MARCH 20TH 2013 (PART 1 : A~M)

New customers:
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 (Armed Government's Error) "Inside Darkness" 7" EP - Dewa, 1997, Japan, 2 x insert, (DR-001) - $18

AGE (Armed Government's Error) "Blowing Wind" 7" EP - Underground Warder Productions, 2002, Japan, 1000 pressed, Stamped & numbered sleeve(# 0474), Orig. sticker on cardboard sleeve, (UWP006) - $15

Adenoid (アデノイド) "Outo-Roman"(嘔吐ロマン) 7" EP - Beat House, 1987, Japan, (NOID 001) - $35
Man, this is such a great record and I love this. I can say this for sure, however, I would NOT recommend this if you're into just punk and hardcore. This is actually the same Adenoid that appeared on the insanely-rare "Ningen Omnibus" comp flexi with Kyojinbyo and two more local Chiba city bands. On the flexi, they've had a Kyojinbyo guitarist in their lineup at that time, but I don't think he's on the recording of this EP. This came out later in the same year after the comp flexi, however, with a different lineup and music style. It's some quality Japanese darkwave/gothic-punk stuff. The songs are dark and with that freaky guitar riffs and all that, but at the same time they're also pretty punkish and hard at the same time. So, I would also recomemnd this to those who enjoy the music of some of the ADK type bands like Aburadako(especially), Kikeiji, Masturbation, Aka or Sekinin Tenka. I guess this fits in the goth/darkwave genre, but the songs are somewhat punkish in that ADK Records punk vein. Think of '80s goth/darkwave mixed with the style of the bands like Aburadako(especially), Kikeiji, Masturbation, Sekintenka, Aka etc. Adenoid is so damn obscure that there's not much info available but I know at least one member(a guitarist) from Mother-Goose, the late '80s Chiba-city based goth/darkwave band that was quite well known in the underground scene, was playing in this band.(actually, Adenoid sounds kind of similar to Mother Goose) Besides that, they appeared on the rare "All The Children Are Insain(Insane)" comp LP, under the alternate name of Doroebisu, with Mother Goose, Chu-Doku(from Chiba also), Theatre Brook etc. That's an excellent LP, by the way.

Aka (赤) "Gisouai"(偽想愛) 7" flexi - Jisatsu Label, 1984, Japan, 1500 pressed, (GL-006ES) - $30
Another total ADK Records and The Stalin worship from the mid '80s. Produced by Zombie, the bassist from Gas. Released on Gas' Jisatsu Label which tried to focus on putting out the records by the lesser known bands from the non-major cities at that time, such as this band, Nikudan, Ziga, The Sexual, Confuse on the Jisatsu Omnibus. Don't miss this great flexi out if you dig this particular style of '80s Japanese bands like Kikeiji, Aburadako, Masturbation, The Stalin, Sekinin-Tenka, The Sadist,  Shoujo-Ningyo etc. "Aka" is a Japanese word for "red".

Anarchy (アナーキー / 亜無亜危異) "S/T" LP - Invitation, 1980, Japan, Poster insert, (VIH-6066) - $30
Early Japanese punk rock classic! The debut LP containing the great tracks from their 1st EP, "Not Satisfied" and "Aburamushi". This original LP contains "Tokyo Is Burning", a track that was omitted from the reissue CD due to the lyrics containing some shit about the Japanese emperor. Their catchy, rough and primitive yet energetic punk rock tunes are loved by tons of older punks in Japan and their songs were covered by numerous bands, like that one cool cover song on the Chaos "Revolution!" 7". Didn't Fuck Geez also do some Anarchy covers on their record? There's a double CD tribute album released by Straight Up Records where their songs were covered by the various punk and hardcore bands like Zone, Extinct Government, Chaos, No Problem, Raiya, Miburo, Cider 77, The Slowmotions and Michiro Endo! The hilarious incident of The Stalin vs. Anarchy vs. Jagatara vs. The Roosters' the 4-band madly fight during The Stalin live set at the Burst City movie release party(at the Loft, Tokyo '82) is now the legendary episode in the history of Japanese punk. Sadly, Anarchy isn't getting as much attention as they deserve outside of Japan, but if you're into good ol' Japanese punk rock like The Star Club, The Stalin, Laughin' Nose, Cobra or The Blue Hearts, give a listen. I know a couple of their old songs appeared on some of the Killed By Death and the Back To Front rare & obscure punk comp's. Check out this awesome live footage(from a documentary DVD?)  Watch "Not Satisfied"(live at Yaneura '80) & listen to "Danchi No Obasan" Some more good ones here: "Sakende Yaruze!"(live early '80s) & "Anarchy City"(reunion show '94)

