Album Review

If Lalo Schifrin is your idea of rock & roll, and if your idea of fun is sitting around watching cheesy movies from the '60s and cheerfully doing the swim while bell-bottomed boys with bowl haircuts play cheerfully wanky psychedelic music, and if you just can't get enough of that faux sitar sound, then the French producer and multi-instrumentalist Chris Joss is your man.
