TRASH & READY presents:
NAVIGATOR (UNITY HI-FI) MEETS CHAMPIAN (JAMDOWN ROCKERS) INNA DANCEHALL STYLE!!!
FRIDAY 7TH MARCH
@ SILVER BULLET
5 STATION PLACE
FINSBURY PARK N4
GATE PRESSURE: £4
TRASH & READY returns for a one-off special in association with TUFF SCOUT featuring two UK Sound System legends in the form of the frankly awesome NAVIGATOR (UNITY HI-FI/FREESTYLERS) and the one-man-army himself ARMS HOUSE CHAMPIAN (JAMDOWN ROCKERS/TIGHTEN UP CREW)!!!
NAVIGATOR and CHAMPIAN exploded onto the scene in the golden age of the UK Sound System: When Sounds like Jamdown Rockers and Unity Hi-Fi were going head-to-head on a nightly basis with the likes of Fatman, Saxon, Taurus, Frontline, Killamanjaro and Sir Coxsone! Many MCs picked up the mic back-in-the-day to fine effect but only a handful achieved truly legendary status! We've got two of 'em tonight! Amazingly, these guys are as great as they were back when they were making history in the 80s and 90s - if not better!
Behind the decks THE TIGHTEN UP CREW will be joined by surprise special guests on a drop-in basis! We don't know who they are yet but we can confirm we'll be flinging down a guaranteed rewind selekshun of Old-School-Dancehall, Rough 'N' Rugged Rub-A-Dub, Dangerous Digital Pressure and The Tuffest Future Riddims for your bogling pleasure!
This is gonna be something very special indeed people!
TRASH & READY is presented in association with Tuff Scout and Out On The Floor Record Shop - purveyors of fine vinyl situated at 10 Inverness Street, NW1 7HJ London Borough of Camden Tel: 020 7485 9958
We have a new postcard we will be giving away free when you buy the Horace Andy album Get Wise direct from the Pressure Sounds store.
We now have 'Voodooism' vinyl back in stock. Been a while since its been available on vinyl.
Produced by Roy Cousins in the early 80s. Winston 'Flames' Jarrett recorded the 'Wise Man' album with Roy Cousins and both these versions are extended mixes of tracks taken from the album. Long unavailable and much sought after.
A re-cut of the Studio One song that was called 'Contemplating Mind' recorded by Barrington Spence for Mr Dodd. He re-cut this version for Phil Pratt in the early 70s. Phil Pratt's arrangement is less reliant on the keyboards of Jackie Mittoo and comes with a slower rhythm. The b side is 'Where your footsteps led'. Both sides are excellent soulful early 70s reggae.
An obscure Black Ark rarity that was produced by Phil Pratt at the Black Ark.
Two gorgeous early 70s vocal harmony tracks from The Tidals. Back to back with no dub version. Finely crafted vocals by a group who were very sparsely recorded. Producer Phil Pratt recorded their first ever record 'Rebel Nyah' and then recorded these 2 gems around 1973. Comes in a handmade Pressure Sounds stamped sleeve.
An excellent Delroy Wilson cover of the Marvin Gaye song 'Baby don't you do it'. Produced by Phil Pratt and originally released on the Sun Shot label. A difficult tune to find these days, never been re-pressed until now. Delroy Wilson sings over an incessant Phil Pratt rhythm with Bobby Kalphat keyboards to the front of the mix. Nice rhythmic flipside. An instrumental rather than a dub. Comes in a handmade Pressure Sounds stamped sleeve. A winner.
Killer ska tune that leaps out of the speakers and flys around the room. Catch it while its available. Busty Brown on the flipside with 'Pick Up The Pieces.
