Bassist J founded Lunacy with drummer Shinya Yamada in 1989, recruiting Ryuichi Kawamura, Yasuhiro Suighara, and Shinobu Inoue — just the following calendar year did they transformation their name to Luna Ocean.

Desire (2007), which noticeable J’s tenth yr as a single designer, and 2008’s Trip adopted. The six-track Celebrities from your Broken Night time EP was released in ’09 2009.
