DISARRAY: 1982-1986: LP

Complete discography from this obscure Japanese hardcore band who were around from ‘82 to ‘86. Two cassettes, single, and a flexi, all of which are here. For me, the flexi is the most crucial with its Discharge stylings and d-beat attack. The single slows things down and has some phaser guitar and shit and almost Burning Spirits-type yelped vocals. The cassettes are a little rough, as expected, but see the band head into faster, noisier territory—less Discharge and more Gauze. I love the A Side of this record but the B Side is for hardcore fans only.
