1) Tranquilizer is a techno band.
2) Tranquilizer was a mid-'80s Japanese hardcore punk monster coming from Hokkaido. As usual not a lot is known about those loonies. This one is quite hard to describe, seems that old Hokkaido bands had a very particular sound, even more wild than most Kyushyu noise bands. Could be easily compared to Gudon or Coward flexis, indescribable voice on totally noisy instruments. They released a second flexi in 1986, but doesn’t reach the insanity of this one, just average Japanese punk-core. (Description from 7inchpunk)
