What we have here is a reissue of a truly exciting Afrobeat and
psych-funk album from Nigeria. This self-titled work by Rock
Town Express was originally released in 1977 by Awoko Records. There was a time in the 1970s when the best band in the Nigeria was actually from Cameroon. Rock Town Express, formed out of the ashes of Wrinkar Experience by Yaoundé boys Edjo'o Jacques Racine and Ginger Forcha, hit it hard, hit it loud and hit it funky. The horror of the Biafran War weighs heavily on Rock Town Express. The guitars wail, the horns parp and the synths swirls in a maelstrom of pain and anger.
