Keep Bangin’ On The Walls
It’s albums like this that remind how progressive UK music is. From the days of ‘Rafi’s Revenge’ to the newest ADF album ‘Enemy of the Enemy’ it is clear by this live album that ADF are still going strong. What makes ADF so unique is the cross culture synthesis of music and intellectual conscience of lyrics. There are so many influences in ADF's music. ‘Their distinctive sound is a combination of hard ragga-jungle rhythms, indo-dub basslines, searing sitar- inspired guitars and 'traditional' sounds gleaned from their parents' record collections, shot through with fast-chat conscious lyrics’(taken from ADF website).
I feel the guitar influence in their music gives them a unique edge which could make even the hardest punk rocker relate to their music. Keep Bangin’ on the walls is a fast paced bass driven journey with times for spiritual reflection. A definite must for the music progressive enthusiast.
