Reissue of Nigerian psychedelic rock/funk album, originally released by Clover Sound in 1977. Mix righteous fuzz guitar, bad-ass keyboards and ecstatic African rhythms and what have you got? ‘Celebration’ by Aktion, a slab of of heavy Afro-funk-pysch-rock from the hardest working band in '70s Nigeria….~


Previously the Action 13, this is the bands second LP for Clover Records whose blend of rock and funk was popular in eastern Nigeria 
Ridiculously, ludicrously sick Afro funk psych fuzz heavyweight! It’s like if Hendrix was in the Stooges with Bernie Worrell! Literally every track is a shredder, with some over the top fuzz guitar wailing, wicked synths, rippin’ bass and fatback drums…..~


Mix righteous fuzz guitar, bad-ass keyboards and ecstatic African rhythms and what have you got? Celebration by Aktion - a slab of of heavy Afro-funk-pysch-rock from the hardest working band in 70s Nigeria. Aktion had a residency at the Lido Night Club and Restaurant in Warri but toured constantly. Drummer Ben Alaka and Bass player Renny Pearl Nwosa created a bedrock of hardcore rhythm that allowed the rest of the band to cut loose and follow their own groove. Celebration, their second album, sees Aktion at the height of their powers. Ben Alaka had claimed his crown as the best drummer in the country (Proof: the intro to ‘Centepede’), keyboardist Zeaky George has got his freak on (have a listen to ‘We’re Laughing’) and Jimi Lee’s searing guitar breaks were leaving scorch marks across every track (‘Celebration’, ‘Groove The Funk’, take your pick.) Sadly, Celebration was also their last album. Renny and Lemmy left to form The Stormmers. Jimmi Lee hooked up with Mona Finnih and discovered disco. But Celebration remains a psych rock monster - and a funky, fuzz-filled tribute to Nigeria’s rocking east. - Peter Moore….~
