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

Apologies for the recent lack of posting. An explanation is in order. I recently moved to a new place to start up a share house. The good news is that we're almost done setting up and we soon hope to be holding our own music, art and exhibition events. The bad news is that due to various complications we I won't be online until what is looking to be the middle of April. Unfortunately that means Begone... Will be on temporary hiatus until I can get back online. So sit tight for now and I pro use a wealth of uploads when I come back.

Also if anyone has any good suggestions for naming our house please leave a comment or mail me. I'm drawing blanks.

To be continued...
