解剖室 ‎– 髑髏 (Dissection Room EP)

Strange record here. Weird and awesome Japanese punk released by HG-Fact in 2008. It's a bit reminiscent of the old hardcore stuff on ADK back in the 80's, but with a more contemporary production. I got it from a friend who always got copies of new imported stuff at the time, and I seem to remember him saying that this is a CROW side project. I'll admit, and it may be somewhat apparent by the existing content on this blog, that I've never really ridden the Japanese hardcore/punk wave as hard as most - I like a lot of it, but just don't really listen to it as much as brilliant shit like, oh, POST REGIMENT or NEWTOWN NEUROTICS. This EP however really stood out to me and seems kind of elusive, so I urge you to give it a try! And maybe count the all the weird penises in the artwork...

  1. Oh yeah, this is a great one, as is their LP that came out a year or two later. It's one of the few recent good Japanese records. I loved Japanese bands when I was younger, but the appeal has really faded with age, aside from some of the more offbeat ones like The Stalin and LSD. Can we just admit that 99.9 % of the stuff coming out of Japan these days straight up sucks, and that most people wouldn't dig it if it weren't from Japan?
