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.

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.

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.

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

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...
