Now-Again presents a series of four, limited edition 45 rpm singles ranging from Deep American Funk and Soul, Zimbabwean Fuzz Funk, Zambia Proto Punk and Rare Disco. 500 copies of each 7" will be produced, and there will not be a repress. These records are packaged in a die cut, picture sleeve and are packaged in a resealable plastic jacket. A download card for all eight tracks from the series is inlcuded with each 7" the Sure Shot series continues with Chrissy Zebby Tembo and two proto-punk Zamrock tracks from the drummer behind Paul Ngozis Ngozi Family Band. The Ngozi Familys output is the focus of ongoing investigation and reissue on Now-Again. "Fisherman" was originally issued on Zebby Tembo's lauded My Ancestors album. "I'm Not Made of Iron," from his intitled third LP, has never been released in any form. Already available in the Sure Shot series, the spit 7" release from Stars of Liberty and Eye Q: two tracks from the 1970s Zimbabwean black rock scene and of course the split 7" from Richard Marks and Buddy Cantrell: two of America's most sought after deep funk/soul sides available on 7" single for the first time. Rounding off the series will be the Split Decision Band: one of the best independent disco songs ever released, out of the unlikely locale of Des Moines Iowa, in the late 1970s. a reissue of the original 45 version of this song is paired here with an unreleased version, taken from an album that the band recorded but never released. We will issue it at Now-Again in full in 2015.
