Fabricated nonsense
Fujio does not have a "black face" in homage to Chuck Berry. This is fabricated nonsense, like many other information in this book. His face is painted black, another members face is painted white, another members face is painted half-black half-white, another members face is painted black with white outlines, and finally Chabo is painted white with black stripes. Do you need to be baby-fed the artistic idea? Julian Cope you fabricating dumb-fuck

I don't know why the uploaded image replaced the Blues Creation images... maybe automatic because the file is larger? Sorry about that.

GET UP (RCA, 1975)
Jazz-funk veering towards mid to late-seventies fusion cheese, but still enjoyable, and still way better than Weather Report or soul-less wankers like that...cool cover art though, too bad the music isn`t as psychedelic....

ELECTRUM (Victor, 1970)
Absolutely killer, this is 10 times better than Uganda! About half the time I am diametrically opposed to Cope's views on music, both in the Japan and Krautrock books. I do appreciate the Japan book for getting me to discover Japan seventies music (after going to Tokyo for the past 10 years without knowing anything about it beyond a few faves like the FTB and the FEFB) This is psychedelic jazz, not stoner rock, and its great!

UGANDA (Toshiba, 1972)
Don't believe the hype, this is pretty lame...by the time things get cooking it's the last song and this way expensive and short CD is over...the problem is it's not African drums AND rock at the same time, just pretty good stoner wah guitar ala Guru Guru followed by drums and so on...the 1st instance where both of these facets are present at the same time is for less than a minute somewhere in the middle and then it quickly fades out...that's why the last song Pigmy is the only song worthwhile on this CD because that has both and it finally works, but it's definately not worth the $30 I dropped on this at Disk Union, Shinjuku...cool cover art, though...
