Open My Records To Avoid Seam Splitting

In order to ship your records to you in the safest way possible, and to avoid seam splits, we recommend removing the record from the jacket when shipping. That said, we will never open sealed records and do this without your permission. If you would like your records shipped to you this way, please add the option featured below to your cart.

We will place your jacket and record inside a FREE protective poly.

Friction is one of the first Japanese punk bands formed by Reck, Chiko Hige, and Lapis in Tokyo in March 1978, and the band is still active. Reck and Chiko Hige had previously been on the NY no wave scene as founding members of James Chance and the Contortions, bringing back the experience and influence to the Japanese music scene. It's no exaggeration to say that the band laid the foundation for alternative music in Japan. P-VINE is proud to reissue all of their albums on vinyl. ??=Friction is their 1st album released in 1980, which is also known as the only album in the period of Masatoshi Tsunematsu participating in the band. Produced by Ryuichi Sakamoto.
