Review: While he lived a musical life that spanned from boogie to gospel before he passed away in 2016, Nairobi's David Waciuma didn't get to record much. He was known much more for his live performances with bands such as The Monks Experience then, later, Rapture Voices who he recorded these two records in the mid-70s. "Devil Go" is a thumping rhythm and blues call and response piece while "Jesu Kristo" hits with more of a frazzled bluesy funk. Both make you wish he recorded much more.
Review: Introducing Warm Drag, the debut album featuring !!! (chk chk chk) associate Paul Quattrone and former K-Holes vocalist Vashti Windish. It presents the fifth album Los Angeles label In The Red have released this year which, to stretch a writer's imagination, can be filed under: spacey western distorted punk pop. The album dusts itself up in a tattered post-punk style with the motoring "Cruisin' The Night" while also moving into more trip hoppy numbers like "End Times". In a way it's like colliding Suicide with Massive Attack and more of the turned Chemical Brothers genius. To dance, grumble or swing, Warm Drag hits the spot.
