MP3: Easy Star All*Stars - Radiodread
Released this week is one of the most amusing, and yet enjoyable cds i've heard for quote a while. Easy Star All*Stars previously released a very successful reggae/dub version of Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon, surprisingly called Dub Side Of The Moon. Those crazy guys. Radiodread is their new release, and its a complete reggae version of Radiohead's Ok Computer. Some of it is perhaps not dub enough for me, sticking too much to the original, but some of it is truly brilliant, and it would be very very good background music for a partay. The Toots & Maytals Let Down is absolutely brilliant, and the version of Fitter, Happier is absolutely hilarious. Here's some tracks for you to sample. I recommend it veeeery highly.
You can buy the record from Easy Star Records.
