Arrow Mind Games

Yello Magick Orchestra Firekracker..
Following an advertising deal with Fuji Cassette, the group sparked a boom in the popularity of electronic pop music, called "technopop" in Japan, where they had an effect similar to that of the Beatles and Merseybeat in 1960s Britain..A testament to the influence of YMO on fashion is how many middle-aged Japanese businessmen still have the "Techno cut" haircut, modelled after the group.. And apparently, they're very happy with it..By 1980, YMO had become the most popular group in Japan, where they were performing to sold out crowds.. The single "Computer Game" had sold 400,000 copies in the US and reached No. 17 in the UK Charts.. The group also performed "Firecracker" and "Tighten Up" live on the Soul Train TV show December 1980..
