Led by Trombonist Toli Nameless (who recorded with Antibalas on their classic version of Willie ColonŠ—Ès Che Che Col’©), The Femm Nameless picked up where the Godfather of Afro beat, Fela Anikulapo Kuti left off, just after meeting Sandra Izsadore. They were an 8-piece band, comprised ENTIRELY of women, with a powerful and un-mistakable energy that could only come from a woman, or in this case, eight women.
Unless you were in Brooklyn in 2003, you may have never heard of the Femm Nameless, long defunct, the group disbanded after some active years of performing live and recording an incredible demo that never saw the light of day - until now.
These jams were unearthed fromξthe vaults, mastered and pressed in the proper way: on a heavy weight piece of 10Š—? vinyl! The release includes a dance floor monster- a cover of Nina SimoneŠ—Ès See Line Woman, flipped upside down in fine Afro Beat fashion!
The ideas on the record were put together by Toli, along with Tom Brenneck (of The Dapkings, The Budos Band and The Menahan Street Band) and Ernesto Abreau (of Antibalas) . The record was recorded and engineered in East Flatbush, Brooklyn by Sydney Mills (of Steel Pulse).
