V/A-Wild Paarty Sounds Volume One



First volume -- though the second never happened -- of this ongoing collaboration between post-punk stalwarts Cherry Red and home of the western dub On U Sound, originally released in 1981. Adrian Sherwood obviously sitting behind the desk and a cast of marvelous artists leading the way for a reggae renaissance. Stolen and contaminated songs, you may take this as a reference point for 12 unreleased tracks showing the best of the UK underground rhythms. A further development of the Jamaican heritage, with handmade electronics and a forward-thinking production. Mothmen's "Afghani Dub" is one of the leading tracks here, with future members of Durutti Column and Simply Red on board, this is a mystical post-industrial trip through upbeat rhythms. Along the way you'll find the over-the-top vocal performance of Judy Nylon -- more akin to certain no wave expressionism -- futuristic vibes from Suns Of Arqa, contribution from New Age Steppers supergroup and Creation Rebelteaming up with the so-called Jamaican "Voice of Thunder", Prince Far I. All in all, a (natural) mystic experience. Also features Jah Woosh, Machine Gun Hogg & Co., The Chicken Granny, Alan Pellay, London Underground, and Jeb Loy & The Oil Wells. Fully remastered and licensed, limited to 500 copies; 180 gram vinyl.
