I preferred The Message. Now that was a classic..

As i recall it was not called rap music back then but called Electro or something like that, the days of break dancing.
A quote from John Lydon "Reggae is done very nice and done well by Jamaicans - that's their culture and their voice, and done with political opinion, and it ain't for whitey to think he can move in on it and steal it " ( Oral History of Punk - John Robb ) - THIS is what I mean really when I go on about UB**. Though I love most punk music , the Ruts sort of passed me by other than the odd hit single ( Babylon )droopsnoot wrote: ↑11 May 2017, 10:54I don't think I'm being racist when I agree with Jon about the guy in UB40 who clearly has a broad Birmingham accent when he talks, and suddenly adopts a broad Jamaican one when he sings. And - shock horror - much as I enjoyed their other stuff, you can add the guy from Ruts DC into that as well - south London or thereabouts accent when talking, suddenly from Jamaica when doing their reggae stuff. I just pictured one of them walking into a bar in Kingston (Jamaica, not Surrey) and putting that accent on to order a beer, I suspect it would be like the scene in that Eddie Murphy film where he takes Jackie Chan to his local bar.
All quiet ..........
Same for me, though when I saw them at the gigs earlier in the year it turned out I knew more of their songs that I'd realised. But my musical listening is quite narrow.
