Double album compilation of some of the best (and nowadays most expensive) Japanese HC/Punk EP’s ever to blast our ears. All essential, all killer.

Have you been through some extreme research lately ? Any fans of Japanese hardcore out there ? We’ve got something for ya. This double lp compilation are a who’s who of the underground scene, covering any key market from Tokyo to Sendai. Mostly released in the second half of the eighties – with just a bunch of 1984 seven inches – these tracks are a pretty rare example of suburban violence. Often influenced by English d-beat and Italy early fast and furious hardcore agenda, those bands were more than a menace to the system.
