SS – The Original 12″

This here is a bootleg of a 1984 posthumous release of a 1979 live show in Tōkyō. SS were probably the first japanese band to play something resembling proto-hardcore, and listening to this record I find it hard to believe that such wildness and ferocity in 1979 could be found outside of the USA. There’s hardly a song longer than one minute, the 1-2-3-4s come a lot faster and wilder than Dee Dee’s, the bassist shreds like a madman, and I doubt the guitarist plays even one single chord on his out of tune guitar! Fucking great!
SS never released any studio or demo recordings, but there’s another live recording available on CD. Sadly all the song titles are lost to history.

SS RAGE! 1-2-3-4!
