing anybody who was anybody in the industry at that time, as he explained to KajaFax:
“….I either interpreted for Japanese interviewers at these interviews or conducted the interviews myself. I collected the interviews on cassette tape and had one day hoped to share the archive — so here it is. It is very much a work in progress, so hopefully the number of interviews will continue to grow as I digitize and upload tapes from the vault…..”
