Two Sevens Clash

After listening to quite a bit of dub over the weekend. I thought I should post one of my favorite dub tracks.

Two Sevens Clash was the first release by roots reggae outfit Culture and was produced by Joe Gibbs. The song was based on an apocalyptic prediction by Marcus Garvey that there would be world wide turmoil on the seventh of July 1977 when the sevens met. In Kingston on that date many businesses did not open and many citizens didn't even venture outdoors.

I get this feeling of turmoil every Monday morning.

Best gig I have been to was Culture at the Rainbow, Finsbury Park. Me and my mate, Simon. It was our White Man in Hammersmith Palais moment