Amen "Feikki" 7" EP - Crash Mag, 1991, Finland, Fold-out sleeve, (Crash-2) - $5

The Part 2 is even rarer than the Part 1!!! This is the first time I got a copy for sale and don't know if I'll be able to get another one in the future. This one is really, really tough to come by. Awesome and super-rare photo book containing tons of cool full-color and b&w photos of the following bands: Madame Edwarda(8 pages + front/back covers), Masturbation(2 pages), Auto-Mod(6 pages), Lip Cream(3 pages), Sodom(6 pages), The Willard(5 pages), The Continental Kids(2 pages), Kyaah(2 pages), Sadie Sads(4 pages), Hanatarash(4 pages), Nubile, Phaidia, Gara, G-Schmitt, The Loods, Rose Jets, Kenzi, The God, Oxz, Sperma, Zelda, D-Day etc.

A short-lived U.K. crust band with the singer Takeshi(C.F.D.L. & Result) from Japan and the members of Excrement Of War, Doom, and Genital Deformities. Their '93 demo tape put to vinyl by Overthrow.

Bárbara "Holy! Holy!" 7" EP - City Rocker, 1985, Japan, (CR-00M) - $18
Produced by Momoyo from Lizard. All-female new wave/post-punk. 

Bárbara "Barbarous Virginity" 7" EP - Happy Birthday, 1986, Japan, Insert, (HB-001) - $25
This 2nd EP was self-released by the band and is harder to find than their 1st EP on City Rocker Records.

Battle Of Disarm "Chaos City" Demo Tape - Japankore/D.I.Y., 1992, Japan, Fold-out sleeve, (Japankore #7/D.I.Y.-CA-003) - $10
B.O.D.'s first or second demo, originally released by D.I.Y. Records in '92 and the U.S. version on Japankore came out in '94, I think.

Bitousha "Hiromi's Party Part 1" 7" flexi - ACS, 1984, Japan, (MF-4001) - $85
Very rare flexi release from this Sendai-city HC all-star project band, featuring the female guitarist Hiromi, who later went on to join G-Zet(changed the name to Bradbury shortly after) as a vocalist in Tokyo. The other members of Bitosuha include, the singer Ryuji(Disarray, Mino-5, Dessert etc.), the bassist Jun(Sekinintenka, G-Zet→Bradbury, Kenzi & The Trips, Dessert etc.) and the drummer Hideki(Rebel). Sekinin Tenka and Rebel members. The female guitarist Hiromi(Rebel) and the bassist Jun(Sekinin Tenka) later moved to Tokyo to play in G-Zet/Bloodberry with Tam(The Stalin). This is some quality metallic Japcore. An amazing flexi by an amazing band out of the great '80s Sendai punk scene, where a bunch of other notable bands like G-Spot, Dead Person, Lance Lot, Idiot Idolaters, Insect Powder and The Vomits were from. (MRR #23 review: "Absolutely demented vocals appear on two of the three tracks here. It's again that metal-punk style of GISM, but lighter on guitarwork. Complex, and evil-sounding.")

Braces, The "Banner Of The Victory" 7" EP - Hata-Age, 2001, Japan, 500 pressed, White vinyl, Stamped inner sleeve & label flyer, (HATA-002) - $35
Limited release on the Raise A Flag member's label. All 500 copies on white vinyl. Featuring the members from Raise A Flag and Cropped Men. Great Japanese Oi!

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

Beyond Description "More Power To Your Elbow" 7" EP - Desperate Attempt, 1992, Japan, Insert, w/ Sticker, (D.A.R. #007) - $9
The first record 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
U.S. hardcore style. This band later became Envy, changed the music style and got pretty big internationally, but Blind Justice was highly inspired by NYHC that played much more straight-forward, simple and fast hardcore. The band was formed in '92 and this is their 1st EP after putting out a couple of demos. "Far East Hardcore" comp track

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.

Chaos "Revolution!" 7" EP - Downer Recordings, 2005, Japan, 300 pressed, Stamped & numbered poster sleeve(# 110), Logo-stamped inner sleeve & label, (DOR-CH-001ep) - $35
Commented by Ishiya(Forward/Death Side) on the front sleeve. Awesome, distorted and noisy 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, but unrecognized band. Sounds totally different from their past materials like the "Oita City HC" comp tracks etc. Although their songs aren't exactly in the noisecore vein, I'd recommended this EP to fans of any noisy and distorted Japanese HC or early Disorder and Chaos U.K. Pretty solid release! Contains 4 tracks including an Anarchy(!!) cover song "Anarchy City", yeeeeeeeees!

