Spirit Lash is the first 12' of the Spasm band and its leader/poet Anthony Joseph. A cult figure of the spoken word scene in the UK, Anthony has just released this month an acclaimed poetic novel 'the African origins of UFOs''. His music is a deep afro-carribean funky trance influenced by the rhythms of his nativeland Trinidad and the deep spirited jazz of the 70S. You will hear echoes of dub poets, Mystic Revelation of Rastafari, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Fela, Sun Ra cosmic visions, but the Spasm band has definitely a sound of its own . Tip!
