G.I.S.M. - "Anarchy Violence" 7"


(black vinyl)

Without a doubt, GISM is by far the most infamous Japanese hardcore punk group to ever exist. Their unique take on the style along with the stories of crazed violent live performances, intense visual imagery, and the shroud of mystery has given them tremendous cult status amongst fans and collectors of hardcore punk. GISM was light years ahead of their contemporaries when it came to chaotic, raw, distorted, and incredibly unique sounds, ranking them right beside fellow heavyweights GAUZE & CONFUSE. Originally released in a hyper-limited pressing of 100 in 1991, “Anarchy Violence” contains 5 of their best early tracks from ’84: “Document One”, “Death, Agonies, & Screams”, “(Tere Their) Syphillitic Vaginas to Pieces”, “Anthem”, “ABC Weapons”, & “Endless Blockades For Pussyfooter”. Features a sleeve with excellent black and white artwork. Available in a limited fanclub pressing of 375 copies on both clear and black vinyl.
