Sketch Show (Haruomi Hosono & Yukihiro Takahashi) - Audio Sponge 2LP (Yellow Vinyl)

Regular price $56.99


It's almost twenty years since the break-up of Yellow Magic Orchestra - Haruomi Hosono, Yukihiro Takahashi and Ryuichi Sakamoto - the legendary techno trio that ruled Japanese and European electronic music from late 70s through to early 80s and set the standard by which all the electronic artitsts are judged. Although the three regrouped temporarily in 1997, it's been thought unlikely that the greats would rejoin and record an album together - but they did, this time in a different form. Here is the Sketch Show, the duo formed by Hosono and Takahashi, unveiling the moods and moments that will take techno/electronica music deeper into the new century. The set features contributions from the likes of Tei Towa and, as you may have expected, Ryuichi Sakamoto.
