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.
Storming big band ska from Granville Williams with 'Wailin'. 'Old McDonald' is actually excellent as well.
Rousing Maytals call and response on the A side with 'My Daily Food' and "One Look' on the flipside. Classic Maytals.
Two slices of Jamaican big band jazz. Glen Millers 'String of Pearls' on the A side. The Anton Karas composition on the flipside from the movie 'The Third Man'. Great stuff.
On the A side 'Take these chains from my heart' has more than a nod to the Hank Williams classic of the same name. Has a lovely harmonica half way through.
'I Am Blue' on the flipside is pretty good.
Freddie McGregors classic Studio One set. Re-pressed in Jamaica at Studio One with the original stampers. Sleeve is also a re-print from the original so it has the characteristics of A Jamaican sleeve. Its new but looks slightly worn in places.
The Cables led by Keble Drummond at their Studio One best. Great album. Recently repressed in Jamaica by Studio one. The sleeves have also been made in Jamaican so has some slight wear evident around the edges of the sleeve. Although it does say on the back sleeve that it was made in the UK!! Check the sound clips for sound quality before you buy. Overall its pretty good in terms of sound.
