I was trying to find some Nitro Microphone Underground records on Spotify to satisfy a weird craving about Japanese hip-hop but they don’t have any so I ended up with a safe bet on Dj Krush. Turns out they don’t have any complete recent release - I was looking for Zen - but this one will work just as good.
For over seven years and eight months, a man in Japan has been taking photos of a vending machine. Why? We don’t know, but he is sorry.
G.I.S.M. | Japan
a mysterious band
in the days before the internet
it was nearly impossible to find anything by them
with the exception of this song from WAR/PEACE compilation album
there was only this one song; this one crazy song
a description of the difficulties in tracking down japanese hardcore can be found here
seek out their 2001 release Sonicrime Therapy and let it shred
Do you remember when Boris (the japanese band) was making heavy amplifier worshipping drone? #itwasbetterbeforelikehipsterssay
