In November 1967,The Mops (モップス) debuted as the “The First Psychedelic band in Japan” and they released their first single “Asamade Matenai”. In April 1968 they released their first album called “Psychedelic Sound In Japan”. It contains both covers and their own songs.
In 1969, Bassist Murakami quit the band, and Miyuki switched to bass from guitar. At this time psychadelic music died out and The Mops switched to playing hard rock. They released 13 singles and 8 albums until they disbanded in May 1974.
