They were planned to be on the unreleased Skeleton Records comp 8"("Sieg Heil Skeleton") with Gasmask, Crime, and Woodpeckers. 4 tracks incl. "Fuck The Clumsy Metal", "Tears Of '56" etc. These guys must have really hated metal as the chorus part on the song "Fuck The..." goes like "Metal kids, fuck off!!". Rumors that this song is about Randy Uchida from G.I.S.M.

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.

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

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.

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."

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.

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
Fast and straight-forward, Shizuoka-city Japcore in the vein of Outo or Systematic Death. Late '80s Selfish Records type. On the same label that also put out the So What/Rustler split EP the same year.

Innocents "Masho" 7" EP - D.I.S., 1989, Japan, Insert, (D.I.S.-004) - $58
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).

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.

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.
