Number Girl

"Number Girl" (ナンバーガール) is a rock band that was formed in Fukuoka, Japan in August, 1995 by Shutoku Mukai. They disbanded in 2002.

Arguably the biggest name in Japanese indie-rock, Number Girl played fast, guitar-driven rock influenced primarily by the Pixies. Their sound gradually evolved, and their later records became more experimental in nature, serving as a basis for Mukai's post-Number Girl project, the Zazen Boys.

The band was formed in August of 1995, when Shutoku Mukai decided to put together a band for an upcoming event. Recruiting a guitarist, bassist, and drummer, Mukai created the basis for his new band. A solo artist at the time, Mukai had one particular unit called the "Number Five". Learning that his new members were previously in a band called "Cowgirl", it was decided that the two names would be merged, and so Mukai christened his new band, "Number Girl".

After numerous line-up changes, with the final line-up consisting of Hisako Tabuchi on guitar, Kentarou Nakao on bass, and Ahito Inazawa on drums, the band released their first full-length studio album, School Girl Bye Bye in November of 1997 on an independent label.
