Prepare to lube up. Trip Men are thrashing about in their amazing New Jack Swing meets punk rock combo “Jack Boozer.”
Mashing up styles can be fun, sometimes it can be a disaster. TRIP MEN skirt the issue by making high energy rap over sped up new jack swing horns and beats and throwing in some electric guitar to balance things out. Surprise! It works.
The director of this crazy video is Kussy Pussy. Hooray!
TRIP MEN is rolling your way with their album I’ll Be Back slated for a 12.18.2013 release. Score it at Yesasia or CDJapan.
Trip balls at the band’s official website.
Get red in the face with anger with Gagaga SP. “Jidai wa Mawaru” is a mouthful of words that stutters its way out with the help of scary energetic lead singer’s Cozzak Maeda.
It’s punk at it’s best. Even better is the Sunset Bus T-shirt. Nice.
Gagaga SP have a new album Kudamaki Otoko no Akitaran Seikatsu

We dig into some Halloween Candy in November and open up the new SiM album Pandora.
The cool this is using my new iPhone 5s and it’s front facing camera now takes full frame video. Also Adobe Premiere effects is allowing me to adjust my audio and background soundtrack levels better!
Now I just need to figure out to upload at a higher quality! Still I hope you enjoy these, because I’m having a blast making them.
Byousatsu Endorphin tries to feed you something tasty in their punk blast “Dies in Memories.”
It’s a speedy dead milkmen type single that’s shouty, jittery and over before you know it. Can they kick it? Yes they can. I think I just died.
Byousatsu Endorphin’s album 19 memories, for laughing and dying was released on 9.11.2013. Buy it at Amazon.jp.

Punk Ska Collabo time! Tokyo Ska Paradise and all their members decide to go the extra yardage and get 10-Feet on board for their collaboration single “Senko.”
The song is a great mix of punk ska and a KILLER rap break down that will get you jumping around. We almost get the whole song for this, too, but alas, it’s gets chopped at the end.
If you love it, you should buy it. Senko is out 12.4.2013 at Yesasia and CDJapan.
Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra’s official website is here. 10-Feet’s is here.
I do like some good pop punk. Thank goodness ember is here to just rock it out in “I Do.”
It’s a no frills performance video of the guys cranking it for 2 minutes with teenage smarm lyrics calling you a liar, a cheater and a bitch.
Their album New Neighbors arrives on 11.6.2013. Welcome them at Yesasia or CDJapan.
The ember will spark at pizza of death’s official website.
Boobie Trap get off the shitter to bring punk back with the rather harmonic “Break My Wall.”
Nothing says punk more than mooning your audience, and the lead singer does so with a wink and a nod as he sings some rather inspired and lovely lyrics. The song then turns into some really great pop punk that is focused and driven and comes to a complete halt when we return back to bathroom humor. Jolly good show.
Expect more shennanigans from Boobie Trap’s album Walk the Line out 11.13.2013 at CDJapan and Yesasia.
Read more about the band’s 1st full album at Boobie Trap’s official website.
Metalheads get your thrash on. NOT A NAME SOLDIERS are bringing the punch you in the face metal track “Limits Hanging Around…”

Their second full album SIGNS drops on 10.9.2013 at CDJapan.
Forget your name at NOT A NAME SOLDIERS official website.
Don’t give up on NUBO, because they “Can’t give up.” Their road tour video for “Can’t give up” shows just how much blood, sweat and tears the band puts into their performances.
Underneath the growly punk is a ton of sweaty dudes rocking their butts off. They look exhausted after every gig.
You could give a little and support the band. NUBO’s Human Hymns hits on 10.16.2013 at CDJapan.
Only noobs haven’t visit NUBO’s website yet.
For the love of skinny jeans, emo punk rockers Peanuts for the Party Boy laugh their way through a cross country race in “HAHAHA.”
Search your bright colored wardrobe for your flashy pants and your crayola primary color shoes, cuz Peanuts for the Party Boy are bringing it back. God help me I was a skinny runt as a teen, and luckily this scene didn’t exist then. Honestly, I might have been this dorky. Still, Peanuts for the Party Boy are all about having fun and what’s wrong with that?
“HaHaHa” lets you laugh along with the group as each member gets tempted and knocked out of the race. I particularly loved the guy shooting Roman Candles at the guys while they ran.
As for the song, you get some punky and whiney emo rock with your occasional heavy chord chug. It’s harmless and kind of fun. I think they call it easycore. Eh?
Peanuts for the Party Boy have The Hangover Anthem album out today folks 9.11.2013. Score it at CDJapan and Yesasia.
P-boys and P-girls should like Peanuts for the Party Boy on Facebook.
