The 1st flexi by this early HC band from Kyushu. This one and the "Dead Janky Girl" EP are their best in my opinion. They are also on the "Pinch & Ouch!" compilation on Kuro's KPP Records. This label More records also released the Headless flexi, A.T.-Det EP and State Children flexi.

Don't miss this flexi out if you dig this particular style of '80s Japanese bands like Kikeiji, Masturbation, Sekinin-Tenka, The Sadist, Shoujo-Ningyo or some of those darker soudning tunes by The Stalin. "Aka" means "red" in Japanese.

Crazy-ass heavy noise punk played by the members from Doom, Sore Throat, Police Bastard, Warfear etc. Can't seem to find much infos on this band, but I heard they were active in the late '80s to early '90s and the singer and guitarist should be from Doom and/or Sore Throat.

C.O.S.A.(Pre-Effigy/Reality Crisis) "Strategic" 7" EP - Self, 199?, Japan, Insert, (LM-2704) - $30
This EP was actually self-released by the band and MCR just did a distribution. No actual MCR catalog number stated anywhere on this release and also it's not listed on the label discography page either. Effigy started under the name of C.O.S.A.(Cache Of Strategic Arms) with some later Reality Crisis members as well. Dark, metallic, and raging Japanese style crustcore. Awesome 6-track EP. Some of the songs are from their demos. Very hard to come by nowadays. The ex-C.O.S.A. and Effigy guys now play in a new band called Axewield.

Confuse "Stupid Life" 12" - Kings World, 1989, Japan, 1000 pressed, KWR catalog insert, (KW12CS-004) - $98
The hardest to find Confuse record in awesome condition. Since at least a few thousand copies each of their other records(flexi & EP's) were pressed, it makes sense why this one, being limited to 1000 copies, don't pop up as often as the others do. Also, this 12" was released in 1989, not 1992 like some websites say. The reissue CD came out in 1992. I do remember seeing copies of theis 12" on the shelves at some record shops when it first came out sometime before the '90s. TRADE PREFERED!

Confuse "Old Master" CD - J.A.P./Crown, 1989, Japan, (JPD-410) - $65
Ultra-rare official Confuse compilation CD from 1989. It was released on a major label(!!) and for some unknown reason went out of print like a month after its release. Contains a FULL version of the "Nuclear Addicts" flexi('84) with an outtake track "Merciless Game" from the same recording session that was omitted from the actual flexi release, "Contempt For The Authority..." EP, and tracks from the "Jisatsu Omnibus" comp. 8" EP('84) and the "Neo?" comp. LP('88, mega-rare Kyushu punk/wave comp.) TRADE PREFERED!

Constricted "All Confusion" 7" EP - Bricks, 1999, Japan, 500 pressed, Orig. Japanese press, (Bricks 6) - $10
This is the original self-released, Japanese pressing of their 1st EP, not the '01 U.K. reissue on Destroy Records. On black vinyl with the original black, non-cardboard sleeve. A completely underrated, awesome band with the members from Humpty Dumpty. Kick-ass metallic thrash HC like Humpty Dumpty. Totally raging and crucial!

Cráck The Marian "Growing Up" 7" EP - Strawberry, 1986, Japan, (Strawberry ER-003) - $30
Early self-released EP by this cool Kyushu punk band that later bacame pretty big sometime around '89 in Japan. Think of the late '80s Kings World Records realted punk bands playing their songs faster and rawer. Super catchy and fast-pased rockin' punk rock in that good ol' Japanese style. They often played gigs with the bands like The Swankys, No Cut, Gess(Lydia Cats), Spunky Boys, The Last Child etc.

Desperate Children "Chaos/Fuck Day/I Love Punk" 7" flexi - Joy Riders, 1986, Japan, (No Cat. #) - $58
Another unknown but killer '80s band from Kyushu. Not exactly in the "typical" noisecore style that came out of the Kyushu area, but still AWESOME noisy chaotic HC/Punk!!!! The first two songs sound kinda noisecore-ish and the last song is in The Swankys vein. Highly recommend for fans of The Swankys(early), Gai, Gess, Gedon, No Cut, Chaos CH, Dust Noise or early Disorder and Chaos UK. Rare self-released flexi by this great obscure band.

Dessert "World Of Fantasy" 7" EP - Ranch, 1998, Japan, 1000 pressed, Clear & clear pink mixed vinyl, Stamped & numbered sleeve(# 461/1000), Insert & flyer, New/Unplayed/Unopened, (Ranch-01/SEL-One) - $28
The singer Ryuji used to be in the legendary bands Disarray, Bitousha and also this great band Mino 5 with Chelsea(Deathside/Paintbox) and Katsuta(Tetsu-Arrey/Extinct Government). The other Dessert members were/are in Sekinin-Tenka, Bloodberry(ex-G-Zet), Idiot Idolaters, Laughin' Nose, The Pogo, Kenzi & The Trips etc. As you can imagine from their background, these guys sure know what they're doing and you know what to expect from Dessert. 120% Burning Spirits style traditional metallic Japcore ala Death Side, Judgement, Crude, Nightmare, Warhead, Forward etc. Awesome throaty vocals as well. They did a great Disarray cover on the other release. This 4-track EP is a totally heavy-hitting smasher. The vinyl looks amazing, too. It's on a clear vinyl with some clear pink parts mixed. Comes in a glossy perforated package/sleeve(unopened).

This is the original pressing on Subvert & Deny label from Chicago. The later band issued copies came in a regular sleeve with black ink, and no label address printed. The guitarist from Limp Wrist and Acid Reflux was in this band. Great, raw and loud HC with raging screaming vocals. Not another "Dis" band! Completely unknown band but this is actually one of my favorite '90s records from the U.S. Well worth checking it out.

Disturb "For The Live" 7" EP - Discrete, 199?, Japan, 500 pressed, (DIS-015) - $18

Doku-Buta(Poison Pig) "Go! Go! People" 7" flexi - Self, 1985, Japan, (No Cat. #) - $35
Think of a cross between Aburadako, Kikeiji, and The Stalin. If you like these bands, you'll love Doku-Buta! Another unknown but awesome ADK/The Stalin worshipped hard punk here. They even stole part of The Stalin lyrics and used it in one of their songs called "Egoist". The band bio printed on the sleeve says Doku-Buta is ex-Byogentai. I wonder if it's the same Byogentai that the L.S.D. singer was in!? Includes 7 tracks. Very rare!! Here's a review taken from an old MRR issue: "Translating as "Poison Pig," I expected a bit more weirdness than supplied, but this slab of plastic contains some neat tracks. They can do thrash, punk, proto-punk -- all with verve and gnarly-ass vocals and guitar. Reminds me a bit of early PERE UBU." ----- (Pere Ubu?! WTF...?)

