ONC was formed in 2002 as a five-piece hardcore band by the only remaining current member Brownhiro. In 2004, after excessive drinking bouts at Ebisu’s Milk and Shibuya’s Gig-antic, two members left the band and ONC became a three piece band playing mainly punk rock with the occasional ska or reggae beat thrown in. In 2007 they released their first demo, Sounds Like Shit, with bassist Chie-zo. In 2008, bassist Takeshit replaced Chie-zo, and they started the popular “PORK CHOP” event in Shibuya’s Crawl Club. The band’s current lineup took shape in 2009, when bassist Kaz and drummer Youngman joined the band. In 2010 they secured sponsorships to hold the events “Subai” and “Beers Rain”, releasing a split CD Shindou with Sun and touring Taiwan with Tokyo’s Kissaco. In 2011, ONC established the independent label “ONIGIRI RECORDS”, after which they toured Taiwan and played at the Spring Scream Festival with Pororocks, Shuhari, and Half Mile Radius. Their first single “Beers Rain” was released in May of 2011. ONC is touring Asia in July of 2011 with Shuhari and Half Mile Radius, with shows planned in Shanghai, Beijing, and Tokyo.
Tokyo's Shuhari creates instrumental melodies that are simultaneously ambient and energetic, transcending the traditional limits of post-rock. Shuhari was originally formed by guitarist Kohei and drummer Kotaro in 2008, and bassist Kodai joined soon after in 2009. When they were looking for an additional guitar player, they met Taichi, who produced sounds on the guitar that closely matched the direction they hoped to go in. In 2009, they started the "Tsuruginomai" music festival, and in 2010 they recorded their first independent, self-titled CD, Shuhari. Taichi decided to leave the band in 2011 in order to pursue a different career. Shortly after, in 2011, Shuhari went on their first tour of Taiwan, playing at the Spring Scream festival in Kenting. In the summer of 2011, they are scheduled to play shows in Beijing along with Tokyo's ONC and Half Mile Radius from Taiwan, and they hope to continue traveling and playing music overseas in the future.

Half Mile Radius
2009年， HMR錄製了他們的第一張CD，並在2009年4月13日被Jango全球網路電台選為當週之Top 5。 2010年開始，為了探索更加有趣的Grooving與未知的音色曲調，HMR開始在音樂上做不同的時拍點變換與大量的樂曲段落解構實驗嘗試。只為了得到 那更不可預期的有趣,更深切的錯雜情感。
經過了2010年12月的日本巡迴演唱，以及2011年4 月與ONC，POROROCKS ，Shuhari 的台灣巡迴後，眾多靈感使得他們開始籌備2011下半年的亞洲巡迴(Shanghai，Beijing and Tokyo in July of 2011)。 此外，2011年夏天，HMR也積極的準備第一張專輯 “Triage” 的錄製。預計將會在9月正式發行。更多訊息，圖，downloads,和商品，在我們的官方網站︰ www.halfmileradius.net
