Karate Kids. Fuyija & Miyagi, beinflusst vom Krautrock der 70er und Electronica der 90er, haben auf ihrem Album “Transparent Things” (Groenland / Cargo / 16.03.2007) 9 Disco Punk Songs abgeliefert, die in Szenekreisen, von Erol Alkan bis zu James Murphy, schon gehörig für Aufsehen gesorgt haben. “not just one of the year’s freshest dance records but also the wittiest.” sagt The Guardian.

‘Their wry humour makes this mixture of new material and tracks from vinyl-only singles (fans of which include Tiga and LCD Soundsystem) not just one of the year’s freshest dance records but also the wittiest.’ The Guardian

Transparent Things is the title of a book by Vladimir Nabokov, and also the title of the latest album from Fujiya & Miyagi. Following the sell-out success of their first three Tirk 10” vinyl-only singles, In One Ear & Out The Other/Conductor 71, Collarbone / Cassettesingle, Ankle Injuries/ Photocopier, this latest release compiles new versions of those six tracks, available for the first time on CD, with three previously unreleased scorchers: Sucker Punch, Transparent Things, and Cylinders.

Now that ‘Transparent Things’ has managed to take on a cult life of it’s own and with an ever-growing worldwide fan-base it was decided to re-release the album.

Fujiya & Miyagi are David Best (Miyagi, vocals, guitar, occasional but strictly non-progrock Moog), Steve Lewis (Fujiya, keyboards, beats, programming), and Matt Hainsby (Ampersand, bass guitar).

The story of how they met and formed the band variously reports a mutual hero-worship of world heavyweight wrestler Kendo Nagasaki (from Wolverhampton, and like the boys from F&M, not a Japanese cell in his muscle-bound body), and a shared interest in krautrock and early-nineties electronica discovered while warming the subs bench during Sunday league football.

And the name…? David explains, ‘Miyagi was taken from the film ‘The Karate Kid’ and Fujiya was the name of a record player. It just looked really nice written down. And it was the only name we came up with.’
