From their 1987 album "Don't be Swindle"
S.O.B. are an influential and enduring japanese hardcore punk and thrashcore band who were, along with similar thrashcore bands like Siege, pioneers and precursors of grindcore. The group debuted in 1986 with the single Leave Me Alone. In 1990, S.O.B. found international recognition with their split 7 EP with British band Napalm Death, who are also pioneers of this genre with bands like Terrorizer and mostly Repulsion.
In July of 1989, S.O.B. met Napalm Death during a Japanese tour, and Napalm Deaths members Shane Embury and Lee Dorrian played on the record Thrash Night, an EP released by Dorrians label Rise Above. In the same year, the band held a session for John Peels Radio program on BBC.
In June of 1995, after the release of Vicious World (their first experimentation with many sound effects and different song structures), Tottsuan, the bands lead vocalist, committed suicide by jumping onto railroad tracks as a train was moving. Soon after, Kevin Sharp of Brutal Truth took Tottsuans place during live S.O.B. performances, but in 1996, the band announced that Tottsuan had been replaced by Naoto, former bassist of rise of the dead.
In 2003, S.O.B. made a comeback with the release of Still Grind Attitude and a series of re-recorded classics with their most current vocalist Itsushi. They still exist today but are only actively known in Japan.
Released on CD with "Leave Me Alone" in 1993 by Toys Factory.
Early S.O.B. showed the band playing intense hardcore punk/thrash.
Most lyrics are in the band's native Japanese language while some are mixed
with English and Japanese and very few are sung in full English.
