Brilliant, haughty Jamaican avant-gardism, inspired by Jammy's Sleng Teng explosion!

Presented as a next-generation companion to 'London Is The Place For Me' the mood is more defiant — a Jamaican secession from London — with themes of inner-city sufferation running alongside hymns to the dancehall and the herb superb.

With a forty-page booklet including a long interview with soundsystem- and label-boss Ribs, and many photographs. Brilliantly mastered by Moritz from Basic Channel.

Recommended!
