Please read all the information and order instruction stated above before ordering!

(   A ~ M   )

AA Records Book #1 - Zine - AA/Pony Canyon, 1991, Japan, Full-color covers, Pro-printed, (No. Cat #) - $20
These were the limited, promo/freebie zines given away to those who pre-ordered the "AA Records, We're Back!" series reissue CD's in 1991. Doesn't actually say "AA Records Book" anywhere on it but I remember that's what it was called in the old Doll magazine ad and the zine originally in a sealed bag with a little sticker on it which had "AA Records Book" printed on it. Contains mostly the reprints from the first issue of "P.O.W." and just a few rare early AA Records ads.

AA Records Book #2 - Zine - AA/Pony Canyon, 1991, Japan, Full-color covers, Pro-printed, (No. Cat #) - $20
This second one is much nicer than the other one because it has more AA Records ad reprints besides the reprinted pages from the second issue of "P.O.W."

AGE "Inside Darkness" 7" EP - Dewa, 1997, Japan, 2 x insert, (DR-001) - $18

Abraham Cross "Peace Can't Combine" LP - Crust War, 2002, Japan, Insert, (New/Unplayed), (CRUST WAR-011) - $45

Addiction "Fuhai-Ningen No Gomi"(腐敗人間のゴミ) 7" EP - MCR Company, 2003, Japan, 1000 pressed, Insert, (MCR-2003) - $12
Quite different from their earlier releases. What they play on this EP is a completely ADK Records inspired, '80s Japanese style dark punk, with the weird-ass, insane lyrics like Aburadako!! And, with The Stalin-ish scummy song title like "Hentai Trash"(!), you know what to expect. All their earlier releases, the first and second EP's and the split demo with Chaos CH are great too. This one is a must have for all fans of ADK and The Stalin fans!! Love it.

Amebix "Who's The Enemy" 7" EP - Spiderleg, 1982, UK, (SDL 6) - $45

Amen "Feikki" 7" EP - Crash Mag, 1991, Finland, Fold-out sleeve, (Crash-2) - $5
Classic Finnish crust from the early '90s. One of the best examples of the '90s Scandi crust bands.

Anode "S/T" 2 x 7" EP - Dan-Doh, 2001, Japan, White & black vinyls, Gatefold sleeve, (DAN-DOH 044) - $7

Assfort "Egoist Guidance" VHS - Flying High, 2001, Japan, Promo-only, (No Cat. #) - $4

Auto-Mod "Toui Koe"(遠い声) 7" EP - Telegraph, 1983, Japan, (TEL-0012) - $15

B-5 (Punk's Not Dead!) - Photo Book - Sanwa Shuppan, 1985, Japan, Paperback, Full-color covers, 100 pages, B5 size, (No Cat. #) - $65
Extremely rare and totally amazing live photo book featuring lots of classic '80s Japanese punk/hc/wave bands as well as a few obscure ones. 2~4 pages by each band. Color and B&W photos taken circa '83~'84. The front and back covers are The Stalin. Kuro(4 pages), The Stalin(4 pages + covers), Aburadako(4 pages), Sodom(ADK-era!!!), Bradbury(a.k.a. Bloodberry, Tam's last band! = G-Zet + ex-Bitousha/Rebel/Sekinintenka members), The Star Club(5 pages), Kyaah, Kenzi, The Willard, Zelda, P-Model, Malin Conia, The Continental Kids, Cock C'nel, Machizo Machida(Inu), Sadie Sads, Bunretsu etc. Most, if not all, of these photos have never been published elsewhere. Full-color covers and glossy pages. Also contains the fantastic 3-page ADK Records article/discography(incl. detailed pressing infos & release month/year) with Tam's comments, and some fanzine reviews. Probably the best thing about this book is that it has the ultra-rare and awesome looking live photos of early Sodom from their ADK era, and ofcourse Bradbury!!(Hiromi looks fucking hot in these pics!) If you're a serious ADK fan/collector, you know these bands are the very important part of the whole Japanese punk history and how hard to even find their photos anywhere. These are some of the very few existing officially published photos by them. Killer large color live shots of Bradbury's female singer Hiromi(ex-Rebel & Bitousha) and a few small shots of Tam, which must have been taken right before he disappeared. This book was made by a small publisher that mostly did the underground sub-culture and porno magazines. Oddly, there used to be a lot of non-major porno mags covering the punk stuff over there. They were not widely distributed and you could get them only from the porno vending machines(!) often seen in Japan back in the '80s. Michiro Endo appeared as a model in some of those obscure mags and videos during The Stalin years!

Bathtub Shitter "One Fun" 7" EP - Power It Up, 2001, Japan, 1st press of 900 copies on black vinyl w/ black sleeve & black labels, (P.I.U. #3) - $4
Japanese manic grindcore veterans. 7 trax recorded in '99, including a S.O.B. cover song, a Terrorizer cover song and a live track off the "Hardcore Marathon 2" comp.

Bathtub Shitter "Angels Save Us" 7" EP - Necro Obscure Terror/Rusted Lock, 2002, Japan, 2nd press w/ black cardboard sleeve, Hand-numbered(# 0825) edition of 1000(500 on black vinyl), Label flyer, (New/Unplayed), (N.O.T. 001/LOCK 001) - $4

The first release by this Japanese crust band that's been putting out tons of records.

Blind Justice "S/T" 7" EP - HG Fact, 1995, Japan, 1000 pressed, Label catalog flyer, (HG-028) - $5
Pre-Envy. U.S. hardcore style.

