about

Produced, engineered and mixed by David Naughton, Yuriko Yuriko features Nick Duffy of The Lilac Time on banjo and accordion, Lensei Nishizawa of jammin' Zeb on piano, and HeeYoung Rhee on cello. Ayumi Sato plays upright bass, Yoko Osawa hits the drums, with brothers Selwyn and Duncan Walsh on vocals and acoustic guitar. It was recorded at Nanahari, Tokyo in February 2013, and at David's home studio in Shikoku, in the heat and humidity of the Japanese summer in 2013. Photography by Rudy Van Os. Cover design by Matt Hogan, featuring Mamiko Okuno, styled by Keiko Terachi. The Watanabes would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to all of the artists and musicians above for their wonderful contributions, as well as to Maki, Kan, Kimi and Kaiya for their hospitality. They would also like to pay homage to the studio cockroach, who scuttled off pretty quickly.

lyrics

Yuriko, Yuriko, I know you're feeling pretty low now
'Cause your boyfriend's run away to Tokyo to be a skateboard pro.
If he was a little younger, he might have well stood a chance there
But as it is he's more likely to fall on the tracks.

Would it make you happy or sad
To hear that he's living in Yoyogi Park?
Would it make you smile or scream
To hear that he's failed to conquer his dream?

Yuriko, Yuriko, I know you've had a big blow now
'Cause your fiance's run away and all he's left behind are bills to pay.
If you were a little younger, you might have well chased after
But as it is your more likely to dwell on the past.

Would it make you happy or sad
To hear that he's living in Yoyogi Park?
Would it make you smile or scream
To hear that he's failed to conquer his dream?

Yuriko, if you were a little younger...
Yuriko, if you were a little younger...
