    • Synopsis
    • Since their formation of the band in 1987, the “bloodthirsty butchers” has been leading the “Japanese Hardcore Scene”. Despite never hitting the big time, they have done various gigs with artists such as FUGAZI, FLAMING LIPS and RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and gained respects from various artists. However, among the members, there are conflicts and difficulties. The camera sharply depicts their discords and the members describe their mixed emotions. But they will never stop and the band will go on. The film reflects their naked truth and shows the most primitive aspect of the band in general.
