They were planned to be on the unreleased Skeleton Records comp 8"("Sieg Heil Skeleton") with Gasmask, Crime, and Woodpeckers. 4 tracks incl.

Commented by Ishiya(Forward/Death Side) on the sleeve. Awesome, distorted noise HC from Oita, Kyushu. Distorted vocals and fuzzed-out guitars over the crashing HC tunes. Very limited and hard to find 1st EP by this long-running band. Sounds totally different from their past materials like the "Oita City HC" comp tracks on MCR. Although their songs aren't exactly in the noisecore vein, I'd recommended this EP to fans of any noisy distorted Japanese HC or early Disorder/Chaos U.K.

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 early Swankys, Gai, Gess, Gedon, No Cut, Chaos CH, Dust Noise or early Disorder/Chaos UK. You know the drill. Very rare self-released flexi.

Dessert "World Of Fantasy" 7" EP - Ranch, 1998, Japan, 1000 pressed, Clear vinyl w/ clear pink mixed, Stamped & numbered sleeve(# 461), Insert, Flyer, New/Unplayed, (Ranch-01/SEL-One) - $28
The singer Ryuji used to be in the legendary bands Disarray, Bitousha and also this great obscure band Mino 5 with Chelsea(Deathside/Paintbox) and Katsuta(Tetsu-Arrey). 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).

Dirge "Scarred Forever" 12" - Crust War, 2006, UK, Japanese release, Booklet, (Crust War-029) - $5

Disturb "For The Live" 7" EP - Discrete, 199?, Japan, 500 pressed, (DIS-015) - $25

Dødsdømt "Løgny" 7" EP - Against The Grain, 1992, Norway, Poster sleeve, insert & printed inner-bag sleeve, (ATG-0.5) - $15

Doku-Buta(Poison Pig) "Go! Go! People" 7" flexi - Self, 1985, Japan, (No Cat. #) - $48
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."

Ease, The "Saiki" 8" flexi - Akafuku Organization, 1984, (AKA-04) - $30
Ultra-obscure rarity here. The Ease was a female fronted punk band from Nagoya and the singer was doing this well-known zine called "Me-Her" that often covered The Stalin and Masturbation. I'd recommend this flexi for fans of the '80s Japanese dark psychic punk bands such as Kikeiji, Aburadako or Sekinintenka. Another unknown ADK styled band which ended up putting out only one flexi and disappeared.

Execute, The "The Antagonistic Shadow" LP - Selfish/13 Grave/XXX, 1988, Japan, Printed inner-bag sleeve, (BEL-12001/Grave-3301/XXX-12001) - $55

Exit Hippies "S/T" 7" EP - Paank Levyt, 2003, Japan, 700 pressed, (Paank-015) - $28

Expose "S/T" 7" EP - Self, 1997, Japan, 500 pressed, Insert, (VG-/EX), (Expose Records-01/ECR-001) - $15
Total early Disorder/Chaos UK/Swankys/Gai worshipped noisecore. Distorted, fast, sloppy & chaotic! Fucking ace!!!
Note: The vinyl is warped. Plays completely fine.

Exterminate "Find Out" 7" EP - MCR, 2003, Japan, 1100 pressed, Clear red vinyl, (MCR-180) - $8
Ripping Japcore from the Nagoya area. Featuring the Reality Crisis and Hazard members.

Follow Fashion Monkeys "S/T" LP - Clymer, 1985, US, Insert, (CLY 001) - $18
16 trax of fast and furious hardcore. The song titles like "Hardcore Rules", "TV Religion" and "Degeneration X", you know what to expect. They're on the Mystic Records comp and their later 7" was produced by Ian MacKaye. Here's the review taken from an old MRR issue: "Surprise, surprise, surprise! Full-on melodic thrash, varying speeds, and Keith Morris-type vocals creates an interesting combination of early DC and SoCal HC. Lyrics rant, rave, and communicate thought-provoking ideas and attitudes. Both refreshing and inspiring, all packed into 16 songs. Recommended."

Framtid "Under The Ashes + 8 Track EP" CD - Self, 2004, Japan, Insert, (VCTM 1) - $20

Freedom "Last Revolution" 7" EP - AA, 1984, Japan, 1000 pressed, Poster sleeve, (AA-005) - $55

Friction "I Can Tell/Pistol" - Pass, 1980, Japan, (PAS-204) - $45
One of the most important bands in Japanese punk history among the other bands from the Tokyo Rockers era like Mirrors, Lizard, Mr. Kite, Boys Boys, Aunt Sally, SS, Ultra Bide etc. Rare 2nd EP on the legendary Pass Records. Both songs are good but especially the B-side track "Pistol" is an awesome loud punk rock tune.

