A burst of machine-gun guitar followed by the banshee-like howl of lead singer Libba Walker kicks off "Propaganda Machine," the opening track of Vova Nova's self-titled 1992 release. It sets the tone for the entire record, which seldom gives listeners a chance to catch their breath.

Vova Nova was a funk rock band from Birmingham, Alabama, originally formed as Forecast in 1978. Its two founding members were Glen Butts and Libba Walker; Mark Lanter joined the band as its drummer in 1980, and Milton Davis followed as bassist in 1984. By the late 1980s, the band had changed its name to the Cast, and in 1991, they signed with Chameleon Records, which was taken over by Elektra Records the following year.

They released one album as Vova Nova on Chameleon in 1992; the self-titled album was produced by Paul Ebersold. Their later musical style was notably influenced by the music of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. After releasing Vova Nova, the band's record deal ended, whereupon they renamed themselves "the Cast" again. Soon afterward, Davis left the band because he had written I Know, a song performed by Dionne Farris, and Lanter soon followed suit. In 1993, Lanter was replaced by the band's new drummer, Leif Bondarenko, and the band continued to play into the mid-1990's.

If you like some hard hitting funk rock then this album is a gem. Local band from Birmingham Al of all places. Libba is an excellent vocalist not to mention her flute playing is stellar. I was fortunate to see this band live back in the day and the album really does capture their energy. Social issues are evident in the songwriting and still stand true today.I still listen to this album even though its over 20 years old.
