The Roosters are a Japanese Great rock band formed in Fukuoka Prefecture in 1979. Their music has mixed rock and roll, punk rock, British blues, ska, and new wave.
“DIS.” is the fourth album by the Roosters, released on October 21, 1983.
On this album, the Roosters used a lot of delay guitars and keyboards.
As a result, the Roosters changed from an early beat band to a new wave band like U2 or Echo & the Bunnymen.
The album cover only shows Shinya Oe (vocals, guitar), Hiroyuki Hanada (guitar), and Tomio Inoue (bass).
However, seven people were involved in the creation of this album.
Because during the making of the album, Junji Ikenohata, the drummer, left the band and was replaced by Masayuki Nadatomo.
Jun Shimoyama (guitar) and Koichi Ando (keyboards) joined the band.
