Ten songs featuring vocalists Dr. Israel and Hawkman, keyboardist / Funkadelic icon Bernie Worrell, legendary bassist/producer Bill Laswell, and post modern/futurist drummer, Guy Licata. Immediately accessible. Hard and heavy with obvious commercial/danceable appeal reflecting the current Jamaican movement and beyond.
A sonic, aesthetic mind and body experience.
A musical, sonic, aesthetic, mind and body experience, at once structured, spontaneous, precise, random, brash, beautiful and above all, unforgivable. In the present age, which prefers the sign to the signified, the copy to the original, representation to reality, the appearance to the essence, only truth is sacred, not illusion.
Change is the will to change.
