"Underground Screams" is a collection of new Asian Man artists from around the world. Asian Man owner Mike Park listened to over 600 demos of underground acts and chose everything from ska, punk, mod, hardcore and indie and shoved it on this compilation. Features tracks by Pama Intl (London), The Common Place(Minneapolis), Clarendon Hills (Berkeley, Ca), Dead Letter Dept. (Toronto) and loads more.
Japan's Nicotine have been playing their punk rock sound since 1993. It's high octane, deft Nippon niftiness. Asian Man Records bring you a compilation of tracks from their Japanese releases, over 70 minutes of music altogether. Influenced heavily by the likes of NOFX (same instrumentation - two guitars, bass and drums) this is no holds barred hardcore punk.
EE hails from San Francisco, California and features Soo Young Park from Seam on guitar / keyboards and Tobin Mori ex-Korea Girl on guitar / lead vocals. The sound is very reminiscent of Seam in many ways. It's not the usual sort of Asian Man skacore sound, being more in a emo style with slow burners developing into epic rockers.
From San Jose, California comes the third full-length release from Asian Man's best skacore outfit The Chinkees. "Searching for a Brighter Future" is a forceful mix of rock-steady, ska, and punk rock. Dealing with a plethora of topics from enforced prostitution of Korean women in World War II to family struggles and racism, the band combines political energy with the smooth sound we've come to expect from this class act.
MU330's seventh full length release is chock full of their own distinct brand of high energy skacore. "Ultra Panic" has the band playing more ska than any of their previous albums. With the help of organist Chaz Boy and saxophonist John Paul Camp III lending their talents, it is obvious after one listen that this is perhaps one of the finest ska releases in the last ten years.
Fancy a dose of crazy Nipponese ska core? Well this is the one for you. This is Potshot's fourth full-length release on Asian Man Records. The album has been out for almost a year in Japan and has sold over 100,000 copies. More of that pop sound that makes everyone smile, as well as lots of oohs and ahhs to go with that big brassy ska sound.
This is a very special show by a very special band! Slapstick were one of the biggest punk rock bands to come out of Chicago. They broke up in 1996, at a time when every major label wanted them. The band re-united in 1997 for a one off reunion show and this is it. Featuring 14 tracks, rare photos and interview clips.
Classic videos from the Asian Man stable all gathered together on this one tape. Promo clips from the likes of MU330, Alkaline Trio, Blue Meanies, Korea Girl, Slow Gherkin, Lawrence Arms, Link 80, Honor System, Slapstick, The Chinkees and more. Also included is bonus live footage from Skankin Pickle, Alkaline Trio and Bruce Lee Band (featuring Mike Park and Less Than Jake).
Just check the insert: page after page of gig after gig after gig. This Asian Man band are tour-addicts now you can witness the energy, the excitement and the non stop fun of the mighty MU330 live show! They have been rockin' and touring together since their debut in 1988---100% commitment.
