(General Speech Records)
SPEED AND NOISE! The rallying cry of this hardcore band from Sapporo, Japan that existed from 1985 to 1988. Gaizin brought forth a unique sound which could only have come out of the 80's Japanese hardcore scene. Influenced by the trademark raw and abrasive style of the early wave of Japanese hardcore bands like Gai and Confuse, excellent bands from their hometown like Deef, Tranquilizer, and G-Gas, but also the current wave of UK thrash bands like Heresy and Ripcord who along with so many of their countrymen were turning up the speed on hardcore. This 7" serves as an excellent document of the band's history compiling the best tracks from their extremely scarce tape releases, as well as unreleased studio tracks. This sold out in hours when first pressed in 2018, and this is a small final repress on color vinyl, with 80's Japanese style fold out EP jacket.
