FINDERS KEEPERS


Its possibly a misnomer to label music recorded outside of the USA or Europe with terms such as psyche or surf as it is often just a stylistic innovation based on exposure to foreign records via the radio or music stores. It doesnt necessarily chime in with any of the social shifts or changes that accompanied the musics development in the West. Even in America, the concept of teen culture was relatively new during the height of these genres popularity. People who could afford to take advantage of these new freedoms often had the financial cushioning to do so. This factor was amplified in South East Asia, and the music shouldnt be considered nationally representative - its a more scaled down phenomenon, relevant to a small cross-section of society. By the same token, this wasnt just bland copycat music to widen a bands audience, or to entertain expat patrons in bars or clubs. This was a sincere desire to experiment and repackage local sounds without necessarily needing to make a statement. The musical information was processed and partially recast amidst a blend of local music and arrangements, transposed onto drums, electric bass, guitar and keyboards. Although in the mid-70s there was a wider protest movement in Thailand that found its musical outlet in the songs for life of Caravan and Carabao, the music collected here was not part of the same aesthetic, although its possible there was some musical overspill. The styles featured on this compilation fall somewhere between Luk Thung (song of the countryside) and Luk Krung (song of the city). 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 sophisticated audience in mind. The tracks here were experimentations or dice rolling by both little known groups, as well as established figures like Plearn Promdan. Some tracks might represent a specific artists only foray into this musical area.Even within Thailand the majority of these tunes remain unissued, so its with great pleasure that we 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.

62 - VARIOUS - WELL HUNG - (CD) 
FINDERS KEEPERS


Subtitled: '20 Funk-Rock eruptions from beneath communist Hungary - Volume One.' Finders Keepers break yet more ground with this; 20 stomping selections from the vaults of Eastern Europe's best kept secret, Hungaraton / Qualiton Records. This first ever compendium piles heavy psych, jazz, glam and funk onto a heaped spoonful dripping with the cream of the 60s/70s Hungarian rock scene - Omega, Metro, Locomotiv GT, Skorpio as well as Finders Keepers' very own jet-set fit-bit Sarolta Zalatnay.The unique ways in which Hungarian rockers interpreted such sporadic and disparate influences and unknowingly mirrored embryonic developments in Western rock from behind a political blindfold is truly unique. The national pride of Hungary's pre-war musical heritage ensured that the state-owned label Supraphon's in-house studio was designed to immaculate classical standards with acoustic specifications that would put its surrounding Eastern European labels to shame. The quality of phonograph records, from a part of the world that was usually notorious for low quality pressings and repeatedly recycled vinyl, would surpass the European standards ensuring that the hand crafted sound of Hungary's futuristic pop music was light years ahead of its time and would stand the test of time for many (delayed) years to come.
