me an me bredrin will be comming - static - hope to catch up for some reasonings or something mind altering - hope the sound equipment is decent - heavy bass crisp treble style - no dibby dibby mid range rock guitar business!

pity ... was wanting to see the hunta man - lets hope midnite and turbulence dont suddenly find themselves with better things to do ...

remember was in JA a long time ago and really looking foward to a Johnnie Osbourne show which turned into a no show


Nah don't worry Midnite's here, me and vaughn were at the normanby yesterday getting on it...

okay, in the time-honoured ozreggae tradition, let me now ask (after the event)... who recorded the audio of Midnite's performances?

I want to hear this audio more than any other event which has ever happened in this country! :)

Bredren it was a medley at like minus five. Dem present a point of difference as a band fe real in the entire history of reggae and do not sound like any other reggae band. Closest thing they sound to is The Wailers an de way dem did sound at de infamous peace concert IMO, but even then...
Apparently the three hour set on the previous night was more varied an up tempo.
Mi did learn something about my own feelings an perceptions on reggae by watching dem though. Firstly mi did enjoy dem but it did start to bore me. It's very cerebral reggae and wat mi did learn is mi predominantly like music dat one can play on sound system and IMO Midnite is generally not sintin to play on sound. Mi rate dem most definitely and Vaughns lyrics are confronting and have great depth. At de performance though mi did have some problems deciphering his lyrics as im did a mumble a likkle.
De first time mi ever did hear Midnite was on A Wildchild mix cd as de last track in like late '02. Well mi did ask around Ja. (for a dub, cah de point of diffence was refreshing) who dis was an nobody knew. Mi imagine it's much de same today... :lol:

Have to really big up Jesse I, Ranking, Crucial etc. who in my mind did really pioneer Midnite business from dem times and went to St. Croix....

Jake yu band was hot like fire and Vida was hotter than sun did gwaan good.

Huas voice IMO has improved and is finding more depth an it is a real pleasure to listen to his talent...
Big to everyone mi did laff an reason wid, an off course all singers an players of instruments. :respect:

thanks for the feedback. I've heard a lot of people say they find Midnite boring, but I think it comes down to expectations. If people are expecting a jump-up hype show, better they go see Anthony B or someone else, cause Midnite aren't that kind of act. Static, you put it well when you call it cerebral reggae, that's kinda how I see it too.

I like that you say they don't sound like any other reggae band too. when I first started hearing about them in 2001, 2002, a lot of people said they found them too derivative of the 70s dread bands like Twinkle Brothers. I never really felt that - sure the riddims can be deep roots and very dread, but it's different still, and very original to my ears.
