Video: the Punky Reggae Party

Dubroom (DUB) Reggae Video Review

WWW, September 2007 - In almost 6 minutes, we're being introduced to a phenomenon that took place in the late 1970's when both Punk and Reggae came together to celebrate their common goal of chanting down Babylon.

It was called the "Punky Reggae Party" and Bob Marley wrote a tune about it which was released in 1977. This small documentary opens up with a few minutes of the tune.

After that, we're being shown a number of sights and sounds of a combination that many people thought was kind of strange, but who feels it knows it.

We'll see Linton Kwesie Johnson explaining some things, too. He was involved in this social movement big-time, too, being a Dub Poet chanting about truths and rights.

Just a bit of history, you know...

For the Punky Reggae Party goes on in every generation.
