He was a founding member of Pizzicato Five and the only founding member to stay with the group until its breakup in 2002. Konishi's current activities are through his company readymade entertainment and his record label 524 records (a play on words from Konishi's name, as the numbers 524 can be read ko-ni-shi in Japanese using goroawase).
