Guitarist Hotei Tomoyasu, now celebrating his 30 years of music, has a greatest hits album coming this week under the form of collaborations featuring various guest artists, hence the title "Super Guest" (vs "Best"). The songs are from his solo career but also his old band BOØWY.
A few collaborations stand out, the most exciting being a Cornelius remix of "Battle Without Honor Or Humanity", that song used in Kill Bill (hear original on YouTube, you've heard it before)! There are also appearances by FPM, Soil & "Pimp" Sessions", Rip Slyme, Imai Miki, and UK new wave band Sigue Sigue Sputnik (covering "C'mon Everybody", already a cover of Eddie Cochran).
All tracks can be sampled on this official release page.
A limited edition contains a bonus DVD with various live tracks from Hotei's whole career.
