The first electronic keyboards, organs and drum machines offered him new possibilities of totally controlling his compositions.

CANNIBALE - NO MERCY FOR LOVE

French band Cannibale releases an exciting album that sounds like a surprising -and very psychedelic- mixture of cumbia, African rhythms and garage music. Or, if you will, a kind of missing link between Fela Kuti, The Doors and The Seeds!
