Wells Fargo - Watch Out! Rock Music and Revolution in 70's Zimbabwe

  • £25.00


Wells Fargo were at the forefront of a heavy rock, revolutionary counter culture scene in mid 70’s Zimbabwe, then called Rhodesia. This is the first time their music has been issued outside of the country. Matthew Shechmeister tells the story of Wells Fargo drawing on interviews with the band’s remaining members and numerous trips to Zimbabwe to investigate the genesis of the heavy rock scene under Ian Smith’s oppressive government, and its dissipation after Zimbabwe’s liberation. Never-before-published photographs and rare ephemera color the vibrant era of which this band was part.
