1 - ABRANIS - CHENAR LE BLUES - (7") 
BONGO JOE


This fifth single in Bongo Joe's 45s series focuses on the legendary Algerian kabyle rock band Abranis, founded in 1967. The band pioneered the fusion of chaabi (traditional) music with '60s-'70s western rock, proudly singing in their own berber kabyle language while wearing hippy rockers outfits. Their shows were often cancelled by governors and the band once was arrested by the police, generating riots. The band kept on playing and recording until mid '90s. This 7" presents two major tracks from the band. Side A features 'Chenar Le Blues', released in 1977, a big hit on Algerian national radio. The band's response to The Doors. The B side, 'Avehri', released in 1983 shows the band's obsession to merge different music styles with the North African traditional airs.

2 - AL DOUM & THE FARYDS - SPIRIT REJOIN - (LP) 
BONGO JOE


The fourth album of the Milanese band. Compared to previous works, the substantial characteristics of the sound remain a powerful rhythmic basis and the prestigious skill in the poly-rhythmic dynamics; everything is however moved towards accents of more markedly jazzy ancestry. Basically the Faryds absorb and re-elaborate with remarkable insights disparate elements and influences of certain electric jazz or rock-jazz-blues of the '70s (Miles Davis, Dr.John, Graham Bond, Jeremy Steig) and spiritual jazz (Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders, Don Cherry, Brother Ah), marrying them with the forceful instances of certain Afro-free jazz (Pyramids, Alkebu-Lan) and the more freak-jam plots typical of space rock. The sense of complete unity is also rooted in the balanced synergy and chorality of the instruments, which enjoy a perfect osmotic reciprocity and complementarity. A very important role is played by the entry of Fender Rhodes that chromatically emphasizes the parts as counterpoints and hypnotic ostinatos chased by the dense timbral mixtures of alto-sax and flute and roaring wah-wah guitars with flowing acid trajectories.

6 - AUGENWASSER - DRONES & LOVE SONGS - (LP) 
BONGO JOE


Some names capture the imagination. You guess at their meaning, without ever grasping it entirely. They're elusive and enchanting, mysterious and inspiring at the same time. And yet we're keen to crack their code. Eventually these names reveal - like Mount Analogue - a world beyond anything we might have imagined. Augenwasser belongs to this category - the solid yet intangible project of Elias Raschle, young drummer of cult band Roy & The Devil's Motorcycle and guitarist and singer of Mystery Park, whose music, under the moniker Augenwasser, is reminiscent of the musical meanderings of Skip Spence, Syd Barrett, Red Krayola, Spacemen 3 and Beck's 'One Foot In The Grave'. Limited to 300 copies.

8 - CILLA, MAX - LA FLUTE DES MORNES VOLUME I - (LP) 
BONGO JOE


Born in 1944 on the island of Martinique, Max Cilla worked his whole life to resurrect the bamboo flute played by his forebears in the fields from the relative oblivion into which it had fallen into in the early 20th century. Fascinated by Cuban music and Latin rhythms, he composed and played his own songs accompanied by the island's traditional percussions. This album was originally recorded and released in 1981. Max Cilla also played with Archie Shepp in Paris, can be heard on Bonga's album 'Angola 74', shared the stage with Tito Puente and Machito, and keeps on playing today.

9 - CYRIL CYRIL - COLOSSE DE RHODES - (7") 
BONGO JOE


With a banjo, a guitar, strange drums and multiple voices and languages as their sole companions, Cyril Cyril cuts a groove from the soul and transcends, for a few tracks a time, the good manners of damned souls. The tandem, disguised as an ghost-like fanfare, rises like a phoenix on the dance floor.

12 - ENSEMBLE MINISYM - MOONDOG NEW SOUND - (LP) 
BONGO JOE


"I like to write chamber and choral music, especially for orchestra. But since it is not always easy to have orchestral works performed, the organ is the next best medium to give the composer vast tonal resources...", Moondog wrote in 1978 in the liner notes accompanying the 'Selected Works' album - the confidential American cousin of Moondog in Europe, the first album he recorded in Germany. With 'New Sound', the Minisym Ensemble goes the opposite direction, taking the pieces for organ(s) constituting the 'A New Sound Of An Old Instrument' album (1979) - as well as pieces composed in Europe during the same period - towards a new and singular instrumentation.

