Futoshi Uehara , or better known as Ue-Chan is a Japanise bassist and a current member of the rock-band Maximum The Hormone. Born April the 15th, 1980, he is the youngest member of the crew so far. He came to a band replacing the former bassist “Key”, who left the band in 1999. Futoshi is well known, for his twangy and heavy slapping and popping bass style, that considered to be unique within the nu-metal, as it’s closer to a funk style of playing. Though that this playing can be easily identified in the many of the band songs over the harsh vocals and guitar riffs.
He plays a Sadowsky RV4 and a Modulus FB4 and also sports tattoos that resemble those of his idol, Flea. He very rarely sings, but in some songs such as “Houchou Hasami Cutter Knife Dosu Kiri”, “Kyoukatsu” and “Nigire Tsutsu”, he has provided backup vocals.
