The Missing Brazilians Warzone on LP + Download
On-U Sound is pleased to reissue The Missing Brazilians 1984 LP Warzone. The group was a typically loose collective, masterminded by Adrian Sherwood and included contributions from the likes of Kishi Yamamoto, Bonjo I and Eskimo Fox. Bombastic, futuristic, loud and full of curiosity, this is one of the most envelope-pushing records on the label: a rhythmic collision of noise, dub and electronics.
Sherwood pushed the possibilities of the studio to the limit, capturing dystopian mid-80s cold war menace with layers of spatially-disorientating percussion, alien keyboard sounds and teeth-rattling distortion. Warzone includes vocal contributions from Shara Nelson (Massive Attack) and Annie Anxiety (Crass Records).
Re-cut at dubplates & mastering in Berlin for maximum bass pressure. The re-issue includes a fold-out poster insert, and download card for full album plus a previously unreleased extended mix of "Ace Of Wands," their contribution to the classic first volume of the long running Pay It All Back series.
