Ships In 2/3 Days
Released in 1983, Drastic Season is the third album from African Head Charge. More so than most that make the claim, African Head Charge could truthfully make the assertion at this stage in their career that the music they were making was a genre unto itself, defying all forms of categorisation.

Described by producer Adrian Sherwood as "experiments in active frequencies, out of time noises, rhythms within rhythms, and endless tape edits,"€ this LP houses elements of traditional African percussion, field recordings and roots reggae, whilst some parts conjure up the stripped-back post-rock of Can or Tortoise.
