African Head Charge is a psychedelic dub ensemble active since the early 1980s.[1] The group was formed by percussionist Bonjo Iyabinghi Noah, and featured a revolving cast of members, including Prisoner, Crocodile, Junior Moses, Sunny Akpan, Skip McDonald, and Jah Wobble. The group released most of its albums on Adrian Sherwood's label, On-U Sound.[2]

Journalist David Stubbs, writing in The Wire, said "The notion of African Head Charge was hatched when Adrian Sherwood read Brian Eno's comment about his vision for a "psychedelic Africa"".[3]

Many of their early albums have been re-released as double albums on CD.
