The single ended up going double platinum, and was the fourth best selling single of 1990. As the years ran, the band got less and less popular within the mainstream scene, and ended up splitting in 2003, after nearly 20 years together as a band. The group were known for their extremely cooky sound and childlike vocals from frontman, Chiku Toshiaki, a commonly associated trait with bands within the Nagom timeline. « hide
