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.

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.

B-5 Part 2 (Rasen Hikou No Yoru / 螺旋飛行の夜) - Photo Book - Sanwa Shuppan, 1985, Japan, Paperback w/ full-color covers, 92 pages, B5 size, (No Cat. #) - $58
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.

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.

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!

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.

Clash Dogs "Bite The System" 7" EP - Bronze Fist, 1998, Japan, Orange marbled vinyl, (BFR-003) - $5
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 "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 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 horny review taken from the almighty 625 label info: When WxHxN played with these guys in Sapporo, I almost dropped a cum in my pants. Hardcore boner, yay! Young, fresh 'n' juicy 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.

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.

Fairfuck "S/T" 7" EP - Kick N' Punch, 1999, Norway, Logo stickered sleeve, Insert, mini poster & stamped inner sleeve, (KNP 01) - $3
Kick-ass Norwegian hardcore. This 7" was later reissued by Underestimated Records in the U.S., with a different photo on the front sleeve, but this one is the original pressing and is the first release by the now defunct label Kick N' Punch from Denmark.

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.

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.

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.

Homostupids "The Glow" 7" EP - My Mind's Eye, 2006, US, 500 pressed, Orig. 1st press on pink marbled vinyl, (New/Unplayed), (MME 003) - $4
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)

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/ light tan color sleeve, Insert, (OVERTHROW-044) - $35

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 Records earlier the same year.

Kikeiji (奇形児) "Plastic Scandal" 7" EP - ADK, 1983, Japan, 1000 pressed, Original, Printed glossy inner-bag sleeve & insert, (ADK-06E) - $75
Rare original '83 ADK Records pressing. Produced, engineered and released by Tam.(The Stalin, Typhus, Middle→Class, G-Zet/Bradbury etc.)

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"???

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.

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.

Lebenden Toten "Dead Noise" 7" EP - Overthrow, 2005, US, Ltd. Japan-only edition of 350 copies on clear green vinyl w/ Japanese lyric insert, (OVERTHROW-039/LTR-002) - $38
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.

Lenasix-Up "The Peler Inage Of Seventh Mirror" 7" flexi - KPP, 1986, Japan, w/ sticker, (New/Unplayed), (KPP-005) - $25
It was Sugi(from Kuro)'s another band. Obscure darkwave/goth with female vox. Released on Kuro's KPP Records.

Lenasix-Up "The Peler Inage Of Seventh Mirror" 7" flexi - KPP, 1986, Japan, (KPP-005) - $22

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.

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 6-track flexi.

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.

Refuse "Punk Save The World???" 7" EP - Beer City, 2001, Japan, w/ paper 3D glasses, (Beer City Records-01) - $25
Lo-fi noisecore/noise-punk. The center label says "Beer Cider Noise!!!!!". Contains six filthy trax including the song titles like "Noise Never Die!" or "The Fuck Song" and a crappier version of the Gai/Swankys cover song "Little Star". This was self-released on the band's own label called Beer City, not to be confused with the U.S. label with the same name. These guys also released the "Control Noise" tape on their other label called Damaging Noise. As it says "Some copies came with a pair of 3D glasses." on Discogs, this copy is complete with a bonus 3D glasses.(why...?!) I have no fucking clue what the 3D glasses have to do with this record, but I see on the back sleeve there's a weird photo of a bunch of guys wearing the similar glasses, and inside the sleeve there's a 3D artwork/design(well, sort of...) Perhaps some sort of a nonsense joke.

Resurrection "S/T" 7" flexi - ADK, 1985, Japan, (ADK-23S) - $25
Produced, engineered and released by Tam.(The Stalin, Typhus, Middle→Class, G-Zet/Bradbury etc.) Resurrection had ex-member(s) of Hentai Club, the pre-Aburadako band with Paruo(a.k.a. Paro) from Sha-London/Sex Imagination Drugs/Incest Records.

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.D. (Sound Of Disaster) "Lagar Och Förordningar" 7" EP - Georg Becker Schallplaten. 2005, Sweden, Black vinyl, (GBR-1415) - $10
Their Oct. 1983 demo tape put to vinyl.

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.

