GODAIGO debuted with their first single 'Boku no Salad Girl' (Kanebou Keshouhin CM song) in April of 1976. Though these days it is usual to use the phrase 'CM tie-up song', during the 197o's it was exceptional for a rock band to cover a cm song . Godaigo's notions differed from other rock bands', such as creating CM tie-up songs, writing a TV drama's main theme song, or even working on soundtracks for movies. Thanks to Godaigo's amazing sound and foresight, many of these methods are useful to musicians now.
Their album 'Dead End' was released in November 1977. It was a concept album that expressed the chaotic and dead end condition that society had become. This album was the piece that characterized Godaigo's basic attitude. For example, they used a new sound made from new types of instruments, such as a guitar synthesizer. Meanwhile, 'WATER MARGIN', the theme song of the TV drama 'Suikoden' broadcast by the BBC (British Broadcasting Company), hit the 37th rank on the British music charts. It was the first time a Japanese group accomplished this.
The album 'CM Song Graffiti', released in January of 1978, was the corpus of the CM songs released during that time. Godaigo's works were made with English lyrics written by the poet Youko Narahashi, later they added music composed by Yukihide Takekawa. Japanese words were translated into English words, giving it quite a unique style.
In July of this year, they covered the soundtrack for San Rio Film's 'Kita Kitune Monogatari'. Nihon TV's 25th year anniversary commemoration TV drama 'Saiyuuki' (casts: Masaaki Sakai, Masako Natsume, Toshiyuki Nishida, etc..) used Godaigo's songs throughout the whole story. Even though the album 'Saiyuki' was an original album, it also had the character for a soundtrack. The ending theme 'Gandara' became a big hit, and the album took the 1st place in he oricon chart. The theme song of the drama, 'Monkey Magic', continued to be a big hit. Even though 'Monkey Magic' was in English, it fought with 'Gandara' to achieve the 1st spot on a music show.
In January 1979, 'Beautiful Name' was to be broadcast on NHK Television for one year, as a campaign song for the International Children Year. From March, they began their 'Celebration Tour', traveling through 43 places throughout the nation. In May, Suntory Beer's CM song, 'Happiness', was released (which received an ACC award). In July, the theme song of Reiji Matsumoto's popular animation 'Ginga Tetsudo 999' was released. In autumn of that same year, the ending theme of the TV drama 'Saiyuki part 2', 'Holy & Bright' was released. They served as radio personalities for the program 'Godaigo Land' and 'AbudaKadabura'. In the same year, the album 'OUR DECADE' was released. It expressed the whole 1970's. At the end of the year, they held a concert in Budoukan, and appeared on NHK's 'Kouhaku Utagassen'. Godaigo turned out to be an icon legend for the 1970's.
In the beginning of the 1980's, Godaigo started to become active in foreign countries. Their broadcast on Asahi Housou's TV special 'Africa no Kuroi Taiyo' was determined (theme song: 'Return to Africa'). From this exposure, Godaigo held a concert at the Nepal royal stadium in Katmanz on February 7, which 60 thousand people arrived. They soon released 'Port Pia' for Koube International Exposition 'Port Pia '81', planned to be held in 1981. They promoted 'Port Pia' through the year, holding a live concert in Port Pia, and singing 'Port Pia' on the TV. In October, they participated in the event 'Street Scene', held in the Civic Theater. It was the 200 year anniversary of Los Angeles' municipal system. After returning to Japan, on October 22nd and 23rd, they promoted their new tune 'Promise in Tensin' at 'China-Japan amity music festival', held in Tensin Dai ichi Koujin Bunkakyu, located in Tensin, China. It was the first rock concert held in China. Scenes of the live concert are recorded in 'China Godaigo'.
In February 1981, they performed at the concert that welcomed pope and released their album 'MO.R' in September. In June of 1982, another albu, was released, 'CM Song Graffiti Vol.2'. During this time, some of the members began working by themselves. On 1984, they released album 'Flower', 'Heiwa Kumikyoku', and 'ONE DIMENSION MAN'. On April 21st 1985, they carried out their final tour live at Tokyo's Social Security Pension Hall, putting an end to Godaigo.
