As the promo for the best of starts to crank up, Jimi has given Metro an insight into what’s playing on his ipod at the moment.
Of Man by Amanaz
I heard this on Steve ‘Sex Pistol’ Jones’s short-lived but ace BBC 6Music show late last year. It’s Zambian psych rock from Amanaz’s 1975 Africa album. It sounds like a black Black Sabbath.
Irene by Caetano Veloso
I love songs that break down and sort of start again. And what a riff. It sounds like they had a ball recording this. You can actually hear the joy.
Ancestors by Gonjasufi
This is super-weird hip hop from Warp Records. I love the blasted vocal on it and the ridiculous beat. Check out the album, A Sufi And A Killer.