Screaming Damned Fossils "First EP" 7" EP - V.O.D.D., 1996, Japan, (V.O.D.D.-001/SDF 001) - $12
Fast, simple and straight-forward Japcore that sounds kinda similar to the late '80s Selfish Records stuff ala Outo, DonDon or Systematic Death, but with a slightly more metallic edge.

Stalin, The "Go Go Stalin" 12" - Climax/Tokuma, 1983, Japan, (CMC-1) - $25

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. The picture disc looks very nice.

State, The "No Illusions Reunion" Tape - Take 'Em Up, 2003, US, Hand-written on chrome tape, (Take 'Em Up #1) - $3

Straight Edge Kegger "Is A Fucked Up Mess" 7" EP - Wicked Witch, 2007, US, (New/Unplayed), (WWR 029) - $4

Swankys, The "Never Hero" CD - King's World, 1993, Japan, (KWCD93) - (Trade or Offer)
Very rare! This awesome 5-track CD was put out by King's World, however, at the time of its release it was as the "UK only release" and was supposedly "exclusively distributed in Japan by King's World". That's what the label claimed this CD to be, and purposely made it looks like it was "The Swankys' first ever international release" as another joke. So, it has no indication of the actual label name anywhere on this release, but instead there's an "EMI" parody logo on it. Also, the artworks and layouts were purposely done sort of cheaply, as well as some recording/release info(such as a fake producer name) in funny English is printed on it. The artworks are pretty cool, a photo of Watch on the front cover and the usual and odd Swankys style, nazi-inspired artwork on the back, of course. Originally no tracklist credited, but the actual song titles were made public by the label. They are: "I Love Money"(a.k.a. "I Don't Love"), "Cranky", "Fuck My History", "Chaotic Life" and "I Love You". I must mention that it's one of the best materials The Swankys did in my honest opinion. Actually, possibly the best and it's definitely my favorite and I sure listened to this more than any other releases by them. I do enjoy these tracks even more than the "Very Best Of Hero" LP. Watch's vocal style here is snottier than ever it was. The laziest Watch-style vocals at its finest! You gotta hear this to know how cool he sounds on these tracks. You can hear and feel full of THAT whole "fuck off" attitude of The Swankys in these tracks, especially from Watch's vocals, if you know what I mean...! That's like what this band's existence was all about, was it?! Another awesome thing about this release is that some of the songs can be heard only on this CD and aren't available, in any version, on any of their other releases. I think that the first, third and fourth songs are completely exclusive to this CD. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think they really are. I'm not sure of the exact recording date of these tracks but it's supposed to be the previously unreleased studio recording around the time that the "More Fuck" demo was done. Btw, the recording is pretty raw and rough, which makes it sound so damn rad. Oh man, seriously "I Love Money" and "Chaotic Life" are soooooooooo good! Love the sarcastic lyrics of "I Love Money", too.

Typhus "1980.10.28" Demo Tape - Self, 199?, Japan, Tokyo ver. w/ stamped sleeve & plain black cassette, (No Cat. #) - $45
Sort of a mysterious, official release that was put out by one of the ex-Typhus members(don't know which one) and sold at the selected shops in Tokyo(Base) and Osaka(Ignition) only. The Base version has a pink "Mangrove" stamp on the front sleeve, and the Ignition version has a completely different artwork/layout and the sleeve color is either yellow or pink. The cassettes used are different, too. This is the studio demo with some of the tracks featuring the female vocals by Miina Yasue. She was the band manager/staff for Aburadako and the early Willard. Later married to Michiro Endo and managed The Stalin as a B.Q. Records staff. This studio demo contains the earliest Typhus recording(before Tam joined the band), with the original line-up: Izumi on vocals/guitar, Miina Yasue on guitar/vocals, Shin on bass and Taku on drums. Miina played the guitar on some of the tracks.

