On Fumes (2021)
TOKYO LUNGS is me on guitar, bass and vocals, and Simon, from THE DOMESTICS, on drums. I write a lot of songs and THE DOMESTICS already had a backlog of them to learn, so TOKYO LUNGS was born as an outlet for some more of them. Currently a studio-only project, we put out a 9 song 7" E.P. in 2020. it went down so well with hardcore afficionados that we put out a 24 song LP called Soul Music in 2021. the On Fumes video was a taster for that album. all filmed on smartphones and then edited together.
"Can I just say “this is a killer hardcore punk record” and just stop after that? Two dudes, twenty-four songs, nineteen minutes—gruff, fast, screaming raw guitars, just a killer hardcore punk record." (MAXIMUM ROCK 'N' ROLL)
We Surveil Us (2021)
The second video to accompany the Soul Music album was for We Surveil Us. Again shot on smartphones... Covid 19 has made necessity the mother of invention, or whatever the saying is!
“The UK is now a one party dictatorship, and Covid 19 continues to keep everyone inside and away from the things we like…TOKYO LUNGS are half of THE DOMESTICS, bashing out 24 songs in just 20 minutes; there is no time for any padding or filler, it’s just straight ahead, fast punk that doesn’t hang around waiting for your approval, it demands your attention. This is how punk should sound in 2021” (SUSPECT DEVICE)
We have a split 7" with Leicester's FERAL STATE due for release over summer 2022.
