Fela Kuti is known for having a huge catalogue, but over the years many of his albums have been nigh-on forgotten. The title track of Zombie is an acknowledged Fela classic, but the album as a whole hasn’t been available as a stand-alone vinyl since the original release. Mmmm, tasty political afrobeat.... LP on Knitting Factory.

9/10 Jack Customer review, 16th December 2016Miles Davis once said that Fela's music was the music of the future, and in some ways I think he was right. Afrobeat is on the rise again, with bands like Antibalas, Karl Hector & The Malcouns, Nomo, Vampire Weekend, The Budos Band, Ebo Taylor and Fela's own son Seun Kuti, doing their spin on afrobeat or being under the influence. Fela will always be the Undisputed King Of Heavy Heavy Afrobeat, and even though he is loved and recognised amongst funkateers and musicians alike, the man is still criminally underrated.
