Knitting Factory Records re-released Fela Kutis “No Agreement” on vinyl, which was previously only available as part of the Box Set series. Fela used the phrase “disagree” in the same way that Malcolm X used “no flim flam, no compromise, no sell-out.” Fela`s text says he will never make peace with Nigeria`s corrupt and brutal military regime. “I don`t agree to make my brother hungry, I don`t speak, I agree to put my brother out of work, I don`t have a speech, I`m not going to agree, make my brother homeless, I don`t make conversations. no agreement today, no agreement tomorrow, no agreement now, later, never and never. Page 2, the instrumental “Dog Eat Dog, contains a Post-Bitches Brew, a Miles Davis-type trumpet solo, probably played by The Chicago Lester Bowie ensemble genre. Bowie spent a few months in Lagos, around the time the album was recorded (at the 1977 Festac) and participated in 70 African recording sessions. Reissued for the first time as part of the Fela Kuti Box Set #4 2018 organized by Erykah Badu. Originally published by Decca Afrodisia. Nothing can be done wrong with Amerigo. Afro beat and hip-hop have merged so delicately into this masterpiece. Koko_Lastiko. .
