Fujiya & Miyagi
are one of JD Beauvallet's favorite Brighton band, and easily mine. Live they make me dance in a creepy immobile way, and make my heart beat faster than it should. their music has been labelled as some neu!, can, krautrock copycat shizz, but it's way more than that isn't it? Fujiya & Miyagi makes me think of the song Got 2 Let U by the Knife on the Deep Cuts album: tiny whispery cheeky lyrics with banging lucozade beats. After 3 very good looking 10" that helped us pass the winter with minimal damage, their second album, Transparent Things, is coming out on the 15th of May, and for your own sake, buy it. plus you will be able to say you liked them "before" "the hype, before they get remixed into some amazing dancefloor action stuff, before they get so very famous their concerts will be priced on a Madonna scale (n'importe quoi).
