Two Tone Gone Ska! Hear Dave Barker on BBC6 Music
21 August 2012
BBC6 show yesterday. Brilliant long interview, which included him playing 'I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down' fromthe new Phoenix City All-Stars 'Two Tone Gone Ska' album. You can hear it again for the next 6 days here http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01m0m7t (starts around 1hr37min)
With this in mind Phoenix City All-Stars present a truly unique celebration of one of Britain's most iconic labels. Taking some of 2 Tone's greatest songs and replanting in 1960's Jamaica, the resulting tracks are truly authentic sounding Blazing 60's ska, akin to The Skatalites, rocksteady and early reggae.
Wonderfully inspired interpretations, performed by an all-star band plus legendary guest vocalists Dave Barker (the voice of Dave & Ansell Collins) and AJ Franklin (The Federals and The Chosen Few).
