Houd je van lekker vreemd instrumentaal getrommel
en geblieb ? De meester op dit terrein was begin jaren
tachtig zonder twijfel Adrian Sherwood. Hier hebben we
nog zo’n sterk staaltje bizarre geluiden, congas, bongos,
friction drums, fish, cabassa, keukenpannen, basgitaren,
keyboards, chinese luit, elektrische percussie etcetera..

    Thanks Moos. Adrian Sherwood is one of the great producers, and has not only influenced me in my music choice but also my nephew (30 years younger than me) in his choice of career as a music producer. Listen, learn and above all enjoy!
