Boomkat Product Review:
"Zambia based Witch is the best known Zamrock ensemble - and although they succeeded in releasing five albums during Zamrock's golden years - they never made a global impact in, say, the way afro-beat maestro Fela Kuti did. Travel to and within Zambia is expensive, and the markers for the Zamrock scene are now few. Only a small number of the original Zamrock godfathers survived the AIDS epidemic that decimated the country. Witch's musical arc is contained in a five-year span. The band's first two self-produced albums were released in unison with the birth of the commercial Zambian recording industry. They are exuberant experiments in garage rock, as influenced by the Rolling Stones as by James Brown. Their third album, Lazy Bones!!, is the band's masterpiece: a dark, brooding psychedelic opus that makes equal use of wah-wah and fuzz guitars and relies as heavily on the stomping feel of hard rock as it does the syncopation of funk. Witch's last two albums were recorded after they toured with Osibisa and make use of traditional Zambian rhythms and folk melodies - these are the most "afro-rock" of Witch's oeuvre."
