LIVE IN DETROIT 1986 (2XCD)

Label

Strut team up with New Yorks Knitting Factory for the exclusive worldwide release of >Live In Detroit, 1986<, the first new Fela Kuti material to be issued since his final studio album, Underground System, in 1992. Recorded live at the Fox Theater in Detroit in November 1986, the concert marked a triumphant return to the USA for Nigerias Afrobeat master, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. He had tried to leave his home country to tour the States two years earlier before being arrested and imprisoned on dubious charges of >currency trafficking<. An Amnesty International campaign helped secure his release in April 1986 and, just two months later, he appeared on stage as part of Amnestys Conspiracy Of Hope American tour

Tracklist:

Just like that
Confusion Break Bones
Teacher dont teach me nonsense
Beasts of no nation

The evening’s audio recorder, Bob Teagan, claimed the ‘86 Fox Theater show to be Fela’s best performance, “It was like seeing Bob Marley, Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, and James Brown all rolled into one. Fela captured the revolution of Marley, the love of Marvin Gaye, he sung with a rare and exquisite charcoal voice like Sinatra but he would scream himself out and go hoarse by the end of the three hour marathon show. All the while he danced like Michael Jackson or a ballerina, and captivated the crowd with the showmanship of James Brown.” The Detroit concert was part of Fela’s debut US tour with his Egypt 80 band and the recording finds them on strident form, showcasing all-new material in free-flowing extended workouts: ‘Just Like That’ recalls Fela’s memories of the Nigerian Civil War; ‘Confusion Break Bones’ (an update of his earlier track, ‘Confusion’), compares the present African situation to a permanent traffic jam at a town centre crossroads; ‘Teacher Don’t Teach Me Nonsense’ swipes at the oyinbos (white men) forcing sham versions of democracy on Africa and allowing “democratic” rulers to line their own pockets at the expense of the people
