JUDY AND MARY were a Japanese multi-genre band known for their innovative punk, rock, and pop meldings of noisy but melodic music in the 1990's. They formed in 1992 when bassist Yoshihito Onda (jp: 恩田快人) met vocalist Yuki Isoya (磯谷有希) in Hakodate, Hokkaido. Much later drummer Kohta Igarashi(五十嵐公太) and guitarist Takuya Asanuma (浅沼拓也) were added to round out the group. In 1992 they released their first indie album, Be Ambitious, with an accompanying video on Chainsaw Records. They were picked up by Epic/Sony Records and released their first major label single, Power of Love in 1993.
