Guitar Wolf Discography Part One

I'm a huge fan of the Japanese horror cult film Wild Zero, which is where I discovered the joy of Guitar Wolf.

From Wikipedia:

Guitar Wolf is a three-piece garage punk band founded in Japan in 1987. The band is known for songs with piercing vocals and an extremely loud style of noise rock which emphasizes heavy distortion and feedback. They coined the phrase "Jet Rock 'n' Roll", which they also used to describe their musical style — an energetic cross between The Ramones, rockabilly, classic punk, and noise rock. It is a part of Sony Music Japan's Ki/oon Records division.

The band has released nine studio albums internationally as well as a live album, numerous singles, and a greatest hits album called "Golden Black." The band members have also been featured in two B-grade science fiction horror movies, "Wild Zero" and "Sore Losers." A collection of Guitar Wolf's most popular videos and live performances have been compiled
into a limited edition DVD entitled Red Idol. In March 2005, bassist and founding member Billy, also known as Bass Wolf, died of a heart attack at the age of 38. His replacement in the band, bassist U.G., has become a permanent member of Guitar Wolf and now rounds out the trio which currently consist of band members Seiji (Guitar Wolf): U.G. (Bass Wolf); and Toru (Drum Wolf).

Dolemite R.I.P. (Rudy Ray Moore 1927-2008)

DISCLAIMER: ADULT CONTENT!!!!! Sorry, kids....this one's for grown-ups...

Due to just sheer laziness and procrastination on my part (plus, Moore's death happening right smack dab in the middle of prep and posting of the Mighty Marvel Monsterbash 2008), I didn't get around to paying tribute in a timely manner to a wordsmith and comedian that has brought me a lot of joy over the years: Rudy Ray Moore (March 17, 1927 – October 19, 2008). Well, today I plan on rectifying that...

Many of us out there only know him from his blaxploitation comedy films of the 1970s, specifically the inafamous Dolemite (1975) and it's sequel, The Human Tornado (1976), but the man had a discography and filmography that would put most to shame:


  • Below the Belt (1959)
  • Beatnik Scene (1962)
  • Comedian is Born (1964)
  • Let's Come Together (1970, recorded 1967)
  • Eat Out More Often (1970)
  • This Pussy Belongs To Me
  • Merry Christmas, Baby
  • Cockpit
  • Return of Dolemite
  • Sensuous Black Man
  • Dolemite for President
  • Zodiac
  • I Can't Believe I Ate the Whole Thing
  • Jokes by Redd Foxx
  • Live in Concert
  • The Player - The Hustler
  • House Party: Dirty Dozens Vol.1
  • The Streaker
  • Dolemite Is Another Crazy Nigger
  • Sweet Peeter Jeeter
  • Turning Point
  • Close Encounter of the Sex Kind
  • Good Ole Big Ones
  • Hip Shakin' Papa
  • Greatest Hits
  • This Ain't No White Christmas
  • Raw, Rude, and Real
  • 21st Century Dolemite
  • Hully Gully Fever
  • Genius of Rudy Ray Moore
Filmography: pay tribute to the man that many have credited as the Godfather of hip-hop and rhyme, I'll be sharing a few things from Moore's discography from my collection so that, even though the man may not be with us anymore....his words sure as hell can still make us laugh. Enjoy....
