More spy music - this time moving towards the cinematic style of surf with lots of hard beats and organs. Kind of like a soundtrack to a funky imaginary movie, with more varied styles than Spies Who Surf. From the producer of The Spies Who Surf, The Insiders, Material Issue, and Ministry, Retro-Sonic Music for the Moderns was recorded at Jay O’Rourke's home ADT project studio, on a houseboat in Starved Rock, at Acme studios with Mike Zalenko (Material Issue) sitting in on drums, and "live" at the Boulevard Cafe in Chicago. Good stuff.