Fucked Up "Generation"(Mix Tape Vol.1) Cassette - Self, 2005, Canada, Ltd to 500 copies, Insert, New/Unplayed, (No Cat. #) - $10
The insert says: A self-released tape-only project. A compilation of live, exclusive, rare and unreleased tracks from Fucked Up and FU-World bands.

Gasatsu(Crime Fighter) "Rude Beat" 7" EP - ADK, 1984, Japan, 1500 pressed, (ADK-19E) - $45
Produced, engineered and released by Tam(The Stalin/G-Zet/Typhus/ADK Rec.) 1st EP by this Tokyo based band that was on the "ADK Omnibus 2" the same year. The drummer also played in L.S.D.(on their 1st flexi) and another member was in Nira-Kodomo. Contains the 9 tracks(!!) of rough and speedy Punk/HC tunes.

Gastunk "Dead Song" LP - Více/Crown, 1985/86, Japan, Insert, (25EC-1010) - $38

Griffin FZ "Retaliation" 7" flexi - Self, 1989, Japan, (Otoko-001) - $75
Pre-Zone!! Obscure Shizuoka-city Japcore band. This flexi is very rare and hard to come by. The only ever release by them besides a great split demo with Exdead. Heavy-hitting, speedy and metallic Japcore in the tradition of those great '80s Shizuoka-city bands(Deadless Muss, So What, Rustler, Innocents etc.)

Guillotine Terror "No God" 7" EP - Battle Planning, 1991, Japan, Insert, (BP 91-01) - $18

HCP(Hard Core Poznan) "Anti Drugs" 7" EP - Resistance Productions/International Hardcore Movement, 1989, Poland, 1000 pressed, Hand #'d poster sleeve, New/Unplayed, (RIP 027) - $20
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. This should appeal not only to Polish HC fans, but also to those who dig any Scandinavian, Italian, Brazilian and Japanese HC/Crust as well!! Man, this is seriously some powerful ripping shit!! Released on a Swiss label. Unplayed old stock copy of this rare obscure EP.

Heartwork "S/T" 7" EP - Dewa/Cadmium Sick, 2002, Japan, (DR-007) - $3

Hell Driver "Monday Quaterback" 7" EP - Axxe, 1990, Japan, (AXEP-2) - $25

ex-Deadless Muss. One of the best Shizuoka city Japcore bands among with So What, Rustler, Deadless Muss, Griffin FZ(pre-Zone), Mental etc. Rare and hard to find 8-track EP on Deadless Muss' label D.I.S. Records.

Kruw "The Punx" 7" EP - Partners In Crime, 2004, Japan, Insert, Out of print, (PIC-023) - $8

Kuro "Revival Of Death" 7" EP - Kings World, 1996, 666 pressed, (KWAP-001) - $45
Contains the 4 killer tracks exclusive to this release, incl. the previously unreleased songs "Black Empire" and "Hell Dive" plus the re-recorded studio and live version of their classic tune "No More No". These tracks sound so damn aggressive and violent, the way Kuro should be!! Recorded in 1996 when they got back together for a short period. There was a plan on releasing the album but it never happened. 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 "Slapdash" 7" EP - AA, 1985, Japan, Die-cut sleeve, 2 x sticker & insert, (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 two red stickers which is actually part of the sleeve design(a sticker appears thru the die-cut window).

Kyojinbyo "Fukkatsu" 7" EP - Museum, 1987, Japan, (HC-900106) - $35

Laughin' Nose "When The Laughin' Nose Go Marchin' Inn!" 7" flexi - AA, 1985, Japan, Promo-only/freebie, (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 flexi's from that time. Has a great catchy punk rock tune and a cool ass sleeve artwork, too.

Less Haze "Break The Law" 7" EP - Skull, 1991, Japan, (Skull-01) - $8

Mannequin Neurose "S/T" 7" flexi - R.B.F., 1983, Japan, (RBF-103) - $45
The Stalin worship!! Excellent release here. This 1st flexi(w/ orig. singer) sounds completely different from their later releases(which suck badly...) on City Rocker etc. What you get here is The Stalin influenced, hard, solid and speedy punk with awesome sharp guitars. This flexi is VERY rare and hard to find(actually took me quite a while to get myself a copy, too). If you like the bands like The Stalin or Typhus, you'll love this.

