Jam of the Day: N.M.H. The Outer Rim Remix by The Outer Rim (No More Heroes Sound Tracks: Dark Side)
If this song sounds familiar, you might have heard it before in one of three places. It originally appeared on No More Heroes: Dark Side, an arrange album for Suda51’s crazy brawler. Shortly after, it appeared on The Outer Rim’s self titled album, but with a bit of new dialogue over the top of the intro and outro. Finally, it can be heard while playing No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle (the version without the talking).
The Outer Rim is a jazz band, though this particular song is more on the rock side than their other works. Leading the arrangement and providing his saxophone skills is none other than Norihiko Hibino. Other members include Jeff Curry, Hakuei Kim, Nobuaki Fujii, and Shuji Narikawa. I’d highly recommend checking out their self titled album if you like jazz. Their N.M.H. remix is far from the best track on it, the others just don’t happen to be gaming related.
