By way of recommendation, if any of you have been listening to the tunes that Roots Garden have being playing over the last few months on the Upstir Records label, they are selling them from there web site; some early bird thing before full release.

All are killa but the Ken Booth & blood Seed is top draw, (also a great You tube video).

If any of you have been checking the couple of 7”s by the Frighnrs, they have an LP out & its killa! “Nothing More To Say”.

Bizarley I’ve not seen it in any of the usual Reggae retailers, not sure how distribution works!
I stumbled on it by accident and secured a copy from Rough Trade in Brick Lane.

Highly Recommended
Cheers

Yes, the Upstir 7"s are way cool, especially Binghi Colin and Ken Boothe - His best tune since : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fS-vp9pqicg

As for THe Frightnrs, well, it's hardly surprising that many usual reggae retailers don't stocktheir LP, as this band is affiliated with Daptone, a soul label, and, in general with the ska scene of the US east coast. To put it mildly, i wouldn't really say that curiosity and open-mindedness are the order of the day amongst most reggae scenesters.
Already seen a number of them giving some flak to The Frightnrs for not very convincing reasons : possibly not cliqueish enough, not "black" enough, too this or too that...
Funnily enough, such people went on lauding artists who, in my book, are paragons of conformity and genericness today.
A very soulful artist i've been following recently is Nichola Richards, from London. She also sings with German soul-funk act The Mighty Mocambos and is also involved in a forthcoming album full of soul music covers inna reggae style: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdRlzb3gLk8
Also a great cover of Sugarpie Desanto by her on Horus Records' new Showcase Vol 3 LP !

I think the Frightnrs album is probably the best set I've heard this year.
