"Adults are stupid," says Shinji Okoda, who is better known in Hiroshima as "Guy," the vocalist for hardcore punk band Origin of M and owner of Disk Shop Misery and Bloodsucker Records. At 52, he certainly appears to have some authority in the matter.

Just one night earlier he was crowd-surfing while simultaneously screaming into a microphone at To Future, an annual concert he helps organize that marks the Aug. 6 atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

At this moment, however, he's sipping coffee and relaxing at a restaurant downtown.
