Subject: Origins of "Big in Japan"
Date: May 13th  3:16 am

It refers to bands who are not successful in the States or Europe. A band that is 'Big in Japan' is normally one that is regarded as not good enough to make it here, or out of date. It can therefore be used to be a bit critical of someone's success

Big in Japan by Alphville in bio
Alphaville is a German synthpop/new wave band which gained popularity in the 1980s

Enjoy,
