Favoriting February 6, 2024: HASHIM KOTARO BHAROOCHA on Meiko Kaji
Music journalist/DJ Hashim Kotaro Bharoocha discusses the career of 70's Japanese exploitation actress/vocalist Meiko Kaji (Stray Cat Rock, Female Prisoner Scorpion), the subject of a Wewantsounds solo album reissue series. The latest release, Kaji's 1972 debut Gincho Wataridori, for which Bharoocha penned the liner notes, features the theme from the Toei gangster film Wandering Ginza Butterfly. Kaji became a cult icon when Quentin Tarantino based Kill Bill on Kaji's 1973 revenge film Lady Snowblood.

good evening, Devon! Islanders!

Lady Snowblood ❤️🗡️🤍🗡️🖤

(say what you will about Tarantino, but without Kill Bill, i never would have learned about Meiko Kaji and Lady Snowblood)

(now off to bandcamp, to add to the wishlist . . . and practice Sword Form 🗡️🗡️)

The amount of rape in the FPS series in particular definitely not something you'd see these days...

You see something like that in the Disney and Nickolodeon TV channel world, where they want the main star kids to be multimedia threats.

I'd think Elvis & the Fabs were completely Musicians who happened to do films. Well - maybe Elvis & Ringo ! I think Elvis had more potential as Actor than the material finally served. Being essentially married to manager Col. Parker...

Same thing going in a different direction is all, still serving the idea of having multiple threat film personalities. Distinction without a difference.

Elvis did show some promise in King Creole though, I agree.

Lady Snowblood in japanese is called Shurayuki Hime, and the name of Disney's Snow White and the 7 dwarfs in japanese is Shirayuki Hime only 1 letter difference.

I suppose your Judy Garlands & such in that System then. Later in Vegas - what Punks might deride as 'all-rounders' in ShowBiz...

Apparently it has never been played on this show, but Fairuza Balk (who has gone on to dabble in music in a very different style) sang an incredible cover of I Want You To Be My Baby in the movie Humboldt County

i met a guy in kyoto who has a katana store that sells real katana, which he also considers art. He said Kill Bill was his favorite movie.

I tend to be impressed with the professionalism of Actors who develop Musical chops for a role. Since I tend to conceive of Music as the whole concern !
