In the early '80s, producer Craig Leon (Blondie, the Ramones, Suicide) recorded Nommos and Visiting on synthesizers and a Linn drum machine. It was a sort of motorik electronic folk music he imagined might have been enjoyed by the aliens who loom large in the mythology of Mali's Dogon tribe. It holds up well, judging from an upcoming reissue, suggesting a finely textured high-tech jam session of African drummers and stellar visitors. Also: American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) and Bill Kouligas.
