    Flying VipersThe Gorgon Strikes BackHappy People

    The new Happy People Records ltd. edition 7" series comes from... the Flying Vipers from Boston, Mass with two brand new, world-beating heavyweight dubs! You can't argue with Flea Market Funk when they cited Flying Vipers 2020 debut album - 'Cuttings' as "one of the top reggae records of the year". Recorded and mixed entirely on an antiquated 4-track cassette recorder, it possesses the same rawness, authenticity and grit that dub first used to seduce the world in the 1970's. Two cuts from said album have now been given extra heavy treatment by Dub Fader (10 Ft. Ganja Plant); one a soaring tribute to Bunny Lee, 'The Gorgon Strikes Back', and the flip-side, the ethio-jazz nodding 'Fermented Herbs'. All numbered limited edition of 232 and pressed on HEAVYWEIGHT vinyl.

    Cornell CampbellHold OnSkankin' Society

    The Gorgon in fine style! Back in 2017, Cornell Campbell teamed up with The 18th Parallel to put out the beautiful ‘Lovely Feeling’, a roots reggae 7” reminiscent of Randy’s early 70s sound. A few months later, Cornell and the Swiss band went back in studio to pay another tribute to the Jamaican sound of the 70s. Do you remember ‘Dance in A Greenwich Farm’ or ‘Two Face Rasta’ ? Kingston, 1975. Bunny Lee’s flying cymbals riddims mixed by King Tubby and his big knob, Cornell Campbell’s golden years.
    Led by legendary drummer Leroy “Horsemouth” Wallace, The 18th Parallel tried to dive deep into the reggae of 1975 to bring back this feeling on ‘HOLD ON’: flying riddim, choping guitar, heavy filter mix by Roberto Sánchez and the one and only Cornell Campbell himself behind the microphone. Flash it!
