Biography

Formed by Yukio Iwahara in 2000, after leaving the BeatCrusaders in order to pursue his original music.

In the beginning it was a solo project, mainly recording at home influenced by the ?gLo-Fi?h sounds of Sebadoh or Pavement. Current members Fukamizu and Terada joined in 2002 and they started playing regularly at venues such as Shinjuku Loft, Shinjuku Jam, and Shimokitazawa Club Que.
They have since been on stage with Elekibass, The Strikers, and Toru Hidaka at ?gSTRUMMIN?f REVIEW at Shinjuku Loft.

BROKENSPACE also played with KOGARECORDS?f PINK LOOP, and ROCET K at the all night event ?gBUFFALO HUNTING!! vol.3?h. It was an event where they shared the stage with bands from different tastes in music, but BROKENSPACE showed their original clean sound and were received with great response.

Since then, they have actively promoted themselves, for example by their co-produced event ?gIt Won?ft Be Wrong?h with good friends SKYBEAVER. Although it was demo music, they received positive responses from several areas, including interFM, a radio station that mainly plays foreign songs.

All lyrics are in English, but the combination of the sensitivity of the words and its melody strongly appeal each songs existence. The main vocalist is Iwahara, but bassist Fukamizu joins in on some songs and the difference in their character is appealing as well.

?hSympathy?h, a split album with SKYBEAVER was released from THISTIME RECORDS in December, 2003. Although it was a split album, it was in the top rankings at many foreign affiliate CD shops, and can still be listened to in store samples.

April 26, 2006. Full album ?gbrokenspace?h to be released.