Chaos C.H. "Serve You Right" 7" EP - Overthrow, 1995, Japan, 500 pressed, (OVERTHROW-009) - $65
I thought both their 1st and 2nd EP's were pressed in 500 copies each, but actually only the 1st one was, and more copies of the 2nd EP were made. Not exactly sure how many, maybe like 700~800 or so? Also, some copies of the 1st EP(regular ver.) has insert that came with the limited version.(the band photo sleeve)

Chaos UK "Just Mere Slaves" LP - Selfish, 1986, UK, Orig. 1st press of 300 w/ light pink sleeve, Japan-only release, (BEL-12001) - $45
Rare Japanese release on Selfish Records. It's the very first release of the label. The songs were recorded with Mower on vocals during their first Japanese tour in '85. The studio tracks on side A and the live tracks on the other side. Gauze, Sakevi, Lip Cream, Ghoul, Execute, Outo, Gastunk are credited in the thanks list. The first pressing was limited to 300 copies with a lighter, pink sleeve. The second and later pressings have the much darker, red-ish sleeve. There's also an European bootleg that came out on Sewage Records(also did The Varukers "Another Religion, Another War" 2 x 7" boot) in '97, which is easy to identify because of the center label is white, while the original Selfish pressings have the pink label.

Clash Dogs "Bite The System" 7" EP - Bronze Fist, 1998, Japan, Orange marbled vinyl, (BFR-003) - $8
U.K. '82 style, speedy HC like the No Future and Riot City bands.

Clod "Don't Kick Your Mind" 7" EP - Slice, 1989, Japan, Glossy poster sleeve & insert, (No Cat. #) - $38
Think of more rough and "crappier" version of early Gastunk, Poison(Arts) or late Mobs. Imagine the younger punks trying so damn hard playing that particular style of '80s metallic Japcore and that's exactly what you hear on this Clod EP. I actually like it a lot, though, who could play that unique metallic HC style better than Gastunk or Poison did?(duh) Released on Slice(a.k.a. Sulaisu) Records, the label ran by the Poison Arts singer in the late '80s. I totally did everything that was released by this label. This one is a bit hard to find like that Matsuji EP. This comes in a nice and huge fold-out glossy poster sleeve just like the Poison Arts and Sqwad flexi's do. Clod also appeared on the "Nobody's Fault"(Slice Omnibus Vol.1) comp LP and did at least one demo tape called "Thalidomide" which I've been trying to find a copy forever.

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 "No Side" LP - Dogma/City Rocker, 1983, Japan, Original, Textured sleeve, Insert, (DOG-2) - $135

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 goddamn HC from Sapporo, Japan. A review taken from the 625 label info: When WxHxN played with these guys in Sapporo, I almost dropped a cum in my pants. Hardcore boner, yay! 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 boner.

Crow "Kontonshin"(混沌神) 7" EP - Crow, 1998, Japan, 800 pressed, Poster sleeve, (New/Unplayed), (CROW-02) - $35

D-Day "Ki-Ra-I" 7" EP - Aspirin, 1983, Japan, (JCR-209) - $28
Female fronted new wave/post-punk. Hard to find Aspirin Records release from '83.

D.S.B. "No Fight No Get" 7" EP - Devour/Kichigaijin, 1996, Japan, Orig. 1st press, (UNKO 01-e) - $15

Deep Throat "Mikkai"(密会) 7" EP - MCR Company, 1991, Japan, 1000 pressed, (MCR-051) - $10
Metallic, dark, heavy and md-tempo Japcore in the same style as Rapes, Ghoul, Mobs, Zouo, A.T.-Det and so on.... From Kyoto. Their only release besides a few comp appearances from the late '80s to the early '90s. Shintani(Rapes) and Jotaro(Mobs, Geizz, Tetsu-Arrey) are credited in the special thanks list. The music is pretty good, although I wouldn't say it's brilliant like the forementioned classic bands, but my question is.... well, why the fuck did they decide to name themselves Deep Throat!?!?!?

Defector "Punk System Destroy" 7" EP - Crust War, 2003, Japan, Insert, (CRUST WAR-020) - $25

Delirium Tremens "Presagio De Muerte"(1984 Demo) 7" EP - La Vida Es Un Mus, 2008, Spain, Insert, (New/Unplayed), (MUS 20) - $4

