I do assume that many, even big fans, hesitate to place orders to him.
Some who did, do regret.

Juntaro being rip off, is known since... probably late 80's!
I would assume it is matter of fans who want to stuff, and there is no other option than direct order. Pure gamble they won't do when it's lesser known name.

I have pretty decent Gero collection and it has important part in my noise history, but for reasons above, I won't place orders from him.

Me calling him a rip off would be like closing this chapter and kinda giving him the OK to not send anything. No ! I am expecting the tapes i bought.

My first order came in 4 days. The second, never. When it was the time to claim my money from Paypal i decided not to. Yes, cause it's Juntaro, you are right, if it was someone of different "status" i would had claimed my money back. And cause i wanted the material. Took my chances. I lost, it seems, i hate to admit it. I want to believe it's otherwise, for practical and selfish reasons, although it is what it seems, it is what it is.

Lesson learned. In any case -yes, i cant shallow it- .

I placed an order in september '18 for the ZSF tape and Gero-P. Got a reply prior ordering and another reply when i months later asked him for an update. Never received anything. I haven't seen the re-release of the ZSF tape elsewhere either, is it for real?

I'd trade for a great tape dup of the ZSF tape. Not MP3's put onto tape.

Got my copy of the ZSF tape and the Gero-P after waiting four months. Juntaro sent the package AFTER I filed a paypal claim. This was my third and last direct order from him.

Made an order last September and after a few assurances that he'd send it, he stopped replying to me in January.

I made a very polite post on one of his recent Facebook updates asking for some communication, which was deleted. Upon noticing that a couple days later, I left another, still polite, comment asking for some communication. I was then promptly blocked from the page.

I got an email for him shortly after saying:
"Sorry for my delay.
I really bad my body.
I already finished your package.
I want to go to post office,asap."

Is he having health problems? I would certainly understand the delay if so. Hell, I understand it now with no reason at all - i'm patient, and from what I understand he wasn't very quick back in the day either. I myself have been notorious in the past for being slow to mail orders (I have since rectified this).
But banning me from the page? That I don't quite understand. I get deleting the comments -  I was planning on doing so after i got some sort of response. It just irks me. I very much want a lot of the stuff he's selling, I just don't have time for nonsense like this.

Looks like they have a bandcamp now: https://thegerogerigegege.bandcamp.com/

But of course you can only stream a 7 second sample of each release and prices for even downloads are insane. Still, probably the only way you’ll actually end up getting what you pay for!

It’s a pity to see this completely legendary act devolve into a cheesy cash grab rip off.

Considering his reliability history, that bandcamp is incredibly aggressive.

When you buy physical from Bandcamp you get the files as well. In this case, the 7 second sample. I dont believe anyone thinks he has complete files uploaded, hidden, to be included with the download ! Also, i dont believe anyone thinks he will get the CD he is gonna buy, anymore.

Very pity indeed. I guess if in need for money a donation call would be more effective, for sure more honest.

A new email i sent, still unreplied. I stop wasting my time complaining about him.

I get the impression it's not meant to be taken seriously. And if it is, it shouldn't be.

That's just the standard tactic for when you put up a bandcamp item that isn't actually the release / that you want to be streaming-only (in this case the audio samples are just a robot voice reading the title!), people make it effectively non-downloadable by putting a crazily high price

I'm certain anyone dumb enough to buy these as downloads would just get a download of the seconds-long robot voice!

I think Juntaro just hasn't realised you can add merch-only items, or doesn't want to do it that way for whatever reaon

Changed my mind. Gero are brilliant again now.
