Description

CD issue of this album by unknown Nigerian band - comes with insert and photos !While bands like Ofege and BLO have slowly becomes household names for collectors, there are still many Nigerian bands and albums that have remained unknown in most circles. Survival's lone effort 'Simmer Down' is one of those albums. Primarily an Afro Rock album, it contains psychedelic, soul, afrobeat, funky and progressive moments, all done in a raw nature with unpolished mixes and an underlying consistency that doesn't lose the listener. Songs are filled with fuzz guitar solos, flute solos & organ solos. Recorded by a group of talented High School students at the legendary ARC studio owned by ex-CREAM drummer Ginger Baker, this album seems to have remained under the radar until now. Filled with complete notes by the band with photos and history, including a story detailing a battle against Ofege at the infamous 'Space Funk' competition A true gem from Nigeria, and one you won't find an original for anytime soon.
