Ski Oakenfull Radio Show #7 with Tomokazu Hayashi - YMO Special Vol. 4 - Yukihiro Takahashi

Playing tracks by

YMO, Sadistic Mika Band, Yukihiro Takahashi and Yukihiro Takahashi & Steve Jansen.

I've just come back from a short trip to Japan, and while I was there I was lucky enough to hook up with my good friend Tomo to record another radio show! This time we look at the early work of YMO drummer Yukihiro Takahashi. I hope you enjoy the selection.
The show was recorded on Saturday 8th April 2017
Here is the tracklist:



Oh, great! I'll check that out Tomokazu-san. 👍 Ski, I'm based in Crouch End in North London at the moment, but I'm always out and about, including SOAS on Monday evenings, as it happens 😊 Off to Japan for the first time in December/January. CANNOT wait to go crate digging. My Luggage is going to cost me mega-yen, I bet! Still, it'll still work out cheaper than Discogs. For the record (lol) I hope to buy the Super Xevious 12", Miharu Koshi's Paralellisme, but I still think finding the Testpattern album on the cheap is perhaps a little overly optimistic...


If only I'd known about Nr. Hayashi's talk last year


Oh man, if ever you guys want to meet for a pint and talk about YMO, Yen Records etc etc, then please just say. I've absolutely loved these recordings. I did a talk a history group called "Japan the Band and the Bands from Japan" this summer

Hey, thanks for the message! I will let you know if Tomo san is planning to visit the UK again and maybe we can go for a pint! Where are you based?

Tomokazu Hayashi

Delighted to hear you are interested in the talk event. Your history group sounds great. My article on YMO (with specific focus on Hosono) is about to be out in The Wire's October print, all being well. Hope you'll enjoy that.
