Whilst not a fan of rap music, 'White Lines (don't do it)' will always be a classic track for me.

Couldn't agree more, im no fan of rap, but this was a classic.
It was grandmaster flash wasn't it ?

A bit too commercial for me Image

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.

Pop will eat itself. Carter USM. Do they count as rap music?

I 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.

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 )
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.
