kingston 11 and the 12 days of christmas

dubbing the 12 apostles

So. The tree stands upright. Aloft and not a bit aloof.

If we water it any there will be a flash and rolling thunder. The fibre optics are twinkling nicely, dashboard flavour.

To celebrate, I and I bring you yet more from
the dub maestro's Waterhouse studio, Dromilly Avenue, Kingston 11. With a little help from . Recorded between 1975 and 1979, and mark
ing phase II of his Home Town Hi-Fi evolution; rebuilt from 'scratch' - from the roots up - after the police closed it down, G-Man style. RAT-A-TA-TAT; RUB-A-DUB-DUB. 

The Blood & Fire retrospective on which these appear, issued in '94, credits the production as follows: 

Engineered by King Tubby.
Prince Jammy; Phillip Smart; and Scientist.
Produced by Bunny Lee.
Instrumentation by the Aggrovators.

KING TUBBY: SATTA DREAD DUB from "Dub Gone Crazy: The Evolution of Dub at King Tubby's (1975 - 1979)" CD (Blood & Fire) 1994 (Jamaica)
KING TUBBY: JAH LOVE ROCKERS DUB from "Dub Gone Crazy: The Evolution of Dub at King Tubby's (1975 - 1979)" CD (Blood & Fire) 1994 (Jamaica)



The Evolution of Dub at King Tubby's...such trueness. Glad you enjoyed (that's all I ever ask) & are sharing (that's why I do).

Now if I could just get my wood to stand upright without all the aloofness.

Blessed Brumalia to you & all yours.


Man, Dub is burnin' like a house a'fire. Esteemed Nolan Micron posted up Lee "Scratch" Perry Arkology over at Castles in Space, a 3-cd set of scratchness.

I was itching to dub the first one here "Sa(n)tta Dread Dub" - in homage to "Black P(s)anta" - but that first pun cut the deepest.

A warm and joyous Brumalia right back, brother NØ, and thanks for the Tubs. In hindsight, all I want for X-Mas is the Scratch, King T, and Bunny Lee all working in tandem.

What a killer tag team.

A joyous union of Usetter; Aggrovator; and Professional.

A covenant of the ark.
