* Limited-edition of 400 LPs * Will appeal to fans of left of center weird world music and reissue compilations, and world-psychedelic music Description: Drunken Foreigner Band's debut album "White Guy Disease" is a sprawling electrified iteration of the Akha and Lam Lao musics of Thailand and Laos.

The majority of the band's music was learned from cassette tapes of the largely-vocal music traditions, gathered by keyboardist Dave Kadden on his trips to Southeast Asia.

The band lives up to its name, both in its unrestrained energy and acknowledgement of the cultural remove between the U.S.-born members and the Southeast Asian source material.

Neither educational nor exploitative, the reverence and enthusiasm go hand in hand.
