Its ideological make-up, however, is not clear. Foreign Skinhead zines have carried reports about Japanese Skinhead music. Among the bands mentioned are Sledgehammer, Bad Vultures, Ouka, Growl Strike, and Gruesome. Their views are not known, although Sledgehammer has been described as a "nationalist" band. One skinzine suggested that SHARP - Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice - has achieved a following in Japan. It said that SHARP bands "attract a couple of thousand to each gig in comparision to a mere hundred to the right-wing gigs." (Anti-Defamation League, 52) Work Cited Anti-Defamation League.
