Guitar Wolf consists of a bunch of punk veterans from Japan. Founded in 1987, the trio is known for songs with piercing vocals and an extremely loud style of noise-influenced punk which emphasizes heavy distortion and feedback. They call themselves “jet rock’n’roll” as their very own style presenting energetic and powerful garage rock. In 1994 their debut LP, Wolf Rock!, was recorded in the guitarist’s basement and released in America. The following tour overseas gained much attention internationally. After an in-store performance at a New York City record store, they signed with Matador Records, under which they made 3 important albums over the 90s.


In 2005, the former bassist passed away from a heart attack at the age of 38. Current members are Guitar Wolf (Seiji), Bass Wolf (U.G.) and Drum Wolf (Toru). The band also have their own line of Jet clothing, including jackets, pants, T-shirts and belts as complements of Guitar Wolf’s iconic identity.

The Diders

Largely influenced by the 70s Japanese garage/ hardcore, The Diders has shown much love for those old school punk bands. They regard Johnny Thunders as their music icon. Rooted in the fiercest local live scene, they also absorb much energy from the chaos.
