Thoughts on this dub poet from the 80s? Where is he today? How do you rate him against LKJ or other poets?

One classic album, some dead boring (esp. on US labels) a few sparse good tunes here and there as a featured artist. Some strange lyrics and some strange litterature on sale at his stall in Kingston. LKJ is the best dub poet, alongside Michael Smith, Benjamin Zephaniah(who can also be strange at time). Yasus Afari and DYCR have some good tunes too. A man like Brother Resistance (rapso artist from Trinidad) is a consistently good dub poet.

Not a huge fan, but when he's good he's very good. "Garvey" and "Dis Poem" are both massive.
