Desperate Children "Chaos/Fuck Day/I Love Punk" 7" flexi
- Joy Riders, 1986, Japan - $58
AWESOME noisy and chaotic sounding punk from Kyushu. Yep, another unknown but killer '80s Kyushu punk band here. Not exactly in the "typical" noise-core style that came out of this area, but I'd highly recommend this to fans of early Swankys, Gai, Gess, No Cut, Chaos CH or early Disorder. You know the drill.
Dilenma "S/T" 7" EP - Armored Brain, 1995, Japan, (ABR-002EP) - $45
Fucking amazing metallic Japcore!!!!!! A short-lived band from Osaka. If you're into the bands in similar metallic style like Ghoul, Demolition, Rapes, GISM, Zouo, Mobs, Deep Throat etc., then you'd love this EP for sure. Dilenma plays much faster than any of these bands! Awesome fast metallic riffs, powerful gruff vocals and solid tunes. Cool artwork/packaging as well. Perfect! Self-released by the band. Too bad this is the only record they've ever done. It wasn't well distibuted and sold mainly at their shows.

Fucking killer band!!! Pre-Apatia. Definitely one of my favorite '80s Polish HC records. Ultra-raw, noisy and brutal HC with intensely distorted guitar like early Brazilian or Finnish bands.

Man, this is seriously some powerful ripping shit!! Released on a Swiss label. Unplayed old stock copy of this rare obscure EP.

Insect Powder "Rip Van Win-Kle" 7" flexi - Chicken Shit, 1985, Japan, (VG+/EX-), (CS-3) - $38
Greeeeeaaaaaat!!!! Another fine obscure '80s band from Sendai city, where a bunch of good bands like Disarray, Sekinin Tenka, Rebel, Bitousha, Lance Lot, Dead Person were from. Speedy, tight and metallic Japcore with really awesome drivin' guitar that stands out. Good gruff vocals, ofcourse. Their songs also got some very catchy parts as well. Totally original style. I definitely wouldn't sell it if I didn't have an extra one! Rare release on Disarray's Chicken Shit Records. Note: The flexi is in VG+ condition, makes some popping noise on the B-side.

Kenzi "Bravo Johnny wa konyamo Happy End" LP - City Rocker, 1986, Japan, Insert, (CR-00N) - $30
It's one of the rarest City Rocker and Kenzi releases that usually sells for $200+ in Japan. This copy has a scratch and skips at the beginning of the first track, so I'm pricing it low.(Got an upgraded copy for myself, finally...) Super catchy, fast paced and very energetic in-your-face Japanese punk. It's a killer 1st LP!!(They also had an EP out on Hold Up/Noise Room Records.) One of Japan's longest-running premier punk bands among with The Star Club, Cobra, Laughin' Nose etc. They later changed the name to Kenzi & The Trips. The bassist used to be in Sekinin Tenka, Bitousha, G-Zet/Bloodberry and now plays in Dessert and Kenzi & The Trips.

This 1st flexi fucking kills!!! 12 tracks of speedy, chaotic and violent raw Japcore. One of my all-time '80s Japcore favorites. Note: The flexi has a bent at the bottom left part but plays fine without skipping at all, and the sleeve is also in VG or VG+
Lascivious "Requiem to Che Guevara" 7" flexi - Akiraxtoy, 1986, Japan, Clear red flexi, (AXT-01) - $70
Mega obscure rarity here. There are shit loads of good unknown '80s bands from the country side of Japan that did just one flexi on their own label and broke up, like this band. From their music style, it's not hard to figure they had a big influence from the bands like The Stalin, Kikeiji, Sekinin Tenka etc. Hard-hitting dark ADK style punk with a slight metallic HC touch. This flexi is only known to a very few obsessive collectors even in Japan. Nearly impossible to find!
Less Haze "Break The Law" 7" EP - Skull, 1991, Japan,
(Skull 01) - $15
Straight-forward fast Japcore in the similar style as DonDon, Systematic Death and the Selfish Records era Outo.

