Welcome to our site!!! You can find here some music we like from different styles:mainly new wave,80's synth-pop and some disco 70's, but italo,electro,lounge,nu-jazz and jazz are also welcome.
They are always welcome and will be highly appreciated! If you have any request just feel free to ask!! Have a nice time in our blog!! Sakamoto arranges and co-produces. RS was nicknamed The Professor back then. Hosono plays bass. Currently Budget priced. Here we have an early if not the first appearance by all YMO members. A good example of late 70s studio pop. Not really related to their later Technopop sound.
A Technopop classic. Should appeal to early era YMO fans. Murdered by the Music from but unreleased in the West for two years is the more goofy and eclectic. The What, Me Worry? EP features three tracks from the LP of the same name — one with Japanese lyrics this time — plus another bright original and a sprightly cover of an old German tune. A fine album.
Possibly more an ironic connection with being neurotic, though I guess in its New Romantic attitude it, in coincidental hindsight futuresight? And naturally the mostly fast rhythms are very similar to those in YMO's music as well as the album's overall mood. But some other musicians make an Let It Roll (Pussy 2000 Vocal Mix) - Doug Lazy - Let It Roll (Pussy 2000 Mixes) too, such as Phil Manzanera and Andy Mackay both taking a break from Roxy Music.
Takahashi is in decent vocal form throughout where the usual echoes of David Bowie and Bryan Ferry from, again, Some People - Janis Ian - Janis Ian (8-Track Cartridge, Album) Music are never far off. On the cover a few pictures of a rather pensive-looking Takahashi are printed but the music is actually rather cheerful.
The first few tracks are alright if a bit interchangeable but starting with 'Drip Dry Eyes' a compilation album favourite they become excellent. It is ethereal and fabulous and man, I can't wait to get a copy of this album again! The tune Flashback includes all members of YMO. This album will appeal to YMO fans. The style changes drastically from track to track.
Not really a problem since it's very good. One of the best Yukihiro Takahashi album during his Yellow Magic Orchestra period, it is certainly a varied one.
Melody-wise most songs are strong and a few additional singers provide some welcome relief to Takahashi's "characteristic vocal style" to put it politelyalthough he does sing with real passion throughout this album. The two short tracks are instrumentals with a Japanese feel, whereas the songs are clearly influenced by, or themselves influenced the early eighties British synthpop scene featuring the likes of the Human League Heart In A Hurry - Yukihiro Takahashi - 四月の魚 Poisson DAvril . As usual the other two YMO members help out their friend here, but they only make an appearance on the wonderful 'Flashback', for which Ryuichi Sakamoto also provides the music.
Other highlights include 'Sayonara' which has Japanese lyrics, 'This Strange Obsession' written and partly performed by Zaine Griffthe melancholic 'Disposable Love' about the effects of a relationship breaking up and the fun 'All You've Got To Do'. A bit dull. Suffers from lack of guests. Interestingly, Takahashi doesn't drum — he sings, plays keyboards and guitar. Takahashi is in very good form with excellent arrangements.
Recorded Aug-Sep At barely thirty minutes more a maxi-single than a full-length album, this first post-YMO project by Yukihiro Takahashi is also a bit short on ideas. Its atmosphere is slightly lackluster — "moody" perhaps, but "wild" is a definite overstatement. A significant pointer is perhaps the fact that all the song-lyrics come from writers other than Takahashi. On the plus side, Takahashi's voice has never sounded better, making it less of a potential irritation and the addition of a few female backing singers also help things Tube - Ganez The Terrible - Free. Nothing awesome, but nearly all of it delightful.
Koji Ueno and Pierre Barouh appear. Takahashi acts in the movie. A large poster of "Yuki" is included. He was apparently seized by the urge to become Burt Bacharach; a surprisingly large amount of it is movie music, in the style of "sophisticated" '60s romantic comedy. Sakamoto, Hosono and Kenji Omura play.
Typical Takahashi, Nice but not very memorable as it's kind of middle of the road. Many thanks for the original uploader! Ive just got it few minutes ago to mye-mail:.
Various pieces of Heart In A Hurry - Yukihiro Takahashi - 四月の魚 Poisson DAvril show music.
Witty sophisticated listening. I take it that this is music produced for a fashion show. The cd is credited as a collaboration between Yukihiro Takahashi and Yohji Yamammoto.
The music is a combination of piano and computer. You can't dance to it but it seems to have a sense of humor about it. I'm not sure how else to describe it. Solid electronic pop music. Leads right into 'Broadcast from Heaven. It has a transparent plastic insert with Takahashi's face and title, underneath is the cd booklet which can be folded several ways to give various backgrounds to the picture of Takahashi.
It also includes his business card. This is another great cd. All synth and samples. Gaku seems to be a dog, thus making this cd a good companion to Sakamoto's Adventures of Chatran. The theme is full of clockwork percussion which is interesting. Overall pretty fun. There is one absolutely killer techno-pop track included Mis. Worth the whole cd for this track alone. The cover is styled like an old National Geographic magazine.
Has some lite electronica type beats, bits of rock guitar, not much more or less than you expect from him. Genre: Electronic Style: Ambient, Gotta Get To You - Belinda Carlisle - Belinda (Betamax). The CD booklet has a removable lithographic cover. Yukihiro Takahashi first came to prominence as the drummer of The Sadistic Mika Band, and became known to western audiences after this band led by Kazuhiko Katoh, formerly of The Folk Crusaders toured and recorded in the United Kingdom.
After the Sadistic Mika Band disbanded, some of the members including Takahashi formed another band called The Sadistics, who released several albums. Finally Takahashi recorded his first solo album Saravah in After the Yellow Magic Orchestra disbanded in the mid 80s, Takahashi went solo and released a large number of solo albums, primarily intended for the Japanese market.
Takahashi has collaborated extensively with other musicians, including Bill Nelson, Iva Davies Heart In A Hurry - Yukihiro Takahashi - 四月の魚 Poisson DAvril Icehouse, Keiichi Suzuki of the Moon Riders often as a duo dubbed "The Beatniks," although Suzuki essentially functioned as a member of Takahashi's backing band during the Moon Riders' brief hiatus and in particular Steve Jansen.
Both of these reunions The Ride (Interlude) - Irini - Dont Make Me Wish tours of Japan, and an album of new material. Sketch Show has released two albums, one of which Loophole has been released in the UK. He'll go from a reggae-style version of "Stop in the Name of Love" to a new-romantic soap opera to tongue-in-cheek pop powered by galloping synths to poignant soul-searching to a loopy update of Duane Eddy guitar instrumentals.
