In the 80's, based on the Chikada Haruo album of the same name, director Tezka Macoto (son of Tezuka Osamu) created cult musical movie "The Legend of the Stardust Brothers" (1985, Japanese title "hoshikuzu kyōdai no densetsu") featuring Takagi Kan, Kubota Shingo, Issay, Togawa Kyōko and Ozaki Kiyohiko. However only a selection of the soundtrack was released on vinyl at the time. Finally, here comes the entire soundtrack on CD including previously unreleased songs!
In addition, all songs from the sequel movie made 30 years later, "The Brand New Legend of the Stardust Brothers" (to open in theaters starting on January 20), are also included. This one features some of the original cast plus lead actors Miura Ryōsuke and Takeda Kōhei, as well as appearances by the likes of Nomiya Maki (ex-Pizzicato Five), Inoue Jun (ex-The Spiders) and Natsuki Mari. Music was composed by Chikada Haruo, Akagi Chuji (Films), Takagi Kan, Kubota Shingo (Sunny Kubota & Old Lucky Boys), Kubota Haruo and Saeki Kenzō (both of Pearl Brothers).
Songs "hoshikuzu kyōdai no densetsu (2016)", "hoshikuzu kyōdai, tsuki e yuku" (sung by Nomiya Maki) and "Dreams Never End" were released in advance on iTunes Japan, etc.
The new movie will start showing at Theatre Shinjuku from January 20. Other theaters throughout Japan will follow. Also the 1985 movie will be shown at Theatre Shinjuku from January 13 to 19. Find all details on the official site.
A special live show will be held on January 22 at Shibuya WWW featuring several of the cast and staff. Details here.
