Topic: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

great article and podcast here: http://www.shit-fi.com/sounds.html#9

loving the Exit Hippies at the moment!

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

I personally can't stand it (I do love Abraham Cross though, but more because they sound British than anything else.) Also, the podcast has bands from the second wave in it.
I think the whole Tokyo Soundsystem scene is pretty rubbish and sounds very pretentious. I'm much more into recent bands keeping the second-wave style alive.

More power to me.

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

you know fuck all

But the riff that was made from the base was the heavy, slowly, darkness, and bad feelings.

just saying like, you dumb fuck

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

List your Japanese hardcore record top 10, then we'll decide whether you know anything.

I'm not into that.

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

I never said I knew everything, I just posted my opinion. I've been very disappointed by the Tokyo Soundsystem compilations and I've heard my share of things about it from people who live in Japan. Your two extremely witty posts and their complete lack of explanations or arguments definitely convinced me about how right you are...

Conor, do you really want to know my Japanese HARDCORE records top 10? Is crust allowed in the list or not? I'm curious to hear yours and Eze's.

More power to me.

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

just downloading this now, looks pretty interesting, but the Basque Hardcore one caught my eye first! Some good stuff on here....

I was after eze's, in light of his pretty strong comments.

I'm not into that.

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

Oh, sorry mate, I got a bit confused I suppose...

I still do want to know what your Japanese hardcore/punk/crust top 10 is though (I'm pretty sure I know which record is #1 and I can say it's not the same as mine, even if the same guitarist plays on each of them...)

More power to me.

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

Although I don't know loads and load about it, these are the ones I listen to the most (I only own originals of 3 though, to my displeasure).

Bastard - Wind Of Pain lp
Warhead - Drive It In Your Head 7"
GISM - Detestation lp
Judgement - Haunt In The Dark 7"
Death Side - Wasted Dream lp
LSD - Jast Last flexi
Gauze - Equalizing Distort lp
Confuse - Spending Loud Night 7"
Paintbox - Singing, Shouting, Crying lp
The Comes - No Sides lp

Obviously about a thousand other great records and no space for Lip Cream or the Swankys!

I'm not into that.

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

PS. Paging Tom Campbell for photos of Tetsu Arrey lp + weight lifting gear.

I'm not into that.

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

Interesting...

I don't like Tetsu Arrey by the way...

Anyway, here's mine:

JUDGEMENT - first 3 7"es (count as one.)
BALANCE - split CD with UCA + 7" (count as one as well.)
YOSHIHIRO HIRAOKA & HUMAN ARTS - the CD.
POISON ARTS - Kick Rock LP.
DEATH SIDE - All Is Here Now 7".
CRUDE - Change Everything From Into You First.
CROW - Bloody Tear LP
ETAE - both 7"es. (count as one.)
FEROCIOUS X -  Befria Fran Vanda 7".
THE CLAY - Middle East Combat Area 7".

I stuck to proper hardcore.

More power to me.

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

good to see people checking shit fi out

fuck off

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

Could anyone post a discography for Crude? Last 'proper' record I'm aware of them releasing is the Attitude LP (discounting the compilation LP on Deranged here).

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

Not at all, that's great. I'd heard about the split with Nightmare and Burial but never saw it crop up in any distros, was curious to know if they were still releasing anything.

Yeah they are, newest is the 'Just Go Go Ahead' 7" on HG Fact, good stuff

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

The split with Wandering Folk (ex-Etae + a female singer) isn't great. Crude stuff is live and WF aren't amazing...

More power to me.

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

By the way I don't find Exithippies pretentious at all, my top 10 whatever Japanese would include:

Gloom - Recommendation..
Confuse - well everything really
Chaos Channel - ditto
Kuro - Who the helpless
Gai/Swankys - Very best of hero (etc)
Framtid - everything
CFDL - Atrocity Exhibition 12" (and the 2 x V/a Discharged comp songs which I love)
Sieg heil - both demos
State Children - demo + Flexi
Crow - everything really, but leaning towards the earlier stuff...

very varied and not all strictly hardcore, guess i lost it and just listed random 10 Japanese bands...

Re: The third wave of Japanese noise punk

If I had done it your way, that Gloom 12" would have been in 2nd position on my list and half the bands I mentioned in it wouldn't be there.

More power to me.

just to be clear, my tongue was firmly in my cheek when calling you names - being cheeky rarely comes accross on the inter-ma-web though does it? i may ponder my top 10, but i'll probably never come to a conclusion

You're a moron.
