U-Roy UK tour 2013 Don’t bother, you’ll come home disappointed. A Review.


Brighton 27th March 2013 U-Roy

Simple as this, Headlining on the promotional material, U-Roy was on the Mic in  2 and a half hour period for about 8 minutes.

Banditry. The promoter will be getting a letter from the trading standards authority telling them why a customer was desperately unhappy at the way in which he and many others were treated. General Trees and Little Twitch, who were not hardly highlighted on the poster for the gig, took the Mic and rocked the house for an extended period and did so with nuff style, some great tunes, well-selected and some fine toasting and boosting of a now non existent Stur Gav ‘Sound’, in my opinion a wallet of cds and a few self promoting specials by the likes of Blender and Coco Tea do not constitute a Jamaican Sound System, but I was prepared to let this one drop… not however the shit way the punters were treated by both promoter and U-Roy.

Daddy Roy, or Robber Roy as I think I’ll be referring to him from now could have taken the Mic at any point he so wished, and yet he preferred to stand with the selector, staring at an iPad for much of the gig, occasionally looking on with a wry smile. Probably thinking of the money he was raking in for doing…. urr… exactly zilch! Perhaps he was on eBay trying to buy up some of his rare back catalogue on auction.

Bandit Bizness by Promoter and Daddy Roy
Bandit Bizness by Promoter and Daddy Roy

Truly shameful performance by someone I once had a great deal of respect for. This was an example of something I’ve seen before and yet another occasion where ‘white bwoy a follower’ stand and listen to supposedly roots and culture artistes tell them about all about one love, unity, peace and love and equality while having their wallets washed out by people who don’t live what they preach and teach.

Shame on you.

MEK IT RUN Dennis Bovell, fresh Dub from Pressure Sounds


MEK IT RUN

New Dennis Bovell Dub set,… freshly, from Pressure Sounds, Check it…

Just sent the promo for the latest upcoming Pressure Sounds release, and lovin’ it, lovin’ it, lovin’ it.. Dennis Bovell is a Dubster almighty, ignore at your aural peril… simple as.. currently rinsing my ears out on the way to work and the way back home..

An excerpt from the upcoming releases liner notes…

Following recent neck surgery Dennis Bovell was under heavy medical discipline, amongstother restrictions there was to be strictly no playing of the bass. Now, more than any musician,the bass player has an almost physical connection to his chosen instrument, umbilical even,so the prospect of no vibration sensation was going to be difficult to deal with for therecovering Dennis. Not one to let such news impede his onward path Dennis came up with theidea of returning to unfinished work in an attempt to distract attention from his enforced low-end bass cold turkey.

Down in his musical lock-up lay a stack of boxes containing old 2 inch multi-track analogue master tapes, some dating back to the late seventies; Dennis selected some likely looking titles that never had dub treatment and arranged some time in Neil Fraser’s(the Mad Professor)studio as he knew the Prof had every gadget under the sun, there he”baked”tapes ready for digital conversion via an Alesis HD24 a 24 track, 48kHz hard diskrecorder rescuing the sounds from an inevitable oxidisation process that comes with age. At the mixing end Dennis utilises a whole range of outboard gear from old analogue to the latestdigital sets, explaining the unique and separate end sounds of the dubs presented on thealbum.

Of the twenty odd tunes recovered, sixteen are featured on this set, like dubbing on a digiOuija-board they date from the late seventies through the mid eighties. It was at this time thatdeejay of the day I Roy had first come to the UK to tour, and like all visiting Jamaican stars hepicked up a local band, it just happened to be Matumbi led by the young Dennis Bovell whospent most of his time between the ages of 19 and 25 working with that most intelligent andprolific of toasters. He even recalls I Roy’s first UK appearance being double booked sold outdates at both Battersea and Action Town Halls! Of course, the pair went on to record the albumWhap’n Bap’n together for Virgin, an early reggae rap set that the deejay insisted appear underhis real name Roy Reid, lest his roots credentials were impaired.