Boris "Japanese Heavy Rock Hits Vol.1" 7" EP - Southern Lord, 2009, Japan, 500 pressed on black, Shrinkwrap(w/ orig. sticker) attached to heavy weight cardboard sleeve, (LORD 108) - $5

C.O.S.A. (Cache Of Strategic Arms) "Strategic" 7" EP - Self, 1992, Japan, Insert, (LM-2704) - $25
Pre-Effigy and Reality Crisis! This EP was actually self released by the band and I think MCR just did a distribution. No actual MCR catalog number stated anywhere on this release and it's not listed on the label discography page either. Dark, metallic and raging Japanese crustcore. Awesome 6-track EP!! Some of the songs are from their demos. The ex-C.O.S.A./Effigy guys currently play in Axewield.

Charisma "First" CD - VAP/Tears Music, 1997, Japan, Obi, (VPCC-86022) - $9
Consisted of ex-Grave Yard singer and ex-Dilenma members. These guys were associated with the bands like Rapes, Danse Macabre, Color, Nightmare, R.O.M. etc.... yeah... THAT side of the Osaka HC scene, straight outta prison....(!?) Metallic HC style that's not too far from Rapes, Grave Yard, Dilenma or late Ghoul, but Charisma sounds much more straight forward and punkish, though. If you've ever listened to the awesome Dilenma 7" from '95(that one is hard to find but really good, btw), think of some weaker, more-punk style vocals over that same metallic and thrashy HC tunes. That's how I would describe them, because the vocals are kind of generic. Their second album sounds more metallic and speedy HC and less punk.

Charisma "Second" CD - VAP/Tears Music, 1997, Japan, Obi, (VPCC-86028) - $9

Claysea "Slave State" 7" EP - Detonate, 2008, Japan, Clear blue vinyl, Out of print, (New/Unplayed), (DR-03) - $8
Shizuoka-city dirty stench crusties, no-shower 'til death.

Cobra "Wrong Way" 7" EP - AA, 1986, Japan, (AA-020) - $9

Cobra "Never Give Up" VHS - Public Red, 1989, Japan, (PR-0001) - $25
Very rare, limited VHS-only release(never been reissued on DVD), containing the live video footage of their great '89 reunion show in Kyoto, before the band signed to a major label and got HUGE. Featuring their best ever line-up with Naoki(ex-orig. Cobra & Laughin' Nose, now plays in SA) and Pon(ex-Nashi & Laughin' Nose, now plays in L.N. again). This is such a killer live footage. Professionally recorded and packaged. Self released on the band's own Public Red label. You won't find this again.

Comes, The "Power Never Die" 12" - Captain/Dear, 1986, Japan, Insert, (CAP-0033-M/DR-001) - $38
Well worth getting it for a hot picture of Chitose on the front sleeve alone! And, who said this album is bad?! Really heavy, aggressive and metallic, panty-sniffin'-punk! Mmm... I smell something yummy scummy. Okay, it's defintely NOT a "bad metal record"!! It's just in a different style from what they sounded like earlier. I mean, very different but yeah, I dig this album anyways. I also like Virgin Rocks and even The Wretched, too!

Comes, The "No Side" CD - Dig Worker, Japan, 199?(200?), (DWCD 2 09224 2) - $28
Jap boot on the mysterious Dig Worker label. Rumor says that the legendary, not-so-straight edge punker Mitch SxE(R.I.P.) a.k.a. Mitsuhiro "Mitch-sensei" Ohashi(R.I.P.) was secretly involved in all the Dig Worker and Retrospective releases over the years, including The Swankys "Very Best Of Hero", GISM "Detestation", "M.A.N." and "Human Condition"(CD!), "Outsider", "HC Unlawful Assembly" etc. Actually, he could be the only one behind those expensive, but decent quality boot CD's(much better than JPC) that seem to be getting harder and harder to find these days in Japan.... No copies were distributed overseas as far as I know. Another rumor tells me that Mitch "SeX" Ohashi(1964-2011 R.I.P.) had to run away to the country side when some scary people were after his ass. He somehow managed to hide himself in the middle of nowhere for a while, but unfortunately.... amen.... (P.S.) To avoid any confusion, Mitch Ohashi is NOT Jail Ohashi(ex Seikima-II guitarist. He's the cool one.)

Comes, The "No Outsider"(No Side + Outsider) LP - Hirohito Era Hardcore, 2009, Japan, Insert, (New/Unplayed), (HEHC-1) - $13

Complain "Make A Mistake" 7" EP - 625 Thrashcore, 2002, Japan, (625-90) - $3
Old school HC from Sapporo, Japan. From the label info: When WxHxN played with these guys in Sapporo, I almost dropped a load in my pants. Young kids, playing metallic, straight-forward Japanese HC... like the style of the old Selfish Records bands mixed with new school elements. They have great DIY ideals, are really nice people, and will crush you with how they execute Japanese hardcore.

The singer Ryuji used to be in the legendary bands Disarray and Bitousha in Sendai. He was also the singer for the Tokyo-based Japcore band called Mino-5 with Chelsea(Deathside/Paintbox) and Katsuta(Tetsu-Arrey/Extinct Government), and put out the CD on Selfish Records and appeared on the "Enjoy Your Youth..." comp LP. The Dessert guitarist and bassist were/are in Sekinin-Tenka, Bradbury(a.k.a. 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 Japcore ala Death Side, Judgement, Crude, Nightmare, Warhead or Forward. Awesome throaty vocals by Ryuji and the metallic guitar riffs. They did a great Disarray cover song on the CD version of this release. This 4-track EP is a totally raging, heavy-hitting HC smasher. The vinyl and packaging look nice, too. It's on a clear vinyl with some clear pink mixed. Comes in a glossy perforated package/sleeve. It's an unopened, old stock copy.

