punk/soul/funk/reggae mash-up...recommendations please

Recommended Posts

the music i love is punk and reggae, but i mostly go to soul/funk clubs, never punk nights (they're always shite) so i'm after some fucked up punk with a bit of soul, funk or reggae in it, some of the bands i've found so far have been...

 

MC5...obviously

 

mAKE uP...fucking amazing

 

Dub Narcotic...can never find their stuff, what's the best to order?

 

The Slits...3-piece woman band playing punky reggae? perfect

 

P.I.L....what's the best to get?

 

Liquid Liquid...saw them live last month, amazing

 

 

and a few more of the early 80's New York Noise, UK punk/dub crossover type bands, but the soul/punk thing is what i'm after now, from any era, any suggestions would be grand, cheers

shit man, of course i love Bad Brains! how could i forget!?

 

not a fan of Fishbone though, don't like the slightest hint of metal in my music

 

The Clash i've meant to get some of for ages, i only have a dub version of Bankrobber, which is excellent. but i never realised the Damned had anything like that, will investigate

 

most of the rest i've never heard of, but will look up cheers

"If i had ta swim a river...Guess that I would do it."

I could mention Mad Caddies, but I'm not sure if they're what you're looking for..They mix ska and punk, with the whole trumpet and trombone thingy going on. It's really good, so if you're into punk you should check the out.

Bah. Ska rules. Too many bands mix ska and punk, making it sound sucky. Mad Caddies is surely one of the bands that pulls it off without a doubt. Bosstones aswell. I think that you should seperate ska and punk when making music. Ska is happy, punk's not.

Fuck people should listen to more ska! Slackers, Specials (2-tone maybe..), Skanksters etc. I could go on forever....

i played saxaphone with the singer of seespot, but he killed himself...... link 187's singer the son of danielle steele killed himself.

rolan alfonso saxaphone player of the skatalites died and a memorial was played for him on the ska parade.
