The Reggae Tribute Genre

I’m utterly digging the Easy Star All Stars right now. My esteemed colleage Mr. Rudkin introduced us to Dub Side Of The Moon a couple of months ago - Pink Floyd’s trillion-selling behemoth done in its entirety through the medium of dub reggae.

Radiodread

Well, they’re back with Radiodread. This time around, Radiohead’s epic OK Computer is reworked through the roots-style reggae filter. How could we not love Horace Andy’s vocals on Airbag, Toots and the Maytals jollification of Let Down or Menny More tackling Fitter Happier?

Grab a can of Lilt, head on over, and experience the friendly pop-up window that’ll instantly start treating your ears to some of Radiodread’s great moments. I’d love to know what Mr. Thom of Yorke thinks of it all…
