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.

  1. When you think you know everything from Japan, another band arrives here, that why I love this site, great post.
    Short & rough. What a vocal! Sounds like bees/flyes buzzing in your ears.

  2. i have to say, this is the best thing i’ve heard in a really long time. do you have any other obscure stuff like this? i’d gladly send you stuff in return. thanks for posting it!

  3. i would have to disagree with you. the second flexi was better in my opinion. the first song is so haunting and dark. think ala GHOUL song “Juda” and RxUxGx’s “Deathly Fighter”. wild insane solos, doomish atmosphere, crazy vocals, and just overall wild and insane. i have that flexi if anyone wants the mp3’s. if you have SLSK just tell me your username and ill contact you.
