.:: ムック (MUCC) is a japanese rockband formed in Ibaraki, Japan in 1997. The band has four members, 逹瑯 (Tatsurou Iwakami, vocals), ミヤ (Masaaki Yaguchi, guitar), YUKKE (Yusuke Fukuno, bass) and SATOち (Satoshi Takayasu, drums). In 1997, ex-member Hiro was the bassist, replaced by YUKKE in 1999.
The band’s name, decided upon by guitarist ミヤ, was originally the name of a character from a Japanese children’s program “Ponkickies”. The band is also known as “six-nine” from a play on words, since six-nine can be pronounced “muku” (六九) in Japanese. June 9th (6/9) is also known as “MUCC day” by their fans.
In 2000, the band had their first interview in the monthly publication FOOL’S MATE, issue 221. TATTOO (on vocals) changed his name to Tatsurou, and the band’s name MUCC was changed to ムック (pronounced MUKKU). On 6/9, (“MUCC day”) they released their first CD single “娼婦/廃” (Shoufu/Hai) and a second press of their album “アンティーク” (Antiiku). last fm
