In September of 2000 they recorded and self-released their first demo on tape format. Between 2001 and 2002 they solidified the line-up, adding Tamao Kamiya (vocals/tambourine), and Yuki Tanaka (vocals/guitar). In December of 2002 they were included on Tokyo’s Ku Records’ “My Notebook is Full of Scribbles” compilation. Then in the Spring of 2003, they recorded their first EP, entitled “The Absent Trail of An Echo and My Future Plagued by Surrender”. Nashville, TN’s I’ve Come For Your Children decided to release the vinyl version. In September of 2003, Yuichi Kasanuma (vocalist/bassist) released the EP on CD from his label, Endless/Nameless Records. In December, I’ve Come For Your Children released the 12” version in America. The first week of December, Gauge Means Nothing toured Malaysia and Singapore with two other Japanese bands, tiala and Cohol. They followed up with a short tour of Japan. In December 2004, the band toured Japan for 9 days with My Precious from Singapore, and Endless/Nameless Records released the split CD with My Precious, entitled “Missing Tom Split CDEP” for their Japan tour.
