Two questions, firstly "AKIMA & NEOS" is just an alias for Tsuneo Akima right? Looking online doesn't seem to show there ever being any other members of the group.
Secondly, the booklet states that the song, "Sound Life ~ Lem" was performed by "AJA," but what exactly did they perform? I can't imagine it was the vocals as they're clearly sung by a female.
Is the AJA who performed this song perhaps not the same as the AJA that's currently listed in this page's performer section?

Akima & Neos appears to have been a band led by Akima, not just a solo pseudonym. This interview with Akima refers to the band's drummer, Haruhiko Oshima (大島治彦), whose own site lists a band line-up with the names of an additional guitarist, bassist and backup singers, at least during his time in it. No way to know, of course, whether any of them played on this album's 2 songs. I've never figured out who "Aja" is either (and I've tried), but is there a particular reason to even think it's the Aja who has an entry here? I don't see anything that would suggest it's the same person.

It's weird because almost every digital release seems to imply that it's just Akima. Amazon.jp says "AKIMA & NEOS(秋間 経夫)" iTunes.jp says "秋間経夫" and iTunes.us says "Tsuneo Akima." The US Amazon release seems to be the only one that actually uses Akima & Neos.

Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I think up until recently the Aja listed here directed to Junichiro Asa's page, though it seems to have been fixed now unless I'm just completely misremembering. Unfortunately clicking on the "Aja" listed in the Amazon and iTunes pages just brings you to unrelated artists that have the same name/moniker. I thought "Aja" might have been Rem's Japanese voice actress seeing as how she's the one singing in-universe, but it turns out the English voice actress (Bridget Hoffman) wasn't even the one who sung the song in the dub with her singing voice apparently being done by Emilie Brown, so it could have easily been the same way in the Japanese version too.
