The Bad Spellers Bio

Indie-pop band from Tokyo, Japan consisting of husband/wife duo Tony P. (guitar, vocals) and Yasuko Ichinomiya (keyboards, vocals, toys).

Although officially forming in 2003, the two spent the following 2 years in separate countries, only able to write music together via the internet and on occasional visits. Before "officially" uniting in mid 2005, the band had been featured on a European net-release and 2 compilation discs.

In 2004 The Bad Spellers traveled to Canada to collaborate/record with Justin Langlois of The London Apartments (Universal Records/Beggar's Banquet Records). These sessions were released in March, 2005 to national (USA/Canada) distribution on Florida's Post*Records as "Fall in Love," a split EP with The London Apartments). Tony and Yasuko have since returned to the US and Canada numerous times.

2007 saw the release of their first album, "Keep on Shining!", on Post*Records as well as the band's official legal marriage.

The duo has since relocated to the United States, and spends time touring or recording whenever possible.

According to the band' official website (thebadspellers.com) was shut down "To honor those suffering from The Great World-Wide Financial Crisis of 2008." However, the band maintains internet correspondence through a variety of social networking websites.
