Item ID: 376107

2016 repress. Sweet post-punk, with a heartfelt reggae/funk influence, analog dub effects and lovely femme-vox. A unique slice of late-'70s early-'80s goodness, starring Brenda Ray, whose previous release on EM Records, 'Walatta' [EM1071CD], has been embraced by a large number of listeners. Recorded in North West England, 'D'Ya Hear Me!' is warm-hearted, open, fresh and slyly experimental. With an independent spirit and a true D.I.Y. soul, these thirteen tracks, originally released in various formats by Ray a.k.a. Brenda Kenny a.k.a. Natalie Sand a.k.a. Polly Rith'm and her musical friends under the moniker(s) Naffi/Naffi Sandwich, were recorded in a simple home-made studio, making full use of the creative options opened up through the full use of simple means - although the warm, full audio belies any notions of primitivism. Far from media-crazed London, Naffi created a musical world free from lust for the spotlight, focusing solely on the music, and the results are fittingly pure.

Also available: D'YA HEAR ME!: NAFFI YEARS 1979-1983 (LP).
