Their hits include Roman hikou and Kimi ga Iru Dake de.

The band reformed in the middle of 2006 for a series of concerts and a few new recordings including "Welcome 2" which spurred a wonderful video where the bank that depicted the members as toys (complete with UPC bar codes and one, "James" Onoda Yasuhide bursting out of his "box" [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WeIYaBAo3Q Welcome 2 video on Youtube] ). It is a part of Sony Music Japan.

A combined CD/DVD release featured a parody of the "hentai" (aka "racy') videos where the two dancers (Minako and Mari, also known as "Sue Cream Sue") dance to songs of Kome Kome in various states of dress and undress (and strange costumes like animals).
