Rootz Underground smokes out Phish

Rootz Underground – “Makisupa Policeman” mp3

Marvelous. This collection of ganja-soaked reggae versions of Phish songs is a crazy little treasure box, and Rootz Underground dishing up “Makisupa Policeman” is one of the highlights. Dubby, bubbly goodness, with some tasty instrumental work, and cheerfully insubordinate lyrics that remain faithful to the original while expanding on its theme. A fine toasty blend.

Steel Pulse goes Phishing

One of the gr8est and longest running live reggae acts, Steel Pulse has a sound to match their name. This very unexpected treat comes from “Dub Like An Antelope – Legends of Reggae Celebrate Phish,” and yes, you read that correctly. Toots and the Maytals, Yellowman and other reggae superstars lend their talents to this collection of covers – of songs originally performed by that most revered of jam bands. Huh? No, really Dorothy, and what’s more, it’s good. Pay a visit to the Phish “Farmhouse” with Handsworth’s finest.
