The Oranges, from Tokyo, Japan, formed in 1997. A couple of years earlier, business lead vocalist/guitarist Jeff Orange got made a decision to name his next music group following the Anthony Burgess book Clockwork Orange (as well as the motion picture aimed by Stanley Kubrick). The irony from the moniker, obviously, is that rather than being truly a dark, violent-themed hard rock and roll act — remember the topic matter from the film/publication — the Oranges play glam and bubblegum pop music that is clearly a immediate throwback to rings and artists from the ’70s; the Bay Town Rollers, Suzi Quatro, and Kiss are simply some of their biggest affects, not forgetting the Beatles, the Monkees, and Japanese GS (a mixture of traditional Japanese pop music and Western specifications through the 1960s). By enough time they’d shaped, the people — Jeff Orange, bassist Robin Orange, guitarist/vocalist Nelo Orange, and drummer Pea Orange — had been all seasoned veterans. Jeff Orange’s last music group, a Japanese power pop Who-influenced music group known as the Shamrocks, got released six albums and 11 EPs (on two different record brands, Epic/Sony and Pony Canyon) in Japan, actually; and bassist Robin was a previous person in Kusu Kusu, who have been big plenty of of an organization that they sold-out the Budokan Hall. The Oranges documented a seven-song EP, Balloon, for Glam Rock and roll Information, before issuing two EPs and two full-length albums for Rabbit Information in 1999-2000. Later on, they found the attention from the recently shaped Smile Information, a pop label shaped in L.A. by Tony Valenziano (from the Stand). For his or her American debut, Smile — which is definitely distributed by Picture Entertainment, among the leading marketers of video clips/Dvd disks — re-released the Oranges’ Adolescent Right now! USA on June 25, 2002.
