Biography

Takasaki, Gunma, Japan (1981 – 1988)

BOØWY (ボウイ , pron: bóui) was a famous Japanese band formed in Takasaki, Gunma, Japan in 1981.
Band consists of 氷室京介 (vocals), 布袋寅泰 (guitar), 松井常松 (bass) and 高橋まこと (drums).
They are a rock band that reached legendary status in Japan during the 80s. Their style of play varied from punk to pop rock and they had fans of all ages. The 90s band movement was credited to Boøwy as they popularized the formation of musical groups, which caused musical instrument sales to hit an all-time high during the 90s and the record companies signed and debuted 80 bands during the 90s in hopes of finding a new Boøwy.

The group disbanded in 1988.
