The Story Of The Incredible Bongo Band

One for the vinyl nerds! This dude breaks down the story of Michael Viner, The Incredible Bongo Band, 'Apache' and 'Bongo Rock'. Well worth a watch, if only just to find out how the assasination of Bobby Kennedy inadvertantly gave birth to the ultimate breakbeat.

  1. This guy isn't that annoying Wicked22 fucker is it? Eh, even if it is this is still a good video.

    I may be in the minority on this one, but I like their cover of In-A-Gadda Da Vida more than Apache and Bongo Rock.

  2. i really hope not. thought he did a pretty good job on it though.

  3. Just a little extra flavour on that clip. King Errisson has another classic break to his name, "Have A Nice Day", as sampled by Roxanne Shante -
