"NOW AND THEN, HERE AND THERE" - hello from Japan | GOOFYS HOLIDAY

Ohayou from Japan! :)

Lets introduce the japanese rock band Goofys Holiday from Numazu, prefecture Shizuoka.
From the country, where I started with asian music about 15 years ago. 

Founded from Takashi Endo (Vocal,Guitar) the band is actually a trio with A2C (Atsushi Yokoyama, Bass/Chorus,Jan 2010 - ) and Young (Drums/Chorus, Jan 2010 - ) with a long band history.

1994 the band was formed and played there first concerts in  the next years around Tokyo and other parts of japan. In 1997 Goofys Holiday released the 1st CD, which was completely self-produced and recorded. The album had an unusual sales as a self-produced CD at some record stores and attracted big attention.

1997, the popularity of the major distribution 2nd “maybe tomorrow…” explodes!
1998 Goofys Holiday participated the “CMJ MUSIC MARATHON” festival in New York, where all-around alternative bands gathered. Although it was the first overseas live performance, it received strong reactions such as entering the top 10 weekly charts of local college radio stations. 1999  the maxi single “ONE WAY” was released and hit No. 1 on the indies chart. 


In  2000, the 3rd album “bridge” was out and over 30,000 CDs were sold. With the mini album “3111”  in 2001 the new GOOFY ’S HOLIDAY sound appears with more groovy music. 

2002 the long-awaited 4th full album “MONOCHROME” was released with melodic and groovy sound. 2 years later, a special CD “NOW AND THEN, HERE AND THERE” was released. Expressing classic and new songs with deeper rock sounds. 2005, the new song “JOURNEY” and “PIECE OF TEARS” were provided to the soundtrack “KEITH” of the animation “BECK” by calling BEAT CRUSADERS Hidakatoru.

 

Yasui, who worked together for 14 years after the live in February 2007, withdraws from the band, but the band will be suspended. In January 2010, A2C (Bass / Chorua) and Young (Dr / Chorus) are official members and restarted! It is a place where attention is focused on future activities. (L to R) Young (Drums / Chorus) Endy (Vocal / Guitar) A2C (Bass / Chorus)
