Administrative error

We have just heard our registered address / office provider changed address in March 2014 without telling us.  Consequently we haven't been able to receive any of your mail or demos.  The 2014 sampler is also delayed as a result, however it will definitely go ahead in early 2015.

In the interim, please do not use the London address, listed on the website and various places on the internet.  We will update about the new address as soon as possible.

The Zillatones release Planet Lantau

Sharawaji Records is very proud to announce the release of The Zillatones first EP, Planet Lantau.  It's a sonic portrait of life on Lantau Island by HK's best rock band. First you travel back to the stone age like a VELOCIRAPTOR, and then after that you go to the beach to see nubile asian girls in the MISS MUI WO BIKINI CONTEST, and then after that you do the detective SURF 112 thing (because you ain't been caught stealin' nuthin'), followed by a walk up to CAT CORNER to see what those pesky felines are up to and then its time to go tot the ferry pier and see hordes of feral mainlanders rounded up in the FERAL CATTLE CALL before ending the evening in Lockhart road and stared at by girls using the seductive, but ever so lethal FILIPINA SEX-RAY.
