Barry DeVorzon enlisted the help of Mandrill amongst others for the soundtrack to a gritty street gang movie from 1979. Expect a rocked-up, late 70s funk score with big analogue synth over the top of a mix of latin and rock grooves. The album features several poor vocal numbers but contains a good instrumental theme, driving and insistent. Many of the other tracks are sparse, guitar-led late 70s funk with strong bass. The main theme's melody is reprised throughout the score.