Under Beans "Roots Rock Suck" 7" EP - Stomping, 1988, Japan, 500 pressed, (SR-006) - $28
Obscure Sendai-city HC band on the awesome Stomping Records. Possibly the hardest to find out of all seven Stomping releases?(Dead Person, Lance Lot etc.) This is the only one that has the indication of "limited edition of 500" on the sleeve. I know that the "Hardcore Showcase" comp LP and the Tiffanys flexi(my fav!) are also pretty tough to come by. Super-catchy and rockin' punk like the older Sendai band The Idiot Idolaters.(they have the 7"s out on Chicken Shit and appeared on the "Shodoku Gig" comp LP, ex-Disarray) Actually, Under Beans were formed by Manabu, the ex singer from The Idiot Idolaters.

United "Beast Dominates '92" CD - Howling Bull, 1992, Japan, Obi, (HBR-M0006) - $35
All the songs from the "Beast Dominate" EP('86, Hold Up/Noise Room Rec.) re-recorded with the '92 line-up, plus two bonus tracks. Long out of print, early Howling Bull Records release.

Warhead "Cry Of Truth" 7" EP - Self, 1991, Japan, Orig. 1st press, Fold-out sleeve & insert, (Ⓐ-001) - $65
Hard to find, original pressing that the band put out by themselves. 3 different pressings of this classic 7" exist and they all have different sleeve, layout and/or vinyl color. Only this original pressing comes in a fold-out sleeve with the war cloud artowk inside, and also comes with an insert. As for the reissues, the 2nd press('91, black or clear vinyl) is on Amok Records from Germany and the 3rd press('01, clear red vinyl) is on Devour Records.

(   SPLIT   )

Abraham Cross / Struggle For Pride - 7" EP - Paank Levyt, 2003, Japan, 700 pressed, Extra outer sleeve, Yellow marbled vinyl, (PAANK-013) - $45
N-O-I-S-E O-V-E-R-D-O-S-E!!!!!! Gotta love this one if you're into the fucked-up noisy shit. On this crazy-ass brutal split EP, S.F.P. plays some ultra-intense and distorted noisecore crust like a mix of Gloom, Collapse Society, Exit Hippies, Confuse and all that fantastic NOIZE. Raw and noisy as fuuuuuuckkk!!!! The thick-ass bass line and the fuzzed-out guitar riffs are absolutely sick, despite the image and impression you get from the song title like "Summer Never Ends" and how their side of the center label says "chill out".... And, the usual Doom, Sore Throat and E.N.T.-inspired stench noise crustcore from Abraham Cross. Their material here is actually even noisier, destructive and waaaaaaaaay more chaotic than any of their earlier stuff. I'd say it's much more in the fucked-up noisecore vein than the classic U.K. crust style you hear on the "Peace Can't Combine" LP('94~'95 recordings) on Crust War. Seriously, some of the noisiest, dirtiest and the most crucial sounding crust/noise-core you'd ever come across, man... However, this one is a bit harder to find than most of the other Paank Levyt releases. (P.S.) Inside the sleeve, there's an ad for the forth-coming Paank Levyt release(which never came out) by a band called Mob 2000("Tokyo No.1 Political Thrash Punk"), entitled "Are You OK? No! I'm Åke!". Who the hell are Mob 2000, yo?!?!

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.

Exithippies / Stagnation - 7" EP - Paank Levyt, 2004, Japan, Green marbled vinyl, (PAANK-016) - $18
Fucking noisecore.......!!! The '80s Kyushu noisecore worship, Stagnation, has been putting out the good amount of noisy 7"s and tapes over the past 10 years or so, like the "Total Noisecore" split 7" with Control from a few years back! I believe this split with Exithippies was their first release. A must have for fans of Confuse, Gai, Disorder and Chaos UK!!!  "Sex, Beer & Noise"!!!

9 Shocks Terror / Devoid Of Faith - 7" EP - Gloom, 1997, US, Purple marbled vinyl, Insert, (Gloom-002) - $4

Raid / Sugar - 7" EP - Discrete, 1998, Japan, (DIS-022) - $25
Top-notch split release by these Burning Spirits style HC bands from Shizuoka city, done exactly in the tradition of the classic Japcore and Shizuoka HC bands ala So What, Deadless Muss, Innocents, Mental or early Zone. A lot of the bands from Shizuoka from the '80s~'90s were highly influenced by Lip Cream and Death Side, and these two bands on this split EP did it pretty well. Pure raging traditional Japcore at its best. I believe this is the only release of Raid, besides a few comp tracks. Sugar(ex-Swindle Bitch) also released the "Live Now, Pay Later" CD on Discrete Records in '01.

