DUBROOM MP4 REVIEW
WWW, May 2008 - Bob Marley's track "Punky Reggae Party" officially recognized a connection that Babylon didn't like at all: In Europe, the Punk Movement teamed up with the Rastafari Movement in a joint effort to chant down Babylon.
As the Hippie Movement turned out to be nothing but another way of enjoying the system, another movement was born and the name was Punk.
No more "peace and love", please, for that was only another word to describe fascism. Words like "No Future" popped up, and singers like Peter Tosh pointed out to the fact that all of this had to do with truth, when he sang "There ain't gonna be no peace til man kind equal rights and justice".
Punk was, unlike the Hippie Movement, very militant and the ideal of anarchy was translated for a new generation that was confronted with the extreme downpressure of the state. The militancy of the original Punk movement was directly aimed at Babylon Shitstem, just like the Rastafari Movement, and in spite of the countless cultural differences, the two movements knew themselves to be in the same fight.
Musically, Punk Bands would pay tribute to Reggae Music and this is where the Clash and this podcast enters.
The Clash was a Punk Rock band that knew themselves to be connected with Reggae Music and the message that came out of Jamaica. They teamed up with producer Mikey Dread and played a number of cover tunes in which they paid tribute to Rastafari and Reggae.
Five tunes that celebrate the Punky Reggae Party!