Doom "Doomed From The Start-The Demo's Album" LP - Discipline/Vinyl Japan, 1992, UK, Japanese release, Gatefold sleeve, (DISCLP 5) - $38
Long out of print, Japan-only release. Compiles their three early demos from '87 and '88(incl. "War Is Big Business" 1st demo), plus live in Italy '89.

Down By Law "Anti ..." 7" EP - Voice Of A Generation, 1991, Japan, Small insert, (Voice Of A Generation 002) - $35
Allright, this is Down By Law from Japan, not the boring ass Epitaph band from the U.S. with the same name. Almost nobody knows about this band, but this EP rips hard as hell. Fast and heavy, straight-forward Japcore with great noisy guitar!! Great cover artwork, too. Could easily be on Selfish Records if it came out a few years earlier. Some of their songs remind me of Outo. Down By Law existed from the late '80s to early '90s. As far as I know, this is their only ever vinyl release by them.

Down In Flames "Start The Fucking Fire" 7" EP - Gloom, 2000, US, Record release show edition, Clear red vinyl, Insert, (Gloom-011) - $3

Drunk John Lennon "Wanna Hold Yer Gland/Hey Toe" 7" EP - Noiseville, 1993, US, 300 pressed, (Noiseville/Shitsville 16) - $3

End, The (Pre-Blüdwülf) "Natural Paths To Extinction" 7" EP - Anarchrist, 2000, US, Clear vinyl, Insert, (ANAR-0002) - $20
A long out of print EP by The End from NY. According to the official Bludwulf Facebook page, The End had some members who later went on to form Bludwulf. Reverand Sinn on vocals for sure. Not sure how many copies of this EP were pressed, but probably not that many and it's quite hard to find nowadays. Here's what their Facebook page says: "Bludwulf is a punk thrash band from Rochester NY. The band was founded in 2003 by members of now defunct Rochester crust band The End".

Ripping Japcore from the Nagoya area. Featuring some of the Reality Crisis and Hazard members. There's an odd story behind this release, the label had to stop selling it right after its release and get all the copies returned from the shops for some unknown reason. Must have been some kinda trouble between the band and label?

Funx "Königs Tiger" 7" EP - Pafe, 1983, Japan, Oversized sleeve(10" size), Insert, (SK-502) - $55
What an amazing band! This is a great EP. The Stalin, Sekinin-Tenka, ADK Records(Kikeiji, Aburadako etc.) styled dark and mid-tempo punk meets lo-fi noise punk ala Flipper. Also I hear the slight Friction or Speed influences in some of their songs. What you get on this 5 track EP is mixture of all that good stuff. Absolutely unique and original style of punk rock, I must say. Man, I just love this record so much. Finally managed to find an extra copy, so here's one for sale. It was released on Pafe Records, a small label from the countryside of Japan(Toyama pref.), that put out some cool local obscure punk, hardcore and wave stuff. Every single release done by this label is so damn hard to come by. A very rare piece of Japanese punk history. I probably won't get this record again.

Gai "1981-1985" Tape - Violent Party, 1985, Japan, Insert(copy?), (Violent Party No.?) - $60
Super rare cassette-only release on Violent Party Tapes. It's the original tape, the real deal. The sleeve spine says "History Of GAI!". Came out around the time the "Very Best of Hero..." LP was released right after Gai changed back the name to The Swankys(Gai actually started as The Swankys in '81, then had to change the name to Gai in '83 due to being banned by the local clubs). Compiles the 17 various studio demo tracks, plus 1 unlisted bonus(?) track which is supposed to be called "Yes! Future". Some of the songs are completely unreleased and can be only heard on this tape. Also, as far as I know, all the tracks are unreleased, exclusive version to this tape and wern't taken from the other demos or the flexi. The "Damaging Noise" demo(Violent Party No.1) is from '83, so I'm guessing that some of the tracks on this tape were recorded even earlier and possibly their oldest materials. Violent Party was Gai's own label that also put out their other demos, Sieg-Heil, No Cut, Gess demos, "Violent Party Omnibus" etc. It was also reffered to the group of a bunch of local punks around Gai organizing the gigs in Kyushu(Hakata area), among with SS Company and Kuro's KPP Records.
Note: The tape, sleeve and case are 100% original, however the insert may be a xerox copy(but I'm not certain about this. It just looks like it). Thought I'd mention this. Also the back side(blank) of the sleeve has some light fingerprint(?) marks.

Gai "Damnation" 12" - Kings World, 1996, Japan, 1000 pressed, Obi, (KWLP-5003) - $65
Limited official vinyl issue of their 2nd demo tape, originally released by Violent Party Tapes in '84. Nice production with a heavy sleeve and an obi. Has the killer sleeve artwork as well.

Gaizi "Gakon-Fumetsu"(My Immortal Soul) 7" EP - Self, 1997, Japan, 500 pressed, (No Cat. #) - $55

Gas "Reincarnation" LP - Captain, 1986, Japan, Insert, (CAP-0014-L) - $40
This LP was originally planned to be released as their 1st full length. However the band broke up before they finished recording the whole thing and it ended up being a compilation of the tracks from the split 8" with Nikudan('84, Jisatsu), "Sweet Emtion" 12"('85, Jisatsu) and the 4 new songs recorded just for this LP in '85. These 4 exclusive tracks are NOT included on the "1982-1986" discography LP/CD. Liner notes written by Narumi herself.

Gastunk "Dead Song" LP - Love, 1985/86, Japan, Insert, (SEX69-000) - $35

Gastunk "Gastunk Box 1983-1988" 2 x CD Box Set - Love, 1988/91, Japan, Hard carton box package, Booklet, (Love Records GT-001~002) - $40
Originally released as the limited vinyl + VHS box set that was sold only at their last show in '88. This is the super-rare double CD set reissue in a hard carton box package(the same style of the box package that the GISM SoniCrime 1st press CD came in), and is actually even harder to find than the original vinyl box set. Contains the "Mr. Gazime" EP, "Geronimo" EP, "To Fans" EP, "Three Sex X'mas" 3 x EP + flexi set, and "The Vanishing Signs" 12". Contains 21 songs in total. Very nice.

