It all started around October 2003. Billyboy Threenote emailed me saying I "need to hear this new band from Japan called I Excuse!". Spastic Leatherface inspired brilliance that I had to learn more about... My new obsession had begun! Scouring the net for any new information was long and there wasn't much of anything around. The "un-official I Excuse site" was born. Soon after I discovered more Japanese greats like the Lovemen and The Urchin. Since there was next to nothing around the net on them either I started making additional j-punk pages for here. Then with the move to a pay server I revamped this site and renamed it the j-PUNK Chronicles. To date there's pages on eight different j-punk bands and a fairly complete Snuffy Smile catalogue page. If you have any pictures/info or just know a great new (or old) band I should hear please feel free to get in touch! News from Japan is hard to come by in the West...
