Video: Ankle Injuries - Fujiya & Miyagi

BlackPlastic has been digging Fujiya & Miyagi for getting on for a year now after picking up their Transparent Things LP in a record shop based purely on the artwork and the sticker on the cover. The sticker had quotes from Tiga and Andrew Weatherall - with Weatherall's quote being particularly spectacular, something something along the lines of (BlackPlastic is paraphrasing as the sticker isn't to hand) "surpasses anything that can be condensed into a quote and stuck on an album cover". Now if that's not cool BlackPlastic doesn't know what is.

Anyway, Fujiya & Miyagi seem to be getting a fair amount of attention following their recent Jaguar ad - Gorgeous is just the beginning, with high positions in the iTunes chart and now a hit video on YouTube. The video is consists solely of six sided dice and is very reminiscent of what is quite possibly BlackPlastic's favourite music video of all time, The White Stripes 'Fell In Love With A Girl' (as directed by Michel Gondry), beautiful due to its simplicity. BlackPlastic has no idea if this was created without the aid of computers but either way it's pretty cool.

Sit back and enjoy. The Transparent Things album is definitely worth checking if you enjoy this and 'Collarbone' (the track from the Jag ad).
