Their vocalist is フライパン (Furaipan, Frypan) was also known as 605, 605.com and 605±2 and he calls himself the pierrot of the band instead of the vocalist.
He's known their later drummer Izumi for a long time: they used to play sport on the same team when they were in school. Originally he wanted to play guitar, but learned bass because he was unskilled at guitar. His first band was a little cover band called Gesshoku, where he played bass. Then he went on to be a Poisonous Doll roadie (along with Izumi) and then stopped to play in a band called SAT along with Tomo, before finally starting the Pumpkin Head.
Random facts: He really likes Chage & Aska and said he keeps all the letters his fans send him.
The guitarists are トモ (Tomo) & Rui.
Tomo used to be in a band called SAT under the name Tom. He has two dogs, Lucky & Spanky.
Rui's favorite movie is ET and he used to be in a band called Kurea.
The bassist is ロキ (Roki).
The first CD he ever bought is GLAY's review and he listed it as his #1 treasure. He used to be in a band called Dios=Kuroi.
The drummer is いずみ (Izumi).
As mentioned, he & Frypan have been friends for ages and in almost every band together. However, when Frypan was in SAT, Izumi was in CRUEL.
He has a dog named Mimii and he's a big fan of Kuroyume. He also treasures his Poisonous Doll demotapes because he was probably a roadie around the time they released them.
