Album Notes

Bright Sayings - Heralding a new age of optimism and unity, the merging of the ancient with the modern under the universal spirit of the motherland. Music for the entire family of humanity, with a positive message and a danceable groove. Bright are the sayings of the prophets, to give us the energy to really live.

Bright Sayings was first released as a cassette in 1988. It was a ground breaking underground debut for the artists Hasan Bakr and Kevin Nathaniel, which influenced countless other artists and landed the two in Japan to develop a new band. This enhanced remix of Bright Sayings updates and further develops the classic sound and statement of Bright Sayings. The voice of the prophet is timeless, at once ancient and modern.
