Biography

Fujiya & Miyagi are a European group formed in Brighton in 2000. They are currently signed to Impossible Objects of Desire worldwide.

They are self-described as being heavily influenced by German bands such as Can and Neu! as well as the 1990s electronic music artist Aphex Twin. The origins of the band's name come from a character in the film The Karate Kid and the brand of a record player. The first several years after the band's formation were spent in relative obscurity; however, they began to see a drastic spike in popularity between 2003 and 2006 thanks in large part to very favorable reviews from prominent music publications such as NME and Pitchfork Media.

The band were also the subject of an episode of the MTV2 documentary series This is Our Music in 2006. Their song "Uh" was also featured in an episode of Breaking Bad and an episode of British sci-fi series Misfits. "Collarbone" was featured on an episode of the US adaptation of the British teen drama Skins.
