The full-length CD/DVD combo “Osaka Popstar and the American Legends of Punk” arrives in stores worldwide on May 23rd (May 22nd in Europe). Osaka Popstar is helmed by John Cafiero (vocals), backed by a variety of punk legends including Marky Ramone (of the world famous Ramones) on drums, Jerry Only (Misfits) on Bass, Dez Cadena (Black Flag) guitar, Ivan Julian (Richard Hell & the Voidoids) guitar and a guest appearance by outsider music icon Daniel Johnston.
The CD includes a bonus DVD featuring 2 animated music videos created exclusively for this release! John Cafiero has assembled an incredible roster of musical talent as well as an impressive roster of visual artists to render his concepts for the artwork found within the over-the-top booklet and CD packaging.
