Old School Japanese Punk Assault Part 4: The Extravaganza

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 ( 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.

mega-thanks for the war painted city indian stuff!! ive got all the other records on this post, but the WPCI stuff has always eluded me for some reason. GREAT!! THANKS!!

oh yeah, the Half-Years label is actually called Kagai Mousou. it was run by Guy of Gudon, and is pretty much the early incarnation of the still VERY active & great Bloodsucker label.

hey, the Offender Delusion thing is just a rough english translation of Kagai Mousou that I used instead for some reason. Haha. i'll edit it. Thanks for pointing that out.

Glad to help with WPCI stuff!

Thanks so much, this will keep me keen all week! Terror Boogies is one of my favves since it was posted on "Fight against the plutocratas" blog some years ago. But the name? War Painted City Indians? Did they change it later to simply 'City Indians'?

I am so utterly ignorant about all this!

wedge said...

yeah, actually the 12" is under the name of CITY INDIAN; and they may have had a few gigs & comp tracks under that name,too...

Slobodan Burgher said...

Aha! That was what I thought...thanks Wedge!

gabe said...

wedge is on point as usual.

Gabe, thanx for all these Japanese records... I'm speechless!! Awesome... RK

Slobodan Burgher said...

Ok. Another nerdy question which I failed to settle myself today when I was listening to the EP: Is the Terror Boogie EP the same recording as Terror Boogie 12"? This may be obvious but I ask as I have two different rips - one is all crispy and the other one is slightly muddy sounding...very interesting...yess...anyone know..Wedge?

gabe said...

As far as I know it's the same recording.