Funx "Königs Tiger" 7" EP - Pafe, 1983, Japan, Oversized 10" sleeve, Insert, (SK-502) - $55
What an amazing band! This is such a killer EP. Think of The Stalin, Sekinin-Tenka, ADK Records styled, dark and mid-paced punk meets lo-fi noise punk ala Flipper. Also I hear the slight Tokyo Rockers(esp. Friction or Speed) influences in some of their songs. What you get on this 5-track EP is a fine mixture of all that good, early Japanese punk 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 that I'm able to offer it for sale here. It was released on Pafe Records, a small label from the countryside of Japan(Toyama pref.), that put out some other cool records but mostly the new wave bands, maybe a couple of other punk bands. Every single release done by this label is so damn rare and hard to find. So, I might not be able to get another copy again. This is definitely a hidden treasure of Japanese punk history. The 7" EP comes in a large, 10" size cardboard sleeve.

Gas "Sweet Emotion" 12" - Jisatsu Label, 1986, Japan, Label newsletter insert, (GL-007E) - $45

Gastunk "Gastunk Box 1983-1988" 2 x CD Box Set - Love, 1991, Japan, Hard carton box package, Booklet, (Love Records GT-001/GT-002) - $40
Originally released as the limited edition, vinyl box set(w/ bonus VHS tape, sticker etc.) that was sold only at their last show in '88. This is the very rare and hard to find, double CD edition in a hard carton box package(similar to the package for the GISM SoniCrime 1st press CD). It's probably even harder to find than the original vinyl box set. The CD's contains the "Mr. Gazime" EP, "Geronimo" EP, "To Fans" tour freebie EP, "Three Sex X'mas" 3 x EP, "In The Fire"(live) flexi and "The Vanishing Signs" 12". 

Genbaku Onanies, The (原爆オナ ニーズ) "I Will / I Don't" 2 x 7" EP - Trippin' Elephant, 2001, Japan, Gatefold sleeve, (TERNG-026) - $5
The '01 limited double EP release by one of the longest running Japanese punk bands. Out of print.

Genoa "We Got A Bomb"(Thrash Live In Savegery Special) 7" flexi - Strange, 1990, (TLIS-01) - $8

Great Invaders "Henshin-Cyborg"(変身サイボーグ) 7" EP - Cyber, 1997, Japan, 800 pressed, Clear vinyl, Insert & 3 x flyer, (CYE-001) - $10
The 4-track 7" by this obscure Japanese band. This is some ass-fucking, harsh HC shit that fucks your crusty ears like a drill-spinning rabbit dildo! Anybody familiar with Scamp from the late '80s~early '90s?? It's necessary to mention this legendary band if I wanna go on a rave about Great Invaders. Scamp appeared on the well-known "Discharged" comp that many of you may be already aware of, which is the Discharge tribute album(w/ ENT, Raw Noise, Disaster, SDS, CFDL etc.) from the early '90s. Scamp was one of the first bands that the hyper-drummer Iron-Fist Tatsushima played in. The drummer who play/played in many bands including Crow, G.I.S.M., Die You Bastard!, DxCxR, SSORC, Puppets, The Magnets and more. Great Invaders' music is quite similar to Scamp(note: their 2nd album and later), as the band claimed to be highly influenced by them. Brutal and extreme HC with a slight metallic edge, and with that awesome Masami-style, crucial throaty vocals. The early U.K. crust bands such as E.N.T. or Doom come to my mind. I must note that one definite unique thing about Great Invaders or Scamp is that they featured the slap bass(!), yep, that huge slappin' bass that all the psychobilly bands use. How many other HC bands featuring the slap bass?! Well, I can't think of any, except this another great Tokyo-based band called Hellbent that played the similar style, and needless to say, they also had a huge Scamp influence. I guess these three bands played with both HC/Punk and psychobilly bands, however, the music wise they sound nothing like psychobilly in my honest opinion, except that they had the slap bass. The only thing is that the bassist slap the shit out of the bass in hyper-sonic speed that you can't really tell they're playing the slap bass....! The live shows must have been wild though. As far as I know, in Japan it's still common to see the various bands from both scenes(the psycho scene is big over there) playing gigs together these days, which I think is pretty fucking cool. Perhaps the bands like Great Invaders, Hellbent and Scamp inspired them doing so. In fact these three bands played a few shows together when Scamp did the reunion shows a few years back! Wish I could see them cuz I always liked Scamp.

Griffin "The Phantom Of The Shocker" 7" EP - Kagai Mousou, 1988, Japan, Orig. on black vinyl w/ insert, (Kagai Mousou 011E) - $35
Rare original pressing on Gudon's Kagai-Mousou Records, not the '97 clear vinyl reissue on Real Deal/MCR. It's their 1st EP from when they were still playing dark and metallic HC. Early lineup featuring Osamoon from NightmareGriffin's early stuff sounds completely different from their later punk rock/street punk style. Back then they were playing gigs with the other local HC bands from Osaka like S.O.B., Outo, Nightmare, Rapes, Danse Macabre etc.

Griffin FZ "Retaliation"(a.k.a. "Stain Pollution") 7" flexi - Self, 1989, Japan, (Otoko-001) - $45
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 '87 split demo tape with Exdead. Heavy-hitting, speedy and metallic Japcore in the tradition of those other classic '80s Shizuoka bands ala Deadless Muss, So What, Rustler, Innocents(Zamza), Mental etc. Completely unknown, but an awesome band!

