ROCKERS REVOLT

Featuring PAMA INTERNATIONAL (including LYNVAL GOLDING of the SPECIALS), THE SLACKERS and MUGO’S HI-FI.

ROCKERS REVOLT: THE STORY SO FAR

Rockers Revolt is a record label set up by UK dub collective Pama Intl. Pama includes in its line up Sean Flowerdew, Finny and Lynval Golding (of The Specials), all of whom can be heard talking about the tour and label in this podcast.

Inspired by the great independent labels; Stax, Studio One, Stiff Records and a deep-rooted DIY philosophy. What started out as being the outlet for Pama Intl’s own material, has grown into a burgeoning home for the finest soul-fueled reggae, ska, rocksteady, dub & roots artists from the UK and abroad.

In Summer 2008 Rockers Revolt upped sticks and took to the road for the REGGAE FOR THE PEOPLE tour including PAMA INTL, THE SLACKERS, THE PIETASTERS with MUNGO’S HI FI between bands.

Agent J chased up the REGGAE FOR THE PEOPLE tour over in Sheffield, UK and sat down with members of Pama, Mungos and the Slackers. Come join us for insights into the Specials reunion, Lynval’s Duffy love, Pama’s TROJAN experience and the world of an independent label.

Listen out for contributions from Groovement veteran Kwasi, on the tour as MC for Mungo’s!
