AFRICAN HEAD CHARGE - CHURCHICAL CHANT OF THE IYABINGHI

- NEW RELEASE

TITLE:
Churchical Chant Of The Iyabinghi
LABEL:
CATNO:
ONULP141
STYLE:
Reggae /
FORMAT:
Vinyl record
DESCRIPTION:
Reggae LP - A unique album of outtakes from the classic Songs Of Praise and In Pursuit Of Shashamane Land albums, compiled by On-U archivist Patrick Dokter from the original tapes and expertly sequenced to work as an immersive listening experience. A companion piece to the acclaimed Return Of The Crocodile set from 2016 that took the listener on a version excursion through the early years of the group. These are the dubbier and more out-there experiments mixed down whilst Adrian Sherwood was shaping the sound of the albums. Bubbling percussion lines skitter across the stereo spectrum, ghostly voices echo inside the machine and mangled guitar riffs beam down from Mars, whilst staying rooted in the tough tribal rhythms that form the bedrock of the AHC sound, this is music for the head and feet, take heed! Mastered by King Kevin Metcalfe, comes with download card for full contents plus double-sided poster insert containing an extensive new interview with African Head Charge mainman Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah telling the story of his early life.

African Head Charge, is a British psychedelic dub reggae band, founded in 1980 by percussionist Bonjo I (Bonjo Iyanbinghi Noah). The group released most of its albums on Adrian Sherwood's label, On-U Sound, and the music has been named Sherwoods vision of a psychedelic Africa. Their debute studio album My Life in a Hole in the Ground was released 1981 and their latest, Voodoo of The Godsent 2011. The group has had a shifting line up, including Prisoner, Crocodile, Junior Moses, Sunny Akpan, Skip McDonald, and Jah Wobble, - - - Arguably the most popular act to emerge from Adrian Sherwood's highly respected On-U Sound Records, African Head Charge created a series of critically acclaimed albums dedicated to further experiments in their label boss, mentor, and producer’s patented style of psychedelic dub. African Head Charge was founded in 1980 by percussionist Bonjo I (full name: Bonjo Iyanbinghi Noah), who surrounded himself with an ever-shifting cast of supporting characters (including colorfully named henchmen like Prisoner, Crocodile, Junior Moses and Sunny Akpan), and captained their debut, My Life in a Hole in the Ground to almost immediate international acclaim. Three more albums: ‘82’s Environmental Studies, ‘83’s Drastic Season, and ‘86’s Off the Beaten Track – followed in due course, and quickly grew African Head Charge’s fan base, regardless of their staunch refusal to perform live throughout this time period. Then again, it could be argued that the band’s intensely studio-created, hyper-mixed, and often abstract ‘psychey dub’ compositions weren’t at all ideal for on-stage reproduction. In any case, African Head Charge eventually did concede to go out on tour; then enjoyed an extended break before reconvening to work on a 1991 comeback album entitled Songs of Praise. Since then, the group has continued to add to their already rich legacy with new albums (In Pursuit of Shashamane Land arrived in ‘93, Akwaaba two years later), remix sets, singles, and compilations, but not...
