Our global travels searching for the wildest rock’n roll sounds in existence has so far only yielded one release from a Japanese band (RAYDIOS), until now. To commemorate Slovenly 200, we present, from Kobe, GUTARA KYO, and their self-titled vinyl debut on our Mondo Mongo imprint. “GUTARA KYO” (roughly translated: crazy slovenlies) reminds us of our earliest experiences with hardcore punk as teenagers, pulsing blood to the skull and clotting. There is a youthful fury and hilarity in every track, with painful, ear-piercing skree from start to finish, harnessing both the loose garage punk swagger of TEENGENERATE and the blistering hardcore attack of LOS CRUDOS, with Matsumoto-san shrieking in Japanese for the duration. Previously only available as a CD on Bakudan (JP), this new edition comes on a large-hole 10″ platter and features an insert with lyrics translated to English by Greg Snazz. Mastered for vinyl by Tim Warren.
