The most impressive thing about YMO is an amount of work they have done in eighties. I mean, just imagine members of Kraftwerk or New Order producing a whole bunch of local pop stars. I bet we westerners would have quite different notion of how good pop music can actually be.
Man... Winter Live 1981 and it's visual accompaniment are so good. Check out "Light In Darkness" live, which features some AMAZING psychedelic portraits of the band members: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hy-15AiBWdU
Hey, I'm trying to make music on my own, I recently released my first album, do you have some time to give it a try? It's only 30 minutes, c'mon.

I'm sure you're going to like it. All my info are in the video description.
I've read that the lyrics to BGM were printed in one of their books, "Techno Bible" maybe? I can't remember. Anyway I wonder whether any listeners know where these lyrics might be found online? Definitely interested in seeing whether some of the more indecipherable bits, like the conversation in "U-T" or the end of "Camouflage" are included.
