    Spanish Radio Tres. Excellent if you can get it online. Currently doing a program of reggae covers of 80's stuff :D

    Some barely recognisable. 'Don't You Want Me Baby' was so funny.


    List your favourite cheesey reggae versions please.

    Aswad - Roxanne.

    The whole album of Hustle! Reggae Disco is class in a non-cheesy way, too.

    I'd completely forgotten about Roxanne. Class stuff.

    electroplated off minehead

    That sounds like the coolest thing ever! ;)

    Any chance you can tell me where to find it, I've googled without success (found a midi file for that tune though so expect a remix soon!:D )

    Shinehead's covers of almost any Michael Jackson song ... still high-pitched and whiny, but somehow the spare, spacey, speaker-rattling reggae backing tracks makes them a lot more compelling.

    Shinehead's Billy Jean was a bit duff IMO. Didn't really cut it. Actually, I can't think of any Shinehead that works for me.
