Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Just passing on the following e-mail :

Check out this promo clip that helps explain what the whole program is all about -


New updated promo clip for The Reggae 69 Fan Club Kickstarter Campaign, featuring music from the Irie Beats band. Release new music and help foster the sounds of 69 from today's modern bands. It's simple. We want to release new 45's of vintage style Ska and reggae. We're all collectors and DJ's. We appreciate the feel of the vinyl in our hands. There are many bands today that are carrying on that tradition and we'd like to help em keep the flame alive. You're support will make a statement for working class fans and the music we all love. We need your help though. Instead of pre-ordering and waiting forever to get things - not having any idea if and when it was going to happen we're taking a different approach. We've decided to use a platform called Kickstarter that offers security, reliability and transparency of where your money if going. If we don't reach our funding goal of $3000 or more by Tuesday February 15 NOTHING happens - you don't lose your money and we don't get any funds to start our new record club. BUT if you do pledge your money to the campaign and funding goes through then you get exclusives and bonus releases! Go here to pledge & see all the great exclusives!


We've also started a Facebook page and a PHOTO CONTEST!


IT'S SIMPLE: Upload your best photo representative of what the music, the fashion and the style of Reggae 69 means to you. Be it you in your best boots and braces or your sharkskin suit. Maybe it's you and your scooter or your stack of vinyl. Any photo that represents life, style, lifestyle and the working class sounds of a young Jamaica. Once you get it uploaded share it with your friends and whoever gets the most LIKES by Tuesday February 14th will win a free set of records from the Reggae 69 Fan Club! So share your passion with your friends and you could win FREE goodies. So there you go. We're really working hard to bring you some great music but we can only do it with your help by pledging some cash to help us get the funds to press the new records. It's really REGGAE FOR THE PEOPLE! READ MORE HERE
