This is not an easy question for me. I have been a huge reggae fan for nearly 30 years now. That is all I listen to. :grin:

1) "Old School"
Bob, Ziggy, Peter Tosh, Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown, Third World, Midnite, Culture, Burning Spear, Jimmy Cliff, Steel Pulse, Mighty Diamonds, Sugar Minott, Toots and the Maytals, Beres Hammond, Garnett Silk, Freddie McGregor, Black Uhuru, Maxi Priest, etc.

2) "New breed"
Luciano, Morgan Heritage, Nasio Fontaine, Julian Marley, Kymani Marley, Damian Marley, Glen Washington, Bushman, Abijah, Gentleman.

3) USA reggae bands
Soldiers of Jah Army (SOJA), Groundation, Joseph Israel, Mutti Lewis, Anthem, John Brown's Body, etc.

I would say that Luciano and Morgan Heritage are my favorites lately though.

Did I mention that I love reggae music? :grin:

I grew up in NW London and used to walk to Harlesden from Cricklewood via Neasden and the TROJAN studios!!! My interest in the music was a passion even at an early age. Even won an award in school for documenting a history of reggae from early 60's Rand B crossover to ska up to 1971 (when I wrote it aged 11). I remember writing after doing a lot of research that a drummer called Drumbago invented the beat. On doing research these days I cant find any info on Drumbago. Anyone else heard of this????

I listen to as much reggae as I can get...whoever it's by.

P.S these f ing pop up things are pissin me off. Must have been 20 interupting my writing....doh!!

Sounds excellent, your bit of written work Deuce.................that's my territory too.

Bit of a coincidence you're called Deuce, as there's this great track by Arkland "Drumbago" Parkes called Deucemania (or is it Dulciemania? :rolleyes: )........really nice instrumental from the late 60's............He plays a beat that to me sounds very modern, reggae yes, but similar to what you hear in r & b today (most of which i have to say is as throw-away as unwanted junk food :bigwink: )

He drummed for the Skatalites and some of the rocksteady session bands. A lot of the beats that people like he and Skatalite's Llloyd Nibbs "fathered" definitely formed the basis of what all reggae drummers would play later.........there is a massive influence of ska drumming in Sly Dunbar's work- and did u see Jimmy playing along to "Simmer Down" on that South Bank Show prog?

Arkland.... now I know I didn't just imagine it as some people were telling me I was!!. The Skatalites drummer makes sense. I'm Deuce as I drive a Hot Rod Deuce Coupe. lol.

Another story from my youth!! Remember Dave and Ansil Collins? You could ring their home phone number and listen to there latest single. Hows that for ahead of it's time.

There was also, if I remember right, Creole records (or something beginning with C)in Harlesden with a studio in the basement and quite often reggae artists hanging around outside....Also Greensleeves. Happy days!!

Hi Deuece, yes, I remember Double Barrel/Monkey Spanner, two of my all time faves.........that WAS ahead of its time! :grin: Remember "Dial-a-disc"?.......always used to miff me that there was never any reggae or ska on it :rolleyes:

I also remember buying Aswad's Warrior Charge on 12" when I was still at school and feeling I was in on something that practically no-one elese at school was. Great Days Indeed! :beer:

Deuce
29th March 2006, 07:31 PM
Yey. I got Warrior Charge on 12" as well. There are so many versions of that tune. But that's my fave. With Dub Charge on the B side.