Masturbation "Shinigao" 7" flexi - Abnormal, 1984, Japan, (Abnormal P-01) - $68

New Walls "S/T" 8" flexi - Line, 1984, Japan, (Line-002) - $25
Like the harder version of Nickey & The Warriors. Great rockin' hard punk rock with really cool female volcals! Featuring ex-members of Poisonous Cross Gibbet and Headless.

Nickey & The Warriors "Dreams" CD - Captain, 1987/89, (CAP-1041-CD) - $20
Much rarer CD version of the 1st LP. Many of the original Captain Records CD's(Lip Cream, Gas etc.) are even harder to find than the LP's. Those were released right before the label disappeared and not so many copies of them were pressed.

O-Geletzt Special Issue - Photo Zine - O-Geletzt, 1987, Japan, 50 slick pages & color covers, (No Cat. #) - $20
It's kinda like the photo zine that MRR did back in the '80s except this one's got a little better quality/production. Lip Cream, The Bad Lots(ex-Ghoul/Masami), Gasatsu(Crime Fighter), New Roteeka, Kenzi, The Blue Hearts, The Pogo, Loud Machine, The Strummers etc. There's also a cool pic of Jha-Jha(Lip Cream) showing his funny underwear that he's wearing right next to Masami's face.

One River "A Breathing Will" 7" EP - Revive, 2001, Japan, Poster sleeve, Printed inner-bag sleeve & Sticker, (THEP-1001) - $5
5 tracks of intense and raging thrash HC. Totally manic. Don't let the band name fool you. Fans of the bands on 625 definitely should check this out. Nice packaging.

Order "Punk Navigation" 7" EP - Overthrow, 1997, Japan, 700 pressed, (Overthrow-018) - $58
Total Disorder worshipped raw noisecore!! The early Order stuff with the original singer sounded completely different from their recent releases. Very rare and hard to find 1st EP with 6 raw tracks including the song title like "Noise It Up". For fans of early Disorder/Chaos UK, '80s Kyushu noisecore(Gai, The Swankys...), Chaos CH, Dust Noise etc.

Order "Taep'o-Dong" LP - HG Fact, 2002, Japan, 500 pressed, Insert, (HG-158) - $68
Excellent 1st full-length album. This one is way better than their recent 7"s in my opinion. The vinyls were limited to only 500 copies. Hard to find!

Order "Saru" 7" EP - HG Fact, 2007, Japan, 1500 pressed, (HG-213) - $18

P.C.G.(Poisonous Cross Gibbet) "Last Sheet" 7" flexi - Line, 1984, Japan, (Line-003) - $30

Question "S/T" 7" EP - Black Noise, 2007, US, New/Unplayed, (BN-702) - $5
Their 1st EP with 8 tracks of extreme HC terror ala Nausea, Sacrilege, or early Discharge. Featuring Saira(ex-Detestation/Atrocious Madness) on vocals!!

Rabid "Total Chaotic Attack" Cassette - E.A.S.T. Peace, 2001, Japan, Ltd to 500, Pro-copied blue cassette, (EPCA-001) - $28
'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!!!

Raise Cain "Return To Many Shocks And Panic..." 7" EP - Self, 1989, Japan, Original 1st press, Insert, (RC-001) - $45
Very rare '89 original self-released pressing with full-color original artwork(glossy pocket sleeve) and insert, not the later German reissue on Amok Records from the early '90s. This original one almost never pops up for sale... Excellent traditional Japcore in the vein of Nightmare, Bandit, Crück, Death Side, Warhead etc.

Real "Real 4" 7" EP - ADK, 1984, Japan, 2 x booklet, (ADK-20E) - $45
Produced, engineered and released by Tam(The Stalin/G-Zet/Typhus/ADK Rec.) 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).

Rebel "S/T" 7" flexi - Out Works, 1983, Japan, (Out-Works 0002) - $130
Mega obscure rarity. The only ever release by this early Japanese HC band from Sendai city, featuring the Bitousha members Hiromi and Hideki. A female member Hiromi later moved to Tokyo and did vocals for the legendary Bloodberry/Bradbury(Tam's last band, ex-G-Zet)!!!!! One of the tracks from this flexi appeared on the "Killed By Hardcore 3" boot comp LP in 2002. The Execute(esp. early stuff) styled, dark and fast HC with The Stalin("Mushi"-era) or Typhus influence. All the songs are so fucking great. Somebody needs to bootleg the whole flexi...

