How about The Boredoms? Noise/punkish stuff from japan.

I saw them open Lollapalooza 93.

The singer is a guy who was called Yamatzuka Eye, but he's changed his name to something that sounds basically like that. He got connected with the noise/knitting factory avant garde stuff. I'm not familiar with what he's done after the early 90s.

But, he's japanese.

Then, of course, the American band Summercamp seems to be big in japan. This song was on the BASEketball movie soundtrack ... but, all their live stuff seems to be from Japan ...

i mostly know japanese noise stuff







all the things that no sane human would listen to

there's also Les Rallizes Dénudés who were also pretty noisy; their bassist was involved in the hijacking of a plane by a Japanese communist militant group, pretty cool stuff

^ Wow. Other than that first video (which is still worse than any american noise rock band), that was some of the worst shyt i've ever heard.

But, I think that's what they were going for. so good for those bands I guess.
