1 - ROOTS RADICS
- DUBBING AT CHANNEL 1 - (LP)
As the 1970s turned into the 1980s Reggaes beat took another turn,slowing down to allow more space for the music to breathe.The new sound became Reggaes focus and the Roots Radics one of Jamaicas finest session/backing bands were at the forefront of this radical change. The Roots Radics were based around the nucleus of ErrolFlabbaHolt(bass),Lincoln Valentine Style Scott(drums) and Eric Bingi BunnyLamont(guitar). Holt and Bingi Bunny had previously been involved in the Morwells label set up and had cut some popular tunes such as Swine and Dine,They Hold Us Down and the great Kingston Twelve Tuffy. Before this Bunny had played for one of the other great Reggae sessions band the Channel One based Revolutionaires. It was the demise of this legendary band due to Sly and Robbies commitments to their own Taxi label that led to the formation of the Roots Radics.The Radics have worked with many different producers over the years including Linval Thompson with the series of alums Space Invaders Destroy the World and Win the World Cup.They also worked as Gregory Isaacs backing band and were responsible for the rhythms that made up his seminal Night Nurse set.We have caught the Roots Radics for this set cutting rhythms in their favourite environment the famous Channel One Studios.On this occasion working with producer Ossie Thomasfor his own Black Solidarity label,a match made in Heaven.
