""The self-proclaimed founder of the private press scene, Benny Soebardja is one of the most important figures from the Indonesian music industry. Having been a member of bands such as The Peels, Shark Move and the infamous Giant Step, Benny left his mark across many memorable albums throughout the years, including his contributions to the recent Those Shocking, Shaking Days compilation on Now Again. Recorded in 1977, Gut Rock is Benny Soebardja's second solo effort, an album that was released through the independent studio SM Recordings. Having been allowed unlimited studio time and creative freedom, Benny took 30 days to record Gut Rock, backed by both Giant Step & Lizard. With English lyrics penned with the help of Bob Dook, this is an incredible piece of music and a staple within Indonesian collectors' circles. With multiple seven minute songs, Gut Rock not only contains beautiful song writing and harmonies, but also complex arrangements that will appeal to progressive collectors. An essential Indonesian rock album." LP limited to 500 copies world-wide.
