Members

The members of Buck-Tick came together in 1983 and decided to form a band. They started playing in 1984 and have maintained a consistent lineup since 1985. The band decided that their first vocalist did not fit and the drummer took over vocal duties. They then recruited the bassist's older brother to become their drummer. Buck-Tick made their indie label debut in 1986 and their major label debut in 1987. The band has switched labels over the years but consistently release new albums and tour every 1-2 years. Thus far, they have no desire to retire nor change members.
