Afire (Wah Wah)
60s / 70s Rock / Pop / Progressive / Kraut
Reissued on vinyl, this is the 1973 full-length from the band led by kraut and jazz drummer Klaus Weiss, formerly of Sunbirds. The material on this astonishing album returns to the minimal, percussion based sounds and rhythms of Niagara's first album, though this time there's a stronger sense of harmony. The musicians heard on 'Afire' include Embryo's bass player Dave King and percussionists George Brown, Sabu Rex and Norman Tolbert. Released in an edition of 500 copies, this new vinyl version comes with remastered sound, original (fluorescent) artwork and an info insert.
