The Chords

It's remarkable seeing which bands manage to make it over to Japan. As if the appearance of cult glam rockers Silverhead last weekend wasn't enough, now Tokyo is getting paid a visit by late-'70s mod revivalists The Chords. Though they were overshadowed by contemporaries The Jam at the time, this four-piece are still held in high regard on account of their first – and only – album, 1980's So Far Away. The original members reunited in 2010, and will be stopping off in Tokyo for a pair of gigs before heading off for a tour of Australia. Their first gig comes with support from local mod enthusiasts Furs (with The Collectors' Hisashi Kato) and The Five.
