africa



I posted about Amanaz's way sold-out 1975 LP Africa a while back, and it remains one of my favorite musical discoveries of the last few years, so it's worth noting that the record has been reissued by Now-Again, and is now available for purchase in the Stones Throw/Now Again web store. Fuzzed-out Zambian stoner-psych ("Zamrock") from the early '70s, with a dude that sounds like Dikembe Mutombo on lead vocals:

mp3:
Amanaz :: Khala My Friend

Now-Again is also reissuing WITCH's 1975 Lazy Bones!! LP, and the preview jam for that one is pretty amazing as well:

mp3:
WITCH :: strange dream

You can still get the vinyl of both from Forced Exposure although it's expensive. "Strange Dream" is an amazing song but really not representative of the rest of the record.

Khala My Friend is an all time favourite. There is a whacky vid for it on YouTube. Can't wait to hear the rest of the album
