Mississippi records / Chrissy Zebby Tembo & Ngozi Family My Ancestors LP
- Small producer
It could be argued that this is one of the greatest rock n’ roll records of all time! Straight from Zambia, we have My Ancestors. A tough rock and roll masterpiece like no other. Over ridden fuzz guitars, pop melodies and even a Black Sabbath-esque sounding song. Comes in an old school “tip on” cover. Must be heard to be believed. Originally released in 1974, My Ancestors is a an essential album from Zambia’s Zamrock scene that gave birth in the ’70s. Zamrock artists were greatly influenced by western rock acts by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, Beatles, Deep Purple and James Brown. Brimming with lo-fi fuzzed out guitars, the album endures within the darker undercurrent of ’70s rock and roll. Chrissy “Zebby” Tembo provided drums and vocals on the record while Paul Ngozi (Paul Dobson Nyirongo) was the group leader and guitarist who was responsible for the aggressive guitar leads.