Gagize "Traculent Crime" 7" flexi - Half Alive, 1986, Japan, (HAR-002) - $65

Greed, The "No Mercy" 7" flexi - Sky Bandit, 1985, Japan, (SK-9100) - $30
This is an awesome flexi. Another super obscure '80s Japanese punk band that mostlikely did only one flexi and dissapeared. Although I absolutely know nothing about this band, I must say that "No Mercy" is a quality speed punk tune with very solid guitar and super catchy choruses. Melodic yet powerful as fuck. The vocals are versy strong too and totally matche their hard driving fast punk sound. No wimpy pop punk crap here. Reminds me a bit of some of the songs off The Stalin "Mushi" LP, except the ctachy chorus part is nothing like it. The only thing that sucks about this flexi is that there's only one song on it. After hearing it, you definitely will wish to hear more from this band like I did. But unfortunately I have no clue if they've released anything else or at least appeared on any compilations. Not only I can't seem to find any infos about this band, this flexi itself isn't something I see often at all. This is the only second copy I've obtained in Japan. The back sleeve has an ad for their "Hard Ride A Nasty Punk Vol.1" show at Antiknock in Tokyo printed on it and apparently Aggressive Dogs also played this show.

Griffin FZ "Retaliation" 7" flexi - Self, 1989, Japan, (Otoko-001) - $65
Pre-Zone!! Obscure Shizuoka-city Japcore band. This flexi is extremely rare and hard to come by. The only ever release by them besides a great '87 split demo with Exdead. Heavy-hitting, speedy and metallic Japcore in the tradition of those other great '80s Shizuoka-city bands ala Deadless Muss, So What, Rustler, Innocents, Mental etc.

HxKxK "Damned!" 7" EP - Reviera, 2000, Germany, (HKK 01) - $5
Top-notch thrashin' hardcore like Reproach or Dead Stop! Really good band but I can't seem to find ANY infos on this band or release.

Hakuchi "Gods Disturb" 7" EP - Overthrow, 1993, Japan, Insert, 600 pressed, (Overthrow-006) - $45
Top-notch dark metallic crust from Niigata. Great EP by this pre-AGE band. One of the eariest Japanese crust bands. Hakuchi also had a split LP with Disclose. This is the hard to find, early release by Overthrow Records.

Humpty Dumpty, The "Death To Appearances" 7" EP - Human, 1995, Japan, Clear vinyl, Insert, (Human 3) - $35
Hard to find 1st EP by this long-running, awesome metallic HC band with a Constricted member. One of my favorite '90s~current Japanese bands. Highly influenced by the '80s Scandinavian & U.K. metallic HC. Fucking great EP! Too bad, no so many people know how good this band is....!

Humpty Dumpty, The "Earth's Haywire Pendulum" LP - Human, 2003, Japan, Insert, (12 HUM 2) - $38

Harlem Deads "Street Girl" 7" flexi - Rose Label, 1986, Japan, Promo-only/freebie, (Rose 004) - $5
Catchy as hell, Japanese punk rock with some glam punk feel. From Osaka. It's got only one song on it but is actually very good if you like catchy, melodic and tuneful punk rock.

Häväistys "Saamme Vain Sen Minkä Pystymme Ottamaan" 7" EP - Semmoset Levyt, 200?, Finland/Japan, 500 pressed, Insert, (SL-001) - $5

Heartwork "S/T" 7" EP - Dewa/Cadmium Sick, 2002, Japan, (DR-007) - $3
Split release by AGE's Dewa Records and a Boston-based label. (A review taken from some blog) Debut EP by Niigata’s HEARTWORK, a record that turned many heads among North American punks. It’s a shame, then, that now Dewa alone have delivered the band’s sophomore EP, a ripping three-song set that deserves every bit as much attention as its predecessor. HEARTWORK’s music hasn’t changed a bit— quick, driving blasts of purist hardcore punk that recall classical US (Negative Approach, Minor Threat), Japanese (Lip Cream, Systematic Death) and even some early UK bands. The pace is set by a consistent galloping beat, fortified by prominent bass, accompanied by shouted vocals and all driven along by a non-stop buzzsaw guitar that occasionally leaps into tasteful leads but never loses the essential momentum.

Hellhammer "Triumph Of Death" CD - No label, 199?, Switzerland, Slipcase package, (No Cat. #) - $12
Contains the "Triumph Of Death" demo '83(13 tracks) plus 4 bonus tracks off the "Death Fiend" demo '83.

Inu "Meshi Kuuna!" LP - Japan Rec./Tokuma, 1981, Japan, Obi & insert, (JAL-4) - $85
Early Japanese punk masterpiece! The only ever original studio album by this legendary band, featuring the now Akutagawa Literary Award-winning author Kō Machida(Kou Machida). He was Inu's singer under the name of Machida Machizo. Inu was formed in 1978 and broke up in 1981 shortly after the album release. Machida also appeared in the cult cyberpunk film classic "Burst City", with The Stalin, The Roosters etc.

Joy "First Issue" 12" - Trans, 1987, Japan, (Trans-19) - $8
Featuring Baki(Gastunk/The Execute) on vocals and the guitarist from Virus, Canis Lupus etc. Very hard to describe their music... Late Gastunk meets ADK style dark punk(ala Kikeiji, Sekinintenka) meets gothic punk like Asylum or Zoa...? The songs actually sound cool, though.

Produced, engineered and released by Tam(The Stalin/
Typhus/G-Zet/ADK Records). Very rare and awesome 2nd EP by this legendary ADK band from Tokyo. All four songs in different styles with totally unique lyrics. Man, I love all the their releases. Such a great band. Kikeiji featured the members from some other great bands like Aburadako, G.I.S.M., Masturbation, Sister Ray, Psychi etc.

Kikieiji "Pressure" 7" flexi - ADK, 1983, Japan, 1500 pressed, Clear red flexi, 2 x insert, (ADK-10S) - $78

Kuro "Hardcore Damnation"(Studio & Live) 2 x CD - Kings World, 1990(?), Japan, (KWP-006) - $58
Rare double CD set containing the 1st flexi, "Who The Helpless" 8", "Fire" 7", "1983 Gig" flexi and the '86 live recording(10 tracks). The official Kings World Records release. Long out of print.

