format: CD digipack
UPC: 8013252911125 (CD)
Hailing from late-sixties Detroit, Black Merda (pronounced “Murder”) were both aesthetically and musically way ahead of their time. When most black groups (including Parliament / Funkadelic) were still sporting suits, singing about love and using a horn section, Black Merda had already become a tight guitar-heavy freak-funk four piece. By weaving guitar rock and psychedelia into soul and R&B they were the gods of the underground “black rock” movement which fell somewhere between Jimi Hendrix and Parliament and MC5. But it wasn t just about the music the message was just as important, starting with the band s name (Black Murder – in protest of the mass slaughter of African Americans during the Civil Rights Movement). As in the original release, features a 30-second 11th track not mentioned in the track listing on the outer sleeve but present on the album.
