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

Banzai! Begone Dull Care On Your tubes!

Oh my time flys when you're consitantly drunk. It slipped my notice that Begone! is now over a year old and we're creeping towards the 30,000 page views despite how niche this blog is so thanks for all the interest and I hope the horde continues to grow. Also a special mention to those I've actually had a chance to meet thanks to this blog. Luke & friends, the Totems guys and a couple of other people whom my drunken, shirivelled brain cannot recall. And also to those who have contacted me through email. Thanks and apologies if I've not gotten back to a few people. I would make some sort of excuse but I'll be honest I'm just lazy and a cunt. Keep bugging me though and I'll eventually get back to you.

Anyway I recently set up a dedicated youtube channel to upload the huge mound of live footage I've collecting since getting my camera a few months back. Sound isn't great but there's some interesting stuff in there I think. You can find the channel HERE.
