The Bones –In A Sick Society! EP['85 Japan Hardcore Punk]
this is one for the people who love GISM,Kuro.LSD and LSD or ZOUO
only stuff this obscure band released
To some extent THE BONES are a relatively obscure band since they never got as prominent as for example GISM or KURO, but for sure that doesn’t mean they were bad at all cuz the contrary is absolutely true. Unlike the aforementioned masters of disaster, THE BONES never played that style of stuff we call "GiKu-core" today ("GIsm/KUro"… I should try to cash in for inventing an awesome explanation like this, shouldn’t I?), but their snotty as fuck, strong and ultimately rocking, catchy, hardcore-y punkrock which is dished up at uptempo speeds and contains hoarse, shouting vocals equals a kick in the bones (yo, again I managed to bring up a cool play with words…). To what I know, this EP is THE BONES’ one and only donation to the punk community, but at least one track of this pearl ("Insanity") was bootlegged on the "Nagasaki nightrider" comp. LP (1998 / 500 made / the other bands include LIP CREAM, STALIN, LAUGHIN’ NOSE, OUTO, THE CLAY, COBRA, MASTURBATION, KURO, SWANKYS, ABURADAKO, COMES, L.S.D., KIKEIJI, SYSTEMATIC DEATH, BITOUSHA, EXECUTE, SA, ROSE ROSE, G-ZET and LIP CREAM). Nonetheless, despite the fact that I’m still curious if THE BONES got their name because of Bones of DISCHARGE’s and/or BROKEN BONES’ fame, I bet my girlfriend as well as my best friend Steffie will love this 7" for the sole reason that the inner print shows four guys’ naked butts (ugh, there’s even one with a cigarette stuck into the hole of a person’s universe…), but to me, this is just amazing shit in the vein of a way more harmonious LSD or ZOUO mixed up with some classic, lesser metallic GISM influences, so I cannot recommend this puppy, which doesn’t contain any lyrics, but should come with a sticker, enough!!