Result "I Can Go Die" 7" EP - MCR, 1997, Japan, Insert, (MCR-109) - $38

Resurrection "S/T" 7" flexi - ADK, 1985, Japan, New/Unplayed, (ADK-23S) - $25
Produced, engineered and released by Tam(The Stalin/G-Zet/Typhus/ADK Rec.) They had ex-member(s) of Hentai Club(the pre-Aburadako band with Paruo from Sha-London/Sex Imagination Drugs/Incest Rec.)

Rinjyu-Zange "Who's The Founder?" 7" EP - Adventure Family/Nouzui, 1988, Japan, (AFR-008) - $28
Drivin' fast Japcore with a slight metallic touch. Comparable to Googol Plex, Chicken Bowels, Brain Death, DonDon, Systematic Death or Mad Conflux. They also had a good split EP with Disclaim. Split release by Adventure Family and DonDon singer's Nouzui Records. Cloudy(Front Guerrilla/Last Bomb/G.I.S.M.) is listed on the thanks list.

Rise From The Dead "Haraguro" 7" flexi - Bron, 1990, Japan, w/ sticker, New/Unplayed, (Bron RFD-1/GIGA-1) - $20
Original/early line-up featuring the ex-members of Crow, Outo, Chicken Bowels and S.O.B. This is their best work in my opinion.

Robbing The Cradle "Blue Note/Echoes" 7" EP - Battle Company, 198?, Japan, New/Unplayed, (FEI-8032S) - $10
Obscure KBD style, wavey and rockin' punk from Kyushu. Rare self-released 1st EP. ex-Sheena & The Rokkets!

Rustler "S/T" 7" flexi - D.I.S., 1988, Japan, Insert, (D.I.S.-005) - $58
One of the best Shizuoka city Japcore bands among with So What, Innocents, Deadless Muss, Griffin FZ(pre-Zone), Mental etc. Rustler had a split EP with So What. Very rare 1st flexi on Deadless Muss' D.I.S. label. 10 tracks!!

SS-20 "I Never Change The Life" 7" EP - Self, 1993, Japan, 300 pressed, New/Unplayed, (No Cat. #) - $35
Yes, this is SS-20 from Japan, not those other bands with the same name from Mexico, Poland, Italy or France. They've existed from '87 and probably broke up not too long after this release which is the only record they've ever done as far as I know. Awesome solid sounding Japanese hard punk in the vein of The Stalin("Stop Jap" era), with a bit of ADK touch. Sounds very similar to The Stalin, actually. The songs are pretty catchy yet hard and strong. The chorus parts on the song like "Kill or Killed" and the title track are so damn good! The guitar riffs sound so shorp. Fucking brilliant. I love this style. Man, it was released in the early '90s but all the songs totally sound like if they were from the mid '80s. Could easily be on ADK or City Rocker Records if this came out back then. This 7" was self-released by the band themselves and sold only at their shows and an old shop in Kanagawa that one of the band members worked at. That makes it nearly impossible to find after 16 years of its release. Some copies came with a tiny release show flyer says "This EP is our final warning. Strictly limited to 300 copies only, sold at our future shows & mailorder. No repress!"(in Japanese).

Shoichi Miyazawa "Kiristo wa umagoya de umareta" 7" flexi - Political, 1981, Japan, (MIG-2502) - $98
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.

Smash Your Face "Loose Times, Light Times" 7" EP - Prank/Ride On, 1998, Japan, (Prank-029) - $3
"dirty, nasty, fuckin' high energy" mixture of early LA punk (ala Germs, Black Flag, Circle Jerks, The Dwarves, and The Stooges) and early Japanese hardcore such as Lip Cream.

Sodom "S/T" 7" flexi - Trans, 1985, Japan, Gig freebie, (Trans-01) - $38

The reformed Ghoul(a.k.a. Ghoul II) changed the name to Sqwad in '89. All the members except a bassist are from the last Ghoul line-up(on the "Game Of Death" comp.) Late Ghoul styled, dark and metallic HC. Released on Poison Arts' label Slice Records.

Stalin, The "Stop Jap" LP - Climax/Tokuma, 1982, Japan, 2nd press, Orig. sticker on sleeve, Inner-bag sleeve, (CMC-2505S) - $45
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 "Romantist/Light My Fire" 7" EP - Climax/Tokuma, 1982, Japan, (CMA-2030) - $38
Classic 3rd 7" with their most well-known song "Romantist"(a.k.a. "Romanchisto" or "Romanticist"). Includes a B-side track that's not on the LP's. The best live photo of Michiro on the front cover.

