Side A: This shit has lengthy breakdowns that sound to me like early house music—if it was done on twangy guitars, muffly bass and break-your-bones live drums in East Africa.
Side B: By popular demand, “Face 2” of the Charles A. Chepkwony Magtalena cassette. The second side is labelled Oriango & Kipchamba. Anyone know who/what that is? Whatever it is, I like this Kenyan guitar band split.
One of the musical themes from Face 1 seems to get reprised in the third track of this side (Bane Matanda), making me wonder if both sides are not the same band?? Maybe just another ones of those random tape programming oddities??? Mysterious.
