Stray Cat Rock – Sex Hunter/Furyo Syojo Mako

CD (Item 467084) Ultra Vybe (Japan), Early 70s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.70 12

Freaky fuzzy grooves from two obscure Nikkatsu movies – both of them scored by So Kaburagi in a great blend of heavy drums and tripped-out guitar – with lots of funky moments throughout! The music here almost outdoes some of the best psyche-inspired soundtracks from the US and Europe in the late 60s – and like some of the best of those, Kaburagi brings in some slight jazz undercurrents as well – softening things briefly in a few romantic moments with a saxophone, but mostly relying on fuzzy guitar, go-go drums, and a bit of organ to keep most of the tunes going. A few numbers feature larger backings, and from what we can tell, most of the work here is instrumental only – a whopping 28 tracks in all, with all titles and notes in Japanese!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

L'Umanoide
GDM (Italy), 1979. New Copy
