  1. Hey Masa! I think this is the only post I’ve seen here where people are laughing and having real fun… This is very good to see, because in my country, mass media always talk of Japan to speak of suicide and depression. But I know some japanese people are very cheerful and fun. At least punks! Thank you! Fuck Me! I like a lot some japanese bands as The Gerogerigegege and Melt Banana.

  2. Wow in America all the Punks are pissed off, I guess it has a happy feel over there cuz these guys are not even slam dancing.
    Stinkfinger

  3. Punk is absolutly fucking-rock-and-roll there as it is here man those picx got totaly stoiced (hyped) dude I just feel like jumping on stage and mooning everyone as I steal the mic and throw myself on the crowed!

  4. love it! You can see the same kind of pictures in The American’s jerk blog/homepage.
    Shame the pictures take so much time to load…(but hey whose fault is it anyway…)

  5. This is by far my favourite site..i always make my friends go here..i will make them all converts!! muhahahaha *Laughs like a mad scientist*
    Those shows look like a lot of fun..i would so be in them…in canada it is hard to find a decent local concert…unless u want to pay 50 bucks to see social distortion or something..jeez…why can life be easier!?
    Fuck you! You fucking rock my rocks off!

  6. Masa – were you dressed like the punks at the live? I notice you had bracelets and painted fingernails. Also – what band played this live?
    ==================from MasaManiA
    No, It’s not me. I am covered with nomal outfit.
    One of the band name is Disclaptes. I don’t know the other band name. but I love Puck, Yehhh

  7. Punk in Japan looks much more enjoyable then in Canada which I am from. Here they are all just standing and tapping their feet..its a discrase. But at most punk shows there are like 5 people who I refer to as “squeegee punks” cause they carry squeegees for washing car windows, that start a mosh pit. At most there are 20 people at the local shows. While emo bands like fucking Simple Plan have thousands. Fuck emo and Fuck emo kids. I hate it all.

  8. Hey Masa, don’t these people get mad that you take random pictures of them? Just curious.
    Take care, awesome photos!
    ======================from MasaManiA
    Before they get mad, I get mad.

  9. This looks really good. I’ve got lots of photos like this from going to these gigs for over 20 years.
    Melt Banana and Ex-Girl are the only two Japanese bands I’ve seen live, both excellent.
    I like your site very much, a creative use of webspace, keep it up 🙂

  10. kinda cute looks like u.s. twenty years ago,what took you soooooooo loooonnnnggg time????? love your culture. so fun aye!!!!!!!!!

  11. I love your blog man! Its great to see how you live in Japan, that Punk thing looks wicked!
    ===================from MasaManiA
    THank you

  12. masamania,
    I am student in tokyo. I am as poor as I could be but though, if it is possible I would like to buy one of your works with your sign on it.
    you’re the first person in Japan I really admire, though I met many people in my life that are considered to be えらい.
    if you agree please send me a mail and I will think whether I can pay your price.

  13. Masa, you damn lucky man…
    SG goverment control too many things… 😛
    ============from MasaManiA
    Japan too

  14. Fuck you! You are so great like no one else.
    your pictures are the best.
    I am jealous – fucker!
    i love the punks – they´ve got it right.

  15. Lookin’ good there Masa. We have same kinda gigs here in Finland. Except crowd isn’t so colorful in here. Hope the music wasn’t such crap that I’ve heard when listening to “Japanese punk”. 😉 You guys can’t sing shit in English!

  16. Holy fuck! One of these Suomi bastards saying the Japanese can’t sing English?!?!
    Tell you what, Suomi. Bring your Fin punk shit to Canada, and I’ll find you a dozen Japanese that will not only dive on top of you and fuck you, but fuck you up real good with their English! Every Fin I ever run into that tries to talk English sounds like he has marbles in his mouth, and seems to have his lips stuck together. Except, perhaps, Esa Tikkanen, who is only mildly understandable. So fuck you!
    =========from MasaManiA
    Even though Jap cannot speak english, sing english song, it’s really punk, i think.

  17. awesome pics Masa~! how come you weren’t punked out yourself? I love gosurori. it’s fuckina awesome. tokorode masa-kun tte dokushin deshou? lol. ^_______^; anata no tomodachi ni naritainda. ^_~ henji kudasa~i.
    ==========from MasaManiA
    Thank you, greeting from Tokyo

  18. Masa your site rules! Looks like a wicked party.. I’m from Australia – want to get my band out there – can you help? Visit grandfatal.com check out our songs also some downloads at setfiretomyhome.com. If you like it drop us a line we wanna come there!!!

  19. Looks like the lead singer punk had been reading your site Masa – The fucker has shaved his arse clean!!

  20. OI OI OI
    Masa whats up . . . awesome site.
    I just moved to Tokyo, and I want to see some live shows. Where is this place? Can you tell me where I can see more punk shows?
    doug e fresh
    ============from MasaManiA
    THis live house is “Wall” in Shinjuku. You go live house and get the flyer and you can know it.

