Japanese trauma techno-pop band URBANGARDE takes fans on a mind-bending trip in their new music video “Femme Fata Fantasy,” from their live-show limited edition CD Showa 91. Bridging out from their apocalyptic 2015 album Showa 90, the band removes their gas masks to reveal ape faces, bouncing around in savage rhythm before jumping forward to a space-age future, eerily reminiscent of Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
The band skewers a beach wedding fantasy with singer Yoko Hamasaki’s ring finger exploding from her hand in a bloody blastoff before turning into a rocket. Not content with just one bodily injury, Yoko runs across the beach with a short sword hidden in her bridal bouquet, stabbing her would-be husband and bathing happily in the sanguine spray.
Showa 91 will be available in 2 versions: “Monkey Version” and “Regular Version”.
