Ok, I just got an advance CDR of an upcoming Netjajev SS 7" on Rescued From Life Records. I don't think I'd be over exaggerating if I said that it's the greatest piece of music in the history of recorded sound.

That is loving AWESOME! Do you have a link to the source of this news or is it just a rumor? What label is putting it out?

My Japanese friend Kazu from Osaka posted a bulliten on myspace this morning saying that they would be releasing a new album in a few months. Seems like a pretty reliable source to me. I assume it will just be on their own XXX Records.

New GAUZE album is the best hardcore record to have come out within (at least) the past 5 years, easily. Better than your favorite band, better than my favorite band. Completely lives up to all expectations.

HOLY poo poo! New Gauze album!? Kao O Aratte Denaoshite Koi was really great, so I gotta hear this. I'm surprised they're still able to rule so hard.

So far it's just CD only and the label (XXX Records) doesn't do any overseas distribution, so it'll cost you full Japanese import price (~$30) for a 13 minute CD. Prank is trying to get them to do a vinyl version for overseas, so cross your fingers. Still, if you're a fan of hardcore, you should have stopped reading this post about halfway through and started licking that envelope shut already.

A few mentions of Weekend Nachos among many pages of emo/screamo discussion does not a hardcore thread make. It's not my fault that I'm trying to get people pumped about things like the new Gauze CD and they would rather discuss emo bands that won't be relevant in 6 months.

I listened to that new Gauze album and it sounds like pretty much every other hardcore band I've ever heard, only the lyrics are in Japanese.

Ok, well now I'm just genuinely curious, what other hardcore bands have you heard? Cause I can only think of one or two bands that sound similar to Gauze (NK6 [who are roadies for Gauze], and maybe one other if I dig the depths of my brain).

Inspector_71 posted:

Pretty much all hardcore sounds the same to me, playing fast and not very melodically. Not to say it's all bad, but much like Metalcore, I just don't think there's much difference between bands.

Ok, fair enough. I do think that hardcore is quite varied though. Speaking for myself only, I find it impossible to confuse a breakneck noisy thrash band like Wretched from Italy with a much more polished and metallic band like Death Side from Japan, both of whom many people would consider to fall under the hardcore banner, even though they sound quite different from each other (See! It doesn't all have to sound the same!). I can see what you're saying though because I think that many bands in some hardcore sub-genres/scenes (I'm looking at you retro '82 USHC) DO sound very much alike, and if someone wasn't familiar with hardcore on a worldwide scale (and the different sounds that many countries have), it could get tedious.

Oh, I see you edited too. To touch on that, I definetly think that there is room for boundry pushing (if there wasn't, something like modern "Burning Spirits" Japanese hardcore wouldn't exist and that would suck balls), but I also think that with too much experimentation it's possible to lose the point or completely move into another direction altogether.

If it breaks, it's my fault, not whoever is in charge of shipping. I guess it doesn't matter with CDs, but for vinyl, I always use online ordering as a last resort. Mostly since our local record shop usually will order for me anyway if I ask them to.

In the past 7 years I've mailordered at least 700 records. Only one of them ever arrived broken.

Actually, what I'm hoping on finding is 7"s of these bands. I have the Minor Threat First Demo Tape 7". I want to get the Salad Days 7". My local record shop doesn't have much punk/hardcore that I recognize, but I might take another trip now that I'm aware of Embrace and Angry Samoans. I don't remember them having any of the other bands that were suggested.

Hope you have a couple hundred bucks to spare. You'll need it to get the first two Minor Threat 7"s.

I just get bummed when Japanese bands skip the west coast and go to the east coast. We are closer god dammit. I remember last time Total Fury played the west coast they flew out for 4 days and played just 3 shows and went back home. I think that Charm/U.G. Man tour was the longest tour of Japanese bands in the US I have seen in a long time.

I never understand people on the west coast who complain about stuff like this. As is my understanding, California has tons of great local bands that play all the time. Do you know what the last show I went to where I live (Michigan) was? Bloody Phoenix. That was in loving AUGUST. I mean, everyone wants to see Japanese bands, so that's really a moot point, but at least you guys have a decent local scene.

Breakfast came here, but we usually get good touring bands. So uh, yeah.

I'm not saying Japanese bands NEVER come here, but for someone who's local scene alone rivals the quantity of touring bands that come around here, for them to complain about a touring/foreign band skipping their area comes off to me as almost spoiled. California has bands like Strung Up, Deadfall, Capitalist Casualties, Born/Dead, Despise You, Lack Of Interest, California Love, etc etc. Detroit has the Bill Bondsmen. Yippie.

Well... we do want to see Japanese bands too! Honestly I think there's a lot to be said about the smaller punk communities in the midwest - I'd rather be at a basement show than a bar any day, which is pretty much where you're going to see a band of any notoriety in California.

I did manage to see Witch Hunt in a really small living room my first weekend living here (in addition to seeing them in a club with the Subhumans two days prior) that was pretty ridiculous. House/DIY shows happen out here but not as much. Not complaining, but there are definitely recognizable perks to the smaller punk communities of the midwest.

I really like places on the East Coast like Philly/Baltimore/Richmond from what I've seen - very DIY/house oriented and crust-as-gently caress.

Speaking about Michigan alone: It sucks here. For example, going back to the Bloody Phoenix show I mentioned; The only reason it was a relative "sucess" was because my friends and I roped people we know, who have no interest in punk whatsoever, into coming out just so BP didn't have to play in front of 5 people. Not counting the opening bands (one of which I was in), there were maybe 25 people there. 20 of which had never heard of DIY punk, let alone BP, plus 5 punks. We promoted this show for months, and still no one gave a poo poo. It's not like BP is unknown either, I heard about other shows on their tour that were packed.

So basically my point is: smaller punk communities in the midwest are great, but non-existent communities is more like it, at least here.

Hellnation is definitely still around. They're doing a split LP with Capitalist Casualties this year (my dream record, *swoon*). Their old bass player Doug started Brody's Militia after he got married and quit Hellnation, but he's actually playing bass for them again now. My friend is setting up a show around the time of MDF, sort of a DIY alternative, and hopefully Hellnation will be playing that along with Phobia, Magrudergrind, XBRAINIAX, and more.

Kind of a bummer, but kind of cool at the same time because the Gastunk CD is pretty cool, and it would have cost me $25 if I bought it seperately.

Chaos, you don't have extras of the Netjajev/Syphilitic split do you?

Just traded away my last extra. Sorry man. If it's any consolation, the SV stuff on that split sounds pretty different to what he's doing now.
