I wrote a four-part primer on Japanese raw punk, which website Last Rites kindly published this week. My 'Kawakami Forever!' feature starts with a look at legendary noise punks Disclose and then goes on to highlight around 30 other rowdy Japanese punk bands. It was a total blast to write. I hope it's a total blast to read. Huge thanks to the Last Rites crew!
