High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Yura Yura Teikoku is a
3-piece band from Tokyo's underground music scene centered around K
enji. They have an eclectic sound usually described as psychedelic
rock. Whilst renowned and highly influential within Japan, it took
them 16 years since their formation in 1989 to play a show outside
of Japan, performing in New York City in 2005. YURA YURA TEIKOKU
was formed in 1989 with vocalist/guitarist Shintaro Sakamoto as
leader, bassist Chiyo Kamekawa and a succession of other members.
Drummer Ichiro Shibata joined in 1997 to form the current lineup,
and the trio soon signed with Midi Records. The band released five
studio albums, one live recording album and two greatest hits
albums on Midi. In 2005, YURA YURA TEIKOKU signed with Sony Japan
and released their ninth studio album, "SWEET SPOT," and a remix
12-inch,"SOFT DEATH / FRANKIE TEARDROP" (Suicide cover). "SOFT
DEATH" was embraced by the dance community, and "SWEET SPOT" was
elected one of the best albums of the year in various media in
Japan and overseas.
