The Karminsky Experience Inc. The Power of Suggestion
- Words: Liz Cordingley
- Label: ESL Music
Tipping fezzes to Henry Mancini, The Karminsky Experience Inc. writes the soundtrack to a sexy, escapist, psychedelic-fueled jaunt into sitar funk territory. Not surprisingly, this London duo has DJed for Hugh Hefner, Russ Meyer, Ken Kesey and Burt Bacharach. Imagine a composite of those dashing dudes and you have the Karminsky leading man. Dodging an all-out kitsch-fest, ...Suggestion is a concerted effort to score the imaginary protagonist's Istanbul adventures through bouts of "Belly Disco," a run-in with "The Hip Sheik," and mysteries "Behind the Bamboo Curtain." It succeeds with all the Eames-furnished spy lounge appeal we've come to expect from ESL. "
