Summary

Tummy Touch and Soundway Records are excited to present the debut album from Joni Haastrup's band MonoMono. Re-issued on CD, LP and digital, the LP comes with a bonus 12" featuring three extra tracks.

Soundway have been championing Joni Haastrup since day one featuring tracks on both the 'Nigeria Special!' and 'Nigeria Rock Special!' releases. Most recently Joni appears as a guest keys players on Black Goddess, an Afro-jazz soundtrack collaboration with Remi Kabaka.

Joni formed MonoMono in 1971 with his friend and bassist Baba Ken Okulolo, guitarist Jimmy Adams and percussionists Candido Obajimi and Friday Jumbo. The band recorded seven original tracks for their debut LP, a drastic departure from the soul covers of the 60's groups in Nigeria but a logical progression from the jazz-rock fusion saturating the London scene. Joni's keys on the lush, meandering title track 'Give the Beggar a Chance' reminds one of Ray Manzarek (The Doors) while on 'Kenimania' he wails like an African counter-point to the Skatalites' master organist Jackie Mittoo. Written in London and recorded in Lagos, the album was released in 1972.

The LP version comes with a bonus 12" vinyl
