Los Nickelos – Merveilles du Passé 1966
african 360.157, 1986

Los Nickelos, front

It’s been a crazy week with no chance on a post.
Work has been capturing my time the whole week.
Glad to be able to bring you the next record, Let’s see,

I can’t seem to find any information on this group.
One of the ‘african 360.000 series’ albums I failed to
post so far is this one. Los Nickelos appear on this
Merveilles du Passé Congolese lp, 12 very relaxed
songs you will surely like. Names we find at the
backsleeve are Jo Rino, Zatho, Zizi, Macky and
Masta, if you can fill us in here..
get it & spread it…

    Dear Moos, thank you very much for this wonderful and very important LP. Los Nickelos were a group of congolese students in Bruxelles, with them the new age started. But other followers can tell a lot more, I’m sure. Nevertheless thank you very, very much. Best regards.

    For an emigre group, they certainly don’t sound as though they’d been swallowed up by those horrible Parisian production values. Nice disc.