Dessert "Soul Searching" Picture LP - Ranch, 1999(?), Japan, Clear PVC outer sleeve, Cardstock paper insert & flyer, (RANCH-03/SEL-Six) - $38
A hard to find picture LP by this great Japanese HC band, consisted of the singer Ryuji from the legendary '80s Sendai-city HC band Disarray(!!), also Bitousha, Mino-5(w/ Chelsea, Katsuta etc.) and early Cocobat, the bassist Jun Gray from Sekinin Tenka, Bitousha, Kenzi and Bradbury(ex. G-Zet), and the guitarist Kasuga(a.k.a. Gas), who also was a member of Disarray, The Idiot Idlaters, The Pogo, The Ryders and currently plays in Laughin' Nose. Sort of like an '80s Sendai HC all-star band, isn't it? As you can imagine from the past band history of three of the band members, these guys sure know what they're doing and you know what to expect from Dessert. If you're into all those classic Burning Spirits styled, traditional Japcore bands ala Death Side, Judgement, Bastard, Tetsu-Arrey, Crude or Forward, you'll love Dessert. Ryuji's throaty vocal style is awesome. They did a great Disarray cover song "Bad Blood" on the CD version of the "World Of Fantasy" 7" EP from '98. Both this LP and the EP are well worth checking out, although the LP is much harder to find than the EP, though. Featuring the excellent artworks done by one of the best Japanese underground artists, Usugrow, whom some of you may be familiar with if you're into the hardcore/punk-related artists like Sugi, Tom or Pushead. Self-released on the band's own label called Ranch Records, which I believe is a label ran by either Ryuji or Kasuga, as the recent official CD reissue of Disarray from several years back was also released on Ranch. Dessert hasn't done so many releases since they were formed in the mid~late '90s, only the forementioned EP and several compilations including the Gastunk tribute album, but I'm pretty sure the band is still active these days.

Device Change "The Vision With Total Control Is Destroy" 7" EP - Juke Boxxx, 1999, Japan, 2000 pressed, Insert, (JB-006) - $2

Dilenma "S/T" 7" EP - Armored Brain, 1995, Japan, (ABR-002EP) - $35
Fucking amazing band!! Love this EP so much. In that good ol' dark metallic Japcore style ala Ghoul, Zouo, Rapes, G.I.S.M., Geizz or A.T.-Det, but Dilenma played their songs much faster with more thrashy, razor-sharp guitar riffs. Think of late Ghoul, Demolition or Rapes. Killer gruff vocals reminds me of Masami! The special thanks list includes Rapes, The Gaia, ex-Freedom singer etc. Definitely one of my top 10 favorite '90s Japanese HC records!

Disarray "In Search Of The Miraculous" 7" EP - Chicken Shit, 1985, Japan, (CS-2) - $40

Total early Disorder/Chaos UK/Swankys/Gai-worshipped noisecore. Distorted, fast, sloppy and chaotic! '82 in '97! Fucking ace! There are two versions of this EP exist. The original 1st edition from '97 came with a b&w folded lyric insert. Sometime in the early 2000's(the band was broken up already), they sold some leftover copies without an insert, but instead, a newly-made blue outer sleeve with lyrics printed on the back side was attached to them.

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

Gastunk "To Fans" 7" EP - Love, 1986, Japan, Orig. 1st press(gig freebie ver., never issued w/ insert) on clear purple vinyl, Printed clear outer sleeve, (SEX 69-004) - $20
This EP contains the killer, re-recorded(and faster!) version of their early classic tunes "Devil" and "Sex" from the 1st EP(Dogma, '85) and a different version of "Fastest Dream" from the "Dead Song" LP. This original issue on clear purple vinyl was given away free to their fans during the "Heartful Melody Four Island Tour '86", and the multi-colored splatter vinyl reissue(w/ insert) was later sold at the shops.

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" 3xEP, "In The Fire"(live ver.) flexi and "The Vanishing Signs" 12".

Geizz "We Wait For Song Of Geizz" 7" EP - DGR, 1985, Japan, (D.G.R.-001/DGR RECORDS 001) - $85
The Execute and early Gastunk-style, speedy and metallic HC. This is a fucking excellent EP. The rare and only ever record put out by this Tokyo-based obscure band consisted of the bassist Toshi(The Execute), the singer Chatara who later went on to join The Execute in '85 or early '86(after the previous singers Baki and Ichi, before "An Omen Of Fear" EP release, around the time Chelsea joined them as a drummer), and the guitarist Jotaro, from the various other bands include Mobs, Mohawks, F.O.A.D., Last Bomb, Whip Brains etc. Jotaro currently plays in Tetsu-Arrey. The female drummer Misa(Kyaah, Rap & Last Bomb) also played in Geizz at some point, but not on this recording. The back sleeve indicates: "Produced by The Execute, Toshi" and also Lemmy from The Execute is also credited. Don't miss this out if you're into the bands like The Execute, Gastunk, Poison or Ghoul!!! The metallic and thrashy guitar riffs are excellent. The Geizz songs also remind me of A.T.-Det!
Note: The white part of the sleeve shows some light discoloration from aging. The vinyl is super clean and is in Mnt condition.

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.

