The follow up to the labelï¿½s fastest selling and most sought after 45, the jaw dropping doppelganger Sab-Jam from Sukothai psych rocker Sroeng Santi - a dysfunctional slice of outside punk funk complete with bottles and bells breakdown ï¿½ Thai? Dai! presents 14 slabs of the heaviest Thai funk and psych rockers ever committed to disc. TIP!The styles featured on this compilation fall somewhere between Luk Thung (ï¿½song of the countrysideï¿½) and Luk Krung (ï¿½song of the cityï¿½). Bangkok was a particular melting pot for the evolution of these two genres, the former alluding to musical themes and lyrics aimed at the wider national population, the latter looking westwards with a more urban ï¿½sophisticatedï¿½ audience in mind. The tracks here were experimentations or dice rolling by both little known groups, as well as established figures like Plearn Promdan.
* Finders Keepers Records break new ground yet again with another forward thinking compilation of accidental-world music. Expect the unexpected.
* Officially licensed. Even within Thailand the majority of these tunes remain unissued, so itï¿½s with great pleasure that FK present this glimpse of the strange underbelly of Thai Luk Thung in all its unique, original and outlandish glory - a small snapshot of an otherwise forgotten era gloriously remastered from the original sources with full cooperation from the original label, Sound Of Siam, Co. Ltd.
