Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Collection: The Rough Guide To The Music Of Japan
|This is a very adventurous CD, with its roots in traditional Japanese music, but its sounds often immediate and fused with modern genre. No track better explains this phenomenon than the Surf Champlers' eerie and magnetic "James Bond Theme." This is not for the trad fanatic, but it sure is cool!|
Picks: James Bond Theme

Sanshin Ska Electro Surf (Instrumental)
The Surf Champlers play havoc on the head of the spies of Europe. Ska rhythms, keys, tweaky bass, glissandoes, and lead sanshin. "James Bond Theme" is an adventure in the most original sound envelope I've heard in a long time. There aren't enough stars for this little gem! Completely cool!
