Afrika70…..Baddest Band In Africa – Stereophonic-Supply Pays Tribute!

Afrika70…..The Baddest Band In Africa – Stereophonic-Supply pays tribute…


While it might look like a bit of a vanity overload I couldn’t resist popping off some shots of the stereophonic-supply Africa70 tees while I was in Greece….the light was intense and fashion brands spend thousands to doing shoots in the Caribbean or the Mediterranean … so why not? Having just read Tony Allen’s excellent autobiography where he talks in depth about his time with Fela and Afrika70 and also recalling a story that the late great Art Ensemble trumpet player Lester Bowie told me about arriving at Kalakuta Republic…

Lester: I’m looking for Fela
Kid: You a musician?
Lester: Yeah
Kid: Are you any good?
Lester: Yeah
Kid: You’d better be cos this is the baddest muthafuckin’ band in Africa!

… I thought… yeah…. Africa70… THE BADDEST band in Africa! Love these tees. Nuff said.
