Tonight in the Explorers Room: Songs of Blood and Fire
Tonight in the Explorers Room we'll be hearing a program of Jamaican music with revolutionary & polit(r)ic(k)al overtones, among other subjects of passion & righteousness. Lots of stuff by/produced by Lee Perry, Joe Gibbs, Keith Hudson, and Niney the Observer, from all-time, I-know-you-know-them full metal classics to dubplates, b-sides, and album tracks.
The current state of things dictates that we must listen to and learn from various resistance musics dating to earlier days – and other regions, geographically speaking – of the struggle; additionally, under even the most utopian imaginable circumstances, this music would be too good not to play. See you tonight, 7-10, in the usual room. Devils beware, you ha fe get a beaten.
