Omega Tribe (Japanese language: オメガトライブ; stylized as ΩMEGA TRIBE), was a Japanese soft rock and city pop project led by roducer [Koichi Fujita that was active thought the 1980's and 1990's.

History

1980 – 1985: Kiyotaka Sugiyama & Omega Tribe

Kiyotaka Sugiyama & Omega Tribe is the first iteration of the band, who were active during 1983 to 1985. The group included vocalist Kiyotaka Sugiyama, guitarist Shinji Takashima, keyboardist Shunji Nishihara, drummer Keiichi Hiroishi, bassist Takao Oshima, and guitarist Kenji "Kenta" Yoshida.[1] The band had a large presence on TV music programs, radio and commercials.[2] Their most well known songs are "Summer Suspicion," "Kimi no Heart wa Marine Blue," and "Futari no Natsu Monogatari."

Conception & name

In 1980, the band Kyutipanchosu, comprised up of Sugiyama, Takashima, keyboardist Akira Senju, and three other members, won the 19th Yamaha Popular Song Contest with the song "Gospel no Yoru."[3][4][5][6] Despite winning the award and receiving an invitation for the event at Tsumagoi Exhibition Hall, Sugiyama was not satisfied with the song, feeling that it was incomplete. He refused the invitation and sought to make his own debut.[7] The band caught the eye of Koichi Fujita, a producer and owner of Triangle Productions, who wanted Sugiyama to have a solo career. He then suggested the band change their name and that he would produce for them. Senju would leave the band after to become a professional, with Shunji Nishihara replacing him.[8] The band would rename themselves "Kiyotaka Sugiyama & Omega Tribe."[9][10][11]

The name was given by Hawaii DJ Kamasami Kong, who wanted to give them something "futuristically primitive" and could "help them lead the way into tomorrow without losing the richness of yesterday."[12] The name was not at the top of their list, as the name "Tykes" was liked by the members, but Fujita chose "Omega Tribe." He liked how "Omega" (Ω, ω) meant last in the Greek alphabet and that "Tribe" meant ethnicity, and interpreted as the "final race" and "the last companion" for the "final people."

Debut and career

In April 1983, the band debuted with the single "Summer Suspicion" instead of the song "Kaifū Tsūshin," as requested by Fujita,[13][14][15] and the single charted at #9 on the Oricon charts.[16] The single was included in their debut album, Aqua City, which released on September 21, 1983.[17][6]

In 1984, the band released River's Island, which included "Asphalt Lady" and "Kimi no Heart wa Marine Blue."

In April, 1985, guitarist Kenji Yoshida left the band. On July 1, 1985, the band released the album Another Summer (album), focusing their sound on synths such as the Polymoog and the Yamaha DX7 while cutting down on the brass sound.[18][19][20] The album earned the band their first #1 spot on the Oricon charts and included the single "Futari no Natsu Monogatari," which was completed in a day and peaked at #5.[21][22]

Dissolution

Fujita had created the project called "Omega Tribe" and placed it under the leadership of composer Tetsuji Hayashi.[23] Since the recordings were performed by professional studio musicians, members of the band were not involved with the making of the recordings, leaving the members of the band frustrated. Because of this frustration, in the middle of 1985, Sugiyama proposed a dissolution of the band at the end of the year. The dissolution was supported by Hiroishi, Oshima, Yoshida and with Takashima and Nishihara opposing the dissolution. The decision to dissolve was unanimous at the end.[14][24][10] The greatest hits album Single's History was planned to be the final album, but at the suggestion of Hayashi, they made another album called First Finale, making it the second and last album to reach the #1 spot on the Oricon charts. The band had started touring during the creation of the album, and did not play any of the songs.

The band formally dissolved on December 24, 1985, thirteen days after the release First Finale. Sugiyama would go on to have a successful solo career,[6] Hiroishi would play for Crazy Ken Band, and Takashima and Nishihara would go on to form 1986 Omega Tribe.

