Title: Local Band Nitemare
Format: DVDR
Label: Blueberry Honey
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"A genuine fan club style look into the phenomenon that is WITCH. Though the bands gene pool gathers from a variety of places, there is a feeling from their most basic inspiration that reveal them to be much like any other small town band. And from there they present their message of ROCK. This short film (just over 20 minutes) captures these most honest and inside moments of a band just getting its feet on the ground, only to find the ground moving at unimaginable speed. Live footage, practice room insights, hotel rooms, vans⿦ packaged in a folded sleeve like all BLUEBERRY HONEY releases thus far. Also has bonus presentation of the first song from WITCHs first ever live performance!" - Blueberry Honey.

Title: In The Past
Format: LP
Label: Now-Again
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"2015 repress. In The Past, their second album, is the perfect follow-up for anyone exposed to the Witch band through their landmark Introduction." -Now-Again.

Artist: WITCH
Title: Introduction
Format: LP
Label: Now-Again
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
2016 repress. "Our comprehensive overview of Zambias premier garage-, psych-, prog-, funk-,Afro-rock ensemble Witch, We Intend To Cause Havoc!, is now sold out in its 6LP box set form. So we are making the first four Witch albums available in archival reissue form. As with our box set, the audio is nigh-perfect -- restored and remastered from the original master tapes. The entirety of Witchs first album, restored and remastered from master tapes, and presented as an archival reissue. Witchs musical arc is contained to a five year span and, in retrospect, is a logical one. The bands first two, self-produced albums - released in unison with the birth of the commercial Zambian recording industry -- are exuberant experiments in garage rock, and are as influenced by the Rolling Stones as they are James Brown. Thus Introduction, their first, is the perfect starting point for anyone interested in delving into the Witch band, or Zamrock in general." -Now-Again.

Title: Lazy Bones!!
Format: LP
Label: Now-Again
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Our comprehensive overview of Zambias premier garage, psych, prog, funk, afro-rock ensemble Witch... The bands third album, Lazy Bones!!, is the bands masterpiece -- a dark, brooding psychedelic opus that makes equal use of wah-wah and fuzz guitars, that relies as heavily on the stomping feel of hard rock as it does the syncopation of funk." - Now-Again.

Title: Lukombo Vibes
Format: LP
Label: Now-Again
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
2016 repress. "The bands fourth album -- recorded after the band toured with Osibisa -- makes use of traditional Zambian rhythms and folk melodies alongside progressive rock movements. It is the most afro-rock of Witchs oeuvre." - Now-Again.

Artist: WITCH
Title: We Intend To Cause Havoc!
Format: 6LP Box Set
Label: Now-Again
Country: USA
Price: $92.00

"The complete works of Zambias legendary garage-psych, prog-, funk-, Afro-rock ensemble. 1972-1977. Witchs five albums and a bonus album of 7" tracks never available on LP, restored and remastered from the original tapes. Presented as a 6LP box set: contains sixteen page booklet with never before seen photos and ephemera; extensive liner notes and annotation; an interview with bandleader Jagari Chanda. By the mid 1970s, the Southern African nation known as the Republic of Zambia had fallen on hard times: self-imposed, single party rule; a decline in prices for the countrys largest natural resource, copper; conflict in other countries on Zambias borders. This is the environment in which the Zamrock scene that flourished throughout that decade emerged... fuzz guitars were commonplace, driving rhythms as influenced by James Browns funk as Jimi Hendrixs rock predominated, musical themes were often bleak and bands largely sang in the countrys constitutional language, English. Although Witch is the best known Zamrock ensemble and although they succeeded in releasing five albums in Zamrocks golden years -- they never made an impact on the global scale in, say, the way afro-beat maestro Fela Kuti did. Travel to and within Zambia is expensive, and the markers for the Zamrock scene are now few. Only a small number of the original Zamrock godfathers survived the AIDS epidemic that decimated this country. Witchs musical arc is contained to a five year span: The bands first two, self-produced albums, released in unison with the birth of the commercial Zambian recording industry, are exuberant experiments in garage rock, and are as influenced by the Rolling Stones as they are James Brown; their third albun, Lazy Bones!! is the bands masterpiece, a dark, brooding psychedelic opus that makes equal use of wah-wah and fuzz guitars, that relies as heavily on the stomping feel of hard rock as it does the syncopation of funk; the bands last two albums, recorded after the band toured with Osibisa, make use of traditional Zambian rhythms and folk melodies and are the most afro-rockof Witchs oeuvre." - Now-Again.
