John Lurie was one of the most important artists of the 1980s. He led the brilliant rotating Lounge Lizards lineup and had key roles in two legendary Jim Jarmusch movies, Down By Law and Stranger Than Paradise. It seems everything the dude was involved in during the 80s was dope, but it didn't stop once he formed his strong John Lurie National Orchestra at the end of the decade. The group released this one album during its lifetime and it doesn't disappoint. The group is made up of Lurie on horns and two other percussionists.
