'IMF,' Seun Kuti and Egypt 80: predatory international aid agencies as zombies
"IMF," which stands this time not for International Monetary Fund, but International Motherfuckers, by Seun Kuti and Egypt 80.
Super bangin' track from his new record, "A Long Way to the Top."
They're touring the US right now--I haven't seen them yet, but I can only imagine they're wonderful live.
Seun's dad was the late great Nigerian activist and musician Fela Anikulapo Kuti, whom I was very fortunate to have seen live, and met, in the late 1980s.
But this is not his father's Afrobeat. This is something new, and something entirely his own.
