Beasts Of No Nation is perhaps Fela Anikulapo Kuti’s final masterpiece. The 1989 record finds Afrobeat’s founding father channelling the righteous fury of his younger years. Here we see Fela taking shots at everyone from Margaret Thatcher to Apartheid to the government of his native Nigeria. The Egypt 80’s endless grooves are a little subtler than the skronking fury of The Nigeria 70 but no less potent. Essential listening.