Honey Deep Wet! "Tokyo Auschwitz" 7" flexi - Cage, 1986, Japan, Clear red flexi, (OP-003) - $35
Female fronted '80s anarcho punk from Osaka. HDW was one of the very few political activist bands which was pretty rare to see in the Japanese punk scene back then. Several other well known(in Japan at least) bands with a similar political stance include Real, Theze, A-Musik, and Nué from Tokyo. HDW was highly influenced by the U.K. anarcho punk movement, Crass Records bands, and the singer was in a close contact with Colin from Conflict. However, musically HDW's songs were much more in the punkish vein than those Crass Records or U.K. anarcho punk bands. The title track "Tokyo Auschwitz" is a killer, fast-paced hard punk tune that reminds a bit of The Stalin. Where the chorus part goes "No more Auschwitz!" is so powerful and great. This flexi is actually pretty rare and hard to find even in Japan. Self-released on the band's own Cage Records. Not quite sure of the correct catalog # as the sleeve does say "003", however the flexi shows "001". Two versions of this release exist. The band gave most copies away free without a sleeve, then there's also some mail order version with a red sleeve which is even rarer. This copy is the one with a sleeve. Another Cage Records release that I know of is this great "Cage Omnibus : No!" comp LP with HDW, No Lip(feat. Roger from SiC/Dead Cops), Real, and MerryGoRound. According to an old Cage Records ad in the Doll magazine, there's supposed to be the second HDW flexi released, but I've never seen that one.

Homostupids "The Glow" 7" EP - My Mind's Eye, 2006, US, 500 pressed, Orig. 1st press on pink marbled vinyl, (New/Unplayed), (MME 003) - $5
Lo-fi primitive hardcore from Cleveland, feat. the singer Steve from 9 Shocks Terror.

Isolation "S/T"(a.k.a. "Love, Peace and Soya") 7" EP - Radical East, 1999, Japan, Orig. Japanese press w/ folded yellow sleeve & slick black insert, Label flyer, (RE-21) - $10
The Nagoya-based band consisted of the singer who used to be a member of Order and the guitarist from Result. I think this band is completely underrated and sadly overlooked. The music is some solid, crusty metallic HC with male/female dual vocals, in the vein of Nausea, Detestation, Reality Crisis, Antischism, Hiatus or Amebix. I bet these guys were hugely inspired by a lot of the '80s~'90s U.K. and U.S. anarcho hardcore/crust bands. This EP was also released in the U.K. on Destroy Records. This one here is the harder to find, original Japanese pressing. This is great. It's really, really good, actually.

Judgement "No Reason Why" 7" EP - HG Fact, 1996, Japan, Insert, (HG-071) - $45

Judgement "Just Be..." CD - HG Fact, 2000, Japan, (HG-127) - $20
Long out of print, original Japanese edition on CD format. This one is pretty hard to find these days. Not very cheap in Japan either.

Kriegshög "Hardcore Hell" 7" EP - Heart First, 2008, Japan, 2nd press w/ extra track, Poster insert & black die-cut inner sleeve, (BEAT 041) - $7

Kuro (白) "S/T" CD - D.T.K.(Down To Kill), 1991, Japan, (DTK-0004) - $40
The official Kuro discography CD containing their 1st flexi, "Who The Helpless" 8", "Fire" 7" and the "1983 Gig" flexi. Rare original D.T.K. Records release from '91. Most of the D.T.K. CD's are quite hard to find. I still need the Cockney Cocks CD and The Comes CD myself. Anybody has them for trade? For your info, here's a list of the known D.T.K. releases: The Zolge "Russian Roulette" CD('90, DTK-001), The Zolge "Russian Roulette" ltd. 12"('90, DTKL-9001), Poison Arts "S/T" CD('90, DTK/SLICE-0002), Cockney Cocks "Night Of The Outrage" CD('90, DTK-0003), Kuro "S/T" CD('91, DTK-0004), V.A.

Records since their '90 CD release. What's "DTK-006"???

Kyaah (キャ→) "Slapdash" 7" EP - AA, 1985, Japan, Glossy die-cut 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)

Kyojinbyo (狂人病) "Black Current Hard Coar" 7" flexi - Museum, 1987, Japan, Stamped & numbered sleeve, (HC-87931) - $55
Awesomely embarrasing way of misspelling "hardcore" by this awesomely amazing hardcore band. The perfect example of what happens if you're too busy sniffing glue to go to a school to learn anything. Shhh... don't tell anyone that was the case for the 95%(!?) of Japcore dudes in the good ol' 1980s. Fuck'n Panx Nevaaaaa Die.

Kyoaku-Kyojindan (恐悪狂人団) "Catastrophe" 7" EP - Climax, 1989, Japan, (MAX-4102) - $20

Laughin' Nose "Never Trust Women" 12" - AA, 1985, Insert, (AA-014) - $38
Their 2nd 12" on AA Records. Contains some of the old L.N. songs that I've always loved, like "No War", "Teenager", "Never Trust Women" etc. I personally like this one better than the "Pussy For Sale" LP. Both are good though.

Lip Cream "Kill Ugly Pop!" CD - Captain, 1986/89, Japan, (CAP-1014-CD) - $45
This is the rare original Captain Records pressing, not the recent reissue CD. Most of the CD releases on Captain Records(like this one, the Gas "Reincarnation" CD, The Willard CD etc.) are much harder to find than the original LP's, as the label didn't press so many copies of their later CD or vinyl releases right before the end of the label around 1990 or so. Just a few additional infos about this label, since not much is known about them outside of Japan: Their LP releases have been repressed so many times and tons of copies of most of the LP's were made during 1985~1988. Captain was definitely the independent punk label, however was quite big like, let's say, the almost-major label like Epitaph. The label was part of the magazine publisher called JICC that was making this great monthly sub-culture magazine called "Takarajima"(Treasure Island) which was one of the very few "major" mags(among others like Doll or Fool's Mate) featuring a lot of the underground punk/hc/wave bands back in the '80s(later turned into the porn mag in the '90s...) For those who might or might not care, the sarcastic joke lyrics for The Swankys song "ノーギャラ"(a.k.a. "Pop Rocker", a killer tune by the way) is about Captain Rec./Takarajima, and one line goes like: "Senzuri magazine, Takarajima~~~♪♪!!"(The wankin' magazine, Takarajima~~~♪♪!!) Yes, some bands and fans thought the bands on Captain are "sell out". The funny thing is that this Swankys song is on the obscure Kyushu punk comp LP called "In The Panties" which was released on..... Captain Records!

