Guniw Equipment were a Japanese option rock band from the 1990s that dwelled within the outskirts from the blooming visible kei genre, pressing the envelope too much in their personal surrealistic dreamscape visuals and sticking with a Westernized sound instead of following the regional pack led by Luna Ocean — they combined Pixies’ angular riffs with pop-punk sensibilities, textures of My Bloody Valentine, and other things that they happened to think about at this time. The band loved moderate achievement and gathered a loyal group of fans, however in 2000, they required a hiatus that ended up being permanent. Guniw Equipment was were only available in 1989 by Total (Tomo Furukawa), who was simply interested in merging his artwork with music. By 1992, Jake became a member of the project like a bassist, overtaking guitar duties aswell after some time, with Total presuming the post from the vocalist. Asaki became a member of in 1994, 1st like a support guitarist and like a full-time bandmember responsible for guitars and development. Guniw Equipment also sported a thorough set of support players offering musicians aswell as dancers. The music group began playing concert events and quickly scored a gig with Victor Entertainment, however the 1st recording, Niwlun, didn’t arrive until 1996, when Guniw Equipment also recorded their visuals on the VHS launch and scored a TV award for his or her video clips. The debut charted at quantity 76, but its follow-up, Additional Goose, scrambled in to the Best 40 — the band’s just record to take action. The group experienced an EP out in 1997 aswell, but following its launch, Jake bailed out because of creative variations, resurfacing later on in Super Spirit Sonics and Cloudchair. Guniw Equipment had been left to keep like a duo, that they did for quite some time, releasing two even more studio room albums. They slowed up in 2000, if they released a best-of and announced a two-year break, where the members from the duo had been to focus on side tasks. Those included Insect and Age group of Punk for Asaki and Nookicky, and Shilfee and Tulipcorobockles for Total.
