LSD- Jast Last 7"EP (LSD Records, Japan, 198?)

Post # 201. Damn, I missed the 200-mark with this. Too bad. Guess you gotta live with another 99 posts. Poor bastards out there.

LSD played Japanese HC the way I’l luvin it. Great cheesy hippie intro and then the total nippon onslaught with nice riffing and over the friggin vocals! What’s really giving me goosebumps is the guitar solo in the first song and the tearful middle part – wonderful kitsch!!! And over 5 minutes long!!!! Isn’t it a crazy idea to mix kinda melodic music with such vocals? Damn, this is great!
Kinda rare piece o’wax, this might explain why LSD seems to be pretty unknown. Now we’re changing that.
Don’t know much to say about this. I’m not sure, but I think I used to have this with a diffferent sleeve once and I also had the band’s only other release, a flexi disc. It was nice too, but nowhere near the intensity of this. Yeah. Well. It’s been a hard week.

    This has been re-issued as an LP and is still available on Schizophrenic Records: (http: //www.schizophrenicrex.com/) along with the Flexi from 1984, The comp. track from Great Punk Hits and a live show from 1984

    I think they turned into G-Zet.

    Awsome stuff.

    Thanks

    Erich how many nazis did you beat up? Did it feel good?

    Overhead distro has a little bit of live footage of LSD in a very odd poor quality clip, the colors are so flushed out that the singer looks like two floating eyballs.

    The regular sleeve has two soldiers facing the camera, the sleeve you have here is the very first press, commonly refered as the suicide sleeve or the yukiko okada sleeve, it was released first but it was either released with few copies or banned (some japanese punks also call it the banned sleeve) the dead girl on the sleeve was a teenage star, you can read more here :

    Thanks Fettah! I too seemed to remember something like only 200 of this sleeve were ever made. Funny thing is: I had 4 more copies of this for my short-lived distro “Kamikaze Attack” (ca. 1987). Then I re-ordered and got 2 or 3 more but with a different sleeve.

    Both their 7inches had 2 covers, the 1st “Destroy” flexi, which was released on ADK, i don’t know of any other ADK release with 2 presses. As for this EP, Fettah is right on this, the scans here are the 1st press (commonlly called “idol suicide” cover). Now i read about that idol which suicide in 86 i suddently have a doubt about the release of that EP, allways been sure it was from 1984 (and the 1st from 83), any comfirmation on that ??

    As evidenced by the original cover photo, this EP was released in ’86. I’d never heard otherwise. Sold it off (with the 2nd cover) ages ago, so very happy to see the Schizophrenic LP appear last year. Everyone should pick that slab up post haste.
