ABOUT

*English ver. follows after Japanese ver.

ヤマジカズヒデ(gtr/vo)・ナガタヤスシ(b)・ナカニシノリユキ(ds)によるオルタナロックバンド。炸裂するギター、ソリッドなのに浮遊感のある音像は観客を魅了し続けている。2015年には「ARABAKI ROCK FEST.」に出演、Televisionほか海外アーティストとの共演など、1991年の結成以来、現在も常に挑戦的な姿勢は他の追随を許さない。

ヤマジは2013年より「FUJI ROCK FESTIVAL」に毎年出演するほか「ナイン・ソウルズ」をはじめとする豊田利晃監督作品の映画音楽を多く手がける。近年はクラウトロックに傾倒、ベルリンをはじめ海外での数々のセッションに参加、バンドの楽曲群にその体験が反映されている。

ナガタは長年にわたりThe Ding-A-Lingsでも活動、ナガタ+ナカニシはDIAMONDS名義で山口冨士夫トリビュートライブに参加するなど、昨今ではメンバー個々の活動もめざましい。
