Image: 1610821 Led by Trombonist Toli Nameless (who recorded with Antibalas on
their classic version of Willie Colon’s Che Che Colé), 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, let alone these three recordings that we are
proud to bring to you today. 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.
We dug into the vaults, mastered and unearthed these jams from
Toli & The Femm Nameless the proper way, on a heavy weight piece
of 10” vinyl! The release includes a dance floor monster- a cover of
Nina Simone’s 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).
