Biography

Aomori, Japan (1995 – 2005)

Supercar (スーパーカー, Sûpâ Kâ) was a Japanese rock band active from 1995 to 2005, and who made their debut in 1997. Consisting of songwriter and vocalist Kōji Nakamura (中村弘二 Nakamura Kōji), guitarist Junji Ishiwatari (いしわたり淳治 Ishiwatari Junji), bassist Miki Furukawa (フルカワミキ Furukawa Miki), and drummer Kōdai Tazawa (田沢公大 Tazawa Kōdai), Supercar is best known for combining with music.

Part of SUPERCAR’s aesthetic success stems from their “ordinary country-grown” roots in the Aomori prefecture, far north from the constant clamor of Tokyo. It was here that the youthful band first took shape. Supercar was formed in 1995 when bassist Miki Furukawa placed an advertisement in a local magazine seeking fellow musicians. Junji Ishiwatari responded and convinced childhood friend Kōji Nakamura to join as well. Junji and Kōji soon recruited drummer Kōdai Tazawa, an acquaintance from middle school. After writing songs and recording demo tapes, they received a record contract. In 1997 they released their debut album, Three Out Change, and their second album, Jump Up, in 1999. This album was followed by Ooyeah and Ookeah, both also released in 1999. With the 2000 album Futurama, electronic experimentation took a larger role that would characterize the band’s sound for the rest of their career.

    I'm not an electronic fan at all, but I must confess that Highvision and Answer are really good albums!
