Tokyo Glamrock: the work of Matsukage and Ujino

Front Cover
Features Ujino's self-built LOVE ARM electric instruments and Matsukage's inflated rock persona. In 1997, Matsukage teamed up with Muneturu Ujino, whose background is in graphics, photography, and music. Together they created a collaborative live performance art-unit: a two-man band they called Gorgerous--a combination of gorgeous and the dinosaur suffix saurus. Borrowing and bending the grammar of Western rock music and Japanese techno-punk, the Gorgerous phenomenon cuts across cultural boundaries of East/West, male/female, high art/mass culture, and nature/artifice. This is their story.
