Powered by Audioscrobbler™Numerous artists have used the name Life, including:

1. LIFE - British Post-Punk band formally known as The Neat. Their debut single "I Wanna Forget" was released on 21st October 2013 via Birthday Records. LIFE are anchored by their hometown, Hull, UK; the geography, history and community has always been the inspiration behind their creativity and on their third LP, North East Coastal Town, released on 19th August 2022, the band paid homage to Hull and its folk.

2. Life - a crasher crust punk band from Japan. LIFE stands for Liberty Independence Freedom Equality. It all started in 1991. That was when we started to make plans for a new band. "Abe-chan" (Bass) and Ishiyama "Aniki"(Drum) joined hands and began attending amateur band presentations to scout around for additional members. It wasn't long before Abe-chan got ahold of the singer Hiro at a Kokubunji Morgana performance, who then became a new member to the band. It was in May of 1991, and it was a moment that signaled to beginning of LiFE. In August of the same year, Hiro introduced Naoya, a guitarist from his home town, to the group as a new member. In December, we pulled off our first live performance at 20000V, in Ko-enji (Tokyo).
Our original tastes in music were quite different than they are now. It was like a mixture of Japanese hard-core sound and crust core sound. 1992 saw the departure of Ishiyama "Aniki" and the induction of Kajiyan, our current drummer. In 1993, our original guitarist Naoya dropped out, and replaced by 〇〇, after which our music was transformed to Scandinavian crust noise core sound. In 1998, our second guitarist dropped out 〇〇. We also went through a phase without a Bassist. For some time, we got by with a fill-in, "Matchan" (from FRIGORA). In 1998 "Maakun" joined the group as a new guitarist. In April of 2008, "Maakun" (guitar) dropped out. While we looked for a new guitarist, "Abe-chan" traded in his bass for a guitar, and we continued on as a band of three without a bassist. In September of 2008, new Bassist "Nori-san" (Screwwithin) replaced. In September of 2009, new twin Guitarist "Taka" replaced.

Our music has changed over time since we first formed a group, but we continue to devote ourselves to the pursuit of ever-changing new music.