Slight Slappers / Hated Principles - 7" EP - Blurred, 1996, Japan/US, (Blurred-08) - $4

Swat / Kasumi Sawaki - 7" flexi - Hinokyu Ongaku Shuppan, 1983, Japan, Clear red flexi, (本質発掘 002) - $15
Kasumi Sawaki(credited as Kazumi Sawaki on this release) was a singer for the punk band called Hinokyu(a.k.a. Hinomiya) that has the 7" out on City Rocker Records from '84 and also ran Taiyo Records, which was a label known for some decent punk/hc releases during the mid~late '80s, like the Kyoaku Kyojindan 8" flexi and the "No!" LP(a killer LP! w/ Suehiro Maruo artwork), Detroit 7", Gendou-Missile LP, Geil 7", Genkaku Mime 7" etc. On side A of this split flexi(as a Taiyo Records sub-label release), his solo project plays some weird punk tunes with, what appears to be, some kinda strange political agitation or some sorts at the beginning of each song. I don't know what the fuck this music is. Could be some sort of a joke, tough. So, while you get some worthless weird crap on sidee A, the tracks done by this unknown punk band called Swat(or SWAT?) on the other side sound more solid and far better than the Sawaki tracks. Swat does 2 tracks here, "Death Boy" and "Roudousha Kaikyu"(= "working class" or "proletariat"). Simple, straight-forward and rough punk rock that the music style wise, I guess not very far from stuff like Typhus, The 4th International, Nurse(early), Kyaah or The Stalin(early). Yes, the style wise, and that doesn't mean that I'm saying this is as brilliant as those classic bands, but here you can check out the first track from this flexi: SWAT "Death Boy" Can't really tell for certain but the vocalist might be a female.

Systematic Death / See You In Hell "Backdrop Eu Tour 2010" 7" EP - Insane Society, 2010, Japan/Czech, 1300 pressed, Orig. sticker on outer plastic sleeve, Insert & label flyers, (IS 095) - $5

Toxik Trash / Heavy Water "Out Of Order" - 7" EP - Dirty Thrash/Teenage Scrap Sounds, 2004, Japan/UK, 150 pressed, Large fold-out insert(unnumbered) & label info insert, Clear vinyl, (DIRTY-3/TSS-1) - (Trade or Offer)
Toxik Trash is an insane, fucked-up crust/noisecore with ex-Abraham Cross members. Their songs remind of some of the other fine Japanese noisecore bands mixed with the fucked-up rawness of some old Mexican noisecore like M.E.L.I. or Cagada De Perro. Good stuff. Heavy Water from the U.K. is consisted of ex-members of Hellbastard, Amebix etc. Some Jap shop sites like P&D described their music like the classic U.K. metal-crust, but honestly more like metal to me. An extremely limited split release by the two Tokyo-based labels. 150 copies pressed and sold out immediately after its release. Dirty Thrash is the Abraham Cross dude's label that also put out the limited Hellbastard LP.

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) - $8
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.

Zyanose / The Separations "Fuck Split - No Communication" Demo CD-R - Self, 2006, Japan, Gig freebie, Hand-written white disc, (No Cat. #) - $25
Originally given away free at one of their shows in Osaka and it's supposed to be limited to only 100 copies or so. The Separations are/were the Zyanose studio side project band. Not sure if this band has ever played live. They sound like The Swankys! Very fucking good!! Wanna hear more songs by this band if they've got anything else out.

Attack With A Vengeance - 3" CD - Pressure, 1993, Japan, Tall package, (PR 001) - $30
Gloom / Vantage / Büll Oyster / Less Haze - Contains the early Gloom material!(4 trax) Vantage is also pretty good! Don't know anything about them but they're on the "Unknown HC Drunker" comp. Bull Oyster fucking sucks and Less Haze is just average. Never heard of this label called Pressure Records, but since the contact address is Kanazawa, I have a feeling that it might have been Datsu(Iconoclast & Delta)'s old label... This is one of those Japanese 3" size, mini CD's that comes in a tall and flat package.

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.
