Expensive Shit was produced by Fela Kuti and contains two long tracks: the title cut, which clocks in at a little over 13 minutes, and "Water No Get Enemy." As with all of Kuti's recordings, the groove here is what makes or breaks them. A lone guitar playing a jazz riff is joined by a percussive and spooky piano before a synth and a single drum add dimension. As the piano picks it up and myriad percussion winds its way in, the band kicks in full force and the ass-shaking Afro-funk trance commences. Even as the horns enter the picture, the hypnotic strangeness is enough and carries on through Fela's saxophone solo. When the vocals kick in, it's almost too much to bear. "Water Get No Enemy" is righteous, funky, and spacious all at the same time. The bleating horn section punches through the bass, keyboards, and drums; wordless vocals are chanted, setting up a call and response with the music. Fela's solo opens up the jam from the inside before the horns rejoin the party. It's rough and tumble but utterly intoxicating. Highly recommended.
