Confuse- Contempt for Authority and Take off the Lie “1985 saw Confuse record another 7″ EP of material and the sound here is much cleaner and sharper than any other releases – dare I say poppy? Contempt for the Authority and Take off the Lie is catchy and bouncy as hell and almost unrecognizable from […]

Laughin’ Nose

Laughin’ Nose – Get the Glory (AA Records 01) 1983 This 7″ is from 1983 and was released on AA records. This was the last release (I believe) from their noisey hardcore period. After this they turned into a semi-decent pop punkish band. I do not know much information about them, but they started in […]

Z – Violence Action 7″ Flexi (Z Records – 002) 1986(?) Well you probably guessed it, here’s another noizy plastic sheet, coming from Toyama exactly (center of Japan). Not a lot is known about Z, apart from that flexi they had one tape and a few tracks on some comp. Noisely it sounds like it […]

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 […]

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 […]

ZONE There’s never been a shortage of great music to come outta Japan. From the late 70’s, right up to today, the concentration of absolutely essential records is mindblowing………. ZONE were no exception. Formed in 1992, these guy paid homage to pioneering Japanese bands that came before them such as DEASTH SIDE and NIGHTMARE, playing […]

The 4th International

The 4th International – Nichijou Sei No Hakai Wa Wareware No Gensou 8″ flexi (Naptnr Records) 1983 Put out in 1983 by their own label. I believe this flexi is called “Nichijou Sei No Hakai Wa Wareware No Gensou”, but I could be wrong, so please correct me, if thats the case. Extremely sloppy hardcore […]

Screaming Noise

Screaming Noise – Noise and Masturbation (Anarchy Centre) 1997 This is one of my all time favorite 7″s, although I know little or nothing about the band. This is screaming noise’s second 7″ and it was released in 1997 on the anarchy centre label, which is run by a confuse member if I’m not mistaken. […]

(28 votes, average: 4.25 out of 5)  Loading … NIGHTMARE/CONCRETE SOX-Split e.p. (MCR 049) 1993 Released to coincide with a CONCRETE SOX Japanese tour, what matters most about this record is the absolutely raging NIGHTMARE tracks. Anyone that’s been around this site for any length of time knows my affinity for rampaging J-core, and NIGHTMARE […]
