    Wingless Angels is the debut release from Keith Richards' Mindless Records. The Nyabinghi, to which the Wingless Angels belong, are a strict Rastafarian sect; Old Testament dreadlock devotees who worship the Emperor Haile Selassie. Their Grounation drum sessions can last for days, lit by bonfires at night, with relay teams of drummers generating a spiritual force field, Wingless Angels' chants ancient and modern, evoke the spirit of tranquil resolution that the presence of Haile Selassie aroused among the Dreads. They are a potent magic, invoking Biblical cosmology to heal and inspire: Noah's Ark on 'Keyman'; radiant unity with the Almighty on 'No Dark There'."
