Deep 80s Roots & Rub a Dub inna UK style pt 5 - Roots Bands

Deep 80s Roots & Rub a Dub inna UK style pt 5 - Roots Bands

Playing tracks by

Jah Warriors, A Pearson, Harlem spirit, Carnastoan, Reggae Regular and more.

Chart positions

This show was 4th in the global roots reggae chart, 7th in the global vinyl only chart and 26th in the global reggae chart.

Back to UK 80s Roots this week, with a focus on bands. Unlike in JA where bands’ main identity was a (often very fluid) studio recording outfit, in the UK, bands came more like the Rock band model, with strong identities as a unit, touring up and down the country and often releasing coherent LPs (rather than yard-style collection of singles). A few climbed to international fame, many didn’t but still released some amazing Roots music. Kicking off with 2 tracks form a Killer LP by Jah Warriors. Then an obscure 12” by A Pearson and an infectious LP track by Harlem Spirit followed by a heavy Carnastoan cut. 2 LP tracks by Reggae Regular then follow, again heavy as lead, UK stylee! Then a couple deep lover 12s by the Liberators and Keith Douglas. Next up a killer ‘Rise in the strength of Jah’ riddim feat Matic 16, paired with their mega classic ‘Jahovia’ on the outro, just after killer but obscure 12" on Lion Kingdom by I Benjahman & Earthman. Playlist soon come, but timestamp available.