Kuro "Revival Of Death" 7" EP - Kings World, 1996, 666 pressed, (KWAP-001) - $45
Contains the 4 killer exclusive tracks that you can only hear on this release, including the previously unreleased songs "Black Empire" and "Hell Dive" plus the re-recorded studio and live version of their classic tune "No More No"!!! All these tracks sound so damn aggressive and violent, the way Kuro's music should be!! Recorded in '96 when they got back together for a short period. There was a plan on releasing the album but it never happened since the singer died. This EP is much better than the "Fire" EP in my opinion. One time only limited pressing of 666 copies. Top-notch release by these Japanese HC legends!!!

Kyaah(キャ→) "Slapdash" 7" EP - AA, 1985, Japan, Die-cut glossy sleeve, Insert & sticker, (AA-011) - $40
Great 2nd EP by one of the most well known all-female punk bands in Japan. Their later releases sound poppier and aren't that exciting but the first two EP's are awesome! What you get on this EP is speedy and high-energy punk that's similar to the Nurse flexi, Typhus '80 demo(w/ female vox), or Chu-Doku flexi. Guest chorus by the members from Lip Cream, Bloodberry, and Laughin' Nose. Kyaah used to play gigs often with Nurse, Gas and The Comes. The interesting thing is that when they changed the singer prior to this EP release, Chitose(The Comes) was gonna join the band however it never happened(too bad!). Complete copy with an insert and a red sticker which is actually part of the sleeve design(a sticker appears thru the die-cut window).

Kyaah(キャ→) "Rebel Point" 12" - Spankids, 1986, Japan, Insert, (23SPK-101) - $25
The first time I've heard this 12" and it wasn't that bad like I thought it would be. Definitely not as fantastic as their previous two EP's but it's not very far from those either. The thing is that I didn't like their last LP called "Dear Mr."(Captain Records) so much and I presumed this 12" would be the same. Cool, speedy and spazztic punk rock. Fun stuff. Self-released on their own label.

L.S.D. "Destroy" 7" flexi - ADK, 1983, Japan, 2nd press w/ different sleeve artwork, (ADK-07S) - $90
Produced, engineered and released by Tam(The Stalin/Typhus/G-Zet/ADK Records).

Laughin' Nose "Get The Glory/I Can't Trust A Woman" 7" EP - AA, 1984, Japan, (AA-PR 001) - $45

Laughin' Nose "Never Trust Women" 12" - AA, 1985, Insert, (AA-014) - $40
Their 2nd 12" on AA Records. Has some of the old L.N. songs that I love like "No War", "Teenager", "Never Trust Women" etc. So, I personally like this one better than the "Pussy For Sale" LP. But, both are good though.

Laughin' Nose "When The Laughin' Nose Go Marchin' Inn!" 7" flexi - AA, 1985, Japan, Promo-only/freebie, New/Unplayed, (No Cat. #) - $25
One of the most well known crazy events ever occured in Japanese punk history: Laughin' Nose announced the "flexi giveaway" held near the Shinjuku train station and the 1200 punks showed up. To avoid the panic and troubles from the cops, the singer had to lead everybody to the Loft where they played 2 shows the same night and the flexi's were given away there instead. This incident later became the legend. What's offered here is one of those actual flexi's given away that time. Contains a great catchy punk rock tune and a cool ass sleeve artwork, too. Unplayed old stock copy!

Less Haze "Break The Law" 7" EP - Skull, 1991, Japan, (Skull-01) - $7
Straight-forward fast Japcore in the similar style as DonDon, Gil, Outo and some of the late '80s Selfish Records stuff. Self-released 1st EP.

Liberate "Worth Of Living" 7" EP - Blood Sucker, 1994, Japan, Sleeve artwork misprinted sideways(1st press), Insert, (BSR-015) - $8

Lip Cream "Kill Ugly Pop!" LP - Captain/Dynamite, 1985, Japan, New/Unplayed, (CAP-0016-L/DONDON-002) - $58
Unplayed stock copy!! If you wonder why some copies of this LP don't come with insert, here's the infos. The first pressing of 1000 copies originally issued without one because the label didn't have them printed yet at the time of its release. So people who bought the LP without insert later had to get it either at the Lip Cream shows or by contacting the label, but obviously some people didn't bother ever getting one.

Loods, The "Stop Fuckin' Around!" LP - R.B.F./Balcony, 1985, Japan, Ltd. 1st press w/ flexi(autographed sleeve), Printed inner-bag sleeve, Photo booklet, New/Unplayed, (RBF-301/Girls-2) - $18
Pure '80s Japanese style, straight-forward and hard-edged punk rock. Their discography CD was recently released on Inundow. Unplayed old stock copy.

Mad Rats "Speed Kills" 7" EP - 625 Thrashcore, 2002, Portugal, (625 #84) - $3

Madame Edwarda "La Vie En Rose" 12" - Tabu/Media Bum, 1986, (TAV-001/SVR-1801) - $65
In case you don't know, unlike the other Madame Edwarda records on City Rocker Records, this self-released 12" is extremely tough to find even in Japan. I've only seen two copies in the past 20 years or so. Totally awesome release by this awesome band. All the songs on this 12" are great, possibly their best release ever. The sleeve condition is not so good. There's large seam splits at the top part. The vinyl looks clean. I love this band so much that I had to get an upgraded copy, so I'm selling this one. Took me a while to find another copy! Note: The price is actually less than my cost(7500 Yen).

Maniac "Killing For Pleasure" 7" EP - Rentaracket, 1984, UK, Booklet, (RKT 1) - $30
Metal-Punk Maniac! Pre-Anathema(from the Motorhate comp.) For fans of Onslaught, Sacrilege, War Wound etc.

Midnight Resurrector "Solid Solutions" 7" EP - HG Fact, 2003, Japan, (HG-174) - $5
ex-No Side. Heavy, fast and totally raging '80s U.S. styled hardcore like Poison Idea or Final Conflict. Well worth checking it out. Some of the members also play in this awesome crossover thrash band called Technocracy.

Molugu "Romance" 7" flexi - Self, 1984, Japan, Insert, (PLM-042) - $68
One of the very few non-ADK Records releases that was produced and engineered by Tam(The Stalin/Typhus/G-Zet/ADK), among the other records including the Masturbation flexi, Sodom cassette, and New Roteeka flexi. Very rare and great flexi by this obscure band from the "ADK Omnibus Vol.2" EP. Awesome Japanese HC here. 7 tracks of dark, metallic, and aggressive as hell HC that sounds comparable to The Execute, Gas, Ziga, Rebel, LSD, or Bitousha. Brilliant.... fucking brilliant!