Lolita No.18 (ロリータ18号) "Tori-Ningen"(鳥人間) CD - Nippon Crown, 2000, Japan, Digipak package, (CRCS-1012) - $3

Loser X "Underground Idiots" 7" EP - Snuffy Smiles, 2008, Japan, Insert & flyer, (snuff-104) - $3
Osaka-based, old school thrash HC like the early '80s D.C. and Boston bands. These guys also play in the similar hardcore band called Tone Deaf.

Midnight Resurrector "Solid Solutions" 7" EP - HG Fact, 2003, Japan, Label catalog flyer, (HG-174) - $3
ex-No Side and Brickbutt. Heavy, fast and totally raging '80s U.S. styled hardcore like Poison Idea or Final Conflict. Well worth checking out. Some of the members currently play in the awesome crossover thrash band called Technocracy. 

Milk Cow "S/T" 7" EP - Snuffy Smile, 1994, Japan, (snuff-005) - $7
Brutal Japanese hardcore in the vein of Infest or Youth Of Today! Don't be foolded by the stupid band name. The music is fucking hardcore.

Moudoku (猛毒) "Shōnan...Omae wa Dokono Wakame Jya!?"(湘南... おまえはどこのワカメじゃ!?) CD - Satsugai Enka Vinyl, 1993, Japan, 32-page booklet, (MURDER CD-1212) - $8
Another fucked-up, Satsugai label band featuring The Crazy SKB(of Kyoaku-Kyojindan, Hi-Technology Suicide, Headwasher, Kill, QP-Crazy, Thrash No.55, 4Dience Murder and many others) on vocals, and the other members from the various bands include Kyoaku-Kyojindan, Nira-Kodomo, Ningen Hormone, Final Count, Detroit etc. 42 trax of lo-fi, weird and crappy 'shortcut' hardcore/punk. Many of their "songs" reminded me of Honge-Honge or a bit of Psycho Sin. All the lyrics are just the nonsense jokes or parody of well-known Japanese movie stars, pop singers and such. "Moudoku" means "deadly poison" in Japanese.

JAN. 5TH 2013 (PART 2 : N~Z)

(   N ~ Z   )

Nausea "Smash Racism, Now." 7" EP - Boot, 1992, US, Pink sleeve, Insert, (No Cat. #) - $20
Old and hard to find German bootleg. Recorded live at CBGBs June 19, 1988. The sleeve says "Parts of the profits made from the sale of this record will be donated to a local anti-facist organization."

Nightmare "Footprints Of The Wind"(足跡) 7" EP - Blood Sucker, 1999, Japan, Insert, (BSR-053) - $15

Nikudan (肉弾) "S/T" 7" flexi - Lucky Strike/Ing,o!, 1983, Japan, (ING-003) - $20
Produced by Michiro Endo(The Stalin). The Stalin meets ADK Records styled, '80s Japanese punk ala Kikeiji, Aka, Aburadako or Masturbation. This is their 1st flexi(3 tracks) that was originally issued with Michiro's infamous Ing,o! zine. The first track "Seppuku" is a fast-pased, solid punk tune that reminds me a lot of The Stalin songs from the "Stop Jap" or "Mushi" albums. Insanely complicated and metaphorized, Aburadako-like lyrics that make absolutely no sense to me. Nikudan also had the split 8" with Gas. I've been looking for the "Proletariat-Sports" 8" EP by this band...!

No Value "Peaceful Violence" 7" EP - Under The Surface, 2009, Japan, (UTS-006) - $8

Nubile "S/T" 7" - ADK, 1983, Japan, 1000 pressed, (ADK-04S) - $35
Featuring ex-Typhus singer Ken Tanami and ex-Sadie Sads guitarist. He was the singer on the Typhus "Live Take" tape, after the first singer Izumi(Aburadako) left the band. Produced, engineered and released by Tam(ADK Records, The Stalin, Typhus, G-Zet/Bradbury etc.) Excellent 4AD-ish, post-punk/darkwave from Tokyo.

Nubile "Spyral Totem Toler Than East Poll" 7" EP - Wechselbalg Syndicate, 1984, (New/Unplayed), (WT-704) - $20

Oddball "Losing Face" 7" EP - Laboratory, 1996, Japan, 500 pressed, Insert, Blue sleeve version, (Laboratory Records 008) - $5
This one is pretty good. The Kyoto-based HC band with a huge D.O.A. and early '80s U.S. hardcore influences. Featuring a Constricted member. Rockin' driving fast hardcore/thrash tunes with a cool distorted vocals. One of the songs has a Dead Kennedys parody intro. I think this band played with D.O.A. when they toured Japan. This is their first EP and they also have another EP called "Sell Out" on Mangrove Records and the LP called "Hardcore '99" with a D.O.A. "Hardcore '81" parody artwork.

Outo "S/T" LP(Official Discography) - 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. Excellent production. Comes with a very nicely made, 10" x 10" size glossy booklet with tons of rare, old photos, biography and reprints of 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 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. This was released also on the CD format, but this vinyl edition was limited and sold out fast. Long out of print.

