JUDY AND MARY


1. Artist Profile
JUDY AND MARY is a Japanese multi-genre band was formed in 1991 originally from Hakodate, Hokkaido. Their all members are Yoshihito Onda (恩田 快人), Yuki Isoya (磯谷 有希), Kohta Igarashi (五十嵐 公太), Takuya Asanuma (浅沼 拓也) (1993-2001), and Taiji Fujimoto (藤本 泰司) (1992-1993). According to Onda's opinion, the name of Judy & Mary is the 2 side’s symbol of humanism like Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde (maybe it means the positive & negative side like Yin-Yang). Their fans usually call them JAM.

By bassist Yoshihito Onda and vocalist Yuki Isoya with drummer Kohta Igarasi and guitarist Taiji Fujimoto finished the next year lineup. Then the guitaris Taiji was replaced by Takuya Asanuma in the next year. This band was known as an inovatif band because they're punk, rock, and noisy meldings pop but the music melodies was in 1990s.

In 1992, they released their independent album called Be Ambitious with the video featured on Chainsaw Records. They were under Epic/Sony Records and released their first major single, Power of Love in 1993. Their debut album in the major label was released in 1994 called JAM. With each release, they were growing in the popularity till they became one of the famous bands in Japan. One of their songs, Sobakasu was used as opening theme for famous and popular anime series in the Television called Rurouni Kenshin and sold over 1.000.000 copies.

Their music genre was very interesting for music lovers, especially punk genre. The noisy uproar composition was full of typical noise punk that was combined with the Hard Rock guitar melodic which resulted a unique alloy to be heard. I am not including the punk music lover, but for this one band, I relented to like them. Just listen their example songs like Radio, Kurasikku, and Sanpomichi. Isoya Yuki or commonly called Yuki is the center of unique and typical for Judy and Mary.

Yuki's voice is very distinctive, with the characters similar to kindergarten children which is very cute. You can imagine that noisy Punk music genre combined with the female singer who has a kid voice that must be unique. Never before the music arrangement that managed by Takuya and Onda is fun to be listened. Their performances on the stage are unique where each member is free for the style.

Their music quality normally is punk. But for the sake of boosting their popularity, they want to combine it with pop rhythm which more easy listening. Their LIVE songs were so different from other punk band. They dare to invite Jazz pianist and orchestral music to support Judy & Mary performance. One of the song examples is Sobakasu, it has been changed from normal to the jazz version.
