Masturbation - Discography CD (ADK)

Another one of the ADK discography cds released by OK Records. This one collects all the stuff Masturbation ever put out.

I listened to it quite recently thinking it was an LP of the band, I can't remember much except for the fact that I enjoyed it!

Has a sleazy hard-edged punk sound, which I found very appealing. Also fans of other ADK releases will instantly recognize the famous Tam "Hard Punk" production.

Unfortunately I know hardly anything about this band, But I heard somewhere that the bassist went on to play for Kikeiji.

I also read in an issue of MRR that the band were exibitionists, this could be referring to their live show though, I read on a Japanese site that the singer would do such things as cutting himself open at gigs, Which sounds like Iggy Pop or Sid Vicious. Maybe the singer would even live up to the band's name and have a wank on stage? Wouldn't be suprised.

In fact, this album kind of reminds me of The Stooges. Especially the riff on track 4. An influence? Probably, who knows?

Good band.

Anarchy - S/T (1980)

Sorry about the lack of updates, haven't had much access to the computer due to my arsehole of a brother, and I have been quite busy with some other things, this should change soon though. Dirk was planning on uploading this, so here it is.

Despite this band seemingly being quite popular, I don't have much info sorry. I know that they called the band Anarchy because of Anarchy In The UK, and at concerts they and the fans would wear the workers uniforms that the singers father used to wear. The band also had anti-imperialistic lyrics at concerts, but had to change them if they wanted the songs to get on record.

If I am being completely honest, and this may get me into trouble, I am not a fan of this band. They seem to be one of those wannabe british/sex pistols Japanese punk bands, like Star Club. And this album mainly consists of bad covers of good songs by The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, and so on. Also I won't bother going into the tantrum they threw when they weren't included in the film Burst City, they even started a childish feud with The Stalin over it.

But I know some of you like this band, or may like this band. So have fun!

P.O.W. Magazine Issues 1-3

The person who scanned these is trying to prevent other people from seeing them for some strange reason. I don't see the fuss since these are just scans, data, nothing compared to owning the real things. It just seems greedy to keep them to yourself.

So here you have scans of P.O.W. Magazine issues 1-3.

1 and 2 are from the "Punk On Wave" era, when the magazine was pretty much just a punk zine ran by Sakevi and a bloke from Lip Cream? Or was it Laughin Nose?

Unfortunately I only have scans of the front, back, and spine of issue 2.

The third issue is from when the magazine got taken over by Sakevi and became the strange, arty "Performance Of War".
