The psychedelic rock sound that flowed out of London and San Francisco in the mid-1960s (heard in The Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever” and Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit,” for example) also found many adherents in sub-Saharan Africa. The sound of crunchy fuzzbox guitars, rolling organ solos, and reverb-heavy recording had a profound influence on Tirogo, a short-lived ’ 70s psych-rock band from Lagos, Nigeria. The band sought to combine the feedback-heavy soundtrack of the 1967 Summer of Love with the frenetic Afrobeat sound of Nigerian superstar Fela Kuti. This EP, a 1977 recording reissued by a German record label, does an able job of showing the raucous music scene that flourished in Lagos after the end of the country’s civil war in 1970. Like the album’s lead title track, “Float,” much of this music mixes African funk and American guitars into rousing jam songs. At times, the lyrics have different concerns from those of American and U.K. psychedelic bands. “Feed the Nation” tackles Nigeria’s then-existing food shortage, exhorting its listeners to grow more food on their own land. An Englishlanguage release — Tirogo wouldn’t start singing in Yoruba till later in its career — this first album can tend toward the humdrum with spaced-out songs like “Gypsy Girl.” But for music fans whose tastes run to both Afrobeat and psychedelic garage rock, this might be a welcome listen.
