FLCL's The Pillows Holds 30th Anniversary Exhibit in Shibuya Tower Records
posted on by Kim Morrissy
Japanese alternative rock band The Pillows (FLCL) is holding their 30th anniversary exhibit inside the Shibuya Tower Records. The exhibit is modeled after an American diner, and is called "the pillows museum Buster's diner." Here's a sneak peek at what's inside.
The band's mascot Buster-kun gets a big display.
On one side, the walls are lined with posters from various tours over the years.
On the other side, the walls are decorated like an American diner.
One area recreates the set of the "Funny Bunny" music video, complete with the caravan and a random statue of a deer.
You can see large posters of each band member: Sawao Yamanaka, Yoshiaki Manabe, and Shinichirou Sato. Plus you can check out models of their guitars.
From the ceiling hangs the entire collection of the pillows T-shirts.
A glass cabinet shows the band's discography and props.
Finally, a wall has post-it notes from fans who have visited the exhibit expressing their support. Some messages are even written in English!
The Pillows performed music for the original FLCL anime as well as BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad and Moonlight Mile. The group returned for FLCL Progressive and FLCL Alternative.
The exhibit will run from August 30 to September 8 on the 8th floor of the Shibuya Tower Records building. Entry costs 500 yen for adults. The shop sells some collaboration goods with FLCL, so fans should be sure to check that out.
