Através de um blog, especializado em som de bandas japonesas, descobri esse cd do S.A, e que foi lançado pelo conceituado selo inglês Anagram Records! S.A é uma banda clássica do punk rock japonês, formada ainda nos anos '80. A banda deu uma pausa em suas atividades e retornou nos '90, com o guitarrista Naoki, que também fez parte de outra grande banda local, o Cobra. Bom, vou tentar descolar meu cd original agora em alguma importadora,e para quem possa interessar segue a capa e texto original que consta no site da gravadora:
Samurai Attack : The Very Best Of Samurai Attack
The Very Best Of Samurai Attack
"Japan's legendary punk rock band S.A. is about to take on the world with their worldwide debut album "Samurai Attack", through the prestigious punk label Anagram Records!!
"Samurai Attack" is the band's first ever 'Best Of' album, with the tracks chosen by the band members themselves from their three classic albums. Also included are two unreleased tracks that can only be heard in this CD. One of the unreleased track is a new version the song "Nothingness" which was originally included in the now legendary compilation album "Oi of Japan"!!
SA originally formed in 1984 and gained an enormous following in Japan before breaking up in 1987. The CDs continued to sell and the legend lived on and on until 1999 when SA reformed. Therein followed a truly prolific release schedule starting in 2002 with the highly successful album "Great Operation", yet another album, a couple of singles, an EP and two music videos - all in the last two years! Not only that, but SA have a new album slated for release in April 2004!
Along with such Japanese bands as The Star Club, Cobra, and Laughing Nose, S.A. is one of the most important and consistent punk bands to originate in the Far East. This is an important milestone for the history of Japanese Punk Rock."
