1984 7" EP
01. Real Now
02. Rusty Knife
04. Toy Revolution
Label: AA Records
Cat #: AA 008
Format: 7" EP
The catalog number on the label is AA 007.
COBRA sounds something like a Japanese version of the TOY DOLLS, with their high-pitched vocals and studied pop-punk trappings. "Real Now" is a delicious burst of power-chord pop, but in fact the whole EP demonstrates fine songwriting abilities. Atypical punk for Japan, but strongly recommended.