Motor-Vation, The "Not For Sale" 7" flexi - Self, 1987, Japan, (No Cat. #) - $5
'80s Japanese styled punk rock ala The Star Club etc. Completely unknown band...

Mass Genocide "S/T" 7" EP - Blurred, 1998, Japan, Clear blue vinyl, (Blurred-019) - $5

Narcosis "S/T" CD - Self, 2000, Peru, (No Cat. #) - $9
Early obscure Peruvian HC/Punk circa '85. One of the first Peruvian HC bands among some others like Ataque Frontal(Guerrilla Urbana), Leusemia, Autopsia(pre-Gx3) etc. Contains the "Primera Dosis" 18-track demo tape('85) and various unreleased live/studio stuff including the Sociedad Anónima(pre-Narcosis) material as well. Ultra-raw and primitive sounding HC/Punk that's comparable to Lixomania, early Cólera, Gx3 etc. I don't think this CD is available anywhere in the U.S. It's probably out of print, too.

Narumi & The Misters "Groovin' Queen And Friends" LP - City Rocker, 1988, Japan, (CR-00S) - $15
Featuring the ex-Gas singer Narumi. Rockin' melodic punk rock for fans of late Gas, Nickey & The Warriors, New Walls etc.

(Nickey & The) Warriors "Wild Cherry" 12" - S.E.X., 1986, Japan, (SEXY-001) - $30
Awesome, female fronted Japanese punk rock. ex-members of The Stalin, Baws etc. The songs are catchy as hell!! This 1st 12" is a bit harder to find than their other releases like the "Born To Ride" EP, "Dreams" LP etc. One of my all-time favorite bands!(and Nickey's fucking HOT...!!)

Nickey & The Warriors "Dreams" LP - Captain/Wild Cherry, 1987, Japan, Insert & tour flyer, New/Unplayed, (CAP-0058-L/Wild Cherry 001) - $28
Unplayed stock copy! Catchy as hell, female fronted Japanese punk rock. Featuring ex-members of The Stalin, Baws, Mohawks, and a super cute singer Nickey. Great band! This copy comes with a tour flyer.

No Lip "S/T" 7" EP - T.P.C.(Tokyo Punks Club), 1986, Japan, Insert, (TPC-1103) - $15
ADK Records styled, dark and fast-pased metallic punk! Roger from Dead Cops/SiC was in this band. Appeared on various foreign and domestic comp's. Released on the same label that also put out the Corruption Of Peace LP, Masami(Ghoul) EP, Warriors EP etc. Thought I'd waste a bit of my time again and go on writing some interesting(?) episode regarding this lesser-known Tokyo-based label(with a criminally embarrassing name...) coz probably not so many people know about it. This label was ran by a dude from the legendary punk shop called "Jim's Inn" and Sakevi's Beast Arts was originally part of T.P.C. Records(they used the same contact address) The "M.A.N." LP was planned to be released on T.P.C., however it ended up being the first Beast Arts release as Sakevi decided to establish his own label in the last minutes, although the LP was already advertised in the T.P.C. release ads.

Outo "Shoujiki Mono Wa Bakawo Miru" LP - Selfish, 1987, Japan, Original, Insert, (BEL-12017/PLATE-02) - $65
Both the vinyl and sleeve are in a superb condition like new, even still has the original outer poly sleeve from 23 years ago. You won't find a better copy than this. The original Selfish Records pressing of this classic LP. I guess it was actually the split release by Selfish and S.O.B.'s Low-Brow Records, as the center labels have both catalog numbers. "PLATE-01" is the S.O.B. "Leave Me Alone" 7"/12".

Outo "No Way Out" 7" EP - Selfish, 1988, Japan, Insert, (AMI-7033) - $35

Outo "S/T"(Official Discography) LP - Specialized Fact, 1999, Japan, 1000 pressed, Large glossy booklet, (SFAN-003) - $45
Limited release on Specialized Fact, the Osaka-based label ran by some of the ex-Outo and S.O.B. members. Comes with a very nicely made, 10" x 10" size glossy booklet with tons of rare old photos, biography and gig flyers by a great Japcore artist Tom. Also a killer sleeve artwork done by him as well. An almost-complete discography of one of the most important bands in the Japanese HC history. Contains their '84~'88 materials incl. all the 3 EP's, 6 tracks off the 1st LP, tracks from the "Hardcore Unlawful Assembly", "Thrash Til Death" and "My Meat's Your Poison" comp's. Released also on the CD format, but this vinyl edition was limited and sold out fast. Long out of print and hard to find.

P.C.G.(Poisonous Cross Gibbet) "Last Sheet" 7" flexi - Line, 1984, Japan, (Line-003) - $28

Paintbox "Honou / Sabaku" 7" EP - HG Fact, 1998, Japan, Insert, (EX-/VG), (HG-101) - $25

Para-Phrase "Su-De-Ni!?" 7" Flexi - Beat Generation, 1981, Japan, Clear blue flexi, (Ino 1-ban) - $30
Total Friction worship!!!!!! Reminds me of Speed, too!! I don't have much infos about this unknown early Japanese punk band, but according to the "Punk Tengoku" guide book(by Doll), they were from Sapporo city. Quite rare to see this style of bands from that area in the early '80s. Great raw primitive punk rock with a sharp edge. I'd totally recommend this to anyone who likes Friction, Mirrors, Speed, Lizard or the other Tokyo Rockers related bands from that era.

Plutonium "Forest Is Crying" 7" EP - Dan-Doh, 1998, Japan, (Dan-Doh 015) - $5
Fucking pissed-off, brutal and chaotic Japanese thrash HC!! Don't know much about this band but I'm pretty sure they're from Osaka, appeared on the "Chaos Of Destruction 2" compilation that Kawakami has compiled and also had a split EP with another unknown Japanese band from Osaka that I can't remember the name of... some unknown band with a Ferocious X dude.

Poison "Kick Rock" LP - Selfish, 1988, Japan, Insert, (BEL-12026) - $60

Poison Arts "Kick Rock" 7" flexi - Rockin' F, 1989, Japan, Promo/freebie, Photocopied sleeve, (No Cat. #) - $10
Re-recorded version of their killer title track tune from the classic 1st LP on Selfish Records. Much faster and better than the original version! Sounds really awesome. This track is exclusive to this flexi and can't be heard elsewhere, not even on the official discography double CD. Please note that the sleeve is a photocopy.

