World’s End Girlfriend (ワールズ・エンド・ガールフレンド) is Katsuhiko Maeda from Tokyo, Japan whose love for music began when he started listening carefully to his father’s collection of classical music, around the age of 10.
Katsuhiko Maeda began making music with tape recorders, piano, and guitar at 12. During his teens and early twenties, he made around 600 tracks in every style imaginable, with every combination of instruments and equipment he could lay his hands on.
He has released tracks on Japanese independent labels, Forfull, Young-Z, and Cubic Music. He also contributed to the Pussyfoot compilation album Pussytoon (2000).
Worlds End Girfriend’s reputation began to grow with his first album Ending Story released on Yoshihiro Hanno’s Current label in 2000, which caught people’s attention in Japan and abroad.
World's End Girlfriend has a new album out, Seven Idiots, that you should give a listen to. If you like Experimental Post-rock, and who doesn't, then this is for you.
