The Hungry Ghosts (Jason Brock, U.S.A.) 3:27
Before travelling to Mexico to meet with the charismatic head of the Suerte y Muerte cult, Gat needs someone to set up the meeting. Enter the Hungry Ghosts, a Japanese criminal outfit that has relocated to Los Angeles. Gat’s done work for them in the past in relation to some of their non-criminal activities.
This track is what’s playing in the Ghosts’ house when Gat visits.
I have a weak spot for funk a mile wide. Bootsy Collins, Sly Stone, Tower of Power–awesome! Unfortunately none of them were available for the soundtrack. Fortunately, Jason Brock was, via this track which I absolutely love.

His debut solo album was Plant the Seed.
I also used an excerpt from The Hungry Ghosts as the soundtrack to one of the two video trailers for Luck + Death, which you can watch below (you can watch the other one over on track ).
