Fela Kuti

This morning I discovered, completely by accident, that it takes precisely the same time to walk to work as it does to listen to Fela Kuti’s You Gimme Shit I Give You Shit from his (no-doubt seminal) Live in Amsterdam album.

Is this some kind of record?


  1. Yeah, its a live record isn’t it Frase?

  2. Only if it’s round, black and has a hole in the middle.

  3. “Hamaiian Disco Bollocks” by The Boredoms on their seminal Soul Discharge ’99 collection lasts for the exact amount of time it takes me to say “You Gimme Shit I Give You Shit”, no matter what speed I speak at.

  4. If it’s round and black with a hole in the middle, surely it’s a car tyre ?
