Zamrock Aplenty In 2013

Now-Again | Oct. 6, 2012 | News |

Followers of this label’s releases know Jason “Moss” Connoy as the collector and enthusiast whose investigations – and amazing record archive – lead to our Those Shocking Shaking Days anthology and who recently issued two essential companion pieces to that compilation: his AKA album and Benny Soebardja’s The Lizard Years.

He’s also the intrepid type who will just show up in Lusaka, Zambia, with nothing but Canadian dollars and an insurmountable desire to discover…. and come home rarities like the first press of WITCH’s Introduction, pictured below. This record is so rare that a photo of it wasn’t even included in our We Intend To Cause Havoc! anthology.

Moss also came back with a series of records which will figure into our forthcoming Ngozi Family anthology, our follow up to Rikki Ililonga and Musi-O-Tunya’s Dark Sunrise (Musi-O-Tunya’s second, excellent album Give Love To Your Children) and our overall anthology of the Zamrock scene: all three albums are slated for 2013 releases.

  2. Egon says:

    Tracklist is still TBD but will include many from the “Day of Judgement” album, and for sure the best tracks from both of Chrissy Zebby Tembo’s albums as well as tracks from “Bad Character,” “Thunder and Lightning,” “Heavy Connection,” “Gate Crash ’78,” “Viva Ngozi” and of course “The Ghetto” and “45,000 Volts.”

    The mention of a “Zam Rock” anthology gives me itchy fingers. Can’t wait. Hey people any plans of reissuing Keith Mlevhu’s ‘Love and Freedom’? It was a gas!

    When is the official releases?

    So stoked on more Zamrock Reissues! Here’s a question, what do you know about 5 Revelations? Are there any plans to reissue any of their records? This is the only thing I can find online, and it’s too good for there to not be a reissue!

    Was just talking to the fellas at Strawberry Rain about this yesterday. Short answer – yes, there are plans… preliminary, but plans…..
