Artist: NGOZI FAMILY
Title: 45,000 Volts
Format: LP
Label: Nosmoke
Country: Portugal
Price: $31.00
"Stunning, rare as hell album from the rich Zambian Zamrock scene from the 70s -- have you ever heard of this record before? The Ngozi Family (Ngozi means danger, and dangerous is their music indeed!) were also the band backing for Chrissy Tembo on his now well-known My Ancestors album. They released this one in 1977, and youll be amazed when you hear it if youre somehow into Hendrix, Black Sabbath, heavy psychedelia or Afro psych-rock. Most of the tracks on the LP follow that direction, and the rest enter the Afrobeat sound -- but most of it is fuzzy, heavy psych-rock as you can expect. This release has a surprising high quality sound and is limited to 600 copies only. One of the rarest rock albums of the whole world!!! Get it while you can!!!" -Nosmoke.

Title: Day of Judgement
Format: LP
Label: Now-Again
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Proto-punk and garage Zamrock: the celebrated guitarist Paul Ngozis essential debut album. Featuring Chrissy Zebby Tembo. Guitarist/vocalist Paul Ngozis debut album ? under the name Ngozi Family - is an important record: not just in the Zamrock genre, but in the global rock canon. Day of Judgement is an introduction to the most intense, raw and inimitable golden era Zamrock recorded, as it paved the way for a dozen Paul Ngozi and Ngozi Family releases (the most famous being drummer Chrissy Zebby Tembos My Ancestors) that straddled the line between funk and punk, of driving hard rock and Zambian folk melodies and rhythms. Day of Judgement was released in 1976, the same year as other, now famous, Zamrock albums, from WITCHs Lazy Bones!! to Rikki Ililongas Zambia. But it sounds like none of its counterparts. Part of that stems from its frenzied primitivism, the Ngozi Familys attempt to overcome a lack of musical acumen with sheer force of will. That will allowed Paul Ngozi to overcome a humble upbringing to become the most unlikely combination: Zamrocks most beloved star in its brief but now-well chronicled arc; the only musician to maintain his fame and recording prowess in the dark ages of the 80s; an inspiration to not only aging but young Zambians -- and now others, beyond Zambias borders. But one cannot imagine Paul Ngozi without this album, a full-on aural assault that sounds as wild nearly forty years after its release as it must have sounded in the developing Zamrock landscape from which it emerged. We listen to this anachronistic yet prescient album now as a wholly original, completely unpredictable album in line with those from mavericks from across the world - from the Ramones to the Sex Pistols to Death. And, though its been over two decades since Paul Ngozis passing, his voice and vision still seem exciting, powerful, unique, unvarnished, new."- Now-Again
