The New Age Steppers – Self Titled
Virgin, Statik, On-U Sound 1981

Let’s do some more phat back dub reggae related 80’s stuff
from Adrian Sherwood’s On-U Sound label. This is the first
album with the New Age Steppers. It opens with the 1975,
Junior Byles hit ‘Fade Away’ in a complete different outfit.
Sherwoods incredible and freaky effects take us on a journey
beyond the imaginable, I simply love it. I am quite sure I had
posted this album in 2014 but somehow it disappeared on us.
Early On-U Sound work from 1981, not to be missed ..

Laten we nog eens zo’n dikke dub reggae gerelateerde 80er
jaren plaat doen van Adrian Sherwood’s On-U Sound label.
Dit is de eerste New Age Steppers. Hij opent met de 1975
klassieker ‘Fade Away’ van Junior Byles in een compleet
nieuw jasje. Sherwood’s ongelooflijk woeste dub effecten
nemen ons mee op een reis voorbij het voorstelbare, ik
ben er simpelweg dol op. Vrij zeker weet ik dat deze plaat
al in 2014 gepost was, hij bleek echter verdwenen. Vroeg
On-U Sound werk dat niet gemist mag worden ..

To Scratch That Itch, Roots, Rock and Rhythm
Various Artists, Luaka Bop 1991

When the weather is changing and fall drops in on us, I always tend
to start playing more popmusic. Atmospheric stuff with lots of variety.
Something quite else is this cd on the prestigious Luaka Bop label of
David Byrne. His selections are outstanding and surprising. This album
is from 1991, already 28 years of age but feels like yesterday. Mr. Byrne
treats us with music from the UK, Brazil, the US and Cuba. A nice bunch
of songs in different styles and moods, listen ..

P.S. I discovered one strange mistake, track #9 is not Agepê as written
on the cd’s cover. It is Martinho da Vila with Claustrofobia.

Als het weer omslaat en de herfst zijn onstuimige intrede maakt, neig ik
steeds vaker naar popmuziek. Atmosferische mengeling van stijlen en
stemmingen. Iets tamelijk anders dan wat je hier gewend bent is dit. Op
het prestgieuze Luaka Bop label van David Byrne komt deze bonte ver-
zameling tracks die stammen uit het Verenigd Koninkrijk, Brazilië, de USA
en Cuba. Het gaat van links naar rechts en andersom, luister ..

P.S. Ik ontdekte een vreemde fout, track #9 is niet Agepê zoals de
cd omslag vermeldt. Het is Martinho da Vila met Claustrofobia.

Time Boom X De Devil Dead
On-U Sound Records / EMI 1987

Taking a step forward to the late eighties period in London
with On-U Sound producer Adrian Sherwood we’ve got this
Time Boom X De Devil Dead. Quite a different feeling from
the old Black Ark sound. Still, typical Perry madness ..

We springen een eind voorwaarts in de geschiedenis met deze
Time Boom X De Devil Deaduit zijn latere jaren 80 Londen pe-
riode met de On-U Sound producer Adrian Sherwood. Tamelijk
ander geluid dan de vroegere Black Ark tijd maar
nog altijd de typische Perry gekte ..

New Age Steppers – Action Battlefield
Statik / On-U Sound 1981

new-age-steppers-front

This is something special and different. Another On-U Sound product
from the Adrian Sherwood school. Singer Ari and her crew bring this
reggae like experimental dub sound with a lot of emotion and devotion.
You love it or you hate it, I absolutely belong to the first group.
What do you think..?

Ja mensen, dit is eens iets totaal anders. Nog zo’n On-U Sound produkt
van de Adrian Sherwood stal. Zangeres Ari en haar ploeg brengen deze
reggae gebaseerde experimentele dub sound met veel emotie en overgave.
Je vindt het geweldig of je vindt het niets, ik behoor absoluut tot de eerste van
de twee groepen. Wat denk jij ervan ..?

