Item ID: 435967

Formed after the Biafran War to raise spirits in the east, this
Nigerian band quickly conquered the dance floors of Lagos and
then, in 1973, headed for London to tear up the local scene.
'Now Im A Man' captures the band at the height of its
London-era pomp. Africans were making soca, West Indians were
playing afro-funk and discolypso blasted from boom boxes across
West London. The Funkees soaked it all up and delivered back,
funkier, tighter and louder. Bookended by two Santana-esque
jams, 'I'm A Man' and '303', The Funkees' second album delivers
slow burning Afrobeat ('Mimbo'), urgent jungle bongo chants ('Salam') and straight-ahead floor-fillers ('Dance With Me').
Legendary BBC DJ John Peel recorded not one, but two sessions
with The Funkees.
