Formed in 1998 in Okinawa, followed by a number of local gigs. Their early demo tape entitled "DASSHOKUZAI" drew attention in and out of Okinawa music scene, which eventually gave the group opportunities to open for bands like IN-HI, JIGOKUGURUMA, BRINGTEETH when they toured Okinawa. In1999, BLEACH contributed one track to Benten Label's compilation album "BENTEN PUNK BENTOU" while participating in other compilation projects - "HIYAKU 2" which featured all the major bands from Okinawa, as well as "OKINAWA CHUUDOKU" released in March 2000 through VAP. The success of such recording and performing activity pushed the group up to the leading girl band from Okinawa. A maxi-single "OTOKO ICCHOKUSEN" was launched in July of the same year through Ripley, a record label of their own. The first full album "KIBAKUZAI" released in November brought the band an overwhelming level of appreciation as well as a national recognition. Their active touring continued, to the Mecca of Rock, CBGB. The band has been brought back to the US in March 2001 on a tour that covers Austin, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles and San Francisco, provoking the BLEACH sensation all over the place.
