Abdul Tee-Jay

Orb fans may have noted a certain African flavour to ‘Star 6&789’ from the first album, and AFD fans will certainly have noted a hefty dose in the whole of ‘Salvage’. This is why – I played with Abdul TJ for four years, and he taught me more about rhythm than anyone before or since. I owe this man … and he’s now back in London, which makes me ridiculously happy. Here is, rocking out Brixton’s Ritzy in exactly the same way as we rocked out the Bass Clef club (which became the Blue Note) back in 1985. He is, without a doubt, one of the best guitarists ever to come out of Sierra Leone. Anyone wanting to offer the man a gig can get in touch with me and I’ll pass it on…
