Thai? Dai! The Heavier Sound of the Luk Thung Underground Finders Keepers


passionate dedication of Chris Menist to put together a mixture of the Luk Thung style (song of the country) and the Luk Krung style (song of the city) unearthed from record stores found in Bangkok, 45 singles and often discarded B-sides. only a few artists appear on other collections in our library. what stands out according to the liner notes is how these artists have adopted various western styles, going so far as to recycle specific riffs (Iron Man, eg.) and melodies, yet make these songs all their own. apparently these tracks were tested at various live crowds alongside reggae and African music at an event called Pardise Bangkok. many these tracks were considered uncharacteristic of the artists’ more conventional releases. therefore you can expect some rougher and more raw experimentation.