Magnets, The "Plunk Boy" 7" EP - Office Para, 1988, Japan, Insert, (R-020) - $35
Featuring a super drummer Iron-Fist Tatsushima, who later played in G.I.S.M., Crow, Die You Bastard!, Scamp etc. It was his first band back in the mid/late '80s, when he was wearing a cool handmade Gauze t-shirt in the front sleeve pic. Really good, fast, aggressive and hard-hitting '80s Japanese style punk with driving' guitar! One of my all-time favorite bands since '87. This EP seriously rips hard. Original 1st press on Tokyo based Office Para label, with a lyrics insert and glossier sleeve.(I believe that the Vivid Sound label reissue didn't come with one...)

Straight-forward, fast traditional Japcore from Kyushu,
ala Lip Cream, Gauze or Outo. Early Kings World release! This is the first release by Mess and is waaaaay better than the later EP on Selfish and LP on Bloodsucker Records. Excellent flexi!!!!!
Middle Rocker, The "Crazy Hear...!" 8" flexi - Club The Star, 1985, Japan, (CSR 1002) - $35
Hard sounding killer '80s obscure Japanese punk with a bit of dark ADK feel. Very powerful and energetic tunes. Great unknown band! With the titles like "Dead Life", "Rebel Without A Cause" and "hell Ward", you know what to expect. Rare unknown release on The Star Club's label.
Mobs "Gypsy On Journey" 7" EP - Advance, 1986, Japan, Insert, (AVR-002) - $25
Self-released 3rd EP by this legendary early HC band from Osaka. Sounds more metallic than their earlier stuff on AA and Hold Up Records, but still much faster and more powerful sounding than the later LP. Think of their 2nd EP mixed with some early/mid Gastunk and Poison Arts style. Nice metallic guitar solos. Not many people even talk about the late Mobs stuff, but I dig this EP a lot.
Nailed Down "Perth Wolfpack" CD - Power It Up, 2005, Australia, Bonus live video media track - $3
Neuroottiset Pelimannit "S/T" 7" EP - Assel/SFU, 2006, Finland, 500 pressed, Label flyer, New/Unplayed - $10

New Walls "S/T" 8" flexi - Line, 1984, Japan, New/Unplayed - (Line-002) - $30
Like the harder version of Nickey & The Warriors. Great rickin' hard punk rock with really cool female volcals! Feat. ex-members of P.C.G. and Headless. The vocal style reminds me of Chitose from The Comes. Rare obscure release on Line Records that also did the Rose Rose flexi, P.C.G. flexi etc. Unknown band, but I totally dig it.
New Walls "S/T" 8" flexi - Line, 1984, Japan, (M-/NM+), (Line-002) - $28
Nickey & The Warriors "Dreams" LP - Captain, 1987, Japan, (M/VG+), (CAP-0058-L) - $25
Catchy as hell, female fronted Japanese punk rock. Featuring ex-members of The Stalin, Baws etc. Great band. One of my favorite '80s bands from Japan for sure. Note: 2 tiny pin holes at the top part of the sleeve, otherwise EX
Ningen Hormone "S/T" 7" flexi - Joker, 1985, Japan, Clear red flexi, (JRR-002) - $38
On the same label that also did the Kyoaku Kyojindan and Barigade flexi's. Joker Records is pre-Satsugai Enka Vinyl. Ningen Hormone is like a chaotic, rawer and "crappier" lo-fi version of The Stalin and some of those ADK bands. I remember that's how it was described in an old Japanese zine review. Think of Flipper playing the ADK style punk like Aburadako, Kikeiji etc. 6 tracks of fast, rough and obnoxious as hell hardcore punk. Crazy ass lyrics, too.
No Class "Broken Message" 7" EP - Tune, 1988, Japan, Poster sleeve - $40
Very obscure '80s Japcore with great metallic guitar. They remind me a bit of early Lip Cream, Outo, Gauze and the late '80s Selfish Records stuff. Their only release and has 6 tracks with the titles like "Dead Alive", "Core", "No More War" etc. Good band.
Noise Distraction "Agitate Power" 7" flexi - Self, 1990, Japan, New/Unplayed, (ND-001) - $30
Ultra-fast and ripping traditional Japcore with evry sharp guitar! Top-notch release by this amazing, however sadly unknown band. If they've had any releases on Selfish Records, I bet tons of Japcore fans would have been going nuts for them. They put out an LP on Vinyl Japan a little after this flexi as well as a few tracks on an old MCR comp that I can't remember the title of.
Non Fiktion Noiz "¡Contaminación Mundial!" 7" EP - SouthKore, 2004, US, 500 pressed, Insert, Long out of print, (SK 001) - $5
Awesome raging pissed-off hardcore from Chicago, in the vein of Los Crudos and Sin Orden. Brutal shit.
Nurse "Nurse II" 7" EP - ADK, 1984, Japan, (ADK-13E) - $70
Produced by Tam from ADK Records/G-Zet/The Stalin.
Rare 2nd EP with Tatsu(Gastunk/ex-Dead Cops) on guitar and Euro(The Execute) on drums. The same female singer and bassist from the 1st flexi on Incest Records, which was a great label ran by a Sha-London/Sex Imagination Drugs singer, that also put out the S.I.D., Sha-London and Paruo flexi's. While it's not as great as the 1st flexi, it's still a very good EP. One of my favorite ADK releases.
Outo-Syojodan "Yokkyufuman no shirayukihime..." 7" flexi
- Satsugai Enka Vinyl, 1988, Japan, (VG/EX-) - $30
Violent and chaotic sounding speedy Japcore.(The last track with female vocals sounds kinda like The Comes...). This band reminds me of Kyojinbyo. It's the first record release of this long-running cult label ran by Crazy SKB from Kyoaku Kyojindan/Headwasher. Note: The flexi is in VG condition and has some small dents like many other old flexi's do, but plays perfectly without any skips.

