The band's first eye-opener into the world of music began with band leader, TA-1, first encountering Hip Hop music. At this time, TA-1 was simply a DJ but soon transformed into a drummer after finding interest in intricate rhythms. During high school TA-1 got together with classmates, Keishi (Vo.) and Hiroshi (Gtr.) and a band was born. Influenced by the ska boom in the late nineties they quickly become a ska-core band and upon moving to Tokyo, met a trumpet player named Honma, who was soon included into the group.
