There are those who say that bands like The Beatles or The Rolling Stones represent the pinnacle of rock n' roll. Those people have obviously never heard Dragon Sound.
The above clip o’ awesome comes from Miami Connection, a martial arts action film from the ‘80s that… well… I’ll just let the plot synopsis speak for itself.
The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sounds have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song “Against the Ninja,” Mark (kung-fu master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world’s smelliest underbelly. It’ll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sounds can’t stop until they’ve completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the “stupid cocaine”…and the entire MIAMI CONNECTION!!!
Oh movie… you had me at “motorcycle ninjas”. Miami Connection is getting a re-release later this year courtesy of Drafthouse Films, which recently scored a cult hit with The FP. I know what I’m asking for, come Christmas time.
