Description

Their third album from 1983. Described by producer Adrian Sherwood as: “Experiments in active frequencies, out of time noises, rhythms within rhythms, and endless tape edits (edits on edits) resulting in the ultimate cut-up and paste job…” whilst an On-U press release of the time declared: “A high-tech rhythm mix of human, animal and machine sounds, captured on the Southern Studios digital rig by the “wackid’ mixer ADRIAN SHERWOOD, up in sunny Wood Green, DRASTIC SEASON features that On-U rugged bass sound. Check it if you’re a dancer, a listener, a film maker, a computer programmer, a human or an animal. Special treats in store for steam locomotive enthusiasts and biologists. You’ve never heard such sounds in your life (to quote ESP).”

African Head Charge could truthfully make the assertion at this stage in their career that the music they were making was a genre unto itself, defying categorisation. Loose echoes of traditional African percussion music, field recordings and roots reggae inform the mix, whilst some parts conjure up the stripped-back post-rock of Can or Tortoise. Re-cut at dubplates & mastering in Berlin for maximum bass pressure. Includes printed inner with sleevenotes by Steve Barker (On The Wire), and download card for full album.
