"Superb limited edition card digipak containing 4-page booklet with band info and photos. Gedo's first and self-titled album from 1974 was recorded live and is mostly hard rock with some psychedelic touches. A good mix of old-style rock'n'roll and heavier high-energy guitar rock with the occasional lighter, almost morose moment. A furious 'Born To Be Wild' rush of proto-Ramones. Gedo is a trio led by the charismatically androgynous guitarist/vocalist Hideto Kanoh, ex-The M, Masayuki Aoki ex-Too Much (bass) and Ryoichi Nakano (drums). Gedo had a big biker following and were a very popular act at the festivals that were a major feature of 1970s Japan rock culture. This album features at number 30 in Julian Cope's Japrocksampler Top 50."
