V/A BEST RUN FAST VOL. 1 flexi-(MCR company records) 1990
Two really solid early 90’s Japanese compilations here. These were the first two records in a series that included “best run fast” video and an compilation lp. Most of these bands, with the exception of D.o.n D.o.n., didn’t get much recogognition. It was probably due to the fact most of them didn’t release much more material than a solitary 7″/flexi or a couple comp tracks.
BEST RUN FAST VOL. 2 ep-(MCR company records) 1991
MCR records was famous for not only releasing records by smaller, unknown Japanese (and worldwide) bands, but also it’s “hard & loud” series of videos and all the city compilations (i.e.- Kyoto city h.c. /Sapporo city h.c. etc.). I believe that both these records, plus tracks from the” best run fast” compilation lp, were recently re-released on one handy cd.
MCR is still going strong to this day releasing consistently great records. Check out their website HERE.
