Apparently, Juggler Records out of Portland Oregon has the US rights to The Blue Hearts. They once advertised a 12 song CD titled Blast Off!, but according to a guy at vradio, Juggler does not have any merchandise left for sale.

I've read 55 pages of this on and off over 3 years. Haven't gotten to the Blue Hearts part yet. It's a diary-like account of a punk musician in Fukuoka. A fun read.

MIHO has a page devoted to the High-Lows.
