Recorded in 1977, ‘Gut Rock’ is Benny Soebardja’s second solo effort, an album that was released through the independent studio SM Recordings. Having been allowed unlimited studio time and creative freedom, Benny took 30 days to record Gut Rock, backed by both Giant Step & Lizard.
Recorded in 1978, Night Train would be the last solo project Benny recorded with SM Recordings, and is potentially the rarest Benny Soebardja offerings.
