In 1991, four young girls gathered to start the band Noodles, performing their first shows in Yokohama.
In 1995, they released their debut album “JYURYOKU DOROBO” on the Benten Label.
That same year, the girls wrote and recorded a song for a Coca-Cola commercial.
The song became a big hit and was a radio favorite throughout Japan.
In 1999, the band moved to DELICIOUS LABEL, the new label run by rocker Yamanaka Sawao of The Pillows.
Noodles began to focus their efforts on recording and playing shows. Over the next couple years, the girls toured Japan six times, building a legion of loyal fans.
In March, 2003, they opened for their heroes, The Breeders, in Osaka.
Later that year, Noodles started to branch out overseas by performing at the CMJ Music Marathon.
They have since been back to the States for two US tours and have appeared at SXSW two years in a row.
Their most recent US tour, in spring 2005, was as the opening act on the very successful DELICIOUS BUMP TOUR with anime champions, The Pillows.
Now, Noodles returns to the US for the Electric Finish Tour with Seattle’s The Stereo Future.
Even with the 2004 loss of their second guitarist, Junko, the girls show no sign of slowing down.
In fact, their songwriting has never been better and their fan base, both in Japan and in the States, just keeps on growing.
Noodles remain Japan’s best all-girl rock ensemble.
