by Bob Harding on 24 September 2015

We already unveiled our range of fantastic T-Shirts last week but we thought we’d remind you again because DOH! – we forgot to tell you previously that shipping on the the T-shirts is absolutely free in the UK. Obviously not everyone is in the UK but the rates for Europe and the Rest of the World are very reasonable at £3 and £4 respectively. So please check out the T-shirts, we have them in both men’s and women’s fits and there’s a wide range of colours to choose from.
Our new release “Join The Queue” by Dillinger is now available to order in vinyl, MP3 and FLAC formats. If you buy the vinyl edition you will also get a free MP3 download of the entire album. In fact we’ve applied this feature to all the physical products (vinyl and CD) on the site so any time you buy a vinyl or CD release you’ll get the MP3 download too.

JTQ_sleeve_ Well, it’s been a while but we have a new album release on 2nd October. It’s the 1982 Dillinger LP “Join The Queue”, an excellent but seemingly little-known work which was originally released on the Oak Sound label in the same year as the seminal 12″ single “Five Man Army” which we reissued last year. For some reason the album seemed to disappear off the radar and is not particularly well known today. But it deserves to be heard by a wider audience as it’s on a par with Dillinger’s best work, and interestingly it captures the transition from the older Seventies roots style to the newer dancehall rhythms epitomised by the then in-demand studio outfit Roots Radics who contribute five of the rhythms on the album. The other five come courtesy of Lloyd Parks’s We The People Band and all are original recordings made specifically for this album.

Dillinger himself is in sparkling form throughout, throwing down fresh and original lyrics ranging from the playful to the boastful (”Dillinger The People’s Choice”) to the downright rootical on such tunes as ‘Please Officer’ and ‘Rub A Dub Anthem’ which features some highly idiosyncratic vocalising. He even manages to slip in a bit of authentic yodelling on ‘Duddle Oley’, something not heard too often on a reggae record.

The album will be on limited edition vinyl and download only.

AVAILABLE ON PRE-ORDER FROM 25TH SEPTEMBER. DON’T MISS OUT!

Bunny Lee and Friends – Good News

KSPCD003 Bunny Lee and Friends - Good NewsAfter two heavyweight dub excursions, firstly from Bunny Lee & The Agrovators and then from The Breadwinners, King Spinna’s third release is an all-singing affair. In fact it was suggested by Bunny Lee himself – “Why you don’t put out the vocals?” [click to continue…]
King Spinna’s third release “Good News” by Bunny Lee & Friends will be available from 27 May. After two heavyweight dub excursions from The Agrovators and The Breadwinners, this one is an all-singing affair. In fact it’s the companion vocal volume to our first release “Dub Will Change Your Mind” and the tracks are sequenced in exactly the same order. Spanning the years 1975 to 1978 it features singers who were already music industry veterans at the time such as Jackie Edwards, Derrick Morgan and Owen Gray alongside more contempory artists such as Cornell Campbell, Ronnie Davis, Johnny Clarke, John Holt, Joy White and Leroy Smart.

This release is CD and download only; a future release on vinyl is a possibility subject to demand. There will be more information on this release soon so watch this space!
Once again The Breadwinners will be opening the show for the legendary Lee Scratch Perry at Band On The Wall on 18th & 19th February, featuring:

City Culture – Vocals

The Breadwinners will be performing tracks from their recently-released debut album “Dubs Unlimited” (plus lots of tracks that aren’t on the album). So if you’ve got tickets for the show please come early and don’t miss this unique Live Dub experience!
