two in the bush

"I'm a miracle man, things happen which I don't plan, I've never planned anything. Whatsoever I do, I want it to be an instant action object, instant reaction subject. Instant input, instant output."

One listen to these Chris Blackwell denounced superlatives is sufficient to inform you where Public Image Ltd. were coming from. The second here - from the sublime 2007 Trojan remixes - features the mighty U Roy voice in tip top form.

Oh, nø. I and I is converted.

Well, here’s one from Trojan...
Savage Pencil presents: Lion vs. Dragon in Dub. It got King Tubby, Lee Perry, Prince Jazzbo, Augustus Pablo, Blackbeard All Stars & many others, but particular to your comment...Bunny Lee & the Aggrovators (“Pablo in Black Ark”); Dennis Brown,King Tubby & the Observer (“Dub Roots of David”); plus the always classic Augustus Pablo doing “King Tubby Meets the Rockers Uptown” & more pertinent to our previous dialogue, “Satan Side Version (aka Kiss 14).

was savage pencil the same guy Edwin Pouncey? writer of many a fine mid-80s article in NME turning an impressionableyoung Daly onto music such as big black, funkadelic and Mingus. he compiled too?

Yes, the one and same. And very much alive; in the event I was misleading. Not simply a cartoonist; commercial artist; and writer. But musician too. And sometime compiler.

I have his Antiquack, Dead Duck selection in a rather beautifully presented gatefold.


I'm always loving his artwork & his comps...got quite a few...especially like Savage Pencil presents Angel Dust (music for movie bikers) with Davie Allan & the Arrows, Harley Hatcher, The Poor, The Hogs to name a few (also great sound-bite from 60s type biker movies interspersed).