Gendou Missile (ゲんドう ミサイル) "Gé" (ゲ) 7" EP - Nagomu, 1985, Japan, (NG-019) - $20
Gendou Missile's 7-track 1st EP! This band is sadly unknown to most of people outside of Japan(although they're pretty big over threre), but they may be known to some of HC fans since their 3rd EP was released on Hold Up/Noise Room Records, which I think is pretty good. This one is very good and the songs on this EP sound harder and more HC than the Hold Up EP, though! They had two bass players(wtf?) in their early lineup, but I guess they decided to get rid of one after this EP. Gendou Missile also has the LP out on Taiyo Records, a label that put out the Kyoaku-Kyojindan 8" flexi and LP, the Detroit EP etc.

Gendou Missile (ゲんドう ミサイル) "I・Ya・Da!" Picture 7" EP - Nagomu, 1986, Japan, Folded metallic foil sleeve, (NG-028) - $18
The 4-track 2nd picture EP. The music is pretty much in the vein of the 1st EP, but that one is better, I think. In the special thanks list, Ishiya(Death Side), Mosquito(mid '80s thrash HC on "Nippon Rentogen") and Sister Ray(Kiekiji singer's band) are credited. Hiroshi, the guitarist from Gendou Missile was very close friends with Chelsea(he learned the guitar from Hiroshi) and he is the one played the guitar for Death Side at the Chelsea tribute show in 2010. Hiroshi also played in Asylum and The Trash. Asylum's earliest and original lineup includes Chelsea and Ran-Lin, both from Death Side and Poison. Gendou Missile is still active but I don't think Hiroshi is their current member.

Gewalt "Osozaki Kuruizaki"(遅咲き狂い咲き) Picture 7" EP - Nippon Koukaku Ongen, 1995(?), Japan, Fold-out insert, Clear PVC sleeve, (NKO-1) - $35
Here's a powerful 6-track smasher by Gewalt. An absolute, cock-exploding Japanese HC fist fuck in your face! No wimpy bullshit here. Like the band name says it all(gewalt = violence, power, or force in German), this is extremely heavy and fast, traditional metallic Japcore style that's comparable to the Burning Spirits type of bands, but Gewalt played their songs much faster and heavier. The fucking evil-sounding, gruff vocals are sick as hell. This self-released, nice little picture EP containing six blistering tunes. Quite rare and hard to come by! Think of a cross between the traditional Burning Spirits style HC and the good ol' metallic Japcore ala Ghoul, Rapes, Zouo, Demolition or Dilenma. This criminal motherfucker Shura Fujimoto was the singer for Gewalt and he's a pretty well-known douchebag in the Kansai area HC scene. You guessed it right! Needless to say that he's always been associated with the other shady thugs from the area, like the dudes from Rapes, Nightmare, Warhead, Danse Macabre, SAAG(ex-Crusty Hi Charge), Dilenma, R.O.M. and all that musically creative people, despite their obvious criminal background. I think he even did the vocals for Danse Macabre a couple times live when Cherry was still behind the bars....!! Now since Cherry's out and free that he and Shura got together in the new-ish band called S.H.I.(however, I've heard that Shura just fucks around with some kinda weird noise sampling machine or some shit)

Gibbed "Eternal Life" 7" flexi - Sound Of Burial, 1990, Japan, (ULTRA FAST 4) - $35
Released on S.O.B.'s old label called Sound Of Burial Records. Ultra-brutal-as-fuck skullcrushin' grindcore for fans of the grind/death metal-era S.O.B., Unholy Grave, Napalm Death, Carcass and the classic Earache stuff!!!

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, (男-001) - $40
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!
Note: The flexi has a slight bent mark, but plays perfectly.

Grubby "No Cheap Ways" 7" EP - HG Fact, 1995, Japan, Label catalog flyer, (HG-036) - $3
'80s U.S. style metallic crossover thrash/hardcore.

Hawks, The "Requiem" 7" EP - Rock Of The Beast, 2000, Japan, 500 pressed, Insert, (ROTB 001) - $55

Headwasher "Guinea Pig"(ギニーピッグ) 7" flexi - Satsugai Enka Vinyl, 1989, Japan, (ONO-444) - $28
The only ever record release by this obscure Japanese noisecore band. They have at least one demo tape out besides this flexi. Featuring Crazy-SKB from Kyoaku-Kyojindan, Hi-Technology Suicide , QP-Crazy(has a split CD with Rapes!), Kill, Moudoku etc on guitar, and the members from another good HC band called Detroit. The flexi was released on his own cult punk label called Satsugai Enka Vinyl in '89. Contains 5 trax with the song titles like "Mad Love Song", "Sennou(Brainwash)" or "Pleasure Of Blood".... As the titles suggest, their music is totally brutal, violent, noisy and chaotic HC with ultra-distorted and noisy guitars. And, the vocals are pretty sick! Would highly recommend this to those who love jerkin' off to the violent noise of the bands like Kyojinbyo, Kuro, Coward, Gasmask, Gai, Tranquilizer, Gudon(early), Confuse etc. This is some sick ass shit!

