Product Description

The 12-minute title track, a mid-'70s Fela classic, finds the Afrobeat star at his most charismatically insolent, chanting down Nigeria's military with Pidgin English insults ("Zombie no go think unless you tell am to think") over funky chicken-scratch guitar, minimalist electric piano lines, call-and-response vocals, and complex percussive fury. As for the remainder of this shortish 1976 album: "Monkey Banana" is a slower but no less vehement castigation of white-collar zombies. In "Everything Scatter" Fela ponders why he's so unpopular with the powers that be. Could it be because he's an amugbo (hemp smoker) who has declared his compound an independent republic? --Richard Gehr
