Big in Japan was a punk band that emerged from Liverpool, England in the late 1970s. They are better known for the later successes of their band members than for their own music. According to the Liverpool Echo, Big in Japan were "a supergroup with a difference - its members only became super after they left."Big in Japan left a recorded legacy of seven songs: one on a single, four on their EP From Y to Z and Never Again, and two released on a compilation. As of 2005, five out of these recorded songs are commercially available, on the compilation album, The Zoo: Uncaged 1978-1982.

Carmody were an Italian minimal wave group who formed in Torino in 1981. Typical of underground synthesizer-driven acts from that era, the group's music combined sparse, cold electronic rhythms with vocals expressing feelings of longing and isolation. Originally a duo consisting of Alberto Ramella and Andrea Lesmo (both former members of Teknospray), they expanded to a trio with the addition of guitarist Max Casacci. The band only recorded three demo tapes between 1981 and 1985 before disbanding; Lesmo later joined Celtic rock group LabGraal in the '90s, while Casacci formed electronic rock group Subsonica and established a label and recording studio called Casasonica. In 2009, German label Anna Logue Records released A Better Spider, a CD compilation of the group's material, and their first proper release. Numerous Carmody tracks subsequently appeared on '80s new wave/minimal synth compilations, and Mannequin released Sleep on Mirrors: The 1981-1985 Tapes, the group's first vinyl release, in 2015.
