Reviews

Biko is an astounding collaboration between Robert Wyatt and Adrian Sherwood and a total departure for the latter in terms of sonic structure.
The power of the song is in many ways derived from its subject matter, the bloody 1977 assassination by South African black consciousness theorist and activist at the hands of the South African security forces.
This haunting song has remained with me from the first time I heard it on John Peel and remains one of of those almost hidden classics.
