Atila - International Sandwich (1981)

This is essentially an art punk concept record. In which every song is an oddball take on some different musical genre. From NDW minimal synth, to disco punk, avant chamber music, post punk, hardcore, reggae and even a folk song. Then there are the ethnic musical experiments. Middle eastern, Indian, Spanish, Russian, Japanese, African, and cowboy. Mostly the results don't sound much like the culture in question.

There's a review of this in maximum rocknroll no.6 here on page 64.
Put out by Fish Ranch Records, from Santa Monica. Which I believe was started by Christian Lunch, and Christian Lunch is thanked on the insert for the use of his synths. Highly entertaining and varied sounds.
The hand drawn lyric sheet is included.
