Nakanomori Band consists of five members, though focuses heavily on (and is named after) the main guitarist and vocalist Nakanomori Ayako. She was originally awarded the runner up prize for the Starlight Auditions in 2000 out of 1,000 entrants (The winner of this competition was the vocalist for the popular band w-inds., Tachibana Keita.)
The band's first two singles, Raspberry Pie and Whatever (used as the opening act for Odaiba Gakuen's Culture Festival on April 29, 2005), both charted around the #37 position on Oricon charts. However, in October of 2005 there was a member line-up change as the second guitarist Tomoe decided that she would leave the band so she could focus on entering university.
This was followed up a month later with the band releasing their more successful single Oh My Darlin' (it reached #22 on the charts), then two months later releasing their similarly titled debut album, OH MY DARLIN' ~Girls having Fun~. Suprisingly, despite the low sales for the band's singles, the album reached a position of #9 on Oricon charts. Read more on Last.fm.
