The Flowers - Artist Information
Cult GS Collection
Just for clarity, "Cult GS Collection - Nikkatsu Issue Remi Aso/The Flowers" does have some great Flowers cuts from film tracks, but also Remi Aso tracks used in film. The other GS songs are not covers by the Flowers, but rather other GS songs used in Nikkatsu films.
Personally, it is one of the best GS compilations I have ever come across.

The Flowers - Artist Information
Seedy soundtracks
Before they released the Challenge LP, along with other singers, they added music to several Nikkatsu soundtracks.
Some of these songs would later appear on other Flower related LPs. To hear Yuya and Remi Aso in glorious mono, check out the CD "Nikkatsu Cult GS Collection - Remi Aso & The Flowers". The CD contains a mixture of originals, in their own special style plus covers of well know GS tracks.

You will not be disapointed!

Too Much - Comments
Juni Rush
All recording cover sleeves of the Too Much records featured Juni Rush who was the lead singer and front man of the band. Mr. Rush had a natural Afro as he was half African American and half Japanese.
I hope this answers your question.
