That brilliant pallet of warm reds of hate painted wet over blue hues of playful swinging funk is why this track is a wonderful masterpiece.
Crowning off our review is another band that has ventured to feature female vocals perhaps not only in this particular piece but as a long term plan as the band works on the second offspring to its discography. If you had any doubts as to the unmatched technical and vocal technique of these fellas then this song just sold itself to the jury, even though we’ve had to wait a few years for that.
As far as artist management is concerned you may be well advised to follow the lead of the Swahili Hard Rock band RASH. A year or so ago we had a new band enter the scene riding on the wave of a smashing hit called ‘Darkness and Witchcraft.’ They were different. They had great guitarists, a wonderful drummer and a vocalist that sounded like a pleasant banshee. They were doing things different not just musically but also administratively. Working behind the scenes with a similar framework to ParkingLotGrass, they had Maria Ahmed working as their band manager. A delightful individual with diverse interests and experience, she took on the mantle of tapping the local rock market that is always looking for new material and perspectives.
It’s the 14th of March and I am making my way to my first ever gig this year. This one was announced without prior warning but I just had to attend. Characteristically christened, this event featured the quintessential Swahili Rock Band “Rash” and frontrunner Heavy Metal Bands Last Year’s Tragedy and Mortal Soul.