01 – My whole world

Singers & Players – War of Words
99 Records 1981

singers-players-front

singers-players-back

Early eighties we were completely captured by the sound
created by Adrian Sherwood and his On-U sound. The LP
we have here is on 99 Records however but related to On-U.
A bunch of Jamaican artists working in England. 99 Records
was New York Based but if I’m correct the recordings were
made in the UK. Anyway, wonderful music, enjoy listening.
Incredible amd impressive Style Scott drumming..

In de vroege jaren tachtig waren we volledig gegrepen door
de sound van Adrian Sherwood en zijn On-U Sound label. Deze
plaat hoort daar eigenlijk ook bij maar kwam uit op 99 Records,
een New York zuster label. Een zwik getalenteerde Jamaicanen
die in Engeland actief waren werkte samen met Mr. Sherwood
aan deze indrukwekkende serie platen, luister en huiver.
Zwaar indrukwekkende drum capriolen van Style Scott..

tracks ;

01 – Devious woman
02 – Quanté jubila
03 – Sit and wonder
04 – Fit to survive
05 – Reaching the bad man

Mark Stewart + Maffia
Learning to Cope with Cowardice
Plexus / On-U Sound 1983

mark-stewart-maffia-front

mark-stewart-maffia-back

Tegenwoordig schrikken we niet zo snel meer, toen dit uitkwam,
in 1983 echter, waren we wel ietwat overdonderd. Tamelijk expi-
rimentele sound van Mark Stewart and Maffia. Nog zo’n Adrian
Sherwood produktie waar de stukken vanaf springen. Het is nu
ondertussen pure cult geworden, vet goed geluid, luister zelf.
De laatste track is juist weer aktueel geworden,
dank je Trump..

Nowadays we don’t get shocked that easy anymore, when this
came out in 1983 however, it was rather overwhelming. Quite
experimental sound by Mark Stewart and Maffia. Another Adrian
Sherwood production, violently good stuff. It became a pure
cult record in the mean time, awesome good sound, listen.
The final track just became relevant again, thanx Trump..

tracks ;

01 – learning to cope with cowardice
02 – Liberty city
03 – Blessed are those who struggle
04 – None dare call it conspiracy
05 – Don’t you ever lay down your arms

07 – To have the vision

Raymond Naptali – Trouble Possee
CSA Records 1982

raymond-naptali-front

raymond-naptali-coloured-vinyl

Ik heb al eens twee van deze nummers gebruikt op m’n Reggae Monster
Originals compilaties. Uiteindelijk was het tijd de hele plaat uit 1982 eens
te plaatsen. Voor een artiest van zijn formaat is hij altijd tamelijk onbekend
gebleven. Tien toffe tracks op geel gekleurd vinyl van CSA Records die zeker
enkele omwentelingen waard zijn. geproduceerd door Fatman..

My old Reggae Monster Originals compilations already contained two of
these tracks. Eventually I think it was about time to post the whole album.
For an artist of his quality he never became really famous. Ten decent
songs on yellow vinyl from CSA Records certainly worth a couple of spins.
produced by Fatman..

01 – Automatic boom

the Animals – Animalisms
Decca 1966

animals-front

p2120048

Toen ik vanmorgen opstond zag de wereld er heel anders uit.
Misschien een mooi moment om ook eens heel andere muziek
te luisteren. Europees weer, Europese sound erbij. Eric Burdon
en de Animals met een plaat uit 1966, ja echt alweer 51 jaar oud
maar nog steeds prima te beluisteren is deze Animalisms, check..

When I woke up this morning the world looked competely different.
Maybe a good moment to post and listen some completely different
music for a change. European weather, European sound to go with it.
Eric Burdon and the Animals with an album from 1966. Yes it is 51 yrs.
old but still very nice to listen to. Check out these Animalisms now..

The Mothmen – Pay Attention !
On-U Sound lp2, 1981

the Mothmen, front

Pay Attention !

Quite some time ago, when I still made ‘Ramdog’s Rough Site’,
I posted this album. Thought I already moved it to the GG but I
guess I didn’t. This is the second lp on the great On-U Sound label
and I have always liked it a lot. Typical 80’s UK sound, experimental
stuff, reggae, punk and popmusic merged into this brandnew sound..

1 Afghan farmer driving cattle/Animal animaux
2 Not moving
