In my ongoing quest to dig through every digital dollar bin there is to find weird shit, I somehow ended up spending more time than any rational person would poking around looking at stuff from Singapore. Why Singapore? A random click at Radio Infusion. After a couple oddball instrumentals, I went looking for an image and landed on a gallery of Asian record covers. Consider that LP cover above. You know you want to hear what the hell that sounds like. That's just one of hundreds of album covers in the gallery. Your evening would be shot too.
Here's the instrumentals that instigated tonights distraction. There were a lot of instrumental Ventures wannabes back then. Technically, they were proficient, but the instrumentation and the production makes them sound a little off. That's what I dig about them. If you don't compare them to Western instrumental bands, you'll find ample weirdness. There's more at Radio Diffusion. The images are two unrelated bands from Singapore, because that's how these wild goose chases start.
