CD: African Head Charge - Voodoo of the Godsent

A worthwhile addition to the band's spaced-out oeuvre

African Head Charge continue their life-long journey into enjoyably stoned psychedelic dub

For 30 years African Head Charge have been ploughing their unique sonic furrow, wandering hazy-dazed around the outer borders of experimental dub and super-mellow sounds. When they first appeared in 1981 on Adrian Sherwood's groundbreaking On-U Sound label there was no equivalent band to compare them to, except some of Brian Eno's global magpie studio excursions, notably My Life in the Bush of Ghosts with David Byrne which provided them with a sonic template.
