2) Fiction (Japanese): Originally formed in Nagoya, they were called Gille’ Loves. After struggling almost for a decade to gain recognition, they moved to Tokyo and changed their name to Fiction. The reason for the name change is said to be because many fans took the dark gothic but sensual world created through their music too seriously. In response, the band claimed that everything is just ‘fiction’. Fiction was largely influenced by numerous 80s new wave British bands such as Bauhaus and Joy Division. All of their records (whether on CDs, cassette tapes, or VHS videos) are of very low production value, reflecting the lack of budget and the struggles the band went through in order to produce them. Despite this, Fiction has created a very raw, emotional and sensual sound that defines them from other goth rock music.
After Fiction disbanded. Vocalist, Lucifer Luscious Violenoue continued to pursue a solo career. Gardie joined Lipstick Killers, but nothing further is known about Sylvian Ashworrth.
