35 years ago, punk rock and reggae met at London's legendary punk venue, The Roxy. The resultant influence of Roxy DJ Don Letts introducing each to the other, soon appeared on defining records of the era from The Clash, Bob Marley, The Slits and a wide range of bands associated with UKs first punk wave of the late 70s. 
The creative process involved tracking down legendary figures from the UKs first punk rock movement to reinterpret their favourite reggae classics, while simultaneously collaborating with the forefront of Jamaica's dancehall avant-garde, to reinterpret influential punk classics and forgotten gems.
:o
Quite surprising news to me.   :)
Just around the corner and miles away...
