Those Bad Dudes, they sure do love Sagat. I'm not even convinced it's Platonic anymore. I think it was the eyepatch, personally... or maybe they're just into scars. At any rate, this Yan/Morse co-production has an excuse, since it was the jazzy, funky villain half of the Street Fighter pairing from Heroes vs. Villains. Posu writes:
"posu yan - drums, bass, guitar
Stacy Morse - flute
Joshua Morse - everything else
Coconut milk is goood... OM NOM NOM NOM... We went through about 10 different versions of this at first, including some crazy live impromptu jam session Sagats. We have enough demo material for another album of Sagat tracks... maybe one day..."
SO MANY SAGATS. What might otherwise seem like random over-fascination with a given source tune has actually been justified by their varied, interpretive, and - especially in this case - funky takes on the original. As it turns out, Sagat's theme lends itself rather well to such attention, and Heroes vs. Villains benefited from all that Thai Guy experience. Flute's a great addition, so kudos to who I am assuming is Joshua's sister (?) for the collaboration, and of course between po and jm, two like-minded artists with amazing arrangement and performance skills, you know the mix is gonna be hot. While remaining mellow, the up-tempo groove actually has a lot of pep & shuffle to it, real guitar and bass add real texture and dynamics, vibes & organ are slick & supple, and the interaction between the different instruments is really the icing on the cake. Fantastic, coherent, mellow, intricate, and easily as tasty as its namesake beverage, this was yet another reason why HvV kicked ass.
