Socialist Reggae?


Macaroni cheese controller
lyrics reminds me a bit of this
The Meditations - No Peace

that could really do with a vinyl reissue...dont think its hit vinyl since 1978
I think you're right, I'll play it on my radio show this week. Just checked - the 7" came on Upsetter and Black Art, two different mixes of which I only have the Upsetter, surprised it hasn't been reissued.

Edited as I got another Meditations tune on 12" mixed up.

This LP just got repressed:

Great titles (below) sound samples up at dub vendor

Well Pack Band / Winston Edwards - Strike (Studio 16) LP

Rare dub / instrumental album produced by Winston Edwards in 1980, warm and easy UK vibes with lots of horns, sounds like the Well Pack Band may be Matumbi or members thereof in another guise. The theme being the workers socialist struggle against the tyranny of the bosses was probably hot at the time, though the music is more mellow than militant.

Side A:
1. New Approach To Workers
2. More Power To The Workers
3. Bad Management
4. Mahagement Attitude To Workers

Side B:
1. Better Working Conditions For Workers
2. Union & Management
3. More Opportunity For Workers Children
4. Stop Victimisation


I'll do it this afternoon
I made a playlist of as many of the tracks mentioned here as I could find on spotify.

I'm not sure how it works but hopefully at least one of these links will mean people can listen to it and add more tracks as the thread (hopefully) grows;
