Born from a project during the writing of "Fanclub" (ファンクラブ), "Surf Bungaku Kamakura" (サーフ ブンガク カマクラ) is composed of songs which all start with train station names in their title. We are following a train going from "Fujisawa" (藤沢) to "Kamakura" (鎌倉). The album length is the shortest ever released by the band. The album has a rock sound, just like albums released before "Fanclub".
The simplicity and normal behaviour make Asian Kung-Fu Generation different from others Japanese bands. Their appearance on television is scarce and they are more concerned about their works than their image. Since the Fukushima's nuclear disaster, Asian Kung-Fu Generation is involved in favour of the definitive nuclear power stations shut down. Despite an agreement made with Ki/oon Records (Sony), the whole Asian Kung-Fu Generation's discography is financed by the band itself, allowing them to be musically independent towards the label.
