WILDLIFE! ROXY REBOOT ALBUM

WILDLIFE!_Roxy_Reboot

Swiss rudeboy Wildlife! releases his debut full length album on PHREE March 4th!

35 years ago, punk rock and reggae met at London’s legendary punk venue, The Roxy. Wildlife! revisits the kinship spawned from this brief but influential moment of music history, transferring it to his own era and sound for Roxy Reboot. He tracked down legendary figures from the UK’s late 70’s punk rock movement to reinterpret their favorite reggae classic, while simultaneously collaborating with the forefront of Jamaica’s dancehall avant-garde, to reinterpret influential punk classics and forgotten gems.

The album’s genre-defying sound refuses to linger on historical memories. Instead, Switzerland based Wildlife! pushed each contributing artist to leave their respective natural habitats and face a raw and stripped down sound as the backdrop to record to. His insistence while collaborating was not to bask in nostalgia but rather attempt to capture an original and contemporary musical snapshot of his own design. ”

“The alliance between punk and reggae was a genuine and a real one. Reggae was the music of rebellion and punk was the music of rebellion, so it was black and white working class culture showing some solidarity with each other.” – Linton Kwesi Johnson

Exploration #6 - London Pirate Radio

Nice documentary on London pirate radio over at palladiumboots.com.

The blurb sez:

Pirate radio is everywhere in London, born in the 60’s from rusting anti-aircraft towers in the mouth of the Thames. Today’s broadcasts are hidden in plain sight, transmitting from secret tower block studios via homemade rooftop antennas. We put our boots on and went exploring.
