So here are a couple of 7" flexis from Fuck Geez. First up is the "ZZZ" flexi from 1985 and second is the "Not For Sale" flexi from 86. Fuck Geez released at least one other flexi, a tape, an ep, a video and an LP too. Contributed tracks to various MCR comps. All great, all on MCR Records, which is still putting out really great stuff. http://www.dance.ne.jp/~mcr/
They also had a track or two on the "Virus" comp, released on Jungle Hop in 1987.
1. Hataraki takunai
2. No Thank You
4. How To Sex

So everyone seemed pretty happy when I posted the "Dead Section" and "Dead Section III" records earlier so here are two more. First is the "Jishu Seikatsu" 7". I believe this is from 1989 and was released on Premium Records (?). The second is "Kurbitsuri" I think this was form the early 90's (91?), but I have no idea on what label. If anyone has that information it would be pretty splendid to know.
Anyway, here you go. Enjoy.
Track Lists (sorry i spaced on these in the original post)
1. Re Juirs
2. Japanese Title
4. No No No
5. Solder "T"
7. "Japanese Title"

Okay. Here's a big fat delivery of more old school Japanese hardcore goodness! It's a doozy today, the biggest thus far. I have for your enjoyment, the following:
The much sought after (or maybe not) Ziga flexi from 1984 released on Jisatsu Records. Ziga had two tracks on the Jisatsu Omnibus 8" Comp EP (also from 84), which is posted over at Good bad Music (www.goodbadmusic.com) There's a little discussion there of this disc but I couldn't find it actually posted anywhere, so here it is.
Next is the Anti-Septic "First Last" EP from 1985. More well known than some of the stuff here but equally as legit.
Next, Half Years' "Power" 7" EP from 1989. Released on Kagai Mousou Records. Don't know much else about this one, good though.
I've got a great little gem here next, the B-Strife s/t 7" EP from 1985. This is just fantastic. Released on Skeleton Records.
Next up, two War Painted City Indian releases. First is the "WPCI Warning" 7" EP from 85. Second is the "Terror Boogie" 12" from 1986. Both of these were released on AA Records. An interesting factoid about the "Terror Boogie" release. It's catalog number (AA021) was also given to another release on AA Records, namely the Glycerin "From The Depth" 8" from the next year. Don't ask me why.
And finally, another real prize, the Gagize "Traculent Crime" 7" flexi from 1986. Released on Half Alive records. Splendid.
So maybe I'm shooting my wad here, setting the standards a bit high for myself. But I love everyone who reads this and I've got plenty of other stuff to post so here you go. Eat up.

Alright so back again with a few more tasty treats for everybody.
First up I have a couple Junk Schizo 7" releases. I've got the 1984 "Pity To The Ignorant" 7" released on Doom Records and the 1985 "Crime of Existence" 7" released on AA Records. Junk Schizo were a band from Kyoto who released these two and I THINK a self titled EP (don't quote me). The singer was a guy from New Jersey named John. Bass was handled by Seido, drums by Obara and Guitar by Thuchiya. Just in case anybody cares.
Next I've got the Aburadako unreleased Demo tape from 1984. This is great. 7 unreleased tracks from their studio demo, 3 live tracks from a set at Hosei University (6/24/84 is the date noted) AND as a super extra bonus, another untitled, unreleased studio demo track. Talk about delicious.
Alright that's all for now. I'll probably do one more round of this and then maybe take a break from the Japanese stuff for a little while, or maybe not. I guess we'll see. Anyway ENJOY ENJOY ENJOY!
Whoa totally forgot the track lists.

Okay so sorry it's been a couple days, I was on vacation and shit. But here's some more great Japanese punk stuff from the 80's. I've got Gess's 1983 "Suffer Damage" demo. Final Count's s/t flexi ep from 1984. Freedom's 1984 "Last Revolution" 7". Desperate Children's 1986 "Chaos Fuck Day" 7" ep. And Ikka Shinjyuu's "Dead Section" flexi from 1985 and "Dead Section III" from 1988.
There is a "Dead Section II" but alas I do not have it, so you'll have to find it elsewhere. All of these are pretty obscure. I think that the 83 demo was the only thing Gess ever released and I think the same can be said of the Freedom release (don't quote me on that). Anyway, all this shit tears so enjoy.

Today we have some rarities of old Japanese hardcore punk. I've got Deef's "Real Control" demo from 1984, Bitousha's "Hiromis Party" 7" flexi (also 1984), Barigade's "Dust Hero" flexi from '85 and At Det's "Last Child Has No Power" 7" from '85.
If for some reason you can only get one of these, the pick of the bunch is the At Det one. Absolutely pummeling hardcore punk rock 4 tracks deep. Some really quality guitar solos mixed in without sounding lame, ripping vocals and quality production for a 7" from 1985. Get it.
More of the same on the way. Rock the fuck out kids.

So here is the plan; I am going to put up music for you to listen to and shit, because I am at college and I am bored. Maybe I'll put up funny pictures if I find any.
So the first bad boy is a little gem of early 70's German prog coming in the form of Subject Esq. The band released just one (eponymous) album under this name and would later release a couple more albums under the moniker of Sahara. If you're asking me, this first album was also their best. Sounding much more bluesy/jazzy/almost jam-bandish than many of their contemporaries in Germany at this time, Subject Esq. seems to be channeling bands like Jethro Tull and early Yes much more directly than Kraftwerk or Tangerine Dream. Most of the tracks on this album are nice, meaty, complex pieces that usually incorporate (as one might expect) some passages of direct improvisation. The first two tracks ("Alone" and "Giantania") are titled a bit more towards the pure rock end of the spectrum, with "What Is Love" following up with a much jazzier feel to it. "513" is a nice little piece featuring predominantly the flute and keyboard (handled with great aptitude here by Michael Hofmann and Peter Stadler respectively). "Mammon" is the bear of this album, clocking in at a somewhat modest (at least in the world of prog) 12:40. It has a great great jazz jam line that fades in and out, bouncing on whimsical keyboard work and cushy guitar and flute improv lines. "Durance Is Waiting" is a fine way to close out, with a nice relaxed cruise through the final minutes, letting the guitars out of their cages a little less than halfway through and laying some serious melt on your face.
Some people are going to tell you that Sahara's other two albums are more "mature" or "developed" than this one, and that may be true, but I've always have had the most fun with this. Enjoy.
