RELEASE DESCRIPTION

In 1981, the legendary Japanese punk band "The Stalin" performed in an event called "Answer 81" at a venue called "Taku Taku" in Kyoto, and the previously unreleased live recording has been unexpectedly unearthed and is now available from P-VINE RECORDS. This remarkable find emerged from a vast collection of tapes stored by Jojo Hiroshige (Hijokaidan / Alchemy Records). The live recording features the early members, Michiro Endo, Shintaro Sugiyama, Atsushi Kaneko, and Jun Inui, delivering an intense performance filled with raw energy and tension, transcending over 40 years in the shadows.

The names of tracks for this release were referenced from a handwritten tracklist of the master tape, and some unfamiliar song names included, titled "血の海 Want You", is the song which has renamed later to "飢餓々々帰郷" (Kiga Kiga Kikyou), frequently played Endo's solo act but The Stalin version was never officially released before. Additionally, the thirteenth track, "お前まじかだ (ブタのケツ / Buta No Ketsu), is an arrangement of a song from The Stalin's precursor band, Jiheitai. While it was previously included in bootleg releases, this marks the first-ever official release of the track as well.