Hellhammer "Triumph Of Death" CD - No label, 199?, Switzerland, Slipcase package, (No Cat. #) - $10
Contains the "Triumph Of Death" demo '83(13 tracks), plus bonus tracks off the "Death Fiend" demo '83.

Hightechnology Suicide (Hi-Technology Suicide) ‎"Solid Gold Crazy Action" 7" EP - Climax, 1989, Japan, (MAX-4104) - $25
The 1st EP by Hi-Technology Suicide!!! Violent HC chaos!! One of the main bands of the fucked-up psychotic vocalist The Crazy-SKB from Kyoaku-Kyojindan, who runs Satsugai Enka Vinyl label. If you aren't familiar with them, Hi-Technology Suicide was formed in '89. The Crazy-SKB's biggest influence is The Stalin!! Some of the later Hi-Technology Suicide releases(after '91) are kinda weird with the electronic/noise edge, but their early releases are straight-forward violent HC/Punk. This 1st EP, the "Hone/Kirisaki Jap" 2nd 7" flexi('90) and the "Headbanging Alien" 3rd CD single('90) are all great!!!(my favorite is the flexi) One of their later members, Honma(who joined them in '91), currently plays in Kikeiji as a keyboardist(!?), and the bassist Tsujimura used to play in Kikeiji(in the '80s), Jiheitai(pre-The Stalin), Kokeshi-Doll(pre-Jiheitai), Barashi(pre-Kokeshi-Doll) and Paranoia Star(Michiro's post-Stalin band circa '87)!!! Yes, he played in three different bands with Michiro Endo and Jun Inui before they formed The Stalin, and even in Michiro's short-lived band Paranoia Star after The Stalin broke up. He is one of the original Hi-Technology Suicide members and plays on all their releases. Listen to "Solid Gold Crazy Action"!!!! & Listen to "Honé" & "Kirisaki-Jap" ('90 flexi)

Lo-fi primitive hardcore from Cleveland, feat. the singer Steve from 9 Shocks Terror. So fucking what?

Human Despair "Cry Out Fist Up" 7" EP - Discrete, 1998, Japan, Laminated sleeve, (DIS-021) - $18
I just found out that the ex-vocalist/guitarist from Human Despair is now in Confront.(their 7" came out in the U.S., put out by Not Very Nice and General Speech last year)

Innocents "Masho"(魔性) 7" EP - D.I.S., 1989, Japan, Insert, w/ sticker, (D.I.S.-004) - $58
One of the most important bands from Shizuoka city HC scene, among others like Deadless Muss, So What, The Rustler, Griffin F.Z., Mental etc. Awesome 8-track EP on Deadless Muss' D.I.S. label. This copy comes with a rare sticker.

Innocents "Masho"(魔性) 7" EP - D.I.S., 1989, Japan, Insert, (EX+/VG+), (D.I.S.-004) - $48

Insane Youth "Breakthrough Blockbuster" 7" EP - Dan-Doh, 1996, Japan, (DAN-DOH 001) - $18
The band's second EP and it's the first ever release put out by Dan-Doh Records. Insane Youth was Souichi(Forward, ex-Gudon)'s old band from Kochi, and he was the singer/guitarist for them. The early Insane Youth stuff's really good, like this one and the "Not Give A Damn" first EP on Blood Sucker.

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.

Isterismo ‎"Non Puo Sopprimere Il Mio Conflitto" 7" EP - Overthrow, 2008, Japan, 2nd press w/ lighter background on sleeve, Insert, (OVERTHROW-044) - $35

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.

Juntess "You Were Free" 7" EP - MCR UK, 1992, Japan, (MCRUK 002) - $10

KGS "Cutcord And Destruction" 7" EP - Blood Sucker/Rebelabel, 1998, Japan, (BSR-024/REB-005) - $5
Rough and driving Japcore with an old school U.S. hardcore edge ala Black Flag or Circle Jerks. The 2nd EP from this lesser-known, Tokyo-based HC band featuring the guitarist T.T.(ex-Extinct Government & Forward), who currently plays in a new-ish band called Eiefits, with Minoru(Lip Cream, The Comes, E.Government etc.) and some other people nobody couldn't care less about. Don't know which guy, but I know one of the other members was in early RoseRose. KGS also did a split EP with a great band from Shizuoka called H,K,(ex-Deadless Muss & The Rustler, 2 tapes out on D.I.S.) on Blood Sucker earlier the same year.

