Our website is written basically in Japanese,
but I want you to know our music.
Bran was formed in Tokyo
back in 1994.
Some drummered had played. They have gigs mainly at clubs in
central Tokyo area.
They are groping for the music with madness,
introversion, violence, delicateness and coting extremely private
lyrics with their sound including quietness and motion.
Their first recording was for the compilation album "Abunai
Ongaku" (dangerous music) from Osaka indie label "Gyuune
Cassette"in 1998 and the band also have a couple of gigs
in Osaka every year since then.
Also, Adachi established his own private label
"Tonsei Record". He is running the lablel's offifcial
Web site "The world of Tonsei Record" ( http://www.tonreco.com
) to distribute original CD-R, cassettes, songs in realplayer
format, lyrics, band info and gig schedule.

(means Tender Dream) released from Gyuune Casette on July 25,
Their second album "Akogare to Gensou"(means
yearning and fantasy)released from

*Review from "METROPOLIS"no.388
To anyone who has sampled the Tokyo indie-rock underground,
the topsy-turvy world of Bran will be familiar. But to those
who haven’t, the slightly disturbed sounds of this three-piece
who create “music with madness, introversion, violence, delicateness…
and extremely private lyrics including quietness and motion,”
could be a surprise. Formed in 1994 by Adachi (guitars, vocals)
and Meg (bass) with Kuri on drums, Bran’s debut full-length
Yawarakana Yume (“Tender Dream”) looks to the ’60s acid rock
of the Doors and Jimi Hendrix for inspiration. “Yume Utsutsu”
is a greasy outing of psychedelic blues, while the tortured
guitar skronk of “Jibaku” (“Suicide Bomber”) well reflects the
content of the song.
