Black Roots

Black Roots were a powerful and potent force in the British reggae music scene throughout the Eighties and left a legacy of no less than ten albums and more than eight singles before bowing out of the public eye in the mid-90's. Hailing from the St Paul's area of Bristol, the original eight-member band were formed in 1979 and quickly gained a large following by touring almost non-stop around the country, playing their brand of 'militant pacifism' roots reggae in the nation's major colleges, universities and festivals.

The Drastics

Chicago Dub Massive!
http://www.thedrastics.com Hailing from Chicago, The Drastics bring a distinctive edge to their take on reggae and dub. The band started out as a strictly instrumental act showcasing exotic winding melodies on strange instruments and live dub effects in the vein of the classic producers. After some early lineup changes, the foundation of the band became the rhythm machine of drummer/producer Anthony Abbinanti and bassist Chris Merrill. They have since added vocalists Fada Dougou and MC Zulu to the mix, broadening the band's already deep musical range.
