I can't believe I forgot to mention Maka B (not sure of spelling) who is vegan of course. There was an article in the Vegan Society magazine about him. I've not really heard any of his music but he seems like a really nice guy.

Benjamin Zephania too, I've got an old dub/poetry album of his that is pretty good.

i assume that many of the original guard wouldn't be homophobes - the nature of reggae, dub then was peace, harmony and equality.

i've heard macka b is playing at the brighton vegan fayre organised by yaoh next year, pretty good follow up to misty in roots and azwad in bristol this year, that reggae theme is quality, apparently macka b is a vegan and just released a song called 'what me eat'.

[quote="xzebrasx"]Yo, I'll check that out, x.

I would recommend:

Suicide Bid (dub, punk, reggae, ska)
Inner Terrestrials (ska, punk, reggae, dub)
Leftöver Crack (skacore, punk, crack rock steady)
Choking Victim (also)
Public Serpents (punk, reggae, ska)
The Infested (skacore, punk)
The Mad Conductor (ska, funk, reggae, hip-hop)
Antimaniax (skacore)
Capdown (also)
Cranston Foundation (reggae, -core)
General Rudie (ska)
No-Ca$h (skacore)
P.A.I.N. (ska, punk, reggae, dub)
Paprika Korps (reggae from Poland)
The Dumpers (punk, ska, -core)

Not "pure" reggae, dub or dancehall, but something I like very much, anyway.


Mate you are so singing from the same hymnsheet as me on this one, particularly in the case of the ITs, PAIN, Leftover/Choking & Antimaniax. i also put on Mad Conductor last time they were over in the UK.

On this basis I would have to recommend a couple of more underground bands in the UK at the moment who are beginning to make waves, namely JAKAL (listen to "Junkyard"), DIRTY REVOLUTION (listen to "I Love Reggae"), THE AUTONOMADS (listen to "Dubbin Up The Downfall") and THE APOSTATES (listen to "Same Old Sound").

Hope u like!
