Secret Chiefs 3 "Book M" [label: Web of Mimicry]

A genre-bender the likes of which could only come from a Bungle side project. Surfy, techno infused metal world music. Lots of beats alternating with riffs and sinister Eastern themes.

techno/dance: 2. do we call this breakbeat, 5. fast paced dancefloor track w/flashy violin solos pumpin beat, 7. heart-pounding mix of tr1 with riffage, 13. slow sexy groove, slip slide bass, punchy funk beat, trails off @ 3:50 left
rock: 3. quirky theme backed by crunch electric guit, 6. slow heavy crunch w/flurrying free violin solos, 9. scruffy acerbic surfcore, 10. 1970's rock jam w/sax, 13. funkier jam w/sax
indian: 1. little ditty on an eastern scale, 4. folk banjo-sounding instr leads a kooky melody, 8. eastern gavotte with bows and curtsies, 12. fat soul train bass & psychedelic theme

please disregard the divisions as they are completely worthless.
