Is there any way to identify the countless bootlegs made by this guy? Like specific cassettes he used, printing or card stock used? I don't think i own any of them myself. But i'm looking for originals of a lot of the stuff Seki did bootleg. So i'm asking to be able to avoid them.

To touch on the title of the topic. His own VS label. Is it true that his label was not active during the 80s at all? But rather something he started during the 90s and went into the 00s?

This was maybe not worthy of a thread but i struggled to find a place for it elsewhere.

I would assume it was active in late 80’s, as label put out also compilation stuff, including Japanese artists of that era. I doubt label was widely acknowledged or ”popular”. It did not seem to be so much part of Japanese noise, as it was so much based on UK PE worship & copycat methods. At most obvious when including things like playing Whitehouse LP with added own vocals, hah..

Most of these tapes are quite fun and clumsy. Very over the top, amusing japanese-english kind of track titles with german terms thrown in.

Whether guy was bootlegger of euro PE releases and blatant copycat with pretty much zero personal input, I do have the soft spot for this level of ridiculousness. Imperial Japan, UK PE worship, WWII german incidents and a bit of scatology and anal obsession thrown together. Can’t be *that* bad, haha..

Hehe, that Whitehouse thing you mentioned, was that on one of the compilations or are you referring to a "Come Org bootleg" with counterfeit material?

Im interested if anyone wanna sell something VS. Some of it is blocked on discogs.

According to one user, this comp was "Unofficial/homemade cassette from the 1990s/2000s."
https://www.discogs.com/Various-Volkssturm/release/837807

"Bootleg cassette from Japan, purporting to be from 1985."
https://www.discogs.com/The-Graveyard-Endlösung/release/837783
Thats confusing because how is it unofficial when its his own project and label? Or is this material from other bands purporting to be his own?

Boot info:

Maybe he was active in 80's? But doesnt seem too crazy if its all done during 90-00 purporting to be from 80's haha
