Up-and-coming punk bands in Osaka, Japan / 関西で要注目のパンクバンド

I've been hanging around going to shows in the Kansai area, and I wanted to share a few bands I think everyone should now about that I haven't seen on any/many Japanese punk band lists. Check it!



Known as a two-bass noise crust punk band, their lineup is changing with one bassist going on vocals only and a new high school kid on guitar. Looking forward to their new style. Their overpowering noise is complemented by awesome riffs and fast beats.

Buzzcocks plus Gang Green plus Japanese lyrics and little angst mixed in. Love these guys.

Gang Green+日本語の歌詞+青春をかき混ぜた結果。このバンドめっちゃ好き。

manchester school≡ "Last Scene" (official music video):

Flat Sucks

Really raw old-school hardcore punk, with humorous lyrics and performance. The members are really interested in touring outside Japan, with past ventures to Southeast Asia.

Hitoga Atsumaruto Rokuna Kotoganai / Flat Sucks -

KK Manga

Leading the "scum punk" scene in Osaka. Usually barf on stage and trash their gear by the end. Unforgettable live performance.
