In 1990, a three member band,
"The Storm Riders" was formed under the leadership of Tatsuya. The musical
style of the band was Rockabilly and the band changed its name to "The Starlite
Wranglers" in 1993 after changing its members several times in order to pursue
the Psychobilly in their own interpretation (their own style of Rockabilly
without any limitations and restrictions.).
At the time when the band was renamed, the band members were Tatsuya (G.&
Vo.), Ishii (Wb.) and Ozawa (Dr.).The name of the band which may remind you
of 50's Rockabilly and Hillbilly music contains the band's theme, "No matter
how much the sound of our music advances, we will never forget the core of
our music, Rockabilly." The phrase always disciplines the band members that
they will never change the core of their music, Rockabilly in their musical
style. The name of the band is indirectly related to Elvis Presley in a sense.
In 1994, Ishii left the band and Futoshi joined. The band energetically held
live performances mainly in Tokyo and Yokohama areas in Japan.
In June 1999, the band joined the compilation album "Friday Nite Rumble! Vol.3"
with one of their pieces. The compilation album was released from Run Wild
Records in the United states. In September 2001, the band released their 1st
album, "Whisper of the Devil", which turned out to be the first album with
a solo sound source from a Japanese band, from Crazy Love Records in Germany.