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

Paintbox "Raise The Capital" CD-R - Self, 2003, Japan, Ltd. mail order & tour-only release, Pro-printed full-color sleeve & back tray card, (No Cat. #) - $35

Pinocchio (ピノキオ) "Akubyodou"(悪平等) 7" flexi - Uramachi, 1996(?)/97, Japan, 110 pressed, Ltd. 2nd edition w/ different artwork on pocket sleeve & insert, (No Cat. #) - (Trade or Offer)
This is the super tough to find, limited version with the picture of a cop riding a bike(and getting a gunshot!) on the pocket sleeve, and with a lyric insert. Only 110 copies of this version were ever made, as it's indicated on the back side of the sleeve. The more-common(although, still pretty rare), first/standard edition with a completely different artwork on a fold-out sleeve was pressed in a larger quantity of 1000 copies, and was put out by the band's own label called Oozake Records. The lyrics are printed inside the sleeve and no insert came with the standard edition. This limited version was co-released by Uramachi Records(which I believe was a label ran by another Pinocchio member) and the record shop Base. I'm guessing that the band came up with an idea of pressing exactly 110 copies because 110 is the number for the police station in Japan, and assuming from the sleeve artwork these guys were big police fans. Rare, self-released 5-track flexi by this awesome Tokyo-based band from the mid '90s that you definitely don't wanna miss. Their music is like a more chaotic and rawer vesrion of the Selfish Records-era Gauze, plus that viciously violent feel of the '80s Japanese HC bands ala Kuro or Kyojinbyo. In my opinion, Pinocchio was one the best '90s Japanese bands although they're criminally unknown outside of Japan. Wish they've done a full-length LP. As far as I know, at least one demo tape exists, but I've never seen it before. I would love to hear it someday! The only other known release is a really cool, tour documentary comp video(also on Uramachi Rec.) that contains the live footages of Pinocchio, Gaizi, Ai, Liberate, Crusty Hi Charge etc recorded during the Pinocchio & Gaizi summer tour in '97. I don't think they put out anything else. The band was active for only a couple of years, I think. Some of the members went on to form Geshpenst and Sicks In Throat shortly after Pinocchio broke up. Yes, this flexi sure rips fucking hard!! All the songs are full of tension and energy. This is one defnite record you won't get bored of listening to. Highly recommended for any Japanese HC fans!!!!!!       

Poison Arts "Hi-Energy/Absolutely Hungry" 7" flexi - Slice, 1988, Japan, 1000 pressed, Glossy poster sleeve, Insert, (PLM-173) - $30

Reality Crisis "Deformed Society" 7" EP - MCR, 1999, Japan, 1000 pressed, Insert, (MCR-141) - $30
Long out of print 1st EP. It's on MCR but for some reason this one is a bit tough to find. 

Rise From The Dead "Haraguro" 7" flexi - Bron, 1990, Japan, (New/Unplayed), (Bron RFD-1/GIGA-1) - $20
The first and probably the best work done by this Osaka-based band consisted of Naoto(S.O.B.) on vocals, Motsu(Outo, Chicken Bowels & Half Years) on guitar, Mitchun(Outo) on bass and Taku(Crow) on drums. Formed in the late '80s. Yes, their later releases are pretty lame, I must admit that... I guess they played HC only up to the split EP('91) with Filthkick, when they still had the original line-up. I remember not liking their 1st album on Selfish Records so much when it first came out in the late '92. It still sounded HC but was kinda weird, I think. An unplayed, mint stock copy. (P.S.) If anybody wants to either sell or trade a ltd. promo/hard vinyl edition of this flexi, lemme know! I know the promo copies exist like the ones made for the S.O.B./Napalm Death split flexi.

Rocky & The Sweden "844" 7" EP - Blood Sucker/Rebelabel Planning, 1999, Japan, Insert, (BSR 046/REB 014) - $15

SA "Youth On Your Feet" CD - Submission, 1999, Japan, Obi, (SUBM-001) - $20
This self-released CD contains the tracks off the "Oi Of Japan" comp LP(AA Records, '85), a previously unreleased demo track "No Name"('84), a live track "Confound It"('86) and the '99 re-recorded version of their classic tune "Youth On Your Feet". The '99 track is from their first recording session/studio demo that was recorded right after SA got reformed in the late '90s, when they still didn't have the permanent band members. Jun Gray(ex-Sekinintenka, Bitousha, Bradbury & Kenzi) from Dessert plays the bass on this recording. I have no clue who the other two guys are. I think this '99 version sounds way cooler than the original "Oi Of Japan" version. Although the recording is pretty rough, the rerecorded version sounds much faster, rawer and more powerful. The best thing about this CD is those unreleased demo and live tracks you won't find anywhere else. The studio version of "Confound It" originally appeared on the amazing "I Get Position" 8" flexi in '85! If you've never heard that classic flexi, you're missing out something!!! I don't remember which songs but you can hear one or two tracks off this flexi on the "Nagasaki Nightrider" boot comp LP that came out in the '90s.

S.O.B. "Still Grind Attitude" CD - Toshiba EMI, 2003, Japan, Out of print, (TOCT-25147) - $30
Here's S.O.B.'s come back release with the new singer Etsushi. Contains 25 tracks. Their classic tunes from the Selfish~Toy's Factory label era re-recordeed with the new line-up. Like the title says it all, they're returned with the total grindcore style. For some reason, this CD went out of print not too long after its release and the band doesn't seem to be active lately.

Sadist, The "Seiri-Youhin"(生理用品) 7" EP - Vanilla, 1989, Japan, 800 pressed, (VANILLA REC-2) - $25
The Stalin and ADK Records influenced, great punk ala Kikeiji, Aburadako, Masturbation, Aka, Transformer or Sekinin-Tenka! They also have a flexi out on MCR in '86, but this 2nd EP is much harder to find. 800 copies were pressed. The songs on this EP still sound dark like their 1st flexi, but definitely more punkish with some killer razor-sharp guitar riffs. Crazy SKB(of Kyoaku-Kyojindan, Headwasher, Hi-Technology Suicide & Satsugai Enka Vinyl label) is credited as a guest recording member for this release! The EP title is "Seiriyouhin"(just Google it) and the large photo of a vibrator is on the front sleeve! How can you go wrong with this?? Check out the songs here!

Compiles their previously unreleased studio and live materials recorded during '81 to '84, plus the tracks from the super-rare 1st flexi.

