    Default Bob Marley.

    just heard Bob coming out a car. sounded joyful. reminded me he is the least fashionable artist and has been for as long as i can remember.




    legend.

    in 1997-98 there were two reggae djs on 'community radio', bobo el numero uno and his mate whos name ive forgotten and their thing was "a Marley a day keeps the Dr away" so they started every show with a Marley record. it was great. i listened to them religiously.

    A mate of mine did a Wailers special on his radio show last week. It's all killer: https://www.mixcloud.com/maharishi-h...ckfmnet-13518/ I know for him Marley was the entry drug to lifetime's obsession.

    do you remember when Sizzla kicked the living shit out of Beenie Man (i think it might have been in an airport in Germany) for saying he was bigger than Bob Marley?

    He's been around for a bit - maybe seen him on my Facebook? Him and a mate have been doing Revive nights for a few years, on and off.

    What I like about this show is you can here the later Marley implicit in all the old stuff. It makes all kinda links, grounation drumming in the first track for instance. You read A Brief History of Seven Killings, Luka? I really enjoyed it. Seems somehow weird in terms of canon when Marley goes literary.

    Having a work of "serious" literature produced about him (or around him) indicates a certain middle-classification which I am contributing to by mentioning it.
