Rock is a broard church and one that normally gets a bad press. Here is my take on Rock and not an inch of spandex in sight.

Get your air guitars, close your eyes and stand by for lift off.

From the 60’s to the present day rock’s saviours and outsiders.

A very special mix of reggae tunes from a dear friend who now lives in La La Land (Los Angeles U.S.A). Production Manager, Studio Engineer and  one of the most enthusiastic people you’ll ever meet. I present Harry Bellord (In Dub).

We met at Youths Butterfly studios in Brixton, then went on tour together with Killing Joke. We both ended up in Los Angeles at the end of the 90’s and cemented our friendship.

Keep them doggies rollin’.

Round and round and round she goes. Where she stops, nobody knows.

Well, it’s been 2 years since we started this follow up to our monthly Friday night sessions and there is no signs of slowing down. Nothing is sacred here! So, thanks to all our listeners and I hope you stay with us.