Bloodberry) For fans of The Stalin(pre-Stop Jap), Typhus, The 4th International, The Sex Imagination Drugs and the ADK Records related bands like Aburadako, Kikeiji, Nurse, Masturbation, Transformer etc.

Stalin, The "Fish Inn" LP - B.Q., 1984, Japan, Original, Insert, (BQL-1) - $35
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. mail order copies came with a flexi and that version is harder to come by.

Stalin, The "Dendou-Kokeshi/Niku"(電動こけし / 肉) 7" flexi - SS Recordings, 2005, Japan, Ltd. reissue, Clear red flexi, Insert, (SS-5001) - $35
The official reissue of the 1st flexi, originally released on Political Records in '80. The original price of this and the "Stalinism" EP reissues were 1500 Yen each when they came out in 2005....! SS Recordings = The 'bottakuri' label.

(Stalin, The) Michiro Endo "Hasan" LP - GNP(Grotesque New Pop), 1985, Japan, Insert & obi, (K28A 742) - $10
Post-The Stalin solo project band(= The Gay-Nou Brothes) of Michiro with Jun Shimoyama from The Roosters(Burst City!) and some other dudes that I can't remember. The first full-length release under the concept of what he called "Grotesque New Pop", an essential mix of punk rock/new wave/post-punk, plus the usual Michiro craziness. A year after the several GNP releases, he started the two new bands Video-Stalin and Paranoia Star! While Video-Stalin was very active for about two years and released the two videos and one LP, which contains the original songs and a few re-recorded version of The Stalin tunes, Paranoia Star played only a few gigs as far as I know.

Star Club, The "Hot & Cool" LP - City Rocker, 1983, Japan, Insert, (CR-00E) - $30

Star Club, The "The Very Best Of The Star Club" Picture LP - Club The Star, 1987, Japan, Orig. 1st press on pic. disc w/ pink die-cue sleeve, 2 x insert, (CSR 00B) - $25
"10th Anniversary Limited Edition Album". It's a compilation of the tracks from their early releases, rare and previously unreleased materials, including the "Front Line/The Unknown Soldier" 7"('83), tracks off the "Club Take One" 7"('81), "Young Assassin" 7"('82), "Shut Up!" 7"('82), "Anoko Ni Hitomebore" freebie flexi('84), 3 tracks off the unreleased 7th and 8th 7"s, and the "Toll Gate Ahead"('80) rehearsal session.

Willard, The "Lightning Scarlet" 2 x 7" EP - Eastworld, 1986, Japan, Gatefold sleeve, (T65-1096/97) - $10
Great 4-track double EP containing the two studio tracks and the exclusive live version of their early classic tunes, "Punx Sing A Gloria" and "Outlaw". The studio version of those two songs originally appeared on their 2nd and 3rd 7"s that are pretty tough to find. Very nice packaging in a heavy cardboard gatefold sleeve. While The Willard was temporary broken up sometime in '84, their singer Jun joined The Stalin as a guitarist and the drummer Kyoya played in The Execute.

Willard, The "Mercy For The Rabbit" 12" - Eastworld, 1988, Japan, Insert, (T18-5013) - $8
One of my favorite Willard releases from the late '80s era. Great songs and great sleeve artwork.

Ashes / Crowd "Hostility" 7" EP - Overthrow, 1991, Japan, Insert, (Overthrow-02) - $20
Early release by Overthrow Records. Both are unknown but pretty good Japcore bands from the Nagoya area. The Crowd side especially stands out here. Totally blazing metallic HC that reminds me of the "Burning Spirits" style, traditional Japcore bands but with a slight crust touch. Another underrated band?

Crucified By The Ka-Kami(a.k.a. Crucified By The System) was a Scandinavian-styled, noisy D-beat HC project consisted of Kawakami(Disclose), Yoshio(Disclose), Otto(Selfish/Forca Macabra) and the members from Gouka and Insane Youth. Insane Youth sounds more raging traditional Japcore and this band had the Forward guitarist Souichi(ex-Gudon) on vocals/guitar.

Death Side / Chaos U.K. - CD - Selfish, 1993, Japan/UK, Never issued w/ obi, (BELCD-12058) - $110
Extremely rare and hard to find, original CD on Selfish Records. This album was originally released only on CD format in '93, but later bootleg on vinyl in '98. Here's your chance to own the real thing. It was the last Selfish Records release, and as some of you may be aware that majority of the CD-only releases they put out right before the label ended in the early '90s were made in the much smaller quantity and are harder to find than the earlier vinyl releases that the label did during the '80s up to around '90. Like this CD, also the Assfort "5 Knuckle Shuffle", "Final Bombs "Dooms Day", Don Don "Borderline", Ogreish Organism "Oni", Rise From The Dead "Rock Fan Dead" or both the original Death Side CD's are rarely seen for sale.

