A virtual cartoon band
A four-member unit:, formed by ぽおるすみす(Vo), CANDY MAN(Gt), Kunithe ripper(Ba), TOY BOY(Dr).

The band suddenly appeared with the concept:
“A story about an adventure of the band, who are the main characters of an animated movie.
They jumped out of the screen of an old movie theater on the eve of closing.
They used to play at circus and once dominated the world… “

Being called as “Japanese-made Gorillaz”, they became a hot topic.
The strong “street” sounds with a blend of hip-hop, rock and electronic have stolen the audiences' hearts
and won't give them back
