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 1970's Japan rock culture. Formed by ex-members of early '70s festival stalwarts the M and Too Much, Gedo was a power trio whose biker fans followed them from bar to bar, making each gig into a show of ritual, full of euphoric moments, in-jokes and surprising outbursts of extreme collective male melancholy. With songs full of lyrics evoking images of hell, despair, pig’s flesh and fool’s paradises (sic), Gedo's early LPs were sparsely-produced by Mickey Curtis, who kept intact the band's furious Born-to-be-Wild rush of proto-Ramones. Unfortunately, like other such mid-'70s hard rockers (think Bang, think Pink Fairies, think Dust), Gedo's albums nowadays suffer from too much variety. However, their debut LP appears at number 30 in Japrocksampler's Top 50, and the band is discussed further in the book's brief essay 'Gedo & the Rise of the Festival Bands'
