History[edit]

2002–2005: Pre-debut activities[edit]

In 2002, the two Nitipaisalkul brothers were auditioned into the 1st generation of G-Junior, a training project by GMM Grammy, Thailand's largest entertainment company. As trainees, Golf & Mike were practiced in singing, dancing, acting, and language and they were made appearing in many GMM Grammy concerts. Golf & Mike along with other G-Juniors joined J-Asean Pops Concert 2003 (October 10) in which the concert featured Johnny's Entertainment artists, Hideaki Takizawa, Jimmy, KAT-TUN, Ya-Ya-Yah, A.B.C, & Five.[1] The G-Juniors also performed consecutively at Pattaya Music Festival in 2003 & 2004 (all featured Johnny's artists). From these concerts, Golf, Mike and other G-Juniors were spotted by Johnny's crews and later were invited to join the Thai-J Pop Concert in 2004 (Tackey & Tsubasa, KAT-TUN & A.B.C).

In 2004, Golf & Mike issued their first Thai concert performance as an opening act to Bird Thongchai McIntyre's For Fan Fun Fair Concert. The two boys with B-boy dancing at the middle of the stage started to gain their own fanclub. At the end of 2004, Golf & Mike were invited to join NEWS concert at Tokyo International Forum as special guests and early 2005 they were invited again in Ya-Ya-Yah concert in 2005. Golf & Mike performed "Epilogue" at these concerts and were called Thai Junior by Japanese press at the time.

2005: Debut[edit]

It took 4 years before the Nitipaisalkul brothers finally debuted as Golf-Mike[2] in October 2005 with their self-titled album, Golf-Mike. Dance-pop track "Bounce" was chosen to be the album's first promotional single, and it became a big hit in Thailand. The other tracks, "Ruang Lek Kaung Tur", "Ta Lok Dee", "Yah Len Bab Nee," and "Epilogue" were also widely accepted in the industry. Noted that "Epilogue", a cover of Tackey & Tsubasa hits, was given as a present from Johnny Kitagawa for their debut album.

Golf & Mike's first album became a blast in the Thai music industry as theirs first nomination was the Most Popular Artist for the Year award for the Seed Awards 2006, which they also won in February 2006. In March, they were able to hold their first solo concert, Golf-Mike Let's Bounce Concert at Thunder Dome with an audience of 5,000 people.

2006: Special units in Japan & Thailand[edit]

In June 2006, Golf & Mike was awarded Best Breakthrough Artist from the Channel [V] Thailand Music Video Awards 2006. Later that month, they showed up in Japan forming Johnny's Entertainment's first ever international unit, Kitty GYM[3] along with popular J-pop figure, Tomohisa Yamashita. "GYM", stands for Golf, Yamashita and Mike, respectively with "Kitty" standing for the 4 Johnny's Jrs, Hiromitsu Kitayama (Kis-my-ft2), Kei Inoo (J.J. Express, later Hey! Say! JUMP), Shota Totsuka (A.B.C.), and Hikaru Yaotome (Ya-Ya-Yah, later Hey! Say! JUMP). GYM released one single, "Fever to Future" (フィーバーとフューチャー)[4] as an official supporter of the Women's Volleyball World Grandprix. The single ranked #1 on the Oricon chart.[5] Golf & Mike also performed in 25 rounds of Johnny's Jr no Daibouken Concert.

At the end of August, Golf & Mike teamed up with other G-Juniors including Chin, Guy, Happy, Madiow, J, Nut, Ken, and Ice as a group called "G-JR"[6] (read as G-J-R) releasing an album, 10 Club.

On October 7, G-JR held a concert again called The Show Must Go On Concert By Golf-Mike & Friends at Impact Arena. The concert was first meant to be the Thai-J Pop Concert with Arashi & Golf-Mike but Arashi had to cancel its participation due to politic occurrences in Thailand at the time.[7] At the end of the month, G-JR managed to win a Virgin Hitz Awards 2006 for Popular Vote New Band.
