They released the EP "Cosmo-Sports" and independent album "Super Disco", and in 1994 the "Hoshizora no doraibu" (Starry Sky Drive) and "Cosmic Hippie" EPs.Read More...
Their sound evolved with time, and when Harushige Maruyama joined the band (now a three-piece) they released their first major label mini album,『若者たち』(Wakamonotachi, "Young People"). From their own admission, the album's sound owed much to the Japanese guitar group Flipper's Guitar, of which they were big fans. Their sound was also reminiscent of the folk music revolution, exemplified in the music of late 60s Japanese group はっぴいえんど (Happy End). Sunny Day Service has gained considerable recognition for their acoustic work from this album.
