These guys are nuts. In the absolutely best way.This was originally released as yet another self-titled 7", released in 1984. It seems they struggled to find names for their releases. In 1999 it was re-released with a whole bunch of extra stuff. Absolute insanity!!
It seems the mid-80's was a sweet spot for some classic Japanese hardcore. And Crow can be thrown right into the mix. I mean, when the first track is called Anarchy Chaos Destruction you're kinda calling your shot. Definite graduates of the Discharge school of hardcore. Very heavy stuff.
Yet another band I know nothing about and didn't discover until the digital age. Deadless Muss ripped up the late 80's with a handful of releases. This is their lone full length, from 1988. And they were apparently one of the few bands to spring for color printing on their album cover.
Ok, so technically we're cheating a little bit today and sneaking in a 90's Japanese band. C.F.D.L. stands for Crazy Fucked-up Daily Life. Fans of the great UK band Disorder might recognize that. They would almost certainly like this EP. It is definitely cut from the same cloth. Here's C.F.D.L.'s 1990 debut.
