Summary

Seriously? How is this not already a movie? A shipwreck full of synthesizers on an island with limited electricity off the coast of Africa in 1968? And... and... I don't even want to spoil it for you. For real, read the liner notes! It's The Gods Must Be Crazy meets the X-Files only set during a Vietnam-era rebellion againt a repressive colonial government. Plus it's got grooves and hooks to spare. It's the only behind-the-music story I know that might even top that of Leon Theremin. A tremendous find for the crate-digging label Analog Africa. If there's any justice, they'll be getting a lot more exposure when the movie version is lining up its Oscar noms.
