Uchoten

Uchoten were a legendary experimental new wave/post punk band from Japan that formed in 1982. When Uchoten first formed, they were signed to frontman Kera's independent label, Nagom, which housed the likes of the influential metal group Kinniku Shojo Tai, as well as legendary indie acts such as Tama & Zin-Say (the latter became Denki Groove, the world renowned Japanese electronica duo).

Uchoten were a legendary experimental new wave/post punk band from Japan that formed in 1982. When Uchoten first formed, they were signed to frontman Kera's independent label, Nagom, which housed the likes of the influential metal group Kinniku Shojo Tai, as well as legendary indie acts such as Tama & Zin-Say (the latter became Denki Groove, the world renowned Japanese electronica duo). After making a humongous ruckus in the Japanese indie scene for four years, the group finally made their major debut with 1986's "Peace", under Pony Canyon. In 1990, the group transferred over to Toshiba/EMI, where they released their breakthrough album, "A Town That Colorful Merry Fell", that same year. The album managed to break the Oricon charts at number 29, and stayed in the charts for 4 weeks. However, after releasing "Deccacci" (also in the same year of 1990), the group announced its split. Their legacy remains untarnished, and the group remains to be a huge influence on various bands today. Along with The Willard and Laughin' Nose, Uchoten were 1/3 of the Indies Big Three. « hide
