Kushikatsu Records – Music from Japan to the World

We want to expose and promote our favourite Japanese bands to curious music fans and the growing community of converts. We want to give everyone the opportunity to buy this great music at affordable prices.

Label boss Alan Farmer set up Bearos Records in 1998 to promote new acts from the West Midlands (UK). With over 70 releases, we arranged numerous showcases for Rough Trade (London) and BBC Radio. Bearos acts also recorded radio sessions for John Peel and Jon Kennedy (XFM).

Alan is still passionate about music and is a regular visitor to Japan, squeezing in as many gigs and networking opportunities as possible and expanding his extensive CD and vinyl collection!

We are not after profit; your purchases will fund future releases, media promotion and even help Japanese bands to personally bring their music on tour to the UK and Europe – that’s the really exciting bit!
