Biography

Sinister little buggers, ventriloquist’s dummies. But those wooden weirdoes and the people behind them provided inspiration for Brighton’s electronic funk superstars, Fujiya & Miyagi, when the title track set the tone for their deepest, most accomplished album to date.

“Ventriloquizzing comes from the idea of people speaking for you, like adults do with ... Read more in Amazon's Fujiya & Miyagi Store

Editorial Reviews

Kraut-Rock Flavoured Space Funk With their own very distinct sound, Fujiya & Miyagi release their second album. Full of quirky, catchy little numbers, our only criticism is it's over far too quickly!

5.0 out of 5 stars do you wear reeboks in heaven? May 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD
my answer is yes, I'll even wear the high-tops to kick it old school... my only condition: I gotta have this album playing in the background. it is absolutely catchy from start to finish (it reminds me a little of the Hot Chip album, Junior Boys' recent material, even some AIR back when Moon Safari was the shananigan... it still is actually), but they got their own krautrock/electronic thing going without taking themselves too seriously... just listen to the lyrics for crying out loud... they're hilarious. the "collarbone" track is outstanding, as well as "photocopier", "in one ear..." and the aforementioned "reeboks in heaven"... they are perfect to kick it back before going out, or even for the after-party... it will get everyone in a terrific, funky, let's-get-up and dance mood... highly recommended.

Leave it to a few UK studs to come up with a sound this brilliant. 'Hilarious Euro-pop with slick bass lines' is a fairly accurate description but doesn't do this album justice. The recording is crystal and the beats are easy and fun to follow. "Got to get a new pair of shoes, to kick it with her, not kick it with you" is just one example of F&M's delightfully amusing choruses. This is perfect conversation-piece music that will extinguish any drama or awkward silence at your next gathering. Your guests will thank you, and your mp3 player will appreciate your good taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars best live show ever November 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD
This album was a gift from a more musically educated and exposed friend than i, about 4 years ago. Loved it. Inspired me to see F&M in concert twice, both instances opening for Peter Bjorn and John- both, some of the best shows i've ever seen. F&M- you definitely put on the best live show i've witnessed in a small venue, to date. thank you!

Format:Audio CD
Transparent things is only ok. It's not terrible but it's not amazing. If you like Fujiya & Myiagi you should like this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a Japanese band September 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD
But they are still good. Just kidding. Everytime I throw them on somewhere, i.e. parties, lounging around, bat mitzahs, people always ask, "what is this great music". It's F&M peoples, and they're great. Bought this for my sister for her birthday, you should do the same. No sister? Treat yourself. Thank me later.
