赤 – 偽想愛 7″

Aka („Red“) released their one and only 7″ in 1985 on Gas‘ Jisatsu Label. The disturbing cover artwork kind of fits these four tracks of dark and atonal punk. Two songs are slow and dirge-like, the other two songs are primitive mid-tempo stompers. Aka sound a bit similar to Masturbation, especially in the slow songs, which are the winners on this 7″.
SS-Recordings also released a posthumous CD with more songs of Aka some time in the 00s, but I have no idea if they were studio or live recordings.

Why split up after one release?

    I spent years thinking the name of this band was ‚Gisouai‘ because that’s what I found somewhere in the web many years ago. Finally I discovered that Gisôai was the name of the record and AKA was not ‚also known as‘ but the name of the band, ‚red‘ in Japanese as you say :D

    About the SS CD from 2009, discogs doesn‘t give any details, but other sites do. The first four tracks are this EP. Tracks 5-10 are live at Meguro Rokumeikan 17/1/85 and the rest (11-22) live at Kichijoji Bausushiata 27/7/87

    Saludos,

    Fernando :)

    „Have ever had the chance to check the CD out?“

    Nope. Leider nicht :( I first knew about it thanks to your comment, and then I searched for more info, that’s it.
