4 Hour Steve Barrow Interview on Big Mikey Dread show

Steve Barrow has been pushing Jamaican music since 1962, check out this very interesting interview on the Big Mikey Dread radioblog. His writings and compilation work always have been an inspiration to us.  Steve talks about his passion, the music business, the labels and the artists in his home, while he puts on 45s from his own collection. Check Part 1 here and Part 2 over here.

From Mikey's blog: Over the years Steve's interest in Jamaican music has developed from collecting through to writing for Black Echoes, running his own record stores, compiling records for Island, Trojan, and his own label Blood and Fire records. He co-wrote the Rough Guide To Reggae, a bible for all Jamaican music fans. Amongst his close friends are people like Bunny Lee, Dennis Alcapone, Glen Brown, Lopez Walker, U-Roy and Trinity. He's even recorded a toilet for Lee 'Scratch' Perry! He's currently writing sleeve notes for Soul Jazz records and an upcoming release of some Dancehall Reggae music, related to Beth Kingston's book 'Dancehall' that Soul Jazz brought out last year.
Big Up Big Mikey D. for making this show!

Reggae on the Uncarved Blog

Our friend Mr T pointed me to the excellent Uncarved blog some years ago, and I've always had great pleasure and fun reading (lots of reggae!) John Eden's virtual infotainment. Last week, some interesting posts dropped: The 20 Best Reggae 45s of the Noughties Part 1 & Part 2 and the hilarious 10 Worst Things about Reggae in The Noughties. Check out the blog!

It was epic!
Thanks again to everybody that showed up, wanted to show up, tried to show up, showed up without knowing and had a good time, showed up with intent and had a good time, showed up to hate but had a good time etc etc etc > Without you we'd be nowhere.
Much love!

R.I.P. Vivian Jackson aka Yabby You

Last tuesday, january 12, one of the most important artist in the history of reggae passed away. Vivian Jackson, better know as Yabby You, created some of the heaviest roots around, filled with spirituality, creating a massive following among reggae lovers. His masterpiece Conquering Lion (released in 1976 on the Prophet label) is a must-have, just like King Tubby's Prophecy of Dub and the Jesus Dread compilation on the Blood & Fire label. Big up Mr Jackson, may YOU rest in peace....................
