The end of 2005 marked the beginning of a band called Creature Creature. Conceptualized by Morrie (DEAD END), Creature Creature began as a writing collaboration between three individuals with Morrie on vocals, Tetsu (L’Arc-en-Ciel) on bass and Minoru (THE SPIN, ex. Mad Capsule Markets) on guitar. Their unveiling was at Nippon Budokan in 2005, which was followed up by another live performance at Shibuya-AX, three single releases (Kaze no Tou, Red, and Paradise), and a full album (Light & Lust), all in 2006.
The live at Shibyua-AX showed a new line up; Morrie was still on vocals, Minoru on Guitar, and adding Hiro (Libraian, ex. La’cryma Christi,) on guitar, FIRE on bass, and Shinya (ex. Luna Sea) on drums.
After a two-year silence, Creature Creature recently re-emerged onto the scene with new “monstrous” songs and a different line up brought together by Morrie. The band kicked into gear this summer, June 2009, with the “Simone and the Wrath” (“Simone to Gekirin”) live series; two lives in Tokyo, as well as one in Osaka and Kobe. Band members are Morrie on vocals, the return of Hiro on guitar, HITOKI on bass from ROBO+S (formerly in Kuroyume), Sakura on drums from SONS OF ALL PUSSYS (formerly of ZIGZO) and the youngest of the bunch, Shinobu on guitar (formerly of Guy’s Family).
Just recently, in September 2009, Creature Creature performed three more times as part of their “Simone and the Wrath, Continued” (“Syoku × Simone to Gekirin”) live series. They won’t stop there either; this winter they are going to Shanghai, China for two performances on December 23 and 24. With the renewed energy for Creature Creature, we expect to hear more from them in the future.
