Tony Allen is a legend, famous for pioneering the Afrobeat sound as the engine room of Fela Kuti's band for over a decade and hailed by Brian Eno as the greatest drummer who's ever lived. Jimi Tenor is a guy who released 'Total Devastation', a 12" Warp sent me for free with an order years ago which I couldn't even sell for 1p on eBay. A strange match to be sure. Business Lady immediately picked up on a weird New Power Generation vibe which I can now totally hear, Allen bringing the funk while Tenor slurps away at his vocals like some sort of oddball Finnish Sly Stone who's come to lick your ears out. Musically he contributes a load of jazzy elevator kitsch on a variety of instruments, as is his wont, but it does all work pretty well I've got to say 'Inspiration Information' is probably the most vibrant and purely 'fun' record we've had on so far this week which has got to be a bit of a recommendation has it not?
