During its original lifespan in the early 1980s, Japanese imprint Johnny's Disk Record released some brilliantly weird and wonderful records, most of which now changed hands for eye-watering sums online. "Atsusa Mo Samusamo", the third album from obscure combo King Kong Paradise, is one such example. Here reissued for the first time since its original 1984 release, the set offers a surprisingly sun-kissed blend of Pat Metheny style jazz guitars, Wailers-style reggae riddims, wild electronics and lo-fi production that makes most of the tracks sound like they were recorded using microphones placed several hundred metres away from the band. It's an undeniably unique record and one that still sounds sublime 35 years after it was recorded.
