Rory McFarlane - Space Prison
For the UK home video release of Yoshiaki Kawajiri's Cyber City Oedo 808, Manga Entertainment had session musician Rory McFarlane compose a searing cock-rock soundtrack to better compliment their localised potty-mouth speechscape. Here's the adrenalised, fist-pump opener. We're watching violent mid-90s anime! Pitching square at the 18 crowd, the new distributor mutated Cyber City from a melancholic futureshock procedural to a brute-minded curio. Unfortunately, thug vintage Cyber City is lost to digital formats thanks to a rights lapse. Do the right thing Manga Entertainment! Spend some some cyber-coin and get it back out there. We'll have Goku: Midnight Eye too while you're at it.
