Wish You Were Here, pt. 1
Anamanaguchi is a band that we here at FMLY completely adore and endorse. We booked their very first Los Angeles show and documented the whole thing which is still on my video camera, we go to all of their shows that we can and we sit on 7 hours plane rides to New York together. Because our love for this band, they'll be the inaugural post of "Wish You Were Here" where we will spotlight either a FMLY band or a FMLY friend.
NYU students, Anamanaguchi, are quite the adventurous quartet that now features Los Angeles drum guru and FMLY member Luke Silas (Nephews, The Histories). Their myspace says it best, "Anamanaguchi combines the raw, electronic tones of the NES sound chip with driving, melodic guitars in an indie rock/powerpop fashion. NYU Music Technology student Peter Berkman began experimenting with the console in late 2003, swapping songs with friends from his hometown. Looking for a way to perform the 8-bit songs live, he got together a band..." The band will be playing two New York shows before heading off to SXSW! Oh, and if you're wondering where the name came from...think "Hoo-tie-and-the-blow-fish" / "An-a-man-a-guch-i", that is a privileged FMLY secret.
