The Rough Guide To Planet Rock


16 tracks which delve into the influences rock music has had around the world from the blues of Tinariwern to rocking it up Tuvan style with Yat-Kha (their version of Iron Butterfly's 'In A Gadda Da Vida' is something else). Fear not there's nothing from The Darkness here but 16 tracks which includes the brilliant Gypsy punk of Gogol Bordello from Ukraine/Usa, wild guitar playing from Guinea's Ba Cissoko and my favourite Konono No 1 from Congo who are, well they are just wild. Great. Graham Radley
