Shake It


If you can keep up with Honest Jon's 12-inch output you will know that Tony Allen's Lagos No Shaking LP has been remixed and reinterpreted a number of times over the past 12-18 months. Now all these versions and excursions have been pulled together on a single release entitled Lagos Shake - A Tony Allen Chop Up. The artwork comes from Lagos artist Demola Ogunajo. The cover comes from the Gadawan Kura series of photographs of street entertainers by Peter Hugo
