Punk/Hardcore and Underground Releases From Koenji to Eternity
If you are a fan of the underground and/or punk/hardcore music, Base in Koenji is as the name describes: your home base for such music releases. Opening its now completely sticker-and-poster-covered-doors in 1997, Record Shop Base has continued to provide CD’s, vinyl, cassettes, DVD’s, T-shirts, punk zines and more to underground-hungry fans in the area. CD’s are mostly used, and about 70% new and 30% used vinyl is becoming a bigger seller more and more.
Not limited to brick and mortar, you can also buy online- they ship internationally. From Koenji rock and underground artists and throughout all Japan and abroad, Base is ready to serve you punk, hardcore, punk-related metal, and underground music the Koenji way.
