Del Tha Funkee Homosapien: I Wish My Brother George Was Here (Elektra/All formats)

Dele Fadele, New Musical Express, 18 January 1992

THE GROOVY, art-directed cover image finds Del Tha Funkee Homosapien in repose: scared stiff and crouching in a forest, hounded by numerous disembodied eyes. Like Wole Soyinka's English translation of the Yoruba standard horror-tale The Forest Of A Thousand Daemons brought screaming to life, this is 1992 personified. And it bodes well for the contents of the debut LP within.
