To the people who love all additionally punk rock, skateboard, and “Bring Out Original Zouls”
I found this band from Japan called Chaniwa by accident. The live video sounds like standard punk rock with a little Rancid influence, albeit in Japanese. OK, but the one song working on their Myspace page sounds like a different (and lame) band. They use some skateboard imagery and seem to have appeared on some Japanese skate rock compilations (again, as near as I can tell…) Japanese punk rock? Hell yeah. Let’s hear it from the Blue Hearts fans! Anyone? Come on! Surely you’ve heard of the Japanese Clash? I don’t know what the story is with these Chaniwa guys. Danimal, you are our Japanese proxy corespondent, get your wife on this. Watch the Chaniwa video and see some cool Blue Hearts pics after the jump.
The Blue Hearts? Surely you’ve heard of the Japanese Clash? If you haven’t you can go straight to hell boy. Remember, it aint Coca-Cola, it’s rice. The Blue Hearts are no more, but they put on a blistering live show when I saw them in Chicago in the early 90’s. This shot below is not from that set.
