v.a. My Meat’s Your Poison LP

The My Meat’s Your Poison compilation from 1987 is nothing but classic high-speed thrash from start to finish. I‘m not going to waste your and my time describing every single band, after all I‘ve already posted releases by all of them: Outo, Chicken Bowels (misspelled on the cover as „Chiken Bowels“), Systematic Death, Gudon, S.O.B. and Lip Cream, they all rule! Still, S.O.B.’s hilarious and over the top cover of Blitzkrieg Bop deserves to be mentioned separately.

Sadly my copy of this record has no lyric sheet.

Lip Cream – Kill Ugly Pop LP

Of Lip Cream’s stuff that I know, Kill Ugly Pop from 1986 has my favourites. The song writing is cool, there’s lots of energy and lots of snotty hardcore punk. Even though Lip Cream never went as metallic as a lot of contemporary or later japanese hardcore bands, this LP has some heavy moments with cool guitar harmonies, and the production is better than on their e.p.s and the Kill The IBM tape.

KILL UGLY POP! DO IT!

Lip Cream – Kill The IBM LP

If you wanted to own all the original releases contained on this bootleg compilation LP, you‘d have to spend a shitload of money. This here’s got all their wild, thrashing classics: their „Lonely Rock“ and „Night Rider More Than Fight!“ 7″es from 1984, their tracks from the „Hardcore Unlawful Assembly“ and „The Punx – ストリート・ムーヴメント“ compilations plus a couple of tracks from their „Kill The IBM“ tape.

Bigfoot (He’s Chicken Killer)!

v.a. Hardcore Unlawful Assembly

This compilation LP from 1984 is something of a misnomer, since there’s quite a lot of non-hardcore on it: Cobra, Laughin‘ Nose (absolute unlistenable and unbearable lyrics on this release) and Baws are more Oi!/punk than hardcore. The rest are real heavy weights, though: Zouo were the darkest band in japanese hardcore, Lip Cream deliver heavy thrash, Outo are pure distortion, Mobs play dark, somewhat melodic mid-tempo hardcore and GISM are pure evil (as usual)!

I thought this was a riotous assembly?

v.a. 病原体 – Virus Compilation Jap

The Virus Compilation features pretty typical thrash from the later eighties. With tracks from Sic, Lip Cream, Fuck Geez, FVK, Systematic Death, Mad Conflux and D.O.N.D.O.N. it’s got a mixture of big and lesser known bands.

Get it!

v.a. A Farewell To Arms

This compilation was originally released in 1986 with cover artwork featuring the Atomic Bomb Dome, but this here is the 1988 version on Nuclear Blast. Lipcream, Outo, Gauze and The Execute are featured with great thrash, Ghoul and Gastunk are more metallic. I especially love the tracks by Ghoul and Gauze.

I like Cola!

v.a. Thrash Til Death

With Lip Cream, Systematic Death, Outo and Gauze this compilation/4-way split is like a who’s who of japanese mid-eighties thrash bands. Even though I‘m not that big a Lip Cream fan, this whole record is completely chaotic, high-speed thrash & burn madness, with some of the best tracks these bands ever recorded. Hell yeah! This version is the US-release on Pusmort Records, and sadly came without an insert.

Thank you, Brilliant Naoki!

v.a. The Punx – ストリート・ムーヴメント

The Punx – Street Movement was originally released as a tape in 1985 with a huge 84 page book about the history of Japan’s punk scene. The compilation features songs by Gas, Laughin‘ Nose, new wave band The Willard, the hilarious Cobra (Worrier’s Rock? Or did they mean Warriors‘ Rock?), Lip Cream and GISM. One of the GISM tracks has a different song on each audio channel (can‘t these maniacs do anything like ordinary, well adjusted people?), but I separated the channels so you can listen to each song on its own. You‘re welcome!

C‘mon in Oi!
