This week on The Spindle, Marc Masters and John Howard give Japan Bashing Vol. 1 a spin. Featuring The Boredoms, UFO Or Die, Omoide Hatoba, and Hanadesha, this 1990 comp from the Japanese label Public Bath blurs the lines between noise and noise rock.

About The Spindle: The 7-inch record isn’t just a format—it’s an art form. On each episode of The Spindle podcast, music writer Marc Masters and music historian (and music maker) John Howard dive into a great 7-inch, dissecting its background, impact, and the reasons why it stands out as a small plastic piece of music history.
