Thanatos Of Funk
Killer and cult shamisen electro funk from 1985 Japan!
Minoru "Hoodoo" Fushimi's impossible to find first album finally reissued for the first time ever.
Comes with a 4p insert including the original hand-written insert/comic by Minoru with English translations.
A most wanted and impossible to find first album reissued , in collaboration with Fushimi himself. Thanatos Of Funk is a milestone in Japan's underground music and electro funk/early hip hop history. Entirely self-produced, designed and distributed in 1985 by Fushimi, a high-school teacher by day and music experimenter by night, Thanatos Of Funk is a love-letter to counter-culture, DIY, drum machines and synthesizers blent with some killer shamisen and guitar playing. This is truly unique music.
