The Radicals. Tracks 4, 5 and 6 from the original vinyl release have been excluded form this re-release as they were three live tracks by Peter Gabriel as follows:. The origins of this band are unknown. They live in a disused church hall near Bristol's Docks. This is where they practice. Fish Food have played four times in the last year They took three and a half hours to record the music for this album. Of all the bands that started up in Bristol during the period, the X-Certs are one of only a handful remaining.
Originally the local heroes of every spikey-haired person and honour now bestowed to Vice Squad , the X-Certs have grown older. Their improvement during the intervening eighteen months has been substantial and the introduction of Chris and Kev to the line up has added maturity and power to the bands set. The X-Certs remain one of Bristols best and most popular live bands and a reggae influence now features in about fifty per cent of their material.
The Radicals is one of those terrible names that gets thought up when a group of musicians have to find a name for themselves. This is a way of saying that The Radicals do not really exist as such. The songs are written by John and King. This group of musicians from Bath are better known as The Korgis and recorded this one track for The Bristol Recorder using a different name. The Studio tracks on this album were recorded and mixed 16 to 20 October, at Crescent Studios Bath.
They were engineered by David Lord and assisted by the wonderful Steve Street. You are commenting using your Facebook account. Notify me of new comments via email. Notify me of new posts via email.

Shifting the emphasis onto the rhythm, the drum, the bass, the guitar, the horns and adding just a little melodica, the track is reinvented for the twentieth century. It becomes a lost classic from the late seventies and an entirely different listening experience. For further information on Rootikal please see www.
This time we continue our quest not only with a selection of rarities, but with several tracks that have never been previously released, by popular demand Volume 2 also comes with greater dub content. The Radicals, 3-D Production and Joshua Moses will be familiar to those who have Volume 1 and return with more of the same. The Joshua Moses track is previously unreleased and appears here thanks to the detective work of Mike Darby.
Both tracks are previously unreleased. Recorded in it perfectly sums up the way Reggae music started to change direction. Dan was an ever present part of the Bristol scene in the late eighties and nineties and hopefully this will be the first of many tracks we get to license for future releases.
Hopefully it shows how the live, band based scene at the start of the decade evolved to be more solo artist based a few years later. This sowed the seeds for the explosion in studio based production companies that were just around the corner, the two volumes compliment each other perfectly, roll on Volume 3!