Piss, The "Gun Fury" 7" flexi - Self, 1987, Japan - $12
Melodic and snotty U.K. influenced punk rock with rockin' guitar that reminds me of the Kings World bands from Kyushu and the late Swankys. 4 tracks.
Pogo, The "S/T" 7" flexi - Self, 1986, Japan, New/Unplayed, (BDB-006) - $25
The Pogo played really cool, fast and super catchy, yet aggressive Japanese style punk rock. Totally unknown outside of Japan, but they got pretty big after releasing the 12"s on Captain Records in the late '80s. Their 1st flexi after appearing on the RBF comp LP w/ Rose Rose, Sister Ray(ex-Kikeiji), The Zolge etc.
Poison "Hot Rod" 7" EP - Selfish, 1986, Japan, Insert - $40
Chelsea from Deathside/The Execute/Paintbox on guitar. Great metallic Japcore. The first band by one of the best Japcore guitarists. Later changed the name to Poison Arts.

Re Zist "Mother of Pearl" 7" EP - Half Alive, 1987, Japan, (HAR-004) - $38
Yes, this actually exists. Quite unknown 2nd EP by Re Zist.(The last Half Alive release?). All the other Half Alive stuff like the flexi's by Jyudensouchi, Gazize and Re Zist are rare, but this EP seems that even harder to come by. They play good ADK style dark and solid punk on this EP.
Real "S/T"(Real 2) 7" flexi, Real Office, 1982, Japan, Stamped and numbered sleeve(# 830) - $35

Real "Real 4/Kids" 7" EP - ADK, 1984, Japan, (ADK-20E) - $68
Produced by Tam from ADK Records/G-Zet/The Stalin.
Probably one of the most overlooked, yet hardest to find ADK releases. Never seen it for sale elsewhere outside of Japan. I like all Real releases, but this one and the 8" on Ducasse label are their best in my opinion. Totally awesome, solid and hard sounding punk with sharp guitar. If you dig the bands like The Stalin, Molugu, Rebel, Kikeiji etc., then you'll like this EP.
Real "Ai no kakera" 7" flexi - Real Office, 1987, Japan, 12-page booklet - $35
Their self-released 6th 7". All the 3 tracks are very good, especially the title track stands out. It's a great punk tune.

