One of the most popular and influential bands of the Techno era of the 1980s was a trio from Japan known as The Yellow Magic Orchestra, or YMO for short. Having blazed a trail for electro-Pop, J-Pop, and Hip-Hop during their initial phase, YMO went on to become an important International touchstone in the world of Electronic Music.
Here is a concert featuring YMO, recorded at The Hammersmith Odeon in 1980, just prior to to their massive success.
I understand they’ve never officially broken up, rather gone on hiatus and pursued solo careers – so rumors about a new lineup and a possible tour are rife. But in the meantime, have a listen to the band just as they were in the process of taking off and the enthusiastic response from the audience.
Recorded by the venerable BBC.
