“Can’t You Hear Me?” is the result of Christophe Lemaire rooting through the record collection of Eothen Alapatt, with a particular focus on Zimbabwe, Zambia and Nigeria during the 1970’s. Lots of super-rare and super-good material here, a lot of it falling into the category of flaringly-rebellious funky-rock. Double LP compilation on Now-Again.
9/10 Ant Staff review, 22 September 2016
You'd have to actually be some kind of nugget to glance at the title of this record and not know what you're getting - so my work here has been done for me. In a sense so has yours because if like me you're a relative noob when it comes to this stuff, there's no need to go crate digging - thanks to Christophe Lemaire for raiding Eothen Alapatt's collection and expertly curating this fabulous collection of gems.
This is the only record I've been cranking up to eleven in recent months where my wife hasn't questioned my sanity. She even went as far as saying she enjoyed it! The Ice Queen hath been melted.
And what human couldn't resist these funky, psychedelic garage rock grooves. Loads of dudes trying to be like Jimi Hendrix and that. It's joyous, infectious celebratory music (with the odd protest song).
If you've ever wondered what WITCH, Born Free, Peace, Chrissy Zebby Tembo, Paul Ngozi, Revolutions etc. sound like then here they are, all on one bloody great 2LP. Pure class.
