Kingsley Bucknor started out playing with Fela Kuti in his native Nigeria, before recording this self-released electrofunk album in London in 1985. It’s quite a bit different from African Woman, his recently reissued, Lagos-recorded 1979 LP, but there’s still a discernible Afrobeat flavour atop the Zapp-influenced, vocoder-drenched grooves. A particular highlight is Don't Give Up Ya Luv, which highlights his sloppy DIY eccentricities while being funky and smooth where it counts.
