    Michael Rose Obserb Life

    Dug Out

    • 1. obserb life
    • 2. obserbing dub (upsetters)

    Raw, stripped funk from the Black Ark, charged with atmosphere and aura. Done over as Zen tutelage, no doubt inspired by Rose's spar Niney, this is the Final Weapon rhythm — that signature cowbell, tough, scrubby guitar, bass bubbling deep in the pocket, and the Upsetter mixing live on the spot.

    Adrian Sherwood revisited the song with Ari Up — but here is the hortical piece.