Pretty "Neo Damaging Noise III" CD - Fuck The System, 2006, Japan, Obi, (FSR-003) - $10

Rabid "Total Chaotic Attack" Tape - E.A.S.T. Peace, 2001, Japan, Ltd. to 500 copies, Pro-copied blue cassette, (EPCA-001) - $25
'80s Swedish HC style ala S.O.D., Disarm, Absurd meets distorted Kyushu noisecore!!! The only release ever(and it's very rare) by this killer short-lived band from Kyushu. Wish they've released at least one record! Noisy and chaotic HC attack like the title says, cool artwork and excellent production. Perfect!!!

Real "Real 4" 7" EP - ADK, 1984, Japan, 2 x booklet, (ADK-20E) - $35
Produced, engineered and released by Tam(The Stalin/Typhus/G-Zet/ADK Records). I like most of the Real releases, but this 7" and the 8" on Ducasse label are their best in my opinion. Solid and hard sounding punk with sharp guitar. Probably one of the most overlooked, yet harder to find ADK releases. Never seen it for sale elsewhere outside of Japan. Real was one of the very few ultra-political activist bands in Japan among the others with the similiar political stances(anti-emperor, anti-war, animal rights) like Theze, The Ballad, Nué, HDW, Hellnation etc. I remember some of them getting arrested in the chaos of the riot when the Showa Emperor died(X-day) in '89. This copy comes with the two East Asia Anti-Japanese Armed Front booklet inserts(not all copies came with them).

Reality Crisis "Deformed Society" 7" EP - MCR, 1999, Japan, 1000 pressed, Insert, (MCR-141) - $35
Long out of print 1st EP by one of the best current Japanese crust bands. For some reason this one is a bit tough to find.

Refuse "Punk Save The World???" 7" EP - Beer City, 2001, Japan, 500 pressed, (Beer City Records-01) - $25
Lo-fi noisecore. Includes a Gai/The Swankys cover song "Little Star". The center labels say "Beer Cider Noise!!!!!". 6 tracks includes the song titles like "Noise Never Die!", "The Fuck Song" etc. Self-released on the band's own Beer City label, not to be confused with the U.S. label with the same name.

Refuse "Control Noise" Tape - Damaging Noise, 2003, Japan, Pro-copied cassette, (Damaging Noise Records-001) - $17
The sleeve has a cool Gai "Extermination" rip-off artwork. Not to be confused with the U.S. label with the same name.

Reptar "S/T" 7" EP - Homewreckords, 2008, US, 200 pressed on blue marbled vinyl(out of 300 copies total), Insert, (HWR-01) - $4
Thrashin' sXe hardcore from Albany, NY. These guys are now called Coughing Fit, I think.

Robbing The Cradle "Blue Note/Echoes" 7" EP - Battle Company, 198?, Japan, New/Unplayed, (FEI-8032S) - $9
Self-released 1st EP by this obscure KBD-style, wavey and rockin' punk rock band from Kyushu. They've done a few LP's after this EP. ex-Sheena & The Rokkets!

SDF(Screaming Damned Fossils) "Une Saison En Enfer" 7" EP - V.O.D.D., 1995, Japan, 500 pressed, Pink marbled vinyl, (V.O.D.D.-002) - $17
Straight-forward, fast and simple Japcore that sounds kinda similar to Outo, DonDon or Systematic Death, but with a bit more metallic guitar riffs. This is their self-released 2nd EP. Never seen the first one before.

S.D.S.(Societic Death Slaughter) "Live In Automatic Country" Tape - E.A.S.T. Peace, 1999(?), Japan, Pro-copied cassette, (Sore Core MT002) - $25

Samé "Cyborg-Keikaku" 7" EP - Premium, 1988, Japan, (No Cat. #) - $45
Rare and unknown release on Ikka-Shinju's Premium Records. Very obscure one here. Includes 6 tracks of fucking killer metallic Japcore!! As far as I know it's the only non Ikka-Shinju release put out by their label.The band's only ever release besides the "I'll Gather Up" tracks. Wicked full-color sleeve artwork. Note: The band name is supposed to be pronounced in the Japanese way "Sāmé"(means a shark) not like the English word "Same".

2nd Degree "S/T" 7" EP - Self, 2004, Japan, 500 pressed, (No Cat. #) - $7
The Bristles, The Last Survivors, Persevere, '82 U.K.(No Future/Riot City) styled Japanese HC/Punk. Their 2nd EP and CD are out on HG Fucked.

Sekiri "Love Star" 12" - Alchemy, 1988, LP, Japan, Insert, (ARLP-023) - $10
All-teenage-girl punk rock from Kyoto. This 12" sounds way more punkish and solid than their other releases. Reminds me a bit of Kyaah. "Sekiri" means "dysentery" in Japanese.

Severed Head Of State "Anathema Device" CD - Hardcore Holocaust, 2003, US, (HHR 011) - $5

Shoichi Miyazawa "Kiristo Wa Umagoya De Umareta" 7" flexi - Political, 1981, Japan, (MIG-2502) - $78
Mega-rare release on the legendary Political Records by Michiro Endo(The Stalin). This one is actually much rarer than any of the other Political releases(The Stalin & Typhus), however it's quite unknown and obscure comparing to the others such as the "Trash" LP or Typhus flexi. For the serious, die-hard collector of Japanese punk or The Stalin. Produced by Michiro and he also plays a guitar and drums on this flexi.

Slight Slappers "Change" 7" EP - MCR, 1997, Japan, Insert, (MCR-108) - $7

So What "Murder" 7" EP - Selfish/Dynamite, 1991, Japan, Insert, (EX-/VG), (AMI-7043/DON DON-009) - $38
Legendary Shizuoka-city Japcore! Produced by Minoru from Lip Cream. Split release by Selfish Records and Lip Cream's Dynamite label. This is one of the very few last Selfish releases that rarerly pop up for sale, like the Gauze 3rd LP('91), Death Side/Chaos UK split CD('93), Death Side 2nd LP('91), Assfort CD('91), Acid 2nd LP('91) etc. While most of their releases before '90 were pressed in the large quantity of a few thousand each or more, the later ones that came out a little before the label ended were pressed in the much smaller quantity and probably no represses either. Anyways, this last So What EP is awesome and is much better than their split with The Rustler in my opinion. 6 tracks of blazing Burning Spirits style, top-notch quality Japcore at it's best. Can't believe this was their last release though. The whole EP rules! They should have done a full-length LP with this last lineup before breaking up....!!!!

