    Mighty Organ – Top Ten Reggae Organ Classics

    Aug 17 • Featured, Reggae • 14815 Views

    In 1968, when the rest of the world were feeling the summer of love, Kingston Jamaica was bubblin’ hot.

    The choppy organ sound that had long been a bit-player in the ska and rock steady scenes had taken a new turn to emerge as a central anchor for the emerging reggae music, and leading that change was electricity – specifically electric instruments. Continue Reading

    A Little Less Conversation, Please…

    Aug 15 • Americana • 3470 Views

    I first met Elvis Presley in a dive bar in Fuertaventura. I didn’t know he was Elvis at first. We were just shooting the breeze at the bar, chatting about tourists and the musical fashions of 1999 or whatever it was. Continue Reading

    Where Did Our Love Go?

    Aug 13 • Americana, Featured, The Rhythm The Rebel • 2894 Views

    As a child I was spoilt rotten by beautiful women. It’s true. The glamourpusses on TV – Shirley Bassey, Diana Ross, Martha Reeves – were just like my mum and her fabulous sisters, still teenage or thereabouts. All makeup and powder and hairspray. I was the apple of their eye. Continue Reading

    Crown Prince Dennis Brown

    Aug 10 • Featured, Reggae • 3595 Views

    Around 79-80 all the biggest reggae sounds came on big thick disco 45s.

    12″ sized vinyl on the first flight from Jamaica that tended to featured a hit song (not infrequently a re-cut of a rocksteady hit everyone in Jamaica knew well), mixed to a wicked toast by one of the top DJs of the day and then a big fat instrumental ‘version’ poured generously over the back of it.

    Down In The Tube Station at Midnight

    Aug 8 • British • 5294 Views

    “A distant echo. Of faraway voices boarding faraway trains…

    The Jam’s classic single “Down In The Tube Station at Midnight”  evokes a very real fear – not completely eroded – of being trapped in a violent situation late at night in London’s Victorian underground network. Continue Reading

    I knew all about Cliff ‘cos of Auntie Chris.

    She’s still going strong, well into her seventies, but I’ll tell you what she lived the life. She married a bloke who was the spit of Stanley Baker and was a big fan of british rock and roll from day one. Continue Reading

    Motorhead – 1916

    Aug 5 • British, Featured • 3421 Views

    Commemorating the great war in song is a serious business, and yet it’s the heartfelt works that spring to mind on the anniversary.

    Lemmy Kilmister was and still is one of British rock’s legend outsiders. Never taken seriously by critics, he was always a full-on hard rock crowd pleaser and his energy never relented – his band Motohead the closest England got to the Ramones. Continue Reading

    I can’t tell you what a blast it was to hear this on a club sound system for the first time.

    Because the early hip hop and rap cuts shipped on quality 12″ vinyl, and I had some valve amp disco speakers as best friends, I knew full well what a woofer and a tweeter was. Continue Reading

    Little Red Corvette is now such a pop classic – one of Prince’s best known songs globally – it’s hard to remember what a controversial figure he was back in 1983 when this came out. Continue Reading
