It was in June 1971-near Washington D.C. - 8 students at Mckinley Tech High were daydreaming of national fame. They spent countless hours in band practice, combining a highly energetic mass of instrumentalization, vocals and multi layered soul music calling themselves "The Sound Affect Band" at first. Later the group changed their name to "Mugo Kenyatta" meaning wise musicians in Swahili. They eventually shortened it up to just "Mugo".
Mugo hit the streets by the mid-1970s. Though slated to be the first of many releases on "United World Records" the single featuring "Organize" and "Space Travel" were the only releases. Their following music never left the master tape. By the 1980's the group disbanded. And now in 2012 Kay Dee Records has put together these recordings making it an almost all unreleased album of material with the help of Kevin Coombe and Dave
Griffiths. Featuring mixes from Kenny Dope at his Kay Dee studios.
