As a reggae Musician/Producer/Artist/DJ
I have always been a avid supporter of Australian Music
I regularly listen to Aussie Reggae, Does anyone else?
Some of my faves are
in no particular order

Freaky Lou- Live cd
One for One - Scare Tactics
Kooii-Beads on a string
Earth Reggae-Indigina
HRG-Live Equador & Inna missionary
Agency Dub- Insurgency
Stop Wonderin Now-4zzz Sampler

These are some of my favorite cds to listen to plus they are Home grown :wink:

haven't got any actually - never seen any for sale either. Definitely interested to hear more than just some myspace bits and pieces though. Also eagerly anticipating the Melbourne meets kingston release, for people in the know: is this gonna get good distribution?

Featuring King Tubby, Jah Shaka, I Jah Don, the Tamlins, Freedom masses, maybe Aswad and others alongside Austrlian reggae ILand, Freedom Principle and the General.

Ok - well I havent experienced enough Oz Sounds to comment, but I gotta give a big forward to The Secret Masters, Red Eyes and Agency Dub Collective all on the dubwise tip of the spectrum.

And for a heavyweight rootical sound, my full praises go to the semi-reitred Heigher Heights.
Come back soon bredren!

I also rate the Sunshine Brothers CD, quality dub.

Resurectors was on rotation inna mi yard for 2 months too!!

Raggabeats have a CD out pretty good, and the ska band Special Brew have recorded some demos I have heard on the radio, one really funny track all about a perth dread Lenny.

Selecta Bing!... I like what you say brother! :wave:

Add the early Allniters (esp "Mr Uinoshi"), Naughty Rhythms!!! and Club Ska to that ska category too... And my mate Andy from Newcastle gave me a tape of a copy of the Happy Accidents who were a Ska Revival band from the early 80´s Newcastle scene... Sounded ace to me! I can send a copy to interested parties...

This is a good thread! :respect:

I find australian take on reggae dissapointing. I've gone out to see a couple of bands that had reggae descriptions on their posters but was really dissapointed with what they played. It was very dumbed down. Does anyone else feel the same way?
