Rough Guide. A few years back I was introduced to the golden age of s and earlys Cambodian pop and rock through the arrival in Hong Kong of two bands in a matter of months - Southern California's Dengue Fever and Phnom Penh-based, The Cambodian Space Project. Both acts entranced me with an exotic but strangely familiar take on beat and psychedelic music of the period. Hints of the Kinks, the Troggs and the Shangri-La's mixed with gutsy Cambodian female vocals had me hooked. I had to know more.
