Call And Response Records has a new compilation out now! Curated by Ian Martin, author of the book "Quit Your Band! Musical Notes from the Japanese Underground", this album features 17 bands from various areas of Japan, revolving around genres such as post-punk, industrial and noise rock. And as the title suggests, the CD comes with a download code so that, if you wish, you can throw away this CD immediately, and then hopefully go to a show as fast as you can.
Release events will be held in Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Sendai, Kyoto, Tokyo and Nagoya. The one in Tokyo will be held on November 11 at Shinjuku Motion, with NOISECONCRETEx3CHI5, Second Apartment, JEBIOTTO, Narcolepsin, P-iPLE, MELT-BANANA and Waikiki Champions. Find details of all shows here.
