:: introduction ::
BUCK-TICK is a visual band with long history. BUCK-TICK, which means
"fire-cracker", was formed in late 1985. The members are Atsushi, Hisashi, Hidehiko (Hide),
Yutaka (U-Ta) and Toll. They are famous but not as popular as some bands emerged out around
the same days as them, probably their music style is not so poppish. They do have some
pop stuff, as in their latest album "ONE LIFE, ONE DEATH". The members said they intend to
make this album "a book which will be placed in the very front part of a bookstore instead
of high on a shelf somewhere deep inside the bookstore".
