I just found this funny video of a Cosmic Neurose show a couple of weeks ago in Tokyo. Tokyo Zoocore! Crazy helicopter view of the moshpit. Try to find the singer and hear the guys on the balcony laugh…

There is a crazy interview interview with these guys in my zine, which is really really coming out within a week!


The making of zine Jagged Visions #3

Finally I started with the last part of making my zine about Japanese punk&noize and my favorite thing to do:  the lay out. Of course it took much longer than planned to do everything. I had all the interviews finished a couple of months ago, but then i decided to write some articles myself about Japan and that took much longer than expected.  The problem is that a certain moment you just have to say to yourself to finish it , because you can keep correcting and adding things, but it will never be perfect anyway. So i started the cutting and pasting yesterday for the interview with Emily of koenji calling:

cut and paste

Here is some of my cut out material, including a Japanese news paper Asahi from the 50’s.

Material for the zine

So yeah I hope to finish it within a couple of weeks from now!!!!

And my absolute number one:

Check out this great video made by Mr Aiq which shows the  intense  faces pulled by the guitarist of the Japanese band Slang on their US tour Texas.  I guess this pretty much sums up everything that is great about Japanese Hardcore! Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh…..
