The Ngozi Family drummer’s fuzz-wrenched Zamrock classic. Released in conjunction with Shadoks. Limited LP Out NOW.
Late last year, we announced the first officially brokered reissue of Zamrock guitarist Paul Ngozi’s music when we posted the song “Jesus Christ” from The Ghetto album, which we released in conjunction with Germany’s Shadoks Music. Now, we’re happy to announce the first legit reissue of Ngozi Family drummer Chrissy Zebby Tembo’s My Ancestors, available now in limited edition LP form.
The late Zebby Tembo, as he was often referred to by his bandleader, recorded at least two albums under his own name, as well as a collaborative album with Ngozi and a handful of 45s. All are special, and feature the drummer’s straight-ahead thrust and throaty vocals amidst Ngozi’s constant fuzz guitar. Songs like “Fisherman,” posted for download below, make My Ancestors an essential buy for anyone interested in the depth of the Zamrock scene.
Zebby Tembo’s music will feature prominently in our Ngozi Family anthology, slated for release in 2013.