Slang, The "10th Anniversary 1988~1998"(Early Demos) LP - Straight Up, 1997, Japan, Insert, New/Unplayed - $17
Early demo materials from when The Slang was still playing raging traditional Japcore. Great heavy HC tunes with gruff vocals. Very similar to those Burning Spirits style bands from Tokyo. This LP was limited release and is a bit hard to find now.
Slight Slappers "Change" 7" EP - MCR, 1997, Japan, Insert, (MCR-108) - $7
Slowmotions, The "Dial wo mawase!" CD - HG Fact, 2005, Japan, Obi, (HG-189) - $7
Contains their first four EP's plus an unreleased song. Featuring ex and current members from Acid, Liberate, Evance, Order, Sticks In Throat, Blaze, Hat Trickers and more. The singer Kuro from Liberate/Acid does vocals on the early tracks, which I personally like much better than the later ones. All the original EP's were limited to 700 each and sold out fast. Loud and rockin' Japanese punk rock. Cool band, but the label dude is a total dickhead.

Sodom "S/T" 7" EP - Telegraph/Wechselbalg, 1985, Japan, Oversized sleeve, (WT-705) - $30

Spit Out(Coward + Gasmask) "Dowheeeee" One-sided 7" EP - M@frog, 1996, Japan, 300 pressed, New/Unplayed - $48
Studio-only project band by ex-singer and bassist of Coward, and two ex-Gasmask members. Fucking killer high-speed drivin' raw hardcore/punk that doesn't sound like any other bands! '80s Japanese punk plus their own unique style. Can't really describe how awesome this EP is. Reminds me just a little bit of Typhus or early The Stalin, but Spit Out played much, much faster!! This record got a good review in MRR(1997). Self-released by the band's own label. Very, very rare and hard to find. Rarely seen for sale even in Japan due to the poor distibution at the time of release. Totally excellent EP!!!!!
Spunky Boys "Spunk Age" 12" - Kings World, 1989, Japan, (KK 00X) - $40
The Swankys/Last Child influenced last '80s Kings World style Kyushu punk! But Spunky Boys played their songs harder than The Swankys. Catchy tunes with very powerful vocals, not snotty like many Kyushu bands from this era. They used to play gigs with local bands like The Swankys, Last Child, No Cut, Lydia Cats etc. from the mid to late '80s. Their second release after releasing the 7" in '86. I think this is the very first 12" record that Kings World has ever released. Includes 6 tracks. All great but especially the last song "Prisoner" really stands out. It's a killer punk tune. Very rare. Never seen it for sale outside of Japan.
Stalin, The "Allergy/No Fun" 7" - Climax/Tokuma, 1982, Japan, Incl. a non-LP track, (CMA-2033) - $30
Star Club, The "Anoko ni hitomebore" 7" flexi - Club The Star, 1984, Japan, (Club The Star 005) - $65
Mega-rare gig freebie only flexi!! This is probably one of the hardest to find and most sought after S.C. releases of all. Contains a killer, fast and hard drivin' punk title track tune which was actually the very first song that was ever written by them right after the band was formed, however has never been officially recorded 'til '84.(Except the live ver.) Although this track isn't available on any of their other records, it's one of the most well known and loved tunes to their older fans. The flexi was given away free to fans only at one show at Loft in '84.(Says "Not For Sale" on it.) Some online resources say that it was the first flexi to be given away through their fan club in the late '80s, but that's not true. Note: The flexi has a few tiny dents but plays perfectly. It's nothing major.
State "No Illusions" 7" EP - Reagan Era HC, 199?, US, Insert - $5

1st EP from their pre-thrash metal era. Very HC influenced Japanese metal. It's like a perfect mix of old school speed metal and Gastunk/Ghoul/Poison/Mobs sound. No wonder this was released on Hold Up/Noise Room. United was also on the legendary Hold Up Omnibus comp LP. Max from Ghoul and Trash are listed on the Special Thanks list. If you dig that metal sound on the G.I.S.M. "M.A.N." LP, you probably will enjoy this as well.

Two tracks by Swat, with titles like "Death Boy" and "Roudousha-kaikyu"(The Proletariat). Sawaki Kazumi is from the old band called Hinokyu, who had the 7" out on City Rocker in '84. It's his project band playing some weird ass punk on this split.
