It started back in the early 1990s with Just Like Alice, raw pop songs being belted out in the pubs of North East England - chunky guitars, manic violin and glorious trumpet. Then, after a few comings and goings and a name change it was Tickety-Boo - 'sweet, not sickly boy girl vocals', more violin and a highly regarded EP. Then came the court case when Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber and his publishers took exception to the Ticketys dropping a snatch of one of his most famous tunes into their anthemic 'Cantona'.
Perfume is the name of at least two bands. Perfume is a three person j-pop/electro-pop group from Hiroshima who debuted locally in 2001 and nationally in 2005. In 2001, three 11-12 year old girls from an Artist School formed a group together in their hometown of Hiroshima. Consisting of Ayano Ōmoto (Nocchi), Yuka Kashino (Kashiyuka), and Ayaka Nishiwaki (A-Chan). Because all three members had the Japanese character (香) for fragrance in their names, they named the group Perfume. In 2002, they released two limited edition singles only in Hiroshima, called “OMAJINAI★ペロリ” and “彼氏募集中”.