Stalin, The "Allergy/No Fun" 7" - Climax/Tokuma, 1982, Japan, (CMA-2033) - $28
The killer classic tunes on this EP. Includes a B-side track that's not on the LP's.

Stalin, The "Stalinism" 12" - Independent/B.Q., 1987, Japan, Insert, (Independent 009ML) - $38
Official collection of their early classics. Compiles the "Dendou-Kokeshi" 1st flexi(Political, 1980), "Stalinism" EP(Political, '81), "Vacuum" mailorder-only bonus flexi for the "Fish Inn" LP(B.Q., '84), "Chicken Farm Chicken" off the "Welcome To 1984" comp LP(MRR, '84).
Note: There's a scratch that doesn't affect playing.

(Stalin, The) Ing,o! No.4 - Zine & The Stalin 7" flexi - Political Project, 1984, Japan, A4 size, 31 pages, (ING-004) - $80
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) Video-Stalin "Ultra Sex Man/24 jikan ai no Fascism" 7" flexi - BQ, 1987, Japan, Plain blue sleeve, (BQS-011) - $30
Super-rare, gig freebie-only flexi that was given away at their first show at Loft prior to the VHS and LP releases. This flexi is totally unknown, even to those Michiro/The Stalin fanatic collectors!! A few hundred copies made? Nearly impossible to find. You won't see this again...

Star Club, The "Anoko ni hitomebore" 7" flexi - Club The Star, 1984, Japan, Gig freebie, (The Star Club No.7/CSR 005) - $38
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 a wrong info.

State "No Illusions" 7" EP - Reagan Era HC, 2001, US, Insert - $3 Originally self-released on Statement Records in '83.

Suicide "S/T" 7" flexi - Bizarre, 1984, Japan, Insert, Clear red flexi, (No Cat. #) - $30
Produced by Atsushi Kaneko from The Stalin. Self-released 1st flexi. I thought their 2nd EP "Warning For The World Punks" is very good but this flexi is even much better. Like an old zine review says, I can definitely hear The Stalin influence and the song "Heroes(Your Dirty Face)" sounds like one of the songs on The Stalin's "Stop Jap" LP!! Really good stuff. Very mid '80s Japanese punk sounding release.

Suicide "Celebration" 7" EP - Captain, 1985, Japan, (CAP-0003-E) - $10

Swankys, The "Rock'n'Roll History Fuck Off!!"(Neo Damage) 7" flexi - Kings World, 1986, Japan, (KK 001) - $40
It's actually their 2nd 7" and the "Best Of 2" EP on Dogma came out several months after this one. Also this is the very first Kings World release.

Swankys, The "Best Of Lifestyle" 12" - Kings World, 1989, Japan, 1000 pressed, Clear vinyl, Clear PVC sleeve, (KK 008) - $68
Contains the 3 tracks from the "This Is My Lifestyle" 1st EP('85, KPP Rec.) on Side A and the 3 tracks by Gai on Side B. All the songs are in their early noisy HC punk style. This is probably the second hardest to find Swankys/Gai records of all. Rarely seen for sale outside of Japan.

Sweet Weapon "Overheat" 7" EP - Adventure Family/Nitro(Water Land), 198?, Japan, (NTR-01) - $15
Quite unusual release by Adventure Family Records. This sounds more like KBD stuff. Uptempo and a bit wavey punk rock. Adventure Family put out mainly HC bands from the Yokosuka area and also Water Land did the Janky/Mad Conflux split and I believe the Front Guerrilla 7" as well. I know nothing about this band though.

Systematic Death "Flash Back" 7" EP - Selfish, 1986, Japan, Oversized outer sleeve, (AMI-7006) - $85
Complete copy with both sleeves! Comes with an extra printed outer sleeve that's often missing. Apart from minor wear at the top part of the oversized outer sleeve, everything's in a superb condition!! Very nice copy.

305, The(The Three-O-Five) "S/T" 8" flexi - Beat Time, 1984, Japan, New/Unplayed, (A-305) - $8
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.

Rare original '89 CD issue of their first and the best album ever. Contains an extra non-LP bonus track. All the late '80s CD releases(like Gas, Lip Cream etc.) of Captain Records are way harder to find than the original LP's.

Willard, The "Lightning Scarlet" 2 x 7" EP - Eastworld, 1986, Japan, Gatefold sleeve, (T65-1096/97) - $20
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.

