The Raydios

The Raydios

Japanese garage power pop punk band from Tokyo formed around 1997 by Fink and Sammy after the breakup of Teengenerate, featuring Aoki and Yoda (The Havenot’s); The Raydios made their debut opening for the Misfits. Aoki quit and Fifi joined the band for about four gigs and then The Raydios broke up. During this time the band also recorded some material, later released on the "My Baby's Back" EP (Target Earth Records, 1998) and on the LP "Original Demo Recordings" (1999) edited by the German label Screaming Apple.
Fink, Fifi and Sammy later formed Firestarter.
Around 2007 Fink quit Firestarter and reformed The Raydios, with Azumi (ex-The Young Ones) and Kashima (Rockbottom).
After a 7" for the American label Three Dimensional Records and the Album "Now" in 2008 (Mangrove, cd only, released on vinyl by Dirtnap Records from Portland, USA one year later), Sawa of The Faceful joined the band.
Around 2011 Kashima was replaced initially by Kaz (Kill Times) and later by Suzuki (another ex-Young Ones) in 2012.
