As though to justify my recent rave about their archival efforts, Now-Again strikes uh, again, with the announcement of the Nigerian Fuzz-Funk anthology, a compilation that promises to succeed in being both categorically awesome and sounding like the name of a rare Equatorial disease. Partnering up with Uchenna Ikonne of the phenomenal With Comb & Razor blog, the label is in the midst of ransacking attics and Lagos flea markets (I imagine) in time for a mid-2010 release. Including lesser-known notables like The Hykkers, The Hygrades, Tirogo, Faces, The Strangers, and Wrinkar Experience, according to Now-Again, the effort promises to be the first to include actual licenses from the bands themselves.

As always, the imprint is giving away free tunes, including Wrinkar’s most popular track, “Money To Burn,” which is apparently in the process of receiving a Rick Ross rendition with Khaled on the remix shouting “We Get Money.” In addition, the similarly excellent Voodoo Funk blog has made a mix entitled You Can Shake Your Bones, which will undoubtedly cause you to emulate these folk.
