Welcome! ようこそ!

I set up this blog to hopefully introduce those outside Japan to some of Japan's best music and a taste of Osaka and Kyoto's thriving underground music scene.

Alot of what I post will be CDR's and CD's sold by bands on the Kyoto/Osaka live circuit. Hopefully giving a little exposure to the bands outside Japan. The rest will be Japanese bands from pretty much any and every generation and genre. From 60's Rock'n'Roll and folk to 00's noise and electronica.

If anyone has an issue with me uploading their music please contact me and I'll remove the links immediatley. My intention is to introduce this music to new audiences. So please help support these bands by buying their releases or catching them live if you have the opportunity. Alot of these guys are working full time jobs on top of making great music. Please send comments, complaints, recommendations and seasonal greetings to stinkinhippy@hotmail.com

Tacobonds - Sick Of Listening

This Tokyo 3-piece formed in 2003 much like Panicsmile and Nayuta craft accessible but interesting and off-kilter alt-rock/punk rock mixing elements of post-punk and pos-hardcore in a style reminiscent of late-era Fugazi only slightly less aggresive. Lots of interesting guitar work and twisting tempo changes. "Sick Of Listening" is the bands debut album released back in 2006 and just last month the band released their sophomore album "No Fiction" produced by Panicsmile lead vocalist/guitarist Yoshida Hajime.
