Afrodelic Kraut Funk business from Karl Hector & The Malcouns, an outfit comprised of members of Poets Of Rhythm and Whitefield Brothers.  

'Unstraight Ahead' is an album where the West African sounds of Ghana and Mali meet the East African sounds of Mulatu Astatke’s Ethiopian jazz and are tied together with the groove heavy experimentalism of The Malcouns’ 70s Krautrock godfathers: Can, of course, but also more obscure and equally adventurous groups like Agitation Free, Ibliss and Tomorrow’s Gift.
