jon, of your list above, super roots 6 is most essential.

from dleone's pitchfork review today:
1988's Onanie Bomb Meets the Sex Pistols ("onanie" being Japanese slang for "female masturbation")

"Onanie Bomb" is the rough English translation of Genbaku Onanies, the very first hardcore band from Japan. "Onanie" is a transliteration of the latin "onanism" which pertains to either sex last time i checked! :-D

By saying "Genbaku Onanies meets the Sex Pistols" they were trying to clue in potential listeners to what the band's influences were.

one more thing jon, that particular set was on a summer afternoon in 1995, the day of an awesome show at the palace in hollywood with thinking fellers union local 282. we ate at a mediocre chinese place across the street (is that place still there?). that was the debut of the "super ae" material in the usa.

Gygax!, have you read the liner notes for the Mukai Chie / Yamamoto Sei'ichi CD? too much funny about LAMONES YOUNG!!

What does "kansai" mean?

Also: Nankai Hawkwind - RFI? (Eye, Nishida of Danse Macabre and Edi from Genbaku Onanies)

Apparently there was a whole series of noise bands whose names were puns on sports team + other band! and some compillation of said bands called Aiyoku Jinmin Juni Kyudan.

The liner notes go on about PRO WRESTLING pun noise bands!

Also, the notes talk about the idea of playing classic punk songs really slow. Hmmm...

Thanks for THE INFO!

NANKAI HAWKWIND
Nankai Hawkwind (Japan 7",Watanabe Records/Underground (Japan)--001--7" single) 1987

No line-up details, but a line-up I was given for their listing in the Guitar Barrio anti discography was: CHERRY--Vocals; EYE**--Vocals; EDDIE--Bass; ISONO--Drums; KITAJIMA--Guitar; MURANAOHITO--Guitar; SUGISAKU--Keyboards.

[Tracks/times?]

A Japanese art/noise supergroup. Their name was a play on the baseball team the Nankai Hawks (now known as the Daiei Hawks) and the English prog band Hawkwind. This single included some strands of the members' hair. [Print status?]

amoeba has that mukai/yamamoto split for $7.99... i'll check it out.

yeah, i am always mispelling japanese words (in romanji) so i am forgiving when i read liner notes or lyrics.

kansai = japanese region where osaka/kyoto are (ie, where boredoms are from).

gygax! (gygax!), Monday, 7 June 2004 14:56 (fifteen years ago) link

damn you gygax - where were you when I was using my memory to fact check this thing?

dleone (dleone), Monday, 7 June 2004 15:02 (fifteen years ago) link

gygax! (gygax!), Monday, 7 June 2004 15:15 (fifteen years ago) link

dleone (dleone), Monday, 7 June 2004 15:19 (fifteen years ago) link

Also, Dominique thanks for the entertaining Boredoms read, but you know ... pitchfork ... ahem.

Ian c=====8 (orion), Tuesday, 8 June 2004 23:18 (fifteen years ago) link

Just heard Super Ae for the first time tonight. For the first ten minutes or so I was like "ah, this isn't anything special", but after hearing where it went from there, wow. This is the shit right here. Also got VCN which I only heard like twice 3 years ago, I'll give it a spin later tonight. Thanks for the tip on Super Ae, Jon.

funny how boredoms were hated in 90s and now everyone's gay for them. stupid trendies wouldn't know an Omoide Hatoba cd if it fell on their fat white Soulseeking face.

Born to Anal, Wednesday, 9 June 2004 04:13 (fifteen years ago) link

Who hated Boredoms in the 90s?

Also, I have an Omoide Hatoba 7" fucker.

HAMBURGER NEURON GROUP (ex machina), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 04:26 (fifteen years ago) link

I couldn't find any of their records in the 90's

AaronHz (AaronHz), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 04:31 (fifteen years ago) link

funny how velvet underground were hated in 60s and now everyone's gay for them. stupid trendies wouldn't know a LaMonte Young cd if it fell on their fat white Soulseeking face.

"Get a life."

my favorite tv show. way to take the bait suckers. the internet is easy.

Born to Anal, Wednesday, 9 June 2004 04:49 (fifteen years ago) link

Sonny A. (Keiko), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 04:56 (fifteen years ago) link

assuming they are grindcore! i really don't know what that means!

Sonny A. (Keiko), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 04:57 (fifteen years ago) link

my hairline isn't good enough for a spock haircut though :(

Sonny A. (Keiko), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 04:58 (fifteen years ago) link

since when is LaMonte Young a V.U. side project?

Anchovie, Wednesday, 9 June 2004 04:59 (fifteen years ago) link

Stand in the place where you weeeeeeere!

haha.
FWIW I heard Omoide Hatoba before the Boredoms. They played their stuff on KPFA in Berkeley's Pitch a Fit almost 10 years ago. Who cares.

oh I couldn't think of a vu side project so I typed the first vu related thing that popped into my head

AaronHz (AaronHz), Wednesday, 9 June 2004 05:00 (fifteen years ago) link

it's like grincore, only you grimace a lot. keep grin(d)ing sonny! xoxo

Hanatarash - "Bank is Dead Eskimo"

Born to Anal, Wednesday, 9 June 2004 05:09 (fifteen years ago) link

Actually since John Cale performed with LaMonte Young before VU, that's like a VU side project in reverse.

You should've heard my dad today when I was listening to VCN:
HIM: What the fuck are you listening to? It sounds like a fucking washing machine!
ME: They're called the Boredoms.
HIM: Huh, I wonder why?
ME: They're from Japan.
HIM: Oh. So that's how they're getting us back for the bomb!

AaronHz (AaronHz), Thursday, 10 June 2004 00:44 (fifteen years ago) link

my dad got a speeding ticket from listening to VCN

HAMBURGER NEURON GROUP (ex machina), Thursday, 10 June 2004 02:17 (fifteen years ago) link

yeah, I read that upthread. Mine fuckin hates the Boredoms. But then he hates Captain Beefheart and Sonic Youth, too. When I was 12 I remember listening to either Goo or Dirty and him saying, "Why don't you just kill yourself?"
