Not only did Mathew Morgan - Afro-Punk Director James Spooner's business partner - give us permission to screen Afro-Punk, for a very minimal (almost free!) fee, he also gave us a copy of the Afro-Punk compilation CD.
(Review from logoonline.com)
"Afro Punk may be misnamed as a compilation, but it contains utterly great music. In fact, the tunes here range from the new punk-metal (the opener "Protoculture (Sankofa)" by Cipher), to hardcore ("Kémite (Kahi)" by D-Fe), to melodic punk ("Are You Still Working at That Café?" by Yaphet Kotto, not the actor) to new wave futurism ("Space Dancehall" by Eternals) to emo ("Dance in Blood and Pretend It's Snow" by Fitts and "Boot" by Tamar-Kali) to post-punk and garage rock (" Not Ready" by Slack Republic). And there's much more here in this dizzying, dazzling sampler. This is a compelling and utterly engaging listening experience form front to back, especially for those punters who have the "shuffle" option on the sound box. ~ Thom Jurek, All Music Guide
Not forgetting folk punk ("Loose lips" by Kimya Dawson) I didn't even know folk punk existed!
1. “Protoculture (Sankofa)” by Cipher
This alien bitterness I'm fed. Deuteronomy Chapter 5, Verse
10, "I bestow mercy down to the thousandth generation, on
the children of those who love me and keep my
commandments.” They round them all up. They ordered us
dead 100 thousand, thousand men, women, and children.
Shackled like chattel. Beat 'til we bled. And they all said
so if you wanna burn yourself remember that I LOVE YOU
and if you wanna cut yourself remember that I LOVE YOU
and if you wanna kill yourself remember that I LOVE YOU
call me up before you’re dead, we can make some plans instead
send me an IM, i'll be your friend
16. “Loose Lips” by Kimya Dawson
3. “Are You Still Working At That Café?” by Yaphet Kotto
(they'll never take us all alive;
i work too hard to deal with this shit)
subversive living leaving scars
citizens are tearing a part of you;
this wasn't in the job description
