Biography

1. Hardcore Band
2. Japanese session band
3. Post-punk indie funk from Edinburgh, UK

1. Killing Time started under the name Raw Deal.The band first released demo tracks on the Blackout! compilation “Where The Wild Things Are…”, and others. They signed to In-Effect/Relativity records shortly after that. Forced to change their name because of a UK glam act with the same moniker, the band rechristened Killing Time, and released their Brightside album in 1990. For several years the band played regionally and went out to the West Coast for a few shows with SOIA. With escalating violence and less punk rock camaraderie at it’s shows, the band went on an indefinite hiatus with members exploring various other projects. After a year or so of dormancy, KT resurfaced and began playing some shows. Soon after they released the Unavoidable EP on Blackout!, a blistering 3 song EP that showcased that the band lost none of their power during the time away. This was followed in 1997 by their second album, The Method. Soon after the release of this album, the band called it quits again. In 2005, KT was back for a series of sold-out reunions, a CBGB matinee, and ill fated scheduled appearances at the now defunct Hellfest and Posi-Numbers. The band played a reunion gig at the 2006 NYHC Superbowl Of Hardcore and randomly plays other shows.

2. In 1982, then Chakra members Bun Itakura(板倉文), Ma*To (藤井将登), and Kazumo Shimizu (清水一登) seperately started an experimental unit. The band began as “暇潰し” (‘himatsubushi’), or ‘waste of time’ in English. In 1983 the trio began to perform live.
