ROSE ROSE – From Born Till Die…. 8″ Flexi (Line-records 002) 1985

Lets get out of random unknown obscurities. This is 1st Rose Rose record, one-sided flexi which sounds quite different from what they did after, their next record, the Emotional Disturbance 12″, was way more on the metal side than punk, then they went on a more USHC direction until going complitely thrash metal in the early 90’s (The band still exist nowadays). Needless to say this is my favorite records by them, this is the only one they did as a 4-piece, as female bassist Arisa was a guest on this record. I don’t know much about Line Records, i don’t think it was the band’s own label, they also released the Live flexi of PCG, and New Walls a female fronted punk band i never heard. I don’t know which is Line-001, anyone knows ?

Tranquilizer – 1st 7″ flexi (Tranquilizer Record-001/PLM-037) c1985

Japanese monster coming from Hokkaido. As usual not a lot is known about those loonies.
This one is quite hard to describe, seems that old Hokkaido bands had a very particular sound, i’d say even more wild than most Kyushyu noise bands. Could be easily compared to Gudon or Coward flexis, indescribable voice on totally noisy instruments… They released a second flexi in 86, but doesn’t reach the insanity of this one, just average japanese punk-core.
