Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). This album was very different. I found myself enjoying his style the more I listened to it. Johnson is equally a Poet and a Musician. He speaks more than he sings. However, the band he has is quite good.

John Scott makes the most of the sunshine (well, it was shining when he started to write this) and listens to Linton Kwesi Johnson’s 1980 reggae classic. Despite an early fondness for Desmond Dekker’s Israelites, I found myself in my late teens with a distinct lack of interest in reggae music. I’d loved the live version of Bob Marley and The Wailers’ No Woman No Cry – who couldn’t love that? – but tracks like Could You Be Loved and Three Little Birds from 1977’s Exodus album struck me as lightweight. I needed a way in; something that I could relate to and in the Summer of 1980 I found it in Lynton Kwesi Johnson’s Bass Culture album. Now don’t get me wrong: I was a young white kid from a small mining town in south east Scotland; I wasn’t fooling myself that I had anything in common with the challenges that life as an Afro-Caribbean immigrant in one of Britain’s inner cities presented.

Bass Culture is tremendous, another successful collaboration between Johnson and Bovell with songs that are, at times, even more confrontational (. "Inglan is a Bitch") than anything he had previously recorded. I will admit that the Dub Band sounds better on Forces of Victory, but Johnson is hitting his stride at the time of this release and experimenting with song structure and lyrics a little more (. not everything is explicitly political here).
