I have 'Brain Damage' on vinyl, and it's still a remarkable album. If I didn't have any other vinyl records I'd keep a turntable just to play this one alone! Thanks for this. I will relish them in their flac glory. Post a Comment. Feb 19, RhoDeo Roots. Hello, These past months we traversed the UK dubscene, but before all that there were a few UK bands bringing reggae to the island, obviously they found their lead in Jamaica who's first big stars came to the british shores in the mid seventies.
As we near the end of our tour of the UK reggae scene one man has thusfar been absent, well not any more. Dennis Bovell's influence on '70s U. He was central to the development of British reggae as Higher Ranking D distinct sound, both with his group Matumbi, and as a producer, and the kind of dub and instrumental excursions on Decibel: More Cuts From Dennis Bovell laid the foundation for Adrian Maxwell Sherwood and Mad Professor to emerge ANAZANAUT - sampler the '80s.

Bovell moved with his family to South London at the age of twelve. He became immersed in Higher Ranking D culture, particularly dub music, and set up his own Jah Sufferer sound system. Running the sound system brought trouble from the police and Bovell was imprisoned for six months on remand, but was later released on appeal. Bovell was friends at school with future rock musicians including keyboardist Nick Straker and record producer Tony Mansfield New Musikboth of whom later worked with Bovell.
Bovell also worked as an engineer at Dip Records, the precursor to the Lovers Rock label, and he was a key figure in the early days of the lovers rock genre. He is also known for attempting to fuse disco rhythms with reggae, most notably with the hit song "Silly Games" by Janet Kay.
As Blackbeard, Bovell released Strictly Dub Wize in ; he quickly became involved in production work for experimental post-punkers like the Slits and the Pop Group. Bovell spent the early '80s working with artists like Linton Kwesi Johnson and Alpha Blondy; he returned with Higher Ranking D mostly straight reggae album inAudio Active, recorded with a group tagged the Dub Band.

Inthey opened for The Wailers at the Ethiopian famine relief concert in Edmonton, where much to their emabarrassment they went down better than the headliners, Bovell later saying "The press thought we were much better, and we felt terrible because they were our heroes.
Success brought problems for the band, with their record label unhappy about some band members other musical activities, and Bailey and Dixon left, to be replaced by Webster Johnson keyboards. The group's debut album, Seven Seals, was issued inbut their second album, Point of View, was a greater success, with the title track giving the band a top 40 hit in Further albums followed between andbut these did not match their earlier success.
The band split up, with members moving on to various other projects; Bovell released solo material and became renowned as a producer, Donaldson joined The Cimarons, and Fagan and Blake recorded Charles Aznavour - Aznavour Sings Aznavour Vol.I The Squad.
