Here we have an entertaining diversion to start the work week, a self-professed article about a “subculture of a subgenre of a subculture” from our Japanese field office. Crust pants? Our American minds know nothing of them, but learn we shall. Not the usual TB fare, and we’re not turning fashion mag, but I thought it was culturally interesting and funny. This will hopefully tide you over for a few days whilst I finish editing the next reviews column (Part One). April already? FUCK. And Japanese labels and bands, please take note of Jesse’s contact info in the column and on the contacts page, our man in Osaka is ready and willing to take on any and all review materials.
