Guniw Tools formed in 1989 as a creative outlet for vocalist and artist Tomo “Full” Furukawa who wanted to incorporate art and music. The band includes Full on vocals as well as Jake and Asaki on guitar. Jake who joined the band in 1992 was the main composer of Guniw Tools. After Jake left the band Asaki played a more prominent role in Guniw Tools. The band has a wide variety of musical sounds and visual aspects that can certainly fit into the realm of visual kei but however do not have your typical visual kei image.
“Fancy Pink” was released in October of 1999 so as to celebrate its anniversary we here on HVK would like to share the song and this band with all of you.
The band disbanded in 2000. However, in November Full’s project SHILFEE AND TULIPCOROBOCKLES is teaming up with Asaki’s band AGE of PUNK for a live in Sapporo, the birthplace of Guniw Tools.