1986 – 1990: 1986 Omega Tribe and Carlos Toshiki & Omega Tribe

1986 Omega Tribe and Carlos Toshiki & Omega Tribe are the second and third iterations of Omega Tribe, who were active between 1986 to 1988 and from 1988 to 1991. Both iterations consisted of vocalist Carlos Toshiki, guitarist Shinji Takashima, and keyboardist Shunji Nishihara. 1986 Omega Tribe included guitarist Mitsuya Kurokawa, but left in March 1988. Carlos Toshiki & Omega Tribe included vocalist Joey McCoy, who joined the group in July 1988. 1986 Omega Tribe's most well known song is "Kimi wa 1000%" while Carlos Toshiki & Omega Tribe's most well known song is "Aquamarine no Mama de Ite."

Formation of 1986 Omega Tribe

After the break up of Kiyotaka Sugiyama & Omega Tribe, Fujita scouted vocalist Carlos Toshiki, a Japanese Brazilians who had debuted in 1982.[25] He decided that Toshiki would make a good candidate for the lead vocalist of Omega Tribe. He brought back Takashima and Nishihara as they did not want the band to break up in 1985. He also brought guitarist Mitsuya Kurokawa, who was in the backing bands of Momoko Kikuchi and Hiromi Iwasaki.[26][11][27]

Debut and career

The band released the single "Kimi wa 1000%" on May 1, 1986, which reached #6 on the Oricon charts. The single was included in their first album, Navigator (1986 Omega Tribe album). They released the single "Super Chance" three months after "Kimi wa 1000%," and was the only song that won the #1 spot for Tokyo Broadcasting System's "The Top Ten" and was used for a Super Fujicolor commercial starring Yoko Minamino.[28] Their second album, Crystal Night (1986 Omega Tribe album)|Crystal Night, was released on February 4, 1987 and reached the #1 spot for the Oricon LP Chart.

Renaming to Carlos Toshiki & Omega Tribe

In March 1988, Kurokawa left the band for health-related reasons, leaving Toshiki, Takashima, and Nishihara as the remaining group members.[29] The band and staff decided to rename the group to "Carlos Toshiki & Omega Tribe," as the "1986" in the name was getting old and that the staff wanted to boost Toshiki's presence.[30]

The band released Down Town Mystery on April 6, 1988. The band released the single "Aquamarine no Mama de Ite" on August 10, 1988, which was used as the theme song for the Fuji TV drama Dakishimetai!.[31][32]

In July 1988, American vocalist Joey McCoy joined the band after participating as a background singer for Down Town Mystery, and the band recorded "Reiko (song)" with McCoy as lead vocalist.

Dissolution

In 1990, the band transferred from VAP (company) to Warner Pioneer, releasing "Toki Wa Kagerō," a song written by Yumi Matsutoya and was included on their final album, Natsuko (album) on June 25, 1990.

On December 14, 1990, the band announced their plans to disband after a final tour on Music Station. After the tour, they officially disbanded with the conclusion of the show on March 16, 1991 at the Nisshin Power Station.

1993 – 1994: Brand New Omega Tribe

Brand New Omega Tribe (shortened as B.N.O.T) was the solo project of vocalist Masahito Arai that was active between 1993 to 1994.[1] Arai was previously the lead singer of the group PAL, who had split due to creative differences, and was scouted by Fujita.[33][34] The solo project was named "Brand New Omega Tribe" because of the production team that included Fujita, Hayashi, Izumi, and Urino. BNOT released two singles, "Aisanakute Īkara" and "Marry Me," in 1993 and 1994, and released one album, Beach Hippies, before splitting.

Offshoot bands

1992: D.O.M.E

D.O.M.E (short for Deconstructed Omega by Mints Entertainment; also known as Omega Tribe D.O.M.E) was an offshoot that was active in 1992.[1] The band included Takashima and Nishihara as well as vocalist and voice actor Satoshi Mikami, bassist Seiichi Sakauchi, and drummer Michihisa Ikeda.[35] D.O.M.E did not achieve the popularity as the previous versions, releasing one single, "Megami Tachi ni Aeru hi," and album, D.O.M.E, before splitting.[36] After the split, Mikami returned to his work as a voice actor while Takashima had started work as a producer and director at Being Inc.

1994 – 1996: Weather Side

Weather Side was another offshoot that was active between 1994 to 1996. The band included Takashima and Nishihara as well as vocalist Hideaki Takatori.[37] They released three albums and three singles before splitting.[1]
