The band with the uniform
Did you notice the uniform the band used, white trousers, red jacket and white hat?
It was a replica of Japan team's uniform in 1964 Summer Olympics Tokyo. The band used it in the period of their debut, late 1979 to early 1980.
It was Chikada Haruo's idea. As the producer of the band, he made every effort for getting them exposed in media and the uniform was part of it. Although it was only time they used uniform, it worked well and certainly helped the recognition of the band.
