anybody hear any good Japanese punk bands?
I might have done a thread about this a long time ago but I don't remember.
The bands from Japan seem to approach their music a lot differently than bands from other countries.

Check out-
The Roosters, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, Guitar Wolf, Eastern Youth, Water Closet, The Blue Hearts. See what I mean.
Anybody know any other good ones?

Those Japs sure have interesting music.

There's one band this thread is missing.....
THE SPIKY BRATS
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkUeKOWIkeU

They're not Japanese, they're Korean, but Korea was Japan's bitch for a long time, so it's all the same.

edit: the spiky brats are a joke, but I actually like this band

Confuse are amazing, I have their discography on cassette. Low quality recordings make great music even better.

Also Carcass Grinder, one of my favorite bands. You CAN'T get lots of their music from my NON-EXISTENT torrent blog, including splits with Violent Headache, Insect Warfare, and Agathocles. DON'T PM me if you DON'T want the link.

Haha, I remember the spikey brats. They'd be pretty funny, if it wasn't for the sad fact that there are people who actually like that kind of thing.

Nobody better mention that lame misfits cover band.

There's this hardcore Japanese punk band called Ogreish Organism. I'm not really a big fan of hardcore, but from what I've heard of it these guys are on the ball. I have an album online, if anyone ever wants it.

They made me smile. The comments for them are pretty funny too.

My interest in japanese punk starts and ends in Balzac.

Whenever I'm in London, I see all these tiny Japanese punks, and they're so smartly dressed. It's quite hilarious.
