Flame suit on~.. though I really love the album, I was never a fan of the générique. I don’t know what it is, but it just doesn’t do it for me. Maybe too many changements de fréquences. The part I like the most is 3:50-4:30 - legendary cri from Mboshi

Me too, it took me a VERY long time to like the Generique I think the mistake they made was not letting Lebou Kabuya play on lead instead preferring Pitchou Concorde.

Compared to Saction, I totally understand why you guys like this generic less. Why was Pitchou given soloist role since he was new? Was Lebou already falling out with Sam?

Somono really disappointed as far as animations go, you could tell on this album that he wasn't as inspired anymore.

Lebou and Pitshou shared the roles on the generic.

Lebou Kabuya played the first part of the generic and Pitshou Concorde the last part of ma-kiliba.

@Mfumu Vata

Was the album recorded live with Pitshou switch from mi-solo to lead guitar at ma-kiliba? Or is it multi-tracking where each part is recorded separate then edited together.

I've gotta disagree with you there, I liked Somono's participation in the album, Especially "Appel moi" and "En va tomber".

I think that they recorded live and then re-recorded each part separatly, like most Congolese albums, but with the difference that Pitshou added his part. Or maybe that Lebou gave the guitar to Pitshou when that part came. Many Congolese bands don't play mi-solo on their albums, only on concerts. Btw the Viagra-booklet says that there wasn't mi-solo played on the generic


Viagra isn't the only generic where you got two solists. Operation Dragon had Burkina Faso on the lead, but the end was done by Flamme. The same for Anti Terro which was recorded with three solists (Pathy Moleso, Burkina Faso and Patou Solo) and them each having their own part.

it would be interesting if ado could interview them about academia since the parts about the departure from quartier latin was pretty much done,it would be interesting to hear stories and maybe better explanation of fallouts for example when somono followed sam in kinshasa dressed like a traditional chief with arrows in his back singing bizarre songs,the fallout of sam and modogo(even way after academia  i remember at some point sam and modogo beefed because modogo did not like sam calling him petit and sam reminding to modogo that he is the friend of his little brother and not his friend and things like that
 plus the creation of quartier latin integral(with cnn and his aborted experience with bcbg and in cultura where he came with kindoki to fight against louange and gesac)

lol, Somono. It brought me immediatly back to the interview he made on one of those polemic-VHS, after his departure lol. If you attack a Muyaka, then you can except problems. They don't joke with their arrows and nkisi. Richard King, Jacky de Piolani and Gaspard Love have to wake up and upload those rare interviews.

wasn't it the same CNN who made Gentamicine sick when he came for a test in Quartier Latin, before joining BCBG ?

I can already imagine Modogo's interview. He will avoid all polemic questions and not blame one person (blaming everyone to avoid problems). Lebou and Somono will fire shots the whole interview to Sam. I remember Lebou becoming furious everytime when Stella Olowa was mentioning Sam's name, during a interview he made in 2011 for Congomikili (So sad how Congomikili ended).

@Mfumu Vata

Did CNN intend to replace Tutu Caludji as tenorist atalaku? Because I recall that concert where he finished things off with his cries from Volte de Face @ 1hr 22 minutes.



I feel like he would do well in Cultura had Papy Louange not been around. What do you think? It's a shame he never found another band given his talent
