The group TOKYO was founded in the early 80’s near Frankfurt, Germany. The studio musicians and song-writers Robby Musenbichler (vocals, guitar), Ken Taylor (vocals, bass),
Fritz Matzka (drums), Lothar Krell (keyboards) who previously had been part of the Michael Wynn Band and Supermax completed their new band with Klaus Luley (vocals, guitar).
Their first and self-titled release ‚TOKYO‘, produced at Music Park Studios in Bad Homburg, Germany, was released in 1981 and immediately stormed the charts.
The band then started to produce some live video themselves. The title track ‘Tokyo’ became a rock classic and received tremendous airplay in every rock club.
Until today, this track still appears on many 80’s rock compilations.
The beginning of the successful ‚Neue Deutsche Welle‘ era took away some time from the band as all members continued to work as successful studio musicians for various different projects. This success and the connections to an international management brought them together with the greats of the rock genre such as Toto, Deep Purple or Meat Loaf.
The bonus tracks ‚Young Kids In Love’, ‚The Time Is Right’, ‚Behind The Faces’ and, ‚On My Mind’ have been recorded during the 80’s.
Robby Musenbichler, who today owns a studio in Graz - Austria, has re-produced these tracks between 1995 and 2004. The tracks ‚Carry on’, ‚Cryin’ and ‚Girl’ are newly recorded versions of the originals – both technically and musically up to date.
