Steroid Maximus - Ectopia
Excellent 2002 instrumental album by Jim Thirlwell of Foetus fame. This is a very soundtracky affair - I can definitely see much of this backing a sleazy B-schlocker, although it's more like a collection of themes, however, as most of the tracks are too in-your-face to languish in the background. It calls to mind the genre mish-mash of Tipsy, and has lots of brash spy movie type motifs that seem to have leaked in, along with plenty of odd and disconcerting elements, composed in an often hectic mix. Good stuff.
