Tokyo-based singer-songwriter Nanako Sato(?????) teamed up with Motoharu Sano(????) during her time in school and submitted an entry into a collegiate women's song contest, which made it to the finals. This led to her signing with Better Days/Nippon Columbia and the release of her debut album, Funny Walkin'. In charge of arrangements is 'Master' Yuji Ohno(????) of Lupin III fame, who weaves a classy pop record with bold jazz vibes. Sato's nonchalant, whispering, vocal style - which would go on to deeply influence the later Shibuya-kei style - comes together with Sano's broad musical arsenal encompassing ragtime, good time rock n roll, and jazz to create one beauty of a record. The opening track 'Subterranean Couple' has been rediscovered to great acclaim amid the recent 'city pop' craze.
