Tokyo Damage Report

reup : panda fucker maniac revolution, niku dorei, cps, neji, keruppino

Aug 6 , 2004 YUKIMI NOT DEAD volume 40 @ nishiogikubo WATTS. My pal yukimi is one of the best people ever. By day she’s a respectable corporate claims adjuster. By night she’s a brutal maniac! Her house is full of 1,000 stuffed frogs, which compete for space with her huge obsessive collection of grindcore […]

cps / sex:virgin killer / FxIxD / marbullmen / nanox

Jan 19th @ NAKANO MOON-STEP:   marbullmen a Marbullmen play very generic thrash. The singer and one guitarist go berzerk but mostly it is meh. It's possible that – if there was a big audience moshing – they could have been enjoyable. But on the other hand, thrash without stop-start breaks or mosh parts or […]

cps, cunts JAPAN, coffins, carre, sine, hardcore dude, hair stylistics

 August 21 @ 20000V. "WET PUSSY GETS WILD"  show, put on by Cunts Japan.      CARRE  Carre played noise – a mix of harsh ‘power electronics’ and blissed-out ambient whooshy stuff.  Always kept a really low-pitched oscilator going as a foundation, which is the kind of noise I like.  Their set slowly segued from […]

CUM FOUNDATION @ SHIBUYA O-NEST, 5/24/2008   CUM FOUNDATION live. This is the 10 year anniversary gig of CPS. In fact, all these bands are at least 10 years old. It’s a geezer-fest! Some of the bands were the best bands in Tokyo, but it was one of those gigs where there weren’t enough fans […]

NO FUTURES / C.P.S. / MAISHA live

  somewhere in Tokyo NO FUTURES let’s zoom up closer on the chaos on the right side. . . yes. it is a punk melodica solo with feedback. the plastic tube connects directly to his lungs. the bassist is somehow in The Beatles, while the vocalist has traded his mohawk for this fluffy A Clockwork […]

Anadorei, cps, macrochord, abraham cross @ Ikebukuro ADM

SATURDAY FEBRUARY 7, 2003 Took the girlfriend to see the dominatrix-punk band ANO DOREI (literally, "assholeslave"). Girl-Dominatrix-fronted metal acts are a dime-a-dozen (genitortures, great kat, Judas Priest), but as far as I know anodorei is the first Punk act with such a gimmick. Wait, no, I forgot about the Insaints. (the amazing bay area band […]
