Music: Golgo 13

Music: Golgo 13

By Shelley Pallis. As Golgo 13 was Japan’s nihilistic answer to both Bond and the master-thieves of many a crime caper, many elements of the score (now re-released on vinyl) echo the kind of 1970s action movies that would surely have been on the mind of the film’s producers.

Books: Christian Sorcerers on Trial

By Jonathan Clements. It didn’t matter that some of the accused had already died in prison. When they were sentenced in 1829, the survivors were marched through the streets of Osaka, along with the salt-preserved corpses of their fellow believers. Then all, dead or alive, were crucified as devotees of the “pernicious creed” that worshipped […]
