drive to heaven, welcome to chaos: a very funny international compilation released in tokyo almost thirty years ago; featuring henry kaiser, fred frith, der plan, pyrolator, andreas dorau, john zorn and many others

exactly what it says in the headline: sixteen very different artists, mostly from japan, germany, england and the us of a, with a rather incoherent choice of tracks pullulating in the leftfields of weird pop, experimental noise, fake disco and yonderways beyond. 
drive to heaven will help you waste your precious time on a lazy sunday afternoon in a very sophisticated way: you're allowed to dance, in case you don't know, and welcome to caos (sic!), laydeedees and djintallmints!
 

here we go-go!

Listening I'm reminded of the film The Happiness of the Katakuris. Love the art and the serious liner notes which explain that it's not a random compilation, but a thematic one. All I know it there aren't nearly enough compilations like this one, thanks for bringing it to light.
