Petrified Forest 1973
MPM helped score the Masahiro Shinoda movie "Forest of Fossils" better known as 'Petrified Forest' released in 1973. This bizarre love and murder Japan style movie is interesting but not essential. It is available on DVD in the Shinoda Toho Collection with good English subtitles - Region 2, NTSC. (note: You wouldn't recognise the score as MPM)

3/3 - Artist Information
Post 3/3
After 3/3 split up Reck and Chiko Hige went to New York, where they played briefly with the Teenage Jesus & the Jerks and the Contortions. After their return to Japan in early 1978, they formed punk/no-wave legends Friction.

Hiroshi Hige also had sterling punk credentials, forming the group Mirrors and Japan's first punk independent label Gozira Records.
