At last, fresh installments in Honest Jon's acclaimed, much-loved series: open-hearted, bitter-sweet, mash-up postcards to the here and now, from young black London.

The fifth and sixth volumes features four more songs from Lord Kitchener, of which topics include his wife leaving him for a GI, cricket umpires, and a fling onboard an ocean-liner and West Indian poultry. Other calypsos range compellingly from the devaluation of the pound through jiu jitsu, big rubbery instruments, football fans, heavyweight champ Joe Louis and the sexual allure of English women police. Melancholic, visionary West African highlife from Ambrose Campbell; a percussive Latin scorcher from Ginger Johnson, Jamaican mento from Tony Johnson, Latin-African-jazz experiments of Ghanaian drummer and percussionist Buddy Pipp and lots more.
