Megatron Man

San Francisco based musician and record producer Patrick Cowley, grew up in upstate New York where he worked in local rock bands. After moving to the Bay Area he began an intense study of the synthesizer at San fransisco City College. Cowley remained close to the San Francisco club scene and eventually joined forces with producer Marty Blecman to form the legendary Megatone Records in the summer of 1981. In that year, Cowly put out the classic italo disco record Megatron Man.

Megatron Man is one of my favorite italo LP's of all time. One of the hidden gems off this album is space disco influenced "Sea Hunt". This song was well ahead of it's time and helped bring the disco scene to the west coast.