Kikieiji (奇形児) "Plastic Scandal" 7" EP - ADK, 1983, Japan, 1000 pressed, Original, Printed glossy inner-bag sleeve & insert, (ADK-06E) - $78
Rare original '83 ADK Records pressing. Produced, engineered and released by Tam.(The Stalin, Typhus, Middle→Class, G-Zet/Bradbury etc.)

Kontraŭekzisto "Rezisto Kontraŭ Totalismo" 7" EP - Paank Levyt, 2001, Japan, Pink marbled vinyl, (PAANK-009) - $15
I don't have much info about this band except that they were supposed to be the studio project of ex-Frigora member(s). They sure do sound a lot like Frigöra though, and on top of that, all the lyrics are sung in Esperanto, just like the pre-Frigöra band called Liberação did. Intensely noisy, ultra-raw and primitive crust with a noisecore touch. Yes, reminds me of Collapse Society or Frigöra, a good ol' Scandinavian inspired raw crust mixed with that totally distorted, fuzzed-out guitar sound like the '80s Kyushu noisecore. This is some awesome and madly noisy shit here. For fans of Ferocious X, Isterismo, Frigöra, Collapse Society and stuff like that.

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. "Slice Selection" CD('91, DTK/SLICE-0005, No DTK cat # stated), Genoa "What A Wonderful Life! Ha!!" CD('91, DTK-0007), The Comes "Power Never Die" CD('91, DTK-0008), and Poison + Poison Arts "生死即涅槃 煩悩即菩提" double CD('03, DTK-2001~2) The label was ran by a record shop called Edison, and Slice Records(Poison Arts' label) sort of became of part of D.T.K. Records since their '90 CD release. What's "DTK-006"???

Kyaah (キャ→) "S/T" 7" EP - R.B.F., 1984, Japan, Glossy envelope-style sleeve, Insert, (RBF-202) - $48
Rare!! This is their 1st EP that's much harder to find than the "Slapdash" EP('85) on AA Records, with the original singer Junko, who left the band shortly after this release. Killer speedy Japanese punk with all girl members.

Kyojinbyo (狂人病) "Black Current Hard Coar" 7" flexi - Museum, 1987, Japan, Stamped & numbered sleeve, (HC-87931) - $65
Awesomely embarrassing 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. (P.S.) Their singer Takeo was insanely fucked up. Very surprising that he had lived until 2002.... Could be dead much sooner.

L.O.X. (Lip Cream, Orange & X) "Shake Hand" CD - S.E.X./Sunshine Sherbet, 1990, Japan, (SS-006) - $25
"L.O.X." stands for Lip Cream, Orange, and X. The project band by Naoki(Lip Cream), Act(Orange) and Yoshiki(X, the legendary metal band). Act also played a bass for Axe-Bomber in the early '80s and S.K.V.(Sakevi solo project) in '95. Orange was a punk rock band from Tokyo that I don't know much about. Originally called Masami & L.O.X., with the ex-Ghoul singer on vocals. Their '88 live recording with him is included on the rare Masami 3CD & 7" box set on Sunshine Sherbet. He obviously hasn't done anything else with L.O.X. afterwards as he was in a coma since '89 til his death in '92. L.O.X. was such an unique project that featured several different Japcore singers doing vocals for them both live and studio. There's a kick-ass boot live video with Tokurow(Bastard/Judgement) singing for them exists(search "LOX Yoshiki" on Youtube). On this 7-track album, the each song has a different singer(except Toshi on the 2 songs). The main vocalists are Ishiya(Death Side), Butaman(Tetsu-Arrey), Toshi(X), Ranko(The Continental Kids), Koh Ito(Fools) and even Naoki sings on an entire song! Yes, Naoki from Lip Cream doing vocals & guitars. Mix of wide variety of music style from hardcore, punk, metal, thrash to rock'n'roll. It's the only ever release(besides that weird track on the Masami/Ghoul tribute CD) by them and is on a great label S.E.X./Sunshine Sherbet that also put out the Tetsu-Arrey 1st LP/CD, Masami solo LP, The Gaia 1st CD, Nickey & The Warriors 12", The Continental Kids LP's etc. Here's some more useless(?) infos for few obsessive collectors out there. This label was ran by the same dude from Ducasse Label(Kikeiji, Real EP's etc.) and Wechselbalg Records, who also runs I.D.N.(Inner Directs/I.D. Japan) which is a large distributor that has a HUGE tie to Sakevi, and exclusively distributes the G.I.S.M./Beast Arts releases. If you're bored, take a look the credits on your Beast Arts, Ducasse or OK Records stuff.

