Rock Magazine was founded by music journalist and Vanity Records founder Yuzuru Agi in 1976. Agi focused primarily on early electronic minimalism, post-punk oddities, deviant new-wave and granular noise synthesis in a time where Japan’s music landscape was overwhelmed by American pop and surf rock. This issue is the “Rough Trade” issue and contains articles on bands on the Rough Trade label including vinyl listings, write ups and photos, as well as a feature on 2-Tone Records.
