Cherno's History

Shin Sugawara(Sax.)
Born in 1965 in Yamagata prefecture.

Junichi Kishimoto(Guitar)
Born in 1968 in Fukui prefecture.
He met Sugawara at a club with live music.
At that time,Kishimoto recited accompanying himself,
and Sugawara's band was just like a noise unit.
Althouth this pairing was a little strange.
