Seagull Screaming Kiss Her Kiss Her was a Japanese band formed by Aiha Higurashi in 1992. Their musical style contained elements of indie rock, experimental rock and, to a lesser extent, Shibuya-kei.

History[edit]

Seagull Screaming Kiss Her Kiss Her was formed in 1992 by Aiha Higurashi. Beginning as a two-girl band in New York City with her friend Sachiko Ito, it wasn't until after they had played a few shows that the band got its name, which was lifted from a track by the same name on British new wave pioneer XTC's The Big Express.[1] Aiha returned to Tokyo solo in 1994 where she enlisted bassist and vocalist Nao Koyama and drummer Takaharu Karashima (a.k.a. Takape).

Takaharu "Takape" Karashima left the band after recording Pretty In Pink in 1999.
