NEWS:

22 September 2015

'Madamme 0' from CD Poesy at Play by you me & us was broadcast on NHK-FM and Chris Cutler and Yumi's messages were read during tribute to Daevid Allen section of a special all day prog programme on 21 Sept. You can listen here

 

18 March 2015

Daevid Allen has departed from this planet on 13 March, but he is always with us.

Chris and Yumi are planning to make DVD from 2013 Japan tour for the people who have 'rain check' from 2014 Japan tour.

20 May 2014

Due to sudden illness, Daevid Allen can not take part in Japan tour of you me & us, but Chris Cutler and Yumi Hara decided to go ahead without Daevid as he wanted us to do so. By hearing this news, we got incredible number of musicians to play with us wishing Daevid's quick recovery, including Alfred Harth (CASSIBER etc), Mitsuru Nasuno (Korekyojin, Altered States), Kazutoki Umezu (KIKI Band etc), HACO (After Dinner etc), Ryoko Ono (Sax Ruins) and we call it 'Get Well Soon, Daevid! tour'.

We will issue Rain Cheque (1000 yen worth) with message from Daevid and drawing for all members of audience which can be used against next you me & us Japan tour when Daevid is back. And you can write 'Get Well Soon' message on a special notebook we carry during the tour, and we will pass it to Daevid.


(Hiroshima date only) The first 10 members of audience will receive 'angel bear' handmade by the organiser, and the bears are kissed by the lion puppet which Daevid gave Yumi.

Alfred Harth (ex-CASSIBER, as, pocket trumpet, Chaos pad) and Sato Yukie, will tour with Chris Cutler & Yumi Hara, upon hearing Daevid Allen's ill health. As Alfred had already left CASSIBER when they did the legendery Japan Tour in 92, so this will be the first ever performance in Japan for both Alfred and Chris play together.

There will be three talk events by Chris Cutler & Yumi Hara during their forthcoming Japan tour: Yamaguchi (25 May), Aomori (1 June) and Akihabara (2 June)

you me & us CD 'Live in Japan' (title TBC) will be released at the beginning of forthcoming Japan tour (23 May-4 June), remastered by Bob Drake.