14 - EZUTE, GENERAL FRANCO-LEE -& HIS HARMONY INTERNATI - ONYE KATIA-OBIA - (LP) 
BONGO JOE


The 1970s and 80s saw the rise of the Ukwuani style in Nigerian highlife. A funky fusion of the laidback, mellifluous guitar lines characteristic of Igbo highlife with the rugged, animated rhythm section of Edo dance music, the sound was a sensation that made stars of musicians like Rogana Ottah, Steady Arobby, King Love A.U., Bob Fred and Chief John Okpor. One of the most consistent players in this field, though, was General Franco Lee Ezute, leader of the Harmony Kings International Band. Bongo Joe is proud to present this deluxe reissue of 'Onye Kata Obia', one of the Harmony Kings most underrated albums. Full of electrifying guitar work and intoxicating rhythms, it is sure to keep the crowd dancing!

15 - FERGUSON, WALTER GAVITT - KING OF CALYPSO LIMONENSE - (LP) 
BONGO JOE


'THE LEGENDARY TAPE RECORDINGS VOL. 1' - 99 year-old Walter Gavitt Ferguson from Costa Rica is a humble soul and a living legend, a Calypsonian of mythical proportions. Rooted like an old tree on the Caribbean shore, he has never left his home town to look for fame, instead fame did come to look for him. Throughout eight decades, rumours of his musical gifts have attracted people from near and far, contesting Calypsonians, fans, tourists, musicologists, musicians, pilgrims and the President of the Republic. They once even moved a recording studio to his house as he refused to go to the city. But many years before that, Ferguson used to sell his legendary self recorded cassettes to travelers and music lovers from all around the globe. He never kept a copy for himself and with age started to forget many old compositions. A recently started, international "tape hunt" was able to locate 9 such tapes in Canada and rescued 50 of his forgotten songs. Vol. 1 of this tropical treasure is now available, resurrected directly from original cassettes of the Calypso King.

18 - HYPERCULTE - HYPERCULTE - (LP) 
BONGO JOE


Hyperculte features Simone Aubert (Massicot) and Vincent Bertholet (Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp). The former whacks her drums with pinpoint precision while the latter tames his double bass, making it thrum in a continuous loop. Together, they hum repetitive and inspired litanies. The result is a hypnotic ball of fire that is contemplative and extraordinarily powerful. Hyperculte brings to mind the urgency and audacity of Liquid Liquid, the experimentations of Arthur Russell, the unabashed impetuosity of Neu! and Can, and the delirious pop music of Areski.

25 - LA DONNA INVISIBLE - GIALLO OSCURO, VOL. 1 - (LP) 
BONGO JOE


'LE STELLE CADENTE' - PART 1! On the surface, 'Giallo Oscuro' is a pop-oriented project dedicated to Italian love songs from the '60s. It's a homage to the music of those "maestri" who have forever changed both pop and cinematic music: Bruno Nicolai, Egisto Macchi, Alessandro Alessandroni, Gruppo Di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza and Ennio Morricone, just to name a few. The sounds that emerge from this golden age are a combination of splendor, grace, lascivity, eroticism, joy, sadness and psychedelia.

26 - LA TENE - L'ABANDONNEE - (LP) 
BONGO JOE


La Tene is back with a double invitation to their third full length LP. The hurdy-gurdy/harmonium/percussions trio welcomes two bagpipes (cabrettes and 23" to be exact), and a combo of string instruments (12-string guitar and electric bass). Beyond the instrumentation, we're looking at a gang of high esteemed guests: Jacques Puech, Louis Jacques, Guilhem Lacroux and Jeremie Sauvage, whose works are given their due credit (with the La Novia collective and its multiple variations, the France group, Super Parquet, the Standard-In-Fi label, etc.), are at ease with fuelling the traditional ball dance floor (literally in its wooden meaning) as well as questioning it, confortable with sparking dance moves as well as pushing instruments and their sound to their ultimate limits.

27 - LA TENE - LA TENE - (LP) 
BONGO JOE


La Tene is a three-headed beast emanating a single energy. If one detects the resonance of traditional music, saturated repetition, ethereal harmonics or an imagined dance, it is because they coexist in the music of La Tène as a unified framework liberated from its roots. The French-Swiss trio produces a music wherein each influence, however profound, is distilled into patterns-become-themes. There are no points of departure, no arrival lines, no standard verse structures - these fall away as soon as the body receives the first shocks. There are obstacles erected as monuments, familiar unknowns, bits and pieces heard elsewhere, multiple angles, and as many repeated gestures. The LP is released hand in hand with Three : Four Records.
