Japanese horror-comical freak metal punk. In Japan, there was a girls punk band called "10 Yen Anakinoko", which the singer Seiko started when she was 15 years old. This band ended after playing their last show in New York in 1995, and they became legend. 5 years later, 10 Yen Anakinoko played a one time reunion show in New York. A guitarist Jun was called in as a support guitar player, and this led to the beginning of the band GELATINE. Only a few hours after this reunion show, Seiko and Jun decided to start a new band. They had two aims to enforce. One was to let the great songs of 10 Yen Anakinoko come alive once again and even take them to a new level. Second aim was just simply to create new and intense music.
Spring of 2001, GELATINE started playing shows, and at their first show, they were already able to show their new very high-quality original songs.
The band continued to be active around New York area, and kept people dismayed especially with Seiko's intense stage performances.
On January 30th, 2009, GELATINE finally released the long-awaited first album, titled "Gie Ji Gaii". It is an integration of what GELATINE has been aiming for all these years.
This album was recorded at Melody Lanes Recording Brooklyn, NY. Recorded and mixed by Jay Braun and Jun Takeshita.
