various / lion productions - Groove Club Vol. 2: Cambodia Rock Spectacular!
Collecting 19 awesome pre-1975 Cambodian rock classics on gatefold double vinyl. In the years before Pol Pot's notoriously hardline and anti-Western Khmer Rouge regime altered the history of Cambodia forever, there was a flourishing, anarchic and vital rock scene centred in the capital Phnom Penh. Sadly some of the artists featured, notably Sinn Sisamouth "the Emperor of Khmer Music" and Ros Sereysothea "The Golden Voice of the Royal Capital" couldn't escape the brutal regime and were executed because of their involvement with the Khmer rock scene. 'Cambodia Rock Spectacular' captures the thrilling soulfulness of their music from a number of tapes and old vinyl which have survived at enormous risk to their owners, making this one of the most definitive collections of early Cambodian rock music you'll find. There's an unmistakable Cool attitude and groove to cuts such as Thra Kha band's 'Do You No Wrong Again' and the chugging, granite riffage of Pan Ron's 'Pro Chang Reiy' that can't be f**ked with, while the highlights have to be exotic, dance-gripping soul of Ros Sereysothea's 'Oun Chong Rom Leng Ning Bong (I Wanna Dance With You)' and Sinn Sisamouth's super sweet and tender, yet ten-tonne heavy downbeat 'Duang Netra' with killer (albeit muffled) break and trickling traditional melodies. Like the essential Sublime Frequencies editions which cover similar sounds, this album doesn't fail to amaze and delight and comes with our warmest recommendations to fans of deeply soulful and exotic music of any kind.
