The early Sex Machineguns were located in Kagoshima prefecture and consisted of Anchang on guitar Mad Power on drums and Asada on vocals. Their style at the time was based on loud punk more than metal. The band went through many lineup changes though this period starting when Asada left the band and was replaced by ロボッターImai on Vocals and Pretty Tsumura joined on bass. The lineup changed again when Anchang moved to Tokyo for and employment opportunity, Anchang kept the band going with new members based in Tokyo with Anchang on guitar, Noisy on vocals, サーマス on bass and Takechang on drums. Because the band felt Noisy's vocals were to rough, it was suggested that Anchang should sing. He started vocal lessons, but he did not take it seriously. He was once told to pratice at the Tama river, but instead just fed the pigeons. Anchang sung for a few months but then decided he could not do it. Shortly アトキンスッコン joined on bass but was replaced quickly as サーマス rejoin yet again.
