It's been awhile since I've posted to my blog, but I blame Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
. I'd pretend it's ruining my life, but I love playing it far too much to even make such a suggestion. On a music related note, K-Jah West is definitely my favourite station to drive around to, which will cause me to start buying up more reggae/dub music in the near future. Having said that, being chased by the cops with G'N'R's "Welcome To The Jungle" was definitely a highlight of my year.
On a dub note, I highly highly recommend Lee Perry & The Upsetters' double disc Dub-Triptych
that just came out on Trojan. This package features Cloak & Dagger
(plus three bonus tracks), Black Board Jungle Dub
and Revolution Dub
. I'm still learning about Perry and dub/reggae in general, but this thread
suggests that some reissues of Black Board Jungle Dub have been dodgy in the past. However, my understanding is that Trojan has released the original version on this new compilation.
