Nostalgia for the 1980s usually plays out more as an aesthetic than an authentic yearning to go back to the days of Rubik’s Cubes and “Miami Vice.” But that’s not the case for Aiki Kiyohisa, 38.

“My dad’s company collapsed in 1989, when I was 9. After that we lost almost everything … our house, lots of money. I literally want to go back to the ’80s, because it was the best time for me,” the musician says, adding with a laugh, “I have no good memories from the Heisei Era.”
