Friction - Maniacs

Founded by Reck (aka Kawashima Akiyoshi who was also in ◯△▢ and Teenage Jesus And The Jerks) and Chiko Hige (who was in ◯△▢, Chance Operation and The Contortions), Friction were one of the first Japanese punk bands. This provides an excellent overview, with one disc of studio output and one set of live recordings.

Double CD jointly released on Pass Records and P-Vine Records in 2007.

Excellent record. Excellent band.

I'm just surprised they don't mention it when it's a cover ("fire", "telegram sam"), it's not even on their official site.
