Japanese import of Jim O'Rourke's soundtrack to the Wakamatsu movie based on Japanese student-radical extremism in the early seventies and the true story of the United Red Army faction. Pretty much the usual fare from O'Rourke with lots of guitar-based pieces but also some rock and a zest of free jazz. Excellent and highly recommended for any fan of the great man's music. one2zero

"Soundtrack of underground director Koji Wakamatsu's new docudrama about 1970s Japanese youth resistance, and the Japanese Red Army — directed and performed by Jim O'Rourke.
