Tribute To John Stevens Short info: ďRight here, right now ADF are the most important band in Britain.Ē NME 1997 Rafiís Revenge originally peaked at number 20 on the UK Albums Chart and was shortlisted for the 1998 Mercury Music Prize, with Bobby Gillespie hailing them at the time as Ďthe best live act in Britainí. This 21 year anniversary reissue includes a limited edition, coloured 2xLP plus expanded digital & CD editions with bonus tracks selected by Adrian Sherwood. To celebrate the release the band are playing at Rich Mix, London on 28th March. By the time they recorded Rafiís Revenge in 1998, Asian Dub Foundation were primed to explode. Having initially emerged from East Londonís grassroots Community Music project as a largely studio-based collective, the band had galvanised themselves into a riotously exciting touring machine by the late Nineties. Their extraordinary live shows around this period were electrifying to witness, kinetic and dynamic, incendiary and euphoric, confrontational yet celebratory. For sheer roof-raising energy, they were unrivalled. ADF have evolved enormously over the last two decades, of course, but their breakthrough album remains a fascinating chapter in the real, complex, unwritten history of Britpop. Expanded and enlarged for this anniversary edition, these multi-layered musical treasures still dazzle and delight with their grandiose ambition and riotous energy. ē Band to play ĎRafiís Revengeí gig at Rich Mix London 28th March 2019 + Paris gig TBC (March / April) ē Band part of Music & Immigration major exhi
