I got a call from a record company when I jumped in and participated in the concert. Formed “Downtown Bugiugi Band” in 1973. Debuted with the single “Unknowingly”. This band name came up in 1972 the previous year, but when I proposed it to the band at that time, it was the trigger for the dissolution.
“Smokin Bugi” in 1974 was a big hit nationwide. It was noted for the difference between the white jumpsuit look and the rock’n’roll tune that emphasizes the comical and coolness of the phrase. In addition, the B-side song “Minato no Yoko Yokohama Yokosuka” of the next year’s single “Kakkoman Bugi” was also a hit, and the line “What’s that girl like you” in the song became a popular word, and based on this song A movie was also made in. Furthermore, the song “Don’t touch the product” became a hot topic on the radio.
Carol and connection
“Carol” and “Downtown Bugiugi Band” led by Eikichi Yazawa had different debut times, and Carol was a senior. This difference in debut time bothered Uzaki. Uzaki et al. Also wore leather jean at first, but when Carol was put on the market in a big way, criticisms continued to be “imitation of Carol”, and it was unavoidable to look for something that was not leather jean and went to “Tsunagi”. “Carroll” disbanded brilliantly at the timing of “Minato No Yoko Yokohama Yokosuka”. “Eikichi Yazawa always felt like he was going first,” he said. Uzaki and Yazawa are said to have seen each other as hostile rivals.
After that, “Okinawa Bay Blues” was announced. From around 1976, there were no hits, and his activities as a composer of popular songs became conspicuous. She made Momoe Yamaguchi a hit by providing many songs such as “Yokosuka Story,” “Playback Part 2,” “Imitation Gold,” “Rock’n Roll Widow,” “Singing Supplely,” and “The Other Side of Goodbye,” and her heyday.
