TM NETWORK is a Japanese Pop or J-Rock band consisting of Tetsuya Komuro (Keyboardist), Takashi Utsunomiya (Vocalist) and Naoto Kine (Guitarist).
They were originally members of a band called Speedway during their school days. The three of them formed TM NETWORK . Their name is commonly thought to stand for “Time Machine Network”. However, on September 6th 2006 on an episode of Trivia no Izumi claimed that TM actually stands for ‘Tama’, the district from Tokyo they all came from. While Trivia no Izumi claims that TM stands for ‘Tama’ Tetsuya Komuro himself as early as 1984 on the show LiveG, has said that the TM stands for Time Machine.
Several musicians have supported them at their live shows as backing bands such as Tak Matsumoto (B’z), Daisuke Asakura (access), and more.
They changed their name to TMN in 1990, and broke up in 1994. They had reunited under their old name of TM NETWORK in 1999.
They compiled with the overseas musicians such as Julio Iglesias Jr., Sheila E, Lee-Hom Wang for “Happiness×3 Loneliness×3”.