+++ SPLIT +++

Abraham Cross / Struggle For Pride - 7" EP - Paank Levyt, 2003, Japan, 700 pressed, Extra outer sleeve, Yellow marbled vinyl, (Paank-013) - $38
Crazy ass brutal split. On this EP, S.F.P. plays some ultra intense and distorted noisecore crust like a mix of Gloom, Collapse Society, Exit Hippies, Confuse and all that fantastic NOIZE. Raw and noisy as fuck. The usual Doom/ENT/Sore Throat styled stench noise crust by Abraham Cross.

Ashes / Crowd "Hostility" 7" EP - Overthrow, 1991, Japan, (Overthrow-02) - $25
Early release by Overthrow Rec. Both are unknown but pretty good Japcore bands from Nagoya city. The Crowd side especially stands out here. Totally blazing metallic Japcore that reminds me of Burning Spirits style with a slight crust touch.

Very rare 3-way split CD which was only available during the Abstruct Madness/Noise Rock 2001 tour by these 3 bands together. Delta was a short-lived band by all the ex-S.D.S. members except a drummer was ex-Iconoclast. Awesome, ultra-fast and metallic HC. Their songs sound fucking sharp and aggressive as hell. I personally like them even better than S.D.S.!!! The 1st EP was planned to be released on MCR, but sadly they broke up before releasing anything besides a few comp appearances on the Mangrove label CD, the Destroy 'zine comp 12"/CD etc. The Delta tracks on this split are "War Machine", "Sons of Distraction" and "Statik Love-Statik Loud". All of them are killer!!! Rocky does a kick-ass Japanese cover of Ultra Violent "Crime For Revenge" and one original song. Nice packaging and punkish cover artwork.

This is the "original" 1st pressing from the late '80s(or '90?), on black vinyl with a pink-ish sleeve. Also the center labels are metallic silver. Only 200 of these "real" ones were made back then. These are rarely seen for sale nowadays. More recent reissues were pressed on various colors of vinyl with a black & white slick sleeve and the white center labels. Who knows how many copies of those recent ones were really pressed(definiately way more than 200, although almost everywhere online states so).

Total Fury / The Jury - 7" EP - Gloom, 2007, Japan/US, 500 pressed, Ltd U.S. tour press, Gray marbled vinyl, Hand-numbered sleeve(# 352), Insert, (Gloom-040) - $7

The title was named after the series gigs that was organized by Gloom back in the early to mid '90s. Compiles some of the best and earliest Osaka raw noise crust bands. Rare appearance by Condemned featuring Jacky from Crust War, who'd later join Gloom and Framtid. Defiance had Jhonio(Gloom/Defector), Habi(Gloom) and Kako(Warcry). None of these 4 bands have ever released anything beside the demos and being on the comp's!

Gagize / Re Zist / Sword / Weedy Eggs - Awesome obscure Japcore comp by the DonDon singer's old label. Re Zist and Gagize are known for their great flexi's on Half Alive Records. Sword and Gagize are also on the "Shodoku Gig" LP on Selfish. The front sleeve photo has a crowd of punks from some show and there's young Ishiya from Death Side smiling in the middle. I got my own copy in '88 and just recognized his face in the photo after 20 years.

Bastard / Asbestos / Don Don / SiC / Complete / Sweats / Sicilian Blood / F.V.K. / Idora - All the bands' recordings are exclusive to this rare comp. The Bastard material is not even included in the official discography CD. Different version of "Wind Of Pain"!! The Sicilian Blood songs are very good on this comp., with that Gauze sounding, in-your-face Japcore style. Oddsness label was made only to release the "Smashing Oddsness" 8" EP(Deathside, Crück etc.) and this LP. Sweats featured the ex and later members of Rocky & The Sweden, Headless, Systematic Death, Idora etc.

I'll Gather Up(Musical Friend Omnibus) - 8" EP - Musical Friend, 1989, Japan, Poster sleeve, (MFR-01) - $30
Z / Crime / Same(Sāmé) / The Gestapo / Human Decay / Bronze Hell / Genocide / Lost Fights / Knock It Off / Guillotine - The Z material is the old recording from their noisecore-era!! And it's way better than the "Violence Action" flexi tracks and the sound quality is better, too! "Same" is a metallic Japcore band that had the EP out on Ikka-Shinjyu's Premium Records. I don't have any infos on rest of the bands, except Crime who put out the "Nuclear Blood" flexi in '85. I know for sure Lost Fights appeared on some unknown European comp EP from the late '80s that I can't remember the title of.
Note: There are two visible scuff marks on a vinyl, but plays fine without any skips. Just some minor surface noise.
