Went to the Creation Rebel reunion gig at the jazz café this weekend.... Great show, and hope they get back on the road.
..probably would be that bit better with a dedicated vocalist, though who could compare to Prince Far-I.

Also on the bill was UK comedian Vic Reeves who played a sweet reggae set, heavy on the Perry and Bunny Wailer selection.. He seems a genuine fan.

Nice to see Adrian going strong and still with a lot of enthusiasm and new material

I am after one ID though, most likely one of his productions...
Lyrics as best as I remember them had a chorus with a socialist message about "every man for himself" and how it shouldn't be every man for himself...not much to go on, but if you know it you'll know it!

Creation rebel gig was tuff. Shame gig was so short but band were tight. Amazing to hear them sound so good after 34 years. Would be great to see them with a vocalist. Not so mad on Sherwood's dj set but Vic reeves entertained. Had no idea he was into reggae

I gather Vic made his name doing cabaret around the squaty scene of new cross and deptford in the mid 80s so i can imagine him being of that On U generation.

That's "Every Man For Every Man", the title track from Ghetto Priest's new album

That's very cheap postage, it's normally at least 9 pounds for an LP to North America.

while awaiting arrival of the vinyl I ordered up an mp3 version from amazon last night. Cannot say as I am super impressed, but his other stuff, like vulture culture, had to grow on me a bit. have heard or have a couple of these tracks already, in different version I think, but overall its kind of a soft release. Like I said it will probably grow on me, listened to it again today and starting to work.

while I was checking the mp3s though I was reminded that one of dougie conscious' singles compilations featured ghetto priest, so I ordered that up too. great stuff, remixes or different versions from the beyond flesh release but same songs. also picked up league of nations from another singles compilation, I dig this track and will have to get the entire set. also found a great track by GP and Brother Culture called Willing and Able, and a somewhat lesser one, Passing Through with Shanty Band.

that caught me up on my ghetto priest I guess.

great to see that Adrian is still working with him and putting out excellent stuff.

one love

Have listened to the GP album a few times now, and I was right: it grew on me. Good to see AMS hasn't lost his touch and is still producing excellent artists like the Priest. If anyone out there knows the man (GP) tell him I say so.

I very much enjoyed the album but was surprised to see - and surprised that it wasn't mentioned in any of the reviews or other online chatter that I've seen - that there aren't any original Ghetto Priest-penned tunes on there. So there's eight cover versions (if you can class his version of the Robbie Burns' work "I Murder Hate" - my favourite tune on the album - as a cover version?), and two others written for him by others

It does go together very well as a set though, so I'm not complaining
