and a present for you it being the end of the week and all

here is what i am listening to

These two tracks are on the soundtrack for a brilliant seminal film about reggae called ‘Rockers‘, which I was introduced to by my good friend Charly Marley.. I really really recommend seeing it, nothing really happens.

Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace loses his bike and gets it back and a lot of incredible roots is played, all the greats are present, Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Lee Perry, Dennis Brown and Jacob Miller all [incidentally Horsemouth once came in to a studio I worked in in New Cross, with the Maytals – as in Toots and the Maytals – unfortunately I was too in awe to talk to him…]
