What we have here is uncut, well crafted Afro-funk. Though
Heads Funk Band shared members with Akwassa, the two groups
co-existed simultaneously, with Felix Day (Feladey) on guitar
and Eddie Offeyi on drums. The original founding duo of Akwassa
was Felix Day (guitar, vocals) and Kevin Coburn (keyboards,
synths, vocals). They collaborated with guest musicians who
later turned out to be the Heads Funk Band. Some rumours claim
all of them were in both bands and musically speaking we can
hear a lot of similarities. Akwassa released two incredibly
rare albums, while Heads Funk Band managed to release three LP's, of which 'Hard World' is the most difficult to find.