Sorto "1984-1986" 7" EP - Power It Up, 1992/2003, Finland, 500 pressed, Ltd. edition w/ orig. '92 sleeve & blank center labels, Insert & label postcard, (P.I.U. #6) - $7

Stalin, The "Stop Jap" LP - Climax/Tokuma, 1982, Japan, 2nd press, Orig. sticker on sleeve, Printed inner-bag sleeve, (CMC-2505S) - $38
This is the rare 2nd press on black vinyl that's harder to find than the red vinyl 1st press copies which seem to be more common.

Stalin, The "Allergy/No Fun" 7" EP - Climax/Tokuma, 1982, Japan, (CMA-2033) - $25
The killer classic tunes on this EP. Includes a B-side track that's not on the LP's. The title track is the 7" version.

Stalin, The "Go Go Stalin" 12" - Climax/Tokuma, 1983, Japan, Obi, (CMC-1) - $25

Stalin, The "Nothing/Suigin" 7" EP - Climax/Tokuma, 1983, Textured sleeve, (CMA-2043) - $38
This one is actually a little harder to find than their two other 7"s on Climax Records.

Stalin, The "Mushi" Picture LP - Climax/Tokuma, 1983, Japan, Obi, (CMC-2512) - $45

Stalin, The "Dendou Kokeshi/Tempura Rock" 7" flexi - Ing,o!/Lucky Strike, 1984, Japan, (ING-004) - $30

Stalin, The "Fish Inn" LP - B.Q., 1984, Japan, Original, Promo flyer & insert, (BQL-1) - $40
This copy comes with a super-rare promo flyer(original!). The flyer has a live photo, tour dates, B.Q. Records phone number and the LP release/Ing,o! zine infos. This is the original pressing on Michiro's B.Q. label, not the '86 reissue on J.A.P./Japan Records which is the remix version with extra guitars, bass and keyboard added by Bill Laswell, Sonny Sharrock etc. This B.Q. original recording and the remix version sound very different. The "Fish Inn" remix LP was the very first Japanese record Bill Laswell has ever produced. He's an well-known producer who has also worked with Motorhead, Ramones, Iggy Pop, P.I.L., Bob Marley, Mick Jaguar, Yoko Ono, Ryuichi Sakamoto etc. I personally enjoy listening to both versions, however most of the Japanese fans say that the additional instruments and over-remix work ruined the original sound. Also, the B.Q. issue has a completely different sleeve artwork than the reissue. Only the ltd. mailorder copies came with a flexi and that one is much harder to come by.

(Stalin, The) Ing,o! No.4 - Zine & The Stalin 7" flexi - Political Project, 1984, Japan, A4 size, 31 pages, (ING-004) - $75
Mega-rare infamous zine published by The Stalin singer Michiro Endo and his Political Project(Records). Complete with the "Dendou Kokeshi/Tempura Rock" flexi!!! The flexi has a picture sleeve insert. This is "The Stalin Special" issue w/ photos, centerfold poster, interview, "Vietnam Legend" full-page ad, MRR reprint etc. Very rare to find The Stalin photo(centerfold poster) with their early '84 line-up incl. Michiro, Jun Bleed(The Willard), Teruya Ogata and Jun Inui. Perhaps this is the only one ever appeared in the zine. Large A4 size, thick pages.

(Stalin, The) Michiro, Get The Help! "Help!(Take 2)" 7" flexi - B.Q./GNP(Grotesque New Pop), 1985, Japan, Promo-only/freebie, Clear red flexi, (SPS-2) - $10

(Stalin, The) Michiro, Get The Help! "Odyssey 1985 Sex" 7" EP - GNP(Grotesque New Pop), 1985, (K07S-10052) - $15
Post-The Stalin project band under the name of "Michiro, Get The Help!" with Masayuki Ono(Allergy/The Stalin) and Jun Shimoyama(The Roosters). The 12" version of this single isn't so hard to find, however this lesser-known 7" version is pretty rare. Would be a nice addition to The Stalin/Michiro Endo collection. The front cover artwork was done by a cult Japanese comic artist Suehiro Maruo, who also did The Stalin "Mushi" picture LP artwork. GNP was the newly established label by Michiro.

(Stalin, The) Michiro Endo "Hasan" LP - GNP(Grotesque New Pop), 1985, Japan, Insert & obi, (K28A 742) - $15
Post-The Stalin solo project band(The Gay-Nou Brothes) of Michiro with Jun Shimoyama from The Roosters(Burst City!) etc. The first full-length release under the concept of what he called "Grotesque New Pop", an essential mix of punk/new wave/post-punk, plus the usual Michiro craziness. A year after the several GNP releases, he formed the new bands Video-Stalin and Paranoia Star. While Video-Stalin was around for about two years and very active, as far as I know Paranoia Star played only a few gigs and released one LP which contains a few re-recorded early tunes of The Stalin.

Stalin's Daughter "Oktoberfest" 7" EP - IE, 1988, US, Insert, (IE 003) - $5
Gotta love the band name. I know absolutely nothing about these guys. Here's part of the review taken from some online blog coz I'm too lazy to even listen to it: Philadelphia punk rock from 1988. One reviewer called them "The Most Hated Band In Philadelphia", a badge the band wore with pride. Outspoken vocalist Rick D said what he thought, and the band didn't play scene politics.

Star Club, The "Anoko Ni Hitomebore" 7" flexi - Club The Star, 1984, Japan, Gig freebie, (The Star Club No.7/CSR 005) - $35
Mega-rare gig freebie-only flexi! 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 until 1984(Except the live version of this song appeared on the "Go To Hell" acetate 7" that they've pressed less than 5 copies in 1977.) Although this studio track isn't available on any of their other records, it's one of the most well known and loved S.C. tunes to their older fans. The flexi was given away free to fans only at one show at Loft in 1984(Says "Not For Sale" printed on it). Some online resources say that it was the first flexi to be given away through their "Cosa Nostra" fan club(existed '85~'90), but that's surely incorrect.

State, The "No Illusions Reunion" Tape - Take 'Em Up, 2003, US, Hand-written on chrome tape, (Take 'Em Up #1) - $5
Official limited tape-only release containing the '03 reunuion show(at the State Control Record Shop) by this classic MI hardcore band. Excellent sound. Includes a Discharge cover song "State Control".

