YELLOW MAGIC ORCHESTRA

Yellow Magic Orchestra

Service - Clear Vinyl Edition

    'Service' was the sixth and, at the time, final studio album by Yellow Magic Orchestra. The band dissolved the following year after a world tour, but would later reform in 1993 for a one-off reunion album, 'Technodon'. Each member would continue their already established solo careers, while Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi also formed the band Sketch Show (with Ryuichi Sakamoto assisting), which later turned into YMO.

    Like '×-Multiplies', it contains a mixture of YMO songs and comedy sketches performed by Super Eccentric Theater, or SET Service features “You’ve Got to Help Yourself”, which was previously featured in instrumental form on the previous album, 'Naughty Boys Instrumental'.

    BGM - Clear Vinyl Edition

    180 gram audiophile vinyl
    4-page insert
    PVC protective sleeve
    First pressing of 1000 numbered copies on transparent vinyl

    On their fourth album 'BGM' (1981), YMO continued where they left off with 'X∞ Multiplies', by venturing further into synthesizers, drum computers and experimentation with rhythm, sequences and speeds.

    This album is more focused on atmosphere and mood, some even say this album is a turning point for YMO and the international pop music scene. They successfully merged lyrics, sound bites and their signature electriconically programmed music on 'BGM'.

    "1000 Knives" and "Cue" are the most famous; the hand clap on "1000 Knives" is probably one of the most used samples in the 80s, early 90s.
