"THE SEATBELTS" - led by the sound
producer Y.K.- are a very hot & COOL & anarchy &
peace & hard & soft & potato-like band. In 2048,
immediately, they got famous in The Solar System Music Scene. It
is said that the name of them came from their unique style of
performance - all members wear the seatbelts for safety while
they are playing. The members of "THE SEATBELTS" have
the extraordinarily diverse styles of music, which gives a wide
variety to their own sound. However, personal information about
them has been completely concealed. Producer Y.K. likes to refer
to the standard tunes which many "SPACE - JAZZMEN" in
GANYMEDE use as bases for improvisation as "THE TRADITIONAL
GLOBAL FORM". That Y.K. is the leading interpreters of this
form is a fact which Y.K. has proven since she first attained
prominence on The Solar System Music Scene. These recordings of
their First Album "COWBOY BEBOP" are from what could be
called Seatbelt's "A bar of sweet-potato paste period"
I don't know what the name of this period really means.
"Tank!", the first tune in this Album, was ranked #1 in
"The Solar System Music Hit Chart" in 2056. This tune
really established Y.K as a stylist and also as a great sound
producer as well.
During late Fourties and early Fifties, "THE SEATBELTS" traveled around the planets for concerts named "Digging my POTATO tour". Recently, I came across an interview with Y.K. "We really enjoyed playing in large audience. We could stay safe during our play, because we all wore SEATBELTS, as you know. Then we got relaxed and it was fun." She continued with laughter, "There was only one thing we couldn't enjoy on this tour ... That's sea-rats meat in GANYMEDE." She is planning to release new album named"Vitaminless","COWBOY BEBOP-NO DISK" in future. I'm really looking forward to listening to her New Works soon.
