T.M.Revolution means "Takanori Makes Revolution". People who see this name for the first time, they may think this is a group name. But he is a single singer. His real name is 'Takanori Nishikawa'. He is very short and slim. So he is very cute as if he were a girl. In contrast to his looks he has a strong voice. And he is good at talking. He is interesting as much as comedians. I think this is one of the causes of his popularity. Using this talent, he has a regular radio program 'All Night Nippon' every Friday night from 1:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m.

His producer is "Daisuke Asakura". He was a member of 'access'. Before he has not made his debut as "T.M.Revolution", he helped his producer as a guest vocalist in some LIVEs. On May 13, 1996 he made his singing debut with the song 'Dokusai-monopolize-'.Gradually his popularity has been increasing. Then his third album "triple joker" was released 1998, January. This is very popular and has been sold more than one million. From July 26, 1998 he started the tour "T.M.R Live Revolution 98 - Joker Type 2-". The tickets were sold out immediately. Then he visited 47 prefectures about for five months.

He thinks T.M Revolution is not a group name but a general name of everybody who are many staffs and fans and supporting his music activities.
