guitarist, and Takayuki Enomoto, a former member of Mandog, as a bassist.
in 2004, Miyashita and Enomoto joined Mani
Neumeier's japan tour after they were asked by the promoter of the tour, Captain
Trip Records. after that, Neumeier asked them to play live together again as a
result of performing well while on tour, leading them to form DRUGON. they
performed live at several places including TokyoTower's Wax Museum,
which was popular for its impressive collection of Krautrock waxworks including
Mani Neumeier, himself. in march 2014, during Mani Neumeier's japan
tour, DRUGON resumed being active for the first time in 9 years to prepare for
this first ever release.