Gakimusha-Rousoku (餓鬼武者蝋燭) (a.k.a. Distorted Samurais) / Pipyu - 7" flexi - Bleeding Heart, 1985, Japan, Flyer insert, Screen printed sleeve, Clear red flexi, (Bleeding Heart Records 012) - $30
OK, both bands here are completely unknown. However, one of the bands on this split, Gakimusha-Rousoku(a.k.a. Distorted Samurais) is somewhat known to the older punks from Japan, mainly for their other flexi release with some crazy-ass title and a funny sleeve artwork. It's got the Japanese title, "Fuck no Suki na Souridaijin", which transalates to "A Prime Minister Who Loves to Fuck". The front sleeve features a drawing of Yasuhiro Nakasone(the prime minister of Japan at that time) flipping off and behind him there's Princess Diana smiling.... That's some weird shit. Check it out:
I remember seeing a stack of that flexi sold at every single punk record shops in the Tokyo and Yokohama area back in the late '80s. Pretty hard to forget such a ridiculously cool title and artwork. For this reason, at least just the name of the band is known for some people over there. However, to be honest, their music fucking sucks....!!! It's like some kinda crappy, lo-fi melodic punk rock that's more in the vein of powerpop or some sort... Not sure what exactly this shit is. On another side, Pipyu, another obscure band almost nobody has ever heard of. This is the good one, actually. This flexi is well worth getting just for this band! Unlike the worthless piece o' chinkasu punk played by Gakimusha-Rousoku you hear on Side A, Pipyu(what kinda name is it anyway?) plays some nice, solid sounding, ADK Records style dark punk that I often enjoy listening to. Both their songs are pretty decent. They're titled "Requiem For My Death" and "Dog In My Head". The second track has the cool English lyrics that go like "Dog in my head is runnin' away, dog in my head needs your love, needs your blood, wants to love you. I wanna die like a dog. I wanna die!!" Yeah, I have no fucking idea what the lyrics are about. I found a couple of Japanese blogs talking about this band and one of them described their sound like "ADK type hard punk with a slight HC feel" and I agree. The guitar riffs are a bit metallic but the songs aren't anything like heavy metal. Very punkish, slightly like Kikeiji but more upbeat tunes you hear on the Pipyu side of this split. The sleeve artwork is rad. I'm not very familiar with either of these bands but I know they both appeared on the MCR international comp LP called "This Is The Life" that came out in '87. I've never heard the tracks on that comp, so I can't tell if their music style is the same as what I hear on this flexi though. I think Pipyu put out another flexi and at least one demo before this. Also I remember seeing their name in some old Japanese comp tapes as well.

The Lärm reunion release with their classic tunes re-recorded in '03. Humus are metallic and thrashy Dutch crustcore. Neat packaging. Long out of print.

The first pressing was limited to only 200 copies, and has a red/black sleeve and the flexi is clear red. Originally available only through mail order from the label or MCR that did the domestic distribution. I got both limited and standard version of this flexi directly from them, but this copy never originally came with an insert... Unknown number of the second and later pressings were made on black flexi with a black/white sleeve.

Toxic Noise / Shoka-Furyo (消化不良) "Much Ado About Nothing" 7" flexi - New Age Core, 1991(?), Japan, Orig. 1st press, (VG/NM+), (New Age Core-001F) - $10
Not so well known fact that there are two different version of this release exist. The first edition is on New Age Core label, has a B&W sleeve with a folded inner flap featuring the band photos. The second/later pressing is on J.S.R. Records(most likely the same label, changed the name) and has a red sleeve without a folded inner flap. Another release by J.S.R. is a pretty cool and fairly obscure comp CD called "Missionary Brings Of Cataclysm" from '90 or '91. By the way, I always liked this unknown band Shoka-Furyo since I first heard their 1st flexi(self-released in '87, very hard to find, btw). I can't seem to find any information regarding them though...
Note: The flexi has a several visible dents but mostly on the blank surface near the center part that no music is recorded on, and they don't affect playing. Played fine on my turntable. The sleeve is in a great shape.

Victims Of Greed / Scum Noise "Fight For Freedom/The Power Has No Power..." 7" EP - F.F.T., 1998, Japan/Brazil, Insert & label flyer, (F.F.T.-016) - $10
Japanese Vs. Brazilian raw crust split EP that kicks major ass. I'd recommend both bands to any young and horny(and not so horny) crusties who love jerkin' off to the noise of Disclose, Framtid, Life, Doom, Besthöven, Discharge, S.D.S., Abraham Cross, Skitsystem, Totalitär, Discard, Gloom, Result, Antiauthorize and all that good 'n' juicy stuff. You know the drill.

The Sicilian Blood songs are very good on this comp., with that Gauze sounding, in-your-face Japcore style.

Sweats featured the ex and later members of Rocky & The Sweden, Headless, Systematic Death, Idora etc.

Must Get To The Power Of The Defence For.... - 7" flexi - MCR, 1989, Japan, 1000 pressed, (MCR-020) - $35
S.D.S. / Atrocity Exhibition(C.F.D.L.) / Naüsea - An absolutely killer compilation of some of the best early Japanese crust bands, all from Nagoya. It's a pretty hard to find flexi. C.F.D.L. used to be called Atrocity Exhibition in their early days. Often confused, but their 1st EP was actually released under the name of A.E. and "Crazy Fucked Up Daily Life" is the EP title. The S.D.S. tracks are some of their first recorded materials. What makes this flexi really special is the rare appearance by the Japanese crust legend Naüsea, featuring the later Unholy Grave singer Takaho Komatsu and the drummer Nai-chin from C.F.D.L., Rabia, Future Now!, Out Of Touch etc. Ultra-harsh and brutal metallic crustcore ala Doom, Extreme Noise Terror, Sore Throat or Abraham Cross. I wanna hear the Naüsea demos. Anybody?

Natural Crust & Punk Force, Noise Making - 7" EP - MCR Company, 1996, Japan, 800 pressed, Fold-out sleeve, (MCR-092) - $30
This is a killer 3-way split EP that's pretty hard to come by(and a bit expensive in Japan these days coz Order is big overthere), compared to many of the other MCR compilations from the '90s. It's one of those few older MCR 7"s that were pressed in a smaller quantity like 700~800 copies. Contains the first ever recorded material by Order, with the original singer, from when they were still playing sloppy and raw noisecore like what you hear on their great "Punk Navigation" 1st EP on Overthrow Records. Think of early Disorder, Chaos UK, Chaos CH etc. I love all the Order releases up to the "Taep'o-Dong" LP, but especially their early noisecore stuff. Their recent releases are boring and kinda lame... Some of the Mindsuck members went on to form Reality Crisis. Noisy and distorted, Japanese style crustcore. Mental Disease, you probably already know. It's a really nice, crusty 'n' filthy comp 7" with a super-crusty sleeve artwork.
