Biography

In 2001 vocalist ゲイリー・ビッチェ (Gary Bitch) decided to form a band called モーモールルギャバン (MOW MOW LULU GYABAN). This was the first time he worked together with bass-player T-マルガリータ (T-Margarita). They found their drummer in 野口康史 (Yasushi Noguchi). It wasn't a very succesfull band at that time, and they disbanded after nearly 6 months. However, Gary Bitch wanted to pursue his dream. In 2002 he formed the brass-band アフロ商会 (Afro Firm). It was during this time he met up with keyboard-player ポック・ユコ (Pock-Yuko), who started out as a support member, but became a regular member after a few months.

It wasn't untill 2005 that T-Margarita proposed to Gary Bitch to continue with their 2001-project, MOW MOW LULU Gyaban. In April they decided to form the band, and asked Pock-Yuko to also join in this reinstallment. Two other members were also joined at the start of the band, but both their guitarist stone and drummer たこちゃん (Tako-chan) resigned by the end of the year to respectively go to college and pursue a business career. They found a replacement early 2006 in guitar-player ホワイト (White) and Gary Bitch also started to drum alongside being the main-vocalist. 

In 2007 the band released it's first single ユキちゃん (Yuki-chan), shortly before White was replaced by ズーミー (Zumi). It was a short period for Zumi, as he also left the band by the end of the year. Back to a three-man guitarless band, the band decided to stay that way as they liked the sound they created as a trio. It all turned out for the better, and they released a new album サイケな恋人 (Lover Psychedelic) in the summer of 2008. The audience started to notice the band and they won MUSIC CHALLENGE 2008, a contest by radio-station FM802 in early 2009.

After releasing 2 mini-albums, they released a full album by the end of 2009, クロなら結構です (Noguchi, kutsukawa de bakushi), and shortly after they got signed by the indie label of Victor Music, In that one year being signed on the indie-branch of that label, they released a new album, toured shortly through Europe, and became quite big, so becoming major was only natural to come next. In early 2012 they signed on the major branch of Victor Music and released their third album BeVeci Calopueno.

On December 31 2013, the band announced to go on an indefinite hiatus starting May 2014.