This is a very rare, special 5-track EP that was only available through mailorder from the label. It's sometimes called the "Untitled" EP. Not sure of the exact pressing info, but only a couple of hundred copies were pressed as I heard. Not all copies have the sleeve and center labels stamped. This copy does.

Swankys, The "Very Best Of Part 2" 7" EP - Dogma, 1986, Japan, (DOG-15) - $78

Swankys, The "Last Punk Show"(+ Studio Trax) LP - Kings World, 1996, Japan, 800 pressed, Obi, (KWLP-7001) - $65
Contains their '89 last show at Loft, Tokyo on Side A(33 RPM) and the two previously unreleased studio demo tracks "Fucker" and "Pop Rocker" on Side B(45 RPM) as bonus tracks. The "Last Punk Show" was originally a cassette-only release on Kings World from '89. This is the official vinyl issue and is limited to only 800 copies like the Gai "Damaging Noise" ltd. 12". Cool sleeve artwork. This one is pretty rare to find. Would be a nice addition to any Swankys/Gai/Kyushu punk collection.

Tear It Up "S/T" 7" EP - Havoc, 2000, US, Grey marbled vinyl, (HC 7024) - $3

Tetsu-Arrey "Force" 7" EP - HG Fact, 1996, Japan, 1st press on black vinyl, (HG-063) - $20

305, The(The Three-O-Five) "S/T" 8" flexi - Beat Time, 1984, Japan, New/Unplayed, (A-305) - $7
Catchy, melodic and fun punk rock with sharp and trashy rockin' guitar riffs. Completely unknown band here. Some of the members went onto form The Pogo and Kenzi.

324 "Soulwinter" 7" EP - HG Fact, 1999, Japan, (HG-104) - $15

Transformer(Kikeiji + Masturbation) "Manoeuvre" 12" - Drug Store Club/Balcony, 1986, Japan, 1st press, Insert, (DSC-1001) - $48
Kikeiji + Masturbation!! Transformer was a short-lived ADK-related band consisited of ex-Masturbation singer Hiryu, ex-Kikeiji/Aburadako guitarist Hiroshi, and Tatsushi who played in both bands. 100% ADK Records sound! Think of a cross between Kikeiji, The Stalin, Sekinin-Tenka, and Masturbation. Awesome dark and solid sounding hard punk, but Transformer's songs are more uptempo, punkish and not as gloomy as Masturbation. I'd say they're much more comparable to The Stalin or Kikeiji. Great record. Worth checking it out if you're into the ADK related and similar bands. Needless to say this 12" is very rare and really tough to come by. It's the original 1st pressing on black vinyl. Oddly the 2nd press is on the picture disc.

Unholy Grave "Terror" 7" EP - Blurred, 1997, Japan, Ltd. clear red vinyl, (Blurred-12) - $8

Until The End "S/T" 7" EP - Equal Vision, 2000, US, Insert, (EVR 58) - $3

Vaseline "Ick Wees Von Nischts!" 7" EP - T.V.G., 1994(?), Germany, 500 pressed, Grey vinyl, 2 x sticker, (TVG 2) - $5
Early T.V.G. Records release. A review taken from the In Noise We Crust blog: First 7" of retarded German noisecore/grind/punk blaha. Much sloppier than their great split with Yacopsae, but still a lot of charm. Released on the great TVG label, back when you could count on all of their releases being great. 13 trax of short, fast and furious. This is fucking raw.

Vid-Sex "S/T" 7" EP - Void, 1985, Japan, Etched center labels, (Fuji-001) - (Trade or Offer)
Trade prefered. The only ever release by this legendary punk band from Tokyo that's quite well known in Japan. The music is so awesome and essential. Kinda like in the vein of Typhus or The Stalin, but Vid-Sex sounds much rawer and faster. Fast, raw, aggressive and loud as hell... some quality '80s Japanese punk rock is what you get on this fantastic 4-track EP. It's so great that I wish more people have heard their music, but I know this one is actually really tough to find these days even in the Tokyo area. Some of the Vid-Sex members are known to be the ex-members of Oxydoll, which is a super obscure band from Nagoya that's another legend in the Japanese punk history. Oxydoll was the first band of now the famous drummer Tatsuya Nakamura(The Stalin, Masturbation, The Star Club, The Genbaku Onanies, Nickey & The Warriors, F.O.A.D., Blankey Jet City etc.) who currently plays in a few bands including Friction(!!) and Touch Me with Michiro Endo from The Stalin(he is actually playing most of The Stalin's special reunion shows this year and early 2011). I've heard that the ex Vid-Sex singer currently does vocals for the band called Slip Head Butt with Muka-Chin(Judgement/Death Side) and another old member of Death Side. Their CD is out on Bloodsucker Records but I haven't heard it yet.

War Crime was the very first crust styled HC band from Hiroshima. Great mix of Scandi-styled crust and traditional Japcore. Split release by Bloodsucker Records and the band's own Pikadon label. This 7" almost never pops up for sale nowadays. Awesome sleeve artwork by Sugi!

Willard, The "Will" Picture 12" - Captain, 1986, Japan, Clear PVC sleeve, (CAP-0036P) - $12
Original Captain Records pressing(later reissued by Více Records). This is the pic. 12" issue of their '85 gig freebie flexi, with an extra track added. Also, two of the songs(3 Years & D-Day or Lost Day) on this 12" originally appeared on the rare "L.C.D.D."(La Caduta Degli Dei) 1st flexi from '83. Totally killer, speedy and hard-hitting punk tunes. The 1st flexi was produced by Michiro Endo(The Stalin) and came with his infamous "Ing,o!" zine. The Willard was formed in '82 and broke up once in '83, then the singer Jun joined The Stalin as a guitarist and the drummer played in The Execute, until they were reformed in '84. There's The Stalin interview in "Ing,o!" Vol.4 with Jun as their new member.

Willard, The "Lightning Scarlet" 2 x 7" EP - Eastworld, 1986, Japan, Gatefold sleeve, (T65-1096/97) - $15
Awesome 4-track double EP includes the exclusive live version of their early classic tunes "Punx Sing A Gloria" and "Outlaw". Very nice packaging as well. The singer Jun joined The Stalin as a guitarist and the drummer Kyoya played in The Execute while The Willard was temporary broken up in 1984.
