    Where is Kodwo?

    I read the autobiography ages back but can’t remember much about it. Was interested in that book you mention but might give it a swerve. You want the whole epic Hollywood drama not some sociology text.

    They are but so were a lot of tunes from then? There’s no Photek revival?
