Unfortunately we have to be the bearer of awful news this month. Anybody who listens to my show regularly will know that many moons ago my label released three wonderful albums by the the magical The Cambodian Space Project a truly singular band with a singer who embodied the great spirit of that country's new generation after the pol pot genocide of the 70's and 80's.
On the 20th of March, Kak Channthy was killed in a traffic in Phnom Penh returning home from a club, she was only 38 years old. There's not much more that I can say except that she'll always be remembered fondly as a bright, strong, fiercely independent woman who clawed her way up from a Cambodian rural existence and exploitation to become a true SE Asian superstar. Some have called her the Amy Whitehouse of Asia, we just believe that her jukebox memory for remembering songs she heard on the radio as a child brought a new lease of life on one of the most singular styles of pop music of the 20th century and inspired many in her country to take great pride in their modern as well as ancient cultural heritage. More than most of us could manage in 3 lives.
Also on the show this month music from Durban, beautiful pop sung in Cornish, yet another one from Brisbane's The Chats (Can't tell you how much I love that band), a new one from Parquet Courts that sees them return to form and a 15 minute modular synth, future classic. As always thanks for listening to Ring of Fire.
Finally if you like to know more about Kak Channthy the BBC penned a rather well written piece here http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-43482011 and a lot more detail in The Diplomat https://thediplomat.com/2018/03/remembering-cambodia-rock-star-kak-channthy/
