Mad Professor – Tricks In The Mix 1999

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

Again thanks to The Dubologist for this recording, I believe from the same Wetlands show as the Lee Scratch Perry previously posted – 6/14/99. It’s a monster session with Neil throwing in dub, techno, jungle, and anything else he can lay his hands on!

Rebel Rockers – Live 1983

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

When I arrived on the West Coast in mid-1983 I knew practically nobody except Zed Records and Roger Steffens. Steffens introduced me to Blue Riddim, who were on tour, and they in turn introduced me to the Rebel Rockers of Laguna Beach, who kindly took me in as a guest. Also staying in their house at the time happened to be Darryl and Doc from the Bad Brains, which started a long and fruitful friendship..

The Rebel Rockers themselves, in a marked contrast to the ‘cool and deadly’ style to which I was accustomed in the UK, played high energy SoCal skanking music, predating illustrious followers like Sublime and No Doubt. Powered by Redz on bass, they were fronted by the lively, and lovely, Princess on vocals. The guitarist, who’s name I forget, brought a distinct latin tinge to the proceedings, and when, on one notable occasion I accompanied them to a show with the Circle Jerks in Tijuana, they raised the roof! The band is still going and can be found on myspace.

Somehow I have retained a cassette of a set I recorded at one of their shows and here, for your delectation, and posterity, it is:

Lee Scratch Perry – Wetlands – 6-14-99

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

Here is another contribution to Streamola programming from The Dubologist – a board recording of Lee Perry playing Wetlands in NYC in June 99. While Lee has toured with some regularity in the last few years he was still a rare and exotic specimen at this time. I’m guessing Dubo was DJ-ing the show and that’s how he came by the tape.  Can we identify the backing band? Mad Professor & The Robotiks?

Andrew Tosh in Brazil

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

At the Streamola studio we were occasionally honored by a visit from Andrew Tosh. In 2000 I was fortunate to be able to program a board recording of a recent show in Brazil. A fine performance that truly shows that musical talent was passed from father to son.
