• Atila
  • International Sandwich (Fish Ranch) 1983 

A bizarre, eclectic concoction of disparate styles — hardcore, calypso, psychedelia and dub reggae are just four — by a witty Californian with an international outlook and a bunch of talented friends. Don’t be put off by the moronic lyrics — simply be amazed by Atila’s pan-ethnic variety. His absorption and humorous adaptation of musics from Africa, Asia, Europe and North America is truly unique. Strange, intriguing and impressive.
