"A cult deconstruction of Japanese rock music, and reveals what really happened when east met west after world war two. It explores the clash between traditional, conservative japanese values and the wild rock 'n' roll renegades of the 1960's and 70's, and tells of the seminal artists in Japanese post war culture, from itinerant art house poets to violent refusenik rock groups with a penchant for Plane Hijacking!"
Since looking into some of the bands mentioned i'd personally reccomend
Les Rallizes Denudes - Heavier Than A Death In The Family
Strung Out Deeper Than The Night
The Night Collectors
Night Of The Assassins
Enter The Mirror
People Can Choose
Quite the opposite to the above are a modern Japanese band i thought might be worth mentioning i heard they were playing the great escape unfortunately i missed them but i think the singles pretty good you can hear them on there myspace
And finally my favourite of all! ENJOY!
And a more recent discovery shown to me by a few friends, who were playing in the newly reformed London & Brighton in Peckham last night are london based Psychedelic / Experimental / Rock band Bo Ningen. I'm not too sure about the stuff they have on there myspace but the youtube videos look really exciting and there press picture is fucking great
