RC 225: Babylondon 2012

Welcome to Gridlock! They call it murder…

A state of the capital address about London, 2012, Babylon and ting. Righteous music from roots reggae to dubstep, soul, rock and gothabilly & psychobilly (and two Orchestras  and  some funky dubby jaxz from Miles Davis!) celebrating Jamaica’s 50th birthday and Red, Gold and Green rather than Bronze, Gold and Silver.

“The man who worships silver and gold, shall surely, surely, surely lose his own soul, Then fade away”. (and a track I forgot to play on this podcast! Bless you Junior Byles).

I don’t play enough Jamaican music so inspired by David Rodigan here is a dubtastic podcast.
