"Chief Inspector" by Wally Badarou

Ah yes Wally Badarou. This man knows how to work a synth brotha! Wally was the keyboard wizard on Close to the Bone by The Tom Tom Club and if you've heard that album you know how amazing those synths sound. He released a great solo album called Echos in 1983 that has some fantastic synthesized African sounds and then some really drab " this could be in a bad Robin Williams movie from the 80's" tunes. This cut i think is the best. Its groovy, funky and those keyboards just gel. The video is everything I want in a music video circa 1980's MTV, all kinds of mediums mixed into the fold to make something truly unique and fun.
