LOVE AND ROCKERS: interview Ted Bafaloukos

Last week MR T hooked me up with a very interesting interview: Ted Bafaloukos Taught Us Everything We Know About Jamaica,  on the Vice website here. Ted made the movie Rockers in the seventies, and it still holds as one of my favorite regae movies ever, read about how a Greek ended up 2 years in Jamaica. Also lots of cool picures; the one up here is Ted himself together with Horsemouth, and down here we Richard 'dirty' Hall smoking his herb.
