The Crazy Satsumas (also known as TCS!) are an experimental punk band from an unspecified region of Japan. The band are well known for their bizarre lyrics and productivity - releasing six albums in the space of two years.

The band came into being in late 2005 playing countless gigs in small venues. Their debut single came out in early 2006. The first two releases were funded and distributed by the band themselves. After creating a buzz amongst those in the know throughout the punk/metal underground the band were signed to acclaimed extreme metal label Negative Records. Negative Records have released five of the six available TCS! albums.

The band's most prominent member is Rudolf Schlong. Schlong, unlike any other member, features on all their existing recordings and also writes most songs.

TCS! are currently recording their forthcoming album Satsuma Republicin a castle in eastern Bulgaria. Rumour has it that members of black metal act Black Forest may be involved.
