Fela wrote the title track of this album in response to the 1976 Soweto Uprising in which thousands of South African students protested the forced teaching of Afrikaans, the colonial language of Apartheid. During the uprising and the ensuing riots, hundreds of students were killed. The song calls out killings that have gone on in the name of authority and totalitarian rule as well as the instruments of repression of colonial Africa the police and the army. The music parallels the somber tone of the lyrics; focused and direct, and avoids the usual bombastic funk of Fela compositions.

Vinyl LP pressing. Turkish psych/funk instrumental classic. Originally released in Turkey 1973, √Ėzkent's masterpiece (creation) of an all instrumental Turkish psychedelic funk album, filled with classic beats and breaks still inspires long-time fans and first time listeners. The funky rhythms, hypnotic percussions, and heavy break beats makes this a holy grail amongst DJ's and music fans alike. Only a handful of copies from the original pressing are known to still exist making this reissue a welcome addition to any record collection. The concept is very complicated, futuristic and free from categorization. Traditional folk songs mixed with rock, jazz, blues, funk and psych. √Ėzkent took traditional Turkish folk songs and reconstructed them for the new "hip" generation. It was recorded live in just one day with some of the best studio musicians in Turkey.
