Last night after checking out, I went over to Soul Safari, the host of one of the songs by the Boyoyo Boys. I'd never been there, but let me tell you, when it comes to African music, holy shit, do they have it covered. An instant add to the blogroll (in the column on the left, under "Get Lost"). That never happens. It's that good. It's African music of all types and regions including African garage and psych. Here's three by Fela that I hadn't heard and another totally unrelated song by the Flames, a band that included Ricky Fataar, who was in the Beach Boys for a short time and was also one of the Rutles.
