Yumi Yumi

Connollys, Leap, West Cork

Fri 12 Dec 2003 (note: this event has already taken place)

Yumi Okamura and Kaori Tsuchida originally came to Europe from Kumamoto City in Japan for an extended holiday to play music. The response to their unique brand of spiky powerpop and sixties go-go beats was so overwhelming that when they returned to Japan with their new found confidence, they won two national competitions and signed a record deal. Intensely loved by a growing fanbase, Yumi Yumi are probably best known in the UK for their appearance on the Carling Homecoming TV advert.
