Catalog # : LP-KFR-2015 Artist : Kuti, Fela UPC : 720841207511 Label : Knitting Factory Records Street Date : 7/15/2014 Nigerian police, seeking to put down this independent-minded rascal, tried to plant a joint on Kuti during a gathering at his home. Wise to their plan, he quickly swallowed the joint, but the police then threw him in jail to produce the evidence from his faeces. He escaped charges with some wily plotting, and then produced this song mocking the police for wasting resources on hassling him instead of furthering justice in Nigeria. Opening brass rounds give way to interplay between Fela’s narration about the episode and responses from his group of female singers.
