"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

yeah, well the title will be "contemporary african photographs", but its not really ready yet, as for the project it is actually a mix between famous african photographers, and amateurs. i'll let you know through J.A. comment board, it might be found in NYC, the people doing the book wanted to organise a exhibition, but lack of money i guess…

I think I was first aware of FMU in 98, from their blog, and when I tried out the music, it was way too out there for me at the time... how sucky for me that I only properly listened again over 10 years later
