Hull: Hull University, [1971]. First Edition. Poster silk-screened in blue, gold, and red. Mild wear, creasing. Some rubbing. Else bright and sound. Very good. (Item ID: 22826)

Original poster for an Afro Rock event at Hull University, featuring one of the most important bands of the movement, Assagai. Afro Rock, which had its strongest incarnation in the UK in the late sixties and early seventies, combined Western rock instrumentation with African and Afro-Cuban rhythms and percussion. Assagai featured emegrees from both South Africa and Nigeria, as well a Ghana; the lineup included drummer Louis Moholo, trumpeter/flautist Mongezi Feza, alto saxophonist Dudu Pukwana, tenor saxophonist Bizo Mngqikana, guitarist/bassist Fred Coker (their chief songwriter), and Terri Quaye ó the first professional female congaist in the UK. Assagai issued just two highly-reguarded albums (both in 1971) on Vertigo Records, one of the few if not the only all-black band signed to that legendary rock label, and this poster dates from that peak. While they broke up shortly after this gig, the members went on to long careers in various other jazz and prog groups. A striking poster from this significant but poorly documented group.
