#131 No Agreement: Tony Allen Tribute


Tony Allen, who has been dubbed the father of Afro-Beat, died at the age 80 last week on the day we recorded this. If you listen to us at all, you know that 3 of us are drummers and Tony Allen was a huge influence on us. His style and ferocity as a player were as unique as the music he was associated with. We pay tribute to Tony and Afro-Beat with a few beers, Jay Rose actually cracked (and finished by himself) a bottle of wine, and we continue to try make some sort of sense of our current situation.