  21. I knew real punk…Japanese punk is crap!!! They cant even sing properly. Theyre so desperate to be as cool as us westerners, but its completely impossible. I’m sure British punk bands would just have a good laugh at the Japanese trying to be punks! I had a good laugh though!!!
    ============from MasaManiA
    Do we need to sing properly as a real punk ?

  22. Is that Manhole? I went to punk show there but the crowd wasn’t nearly as hardcore.
    =============from MasaManiA
    No, Shinjuku, Hatsudai, Wall. but it’s depend live show.

  23. i love ur website it rock i think the band look prety cool cheers
    P.S punks not dead rock on
    P.P.S I HATE CHAV, TOWNIES AND KEVS

  24. yo masa, could you check those bands’ names again? I searched for “disclaptes” but it was not found.
    also, if anyone needs info on punk shows in tokyo, keep an eye on the websites/schedules of:
    Kouenji 20000 Volts
    Nishiogi Watts
    Shinjuku D.O.M.
    Shinjuku doctor
    shinjuku antiknock
    yokohama club 44
    yokohama FAD
    umm…
    Ikebukuro Chop (yay! this is where I live)
    Ikebukuro manhole
    umm, there’s also ikebukuro cyber, but it’s full of cyber-punk gothic-lolitas and like pretty-boy dir-en-grey-esque bands
    also keep several eyes out for tokyo bands such as:
    vivisick
    gauze
    exclaim
    fuck on the beach
    conga fury
    king goblin
    forward
    freaks
    d.s.b.
    …many more!
    also melt banana is playing bottoms up this 18th
    ==============from MasaManiA
    This is this band’s site
    http://www1.odn.ne.jp/~ceq80300/

  25. i’ve seen some cool stuff on here but this is the coolest yet!!!!…old school as hell,this is what a punk show is all about!!!…DIIIIIIIIIVVVVVVEEEEEE!!!!!..lol,awesome shit!!!…keep it comin’

  26. Yay! You know, I’m going to Tokyo soon. Could you recommend me any good places to go and see cool bands?

  27. I would like to see those guys in a metal/punk gig in Belgium.they die instantly.The moshpits in Belgium are f*cking sick!!!!!!

  28. This seems awesome. It looks like the soul of punk is still alive out there. Old school stuff (that i hope they made themselves) and everybody just having fun and going crazy. But I want to know…is punk still really alive there or are they just immitating the western movement that happened so long ago? As long as they just keep focusing on not caring about their image and having fun, everything will be fine.

  29. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    THAT’S SO INTERESTING & CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I WISH I WANT TO BE LOOKS LIKE BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    AND THE FINISHED GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!! GUYS

  32. Cheerio an toodle Pip!!!
    greets from germany
    excuse my bad english;-)
    Its now 02:05 am. i am drunk and i found this site on a search for funny pics…..god my english is to bad…….
    Anyway …
    The pictures remember me a little bit on german punk concerts and partys, always rough but funny.
    by the way i never see a japanese punk in my whole life….
    but it looks like they are in the same way funny like every other punks ( naked butts and dance and drinking!)
    have a nice time!!!

  33. I knew real punk…Japanese punk is crap!!! They cant even sing properly. […]
    ============from MasaManiA
    Do we need to sing properly as a real punk ?
    ========================from mogger
    Where is everyone getting this “properly” crap? British punk bands didn’t sing properly, and they did it on purpose.
    If you sing “properly” you are not punk! There is no “properly” in punk, punk is a big fuck you to properly!!!!!!
    The only punk bands that sing properly are American punk bands who are more like boy bands (aka Backstreet Boys) than punk bands.

  34. Thought you might be interested in these rare punk pics from the London Punk and new wave Scene. I was a rock photographer in London between 1976 – 1984. I worked for NME, Sounds, Record Mirror, The Face. I posted a few on Flickr which is the first time they have been seen in 25 years.

  35. You know I think rite now the Japanese in those pics have a better idea of what punk is compared to kids of this generation in the usa.
    Punk is about saying fuck you to the normal, alot of the bands I’ve seen cant sing and lucky if you can understand them anyway.
    why complain about japanese? real punk is saying fuck it and you through music.
    Those guys got it rite
    Masa, you got a nice view into real japan through your site.

  36. man fuck you japanese people rock.Why come on this site just to say something bad? man you must lead a sad and pointless life.
    love the site masa keep up the good work!

  37. I just noticed something I hadn’t caught before…
    Look back at the fourth picture from the bottom.
    What is the one guy trying to do to the other guy’s crotch? Interesting timing, Masa. Only two people without a fist in the air-one with his head on the ground and the other a little too interested in his crotch. Funny, Masa.
    I really should get around to visiting Japan, someday, even if it’s just for the music.

  38. OMG I wanna go!!!!! so kakkoii!!!
    japanese youth are way cooler than americans lmaoo
    this reminds me of NANA,have you seen the anime or read the manga? u should, she’s hella punk lol
