Fish Story Trailer (2009)
Trailer for Fish Story, the Japanese comedy that screened at Fantastic Fest 2009.
Before the Sex Pistols, there was Gekirin, a Japanese punk band struggling to carve out a space for their music apart from the easy listening, soft rock ballads dominating the airwaves in 1975. Although they failed to achieve recognition for their pioneering sound, the group managed to release one single that later sparked a cult following among a small set of collectors. While all manner of urban myths circulated over the years as to the meaning of the song “Fish Story,” no one could ever have guessed the fantastic destiny the recording would someday fulfill.
