Fela Ransome Kuti & Africa 80's 1989 release
Beasts of No Nation
A Re-issue from Knitting Factory Records 

Beasts Of No Nation, originally released in 1989, was an indictment of the 
corruption and repression in post-colonial Africa. The album, whose single
track took up both sides of the vinyl LP, addressed a variety of targets, 
each of them, said Fela, guilty of enslaving Africans: the Nigerian 
regime, the South African apartheid regime of P.W. Botha, Britain’s 
Margaret Thatcher, America’s Ronald Reagan, and the ineffectual United Nations. 
In addition to being vilified in the lyrics, Both, Thatcher and Reagan 
are among the political leaders portrayed as beasts and devils on the front sleeve

Side one is Beasts of No Nation (Part 1) 
Side Two is Beasts of No Nation (Part 2)
