condor44 is a japanese post-rock–influenced indie rock band currently signed by Daizawa Records. The band was formed in 1999 by guitarist/vocalist Hiroshi Sasaki and drummer Nobuyuki Ajima who met while attending college. They began experimenting that summer as a twosome. September of that year, Chikako Ishida was added to the line-up on bass, rounding out the trio. They gigged around Tokyo before recording their first demo in 2000.
