Ninja Tune turns 20

Ninja Tunes is one of my favorite labels and home to such mega-talents as Coldcut, The Herbalizer, Mr. Scruff, Kid Koala, Funki Porcini — the list goes on and on. Chakra Chip Cookies is tracking stuff from Ninja Tune almost on a daily basis. One of the vinyl junkie gurus at Ninja Tune found an obscure, but interesting track almost by accident. It’s by a band called “BFI” and was actually recorded in LA in the late late ’60s and early ’70s by the four Dragon brothers. The song appeared on a soundtrack to a long-forgotten surf flick and , after almost four decades, was rediscovered by Ninja Tunes. They even released the previously unreleased record. Check out the category-defying “Food for my Soul” from the Dragon brothers, recorded around 1970 in somebody’s basement. Download your own copy of the track, courtesy of IODA Promonet.
