One of the most interesting alternative rock bands in visual kei, and by far one of the most underrated. I remember discovering these guys while I was scouring WinMX in late 2002 or so and falling completely in love.

Memorable riffs from タイト(who's known now as ケッチ in KYOKUTOU GIRL FRIEND) on guitar, fantastically unique, quirky and somewhat seductive vocals from singer シャカ(now in Miss Jelly Fish, and Acmahead before that) and you also have ティル from lab./LAB. THE BASEMENT on bass. He co-wrote one of the CD's best tracks(symbol) with シャカ. This CD was, unfortunately, the only thing they released that ever had more than 3 tracks.

One of my favorite indie visual kei albums and bands.

Bought from a vk merch seller.
