Witch - "Lazy Bones" {Zambia} (1975) (psychedelic/afro rock)

Completely unknown band from Zambia, privately pressed on a small local label, this 5 piece electric band plays a strong electric African underground style. Tons of wah wah-fuzz guitar in every track, African style beats and vocals and all original song. If bands from Nigeria such as Blo and Ofege and bands from Zambia such as Rikki Ililonga and Chrissy Zebby are all traveling on the psychedelic highway with 100 mph the Witch overtakes them with 120. On the cover we can read: If you're feeling depressed, low, disturbed, out-of-sorts, sad, frustrated or widely demented, then folks, we suggest you seek out a quiet place, indulge in some soothing meditation and cut away that headache by listening to this inspiration album.(review taken from earrational) thanks to Piotr for the rip. Keep Listening.

Really a great album. From Zambia with a lot of wah-fuzz guitar and very fine vocal.

Man, I was in the Peace Corps in Zambia and you can buy all of the witch 4 cds at the record shop in the capital Lusaka. They are insanely good. The world should knwo that Zambia wasn't always in the shape it is now. In the 70's they were so happy, livin and lovin. Long live Zambia!!

I've been trying to find more psychedelic funk, and this sounds like it will fulfill my appetite. I look forward to hearing BLO also.

For those looking for more Psych-Funk, I would recommend listening to Purple Image and Cosmic Travelers. Both are great bands who fuse funk and psych with great results.
