Nigeria Rock Special shines a light on the flipside of the sounds of Psychedelic Afro-Rock & Fuzz Funk coming out of Nigeria in the 1970s. Kids all over the world were picking up guitars. Spurred on by Cream drummer Ginger Baker's visits to Lagos and his band Airforce (featuring many Nigerian musicians), the rock reverberated around the universities and the craze that followed hit the youth population of Nigeria hard -- mixing fuzz guitar and heavy African rhythms with elements of Led Zeppelin, Traffic and The Chambers Bros. Here are 15 of the best for the 1st time in 30 years and include Ofege, The Action 13, The Hygrades, The Wings, Mono Mono, Tabukah "X", The Funkees, Joe King Kologbo & His Black Sound, Tunji Oyelana and more.
