In 1985, Macoto Tezuka (son of the great manga artist Osamu Tezuka) met musician and TV personality Haruo Chicada who had made a soundtrack to a movie which didn’t actually exist: THE LEGEND OF THE STARDUST BROTHERS. At the time Macoto was just 22 years old, a film-student with many short experimental films under his belt, but yet to make a feature-debut and of course had the pressure of the TEZUKA name.
With Chicada as producer, Tezuka then adapted this “fake soundtrack” into the real movie story of THE STARDUST BROTHERS. With inspiration from PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE and ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, Tezuka assembled a cast of some of Japan’s most famous musicians of the time, including such greats as Kiyohiko Ozaki, ISSAY, Sunplaza Nakano and Hiroshi Takano, alongside many famous names in Manga such as Monkey Punch (LUPIN THE 3RD), Shinji Nagashima (HANAICHI MONME), Yosuke Takahashi (MUGEN SHINSI) and even many upcoming film directors of the time such as Kiyoshi Kurosawa (TOKYO SONATA, this year’s YOCHO) and Daihachi Yoshida (THE KIRISHIMA THING).