Lance Lot "Eat The Dream!" 7" flexi - Stomping, 1987, Japan, (SR-004) - $35

Last Bomb "Firing" 7" EP - Powder, 1985, Japan, (POWDER RECORDS E-01) - $55
Rare self-released 1st EP with the original lineup including Loony(ex-Mohawks/Baws) on vocals, Cloudy(a.k.a. Kanon, ex-G.I.S.M./Front Guerrilla) on guitar, Bear Bomb(Final Bombs, ex-Ghoul) on bass and Misa(ex-Kyaah/Rap/Geizz) on drums. This is their only release with Loony on vocals. Their later releases, the "Retro Firing" EP and the 12", on Selfish Records were recorded with the second singer Bondage, who later formed the great band called Grave New World with the Crow singer and the Asbestos drummer in the early '90s, and I believe currently plays the guitar in the Crow singer's another band Kaiboushitsu. After Bondage left Last Bomb, they changed the music style to more like the late Discharge style metallic HC and also changed the name to Final Bombs, with Bear Bomb on vocals/guitar.

Lastsentence "S/T" Demo Tape - Self, 2010, Japan, Light brown sleeve, (No Cat. #) - $25

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.

350 copies of the limited green vinyl with insert were sold only in Japan and the U.S. edition on black vinyl w/o insert were made in a larger quantity.

It was Sugi(from Kuro)'s another band. Obscure darkwave/goth with female vox. Released on Kuro's KPP Records.

Masturbation "S/T" 7" EP - ADK, 1983, Japan, 1000 pressed, (ADK-01E) - $150
Produced, engineered and released by Tam.(The Stalin, Typhus, G-Zet/Bradbury etc.) One of the harder to find, early ADK releases.

Mental "1st Dischord" 8" flexi - D.I.S./Mental/Hells Tombo, 1989, Japan, (D.I.S.-006/MENTAL RECORD-01/HELLS TOMBO-02) - $98
Very rare Shizuoka-city HC flexi on Deadless Muss' D.I.S./Dirty Informal Section label. It's definitely harder to find and more obscure than the So What and Deadless Muss flexi's.
Note: The fold-out sleeve shows wear and crease, mostly at the top part. The hard flexi disc looks super clean, might even be unplayed, however it seems slightly warped at the edge. Nothing major that would affect playing, and no bent marks, dents or scratches.

Mess "Get Into A Mess" 7" flexi - Kings World, 1986, Japan, (K.K002MA) - $20
Unlike many other Kyushu based bands from the mid '80s played noisecore and more chaotic sounding HC, Mess(in their early days) played some really good, rough and straight-forward, in-your-face HC that reminds me of the "Fuck Heads" era, early Gauze. That's what they sound like on this 1st flexi. They later moved to Tokyo in the late '80s and put out the 8" EP and also appeared on the "Get Back The Discharged Arrow" comp LP(w/ Acid, Crück & Mad Conflux) on Selfish Records in '89. Can't remember what they sounded like on those two releases but I think they were in more like typical, traditional Japcore style. They later changed their music style and released the full-length CD on Selfish Records in '91 and the LP on Bloodsucker Records in '99. Those two are in a quite different style than their earlier releases. This band is probably more known for the 8" EP and the comp LP tracks, but I think this flexi is much better. All the songs on this flexi are speedy and somewhat primitive, yet powerful. It's an early Kings World Records release and this particular copy comes with a rare, original Kings World flyer advertising The Swankys flexi, Confuse "Contempt..." EP, "Punk The World" tape etc.

Missing Burn "A Mere Shadow Of Myself" " 7" flexi - SS Company, 1991, Japan, Insert & sticker, (New/Unplayed), (FRR-007) - $38
Solid, speedy and straight-forward HC like the mid~late '80s Selfish Records stuff ala Systematic Death, Outo or Lip Cream, with just a slight more metallic edge. Missing Burn is from Kyushu and this flexi is on SS Company, the label ran by Flak. SS Company and Violent Party were the two main labels organizing the local shows, besides putting out the records and tapes, in the '80s Kyushu area punk scene. All the SS Company releases are pretty hard to find. The other releases by the label are the Flak flexi and CD, the Ruin flexi and demo, the Red House flexi and demo, and "The End Of Your Generation" comp tape(Flak, Ruin, Piss, Rebel etc.) There's also the SS Company comp CD called "Broke Out Insanity"(incl. Flak, Ruin & Missing Burn), which was actually released by King's World Records in '91. The only known releases by Missing Burn are this flexi and the comp CD tracks, but they might have a demo or two out earlier since the band was active from the mid/late '80s. This is a nice, new/unplayed stock copy of the rare and obscure flexi. 6 trax.
