Originally issued in 1983, African Head Charge's third album Drastic Season heralded a major change in their sound. The first of their LPs recorded at producer Adrian Sherwood's new Southern Studios, its use of state-of-the-art digital technology is startling, and although the group remains a primarily instrumental concern, the differences compared to previous records are vast.
Drastic Season – 8/10. Many of the effects used would form, or may already have been included in, the sound armoury of Sherwood. African Hedge Hog and Depth Charge in particular were uncompromising pieces of avant garde collage and the band could now firmly say that they had indeed created a genre of their own with few dubs and more ‘weird’. Drastic Season was largely instrumental with Sherwood now stamping his own inimitable style.
