5/27/11 11:51 am - romanshoubu - Collage + Art Zine: End Days of Our Youth

Ah- this community hasn't been very active - but I still hope that there are still Guruguru fans out there! Recently I put together a little collage and art zine called the End Days of Our Youth that may be of interest to some of you. I love Guruguru very much, and the zine was a way to pay tribute to them and the world they introduced me to.



There is a 20 page article about Guruguru Eigakan inside with some rare concert photos featuring the original line-up. It's both an introduction of the band as well an attempt to tie together some of the themes in the band (visual & lyrical) to a historical context, exploring the Taisho era concept of Eroguro Nonsense and 1990s nostalgia revival among Japanese youth.

The zine also features a collection of collages I made with a Taisho Roman and Showa Retro aesthetic. I was inpsired a lot by Guruguru Eigakan flyers and CD booklet designs, drawing from old pre-WWII Japanese magazines combined with my own photographs of cityscapes.

You can find out more about the zine and purchase a copy here.

Thank you for taking a look! m(_ _)m

I suppose this is kind of easy to find but I'll post it anyway because I love the band (and it's kind of quiet in here). Here is a video of 月に行った猫  live somewhere:

Also I'd like to ask if anyone still has the two moga mobo songs? because they're gone from mediafire..

5/9/10 02:34 am - aaau - Announcement

Guruguru Eigakan will temporarily stop their activities at the end of August, the reason being Amano's health issues (details withheld). He emphasizes that this is not a break-up, but more along the lines of giving himself necessary rest and taking it easy. We might occasionally see him doing other activities in the meantime. The band will do a tour and release a full album before going on hiatus, and each member has posted a message on the official site.

They have my very best wishes. Unlikely, but I hope to make it to some of those shows.
