Hi, first post here although I've lurked for ages. Anyway, In about 2 weeks time I'm moving to Tokyo from the UK for at least a year. So basically, can anyone recommend me any decent record shops / places to find out about gigs? Apart from the obvious, Metal, I'm also into Noise / PE, Psychedelia (Especially the Japanese bands like Mainliner, Les Rallizes Denudes, High Rise, Fushitsusha etc) Punk / Hardcore etc

Cheers!

If in central Shinjyuku (which you will most likely be if in Tokyo at some point) Disc Union is worth a look. About a minute walk away from the station.

Record Boy had some really awesome stuff when I was there.

It's at Koenji station, though the map on the site is really vague. I had to ask some local youngsters (who, thank goodnes understood English) the way. But highly recommended!

Of course there are "central" areas for different types of music, but Tokyo is pretty scattered when it comes to gigs etc.
shibuya and Shinjuku has a lot of everything and you'll probably find most of your metal gigs are there, Koenji and Shimokitazawa are best places for punk but having said that I stumbled upon a Keiji Heino gig the first night I went to Koenji (p.s. I dont think Fushitsusha plays anymore, just KH).

The disk Union store in Shinjuku isn't that good for metal, but the Shibuya one is decent.
Agreeing with the others, Record Boy is great.
