Last of the deviations, but the thing with colds is you can't sleep, so I have been restlessly pottering around the house, just.
Opened up this suitcase..urgghhh!
Filled with reel to reels.
I spoke yesterday of getting more audio files on viewmagazine.tv
Well I'll start to bring some in, that actually I had on a while ago and must have jettisoned the idea.
So teeing up now is one of the last UK interviews with a giant of world music, Fela Kuti.
He is mad bonkers, but we love him. Fela passed away a couple of years after this interview, but he remains a colossal and huge influence.
Here he talks about Afro-beat being a con, how he and his 26 wives took over a squat and how he would rub government officials in Nigeria the wrong way by buying a merc and desecrating it.
Mercs were the preferred government vehicles.
Couple of more of the audios include an interview with Quincy Jones
