Wake Up! new Nigerian rock comp on Now Again

Great music and images plus a captivating read for all Afro musos.

WAKEUP-VOL2-LP-coverThis double compilation from Now Again is a key addition to their catalogue. Despite numerous Nigeria compilations – the Soundway and Strut ones being some of the very best – these releases comprehensively document the historical context and situation in the country at the time, as well as the distinctive rock sound.

Wake Up You! The Rise and Fall of Nigerian Rock is out now and comes in the form of two very smart books and volumes on CD or a deluxe LP. There’s lots to read with them and there won’t be more from WTM about the contents at this very moment. More coverage coming up though. Watch this space.
