pax nicholas & the nettey family - Na Teef Know De Road Of Teef

Brooklyn's Daptone label presents an astounding reissue of the unearthed opus of Pax Nicholas, a one time drummer with Fela Kuti during the most legendary years of his career. As the story goes, Pax Nicholas was a prodigiously talented drummer and singer (as you'll find out when listening to this) brought to the attention of Fela Kuti in 1971. Fela promptly drafted Pax into the Africa 70 lineup where he remained until 1978, when he left the group to live in Berlin (where he's been living ever since) due to civil unrest and persecution at home in Nigeria. During this time in the band he had his own thing going on the side, recording two now-legendary solo LPs for the Tabansi label. The lineup included members of Africa 70 and the Martin Brothers Band, playing a potent brand of Afrobeat so strong that when Fela heard 'Na Teef Know De Road Of Teef' in 1973, he reportedly told Pax "Don't you ever, EVER play it again!", hence the LP hiding away until Frank Gossner recently uncovered it in a Philadelphia record store and turned it over to Daptone for release. At only four tracks long it's criminally short, but obviously still a massive treat for any Afrobeat aficionados and ranks shoulder-to-shoulder with much of Fela's classic material from the same period. It's heavyweight material and deserves to be heard by any ears drawn to a prime Afro-groove.
