Later that year at a ZIP-FM sponsored event, Ketchup mania was the opening act for bands such as Love Psychdelico, CYMBALS, and Ereki Hachimachi. The following year their first mini-album was released on Twister Records. FANFAN left the band in December 2001, and Dai followed in April 2002 (he has since rejoined). Despite these losses, in December of 2002 Ketchup mania was voted #1 on the music program BREAK GATE. They released their next mini-album on Groovie Drunker, a sublabel of KOGA record, in 2003, and the next year released another mini-album on the sublabel. In 2005 Ketchup mania moved to Tokyo, and bassist Yosei joined.
After a third mini-album on Groovie Drunker in July 2005, the band was signed to Universal Music and released their first major single in December. They were given their first full-length album in February 2006. In 2009, they announced that they were disbanding. Read more on Last.fm.
