Singers And Players War Of Words on 12" Vinyl + Poster + Download

Originally released on cult imprint 99 Records in 1981, War Of Words is the classic debut album by Singers & Players, a loose collective featuring top Jamaican deejays Prince Far I and Jah Woosh, plus members of the Arabs and Roots Radics. The mic is dominated on this record by the sweet vocals of cover star Bim Sherman.

Whilst very much based on a dub reggae blueprint, the record also features Keith Levene from Public Image Limited on guitar and Ari Up from The Slits on backing vocals. Kingston sound system culture as viewed through the prism of the London post-punk squat scene, and championed by the quintessential downtown NYC no wave record label.

The track "Reaching The Bad Man" was a highlight of the recent compilation Sherwood At The Controls Volume One: 1979-1984, and is very much a product of that era of Adrian Sherwood's leftfield experiments with the possibilities of dub. Re-cut on 12" vinyl at Dubplates & Mastereing in Berlin for maximum bass pressure. Includes 4 panel fold-out 12" x 12" poster insert and download card
