Wax On, Wax Off

Fujiya & Miyagi (Pictured) Released their new album last week. 'Transparent Things' is a collection of their three 10" releases on Tirk Records, plus three new tracks. I haven't heard the full album as yet, but I can bet it will be full of Krautrock goodness in a Can, Neu!, Faust kinda way. Their other releases appeared on the now defunct label Massive Advance, including this excellent minimal remix from Two Lone Swordsmen, and we all know how big a fan Mr Weatherall is of early 70's German electronic, experimental Rock.

[EDIT] Mrs Brown's Fujiya & Miyagi special review.

This is wonderfully epic and addictive mystic rock complete with all the suspended electro beats and likes of Can’s ‘yoo doo right’, Kraftwerk and other well-paced krautrock timeless numbers. Listen herein for intermittent sounds of a squeaky door (or perhaps it is a loose window or a lost bird…), evocatively played stringed instruments, and unassuming lyrics whilst the drummer sheds a few pounds toiling away admirably throughout. What stamina (or is it a machine?) Collarbone is a rather funky mantra on the art of tying shoe-laces, avoiding ankle injuries, and learning ones anatomy. Intimate and also educational, with a capital E for enjoyment. Think i’ll play it to the sixth grade tomorrow, bugger drawing ellipses!
