Dub: Best Dressed Chicken in Town

BestDressedChickenIn my world, Dr. Alimantado (born Winston Thompson, AKA The Ital Surgeon) and his Best Dressed Chicken in Town was my introduction to reggae long before I realized the power of Catch-A-Fire-Bob-Marley, Legalize-It Peter Tosh and Roast Fish Collie Weed & Corn Bread Lee “Scratch” Perry.

Public Image Limited’s Jah Wobble’s reggae-influenced thunk-punk bass, morphed into dancehall and reggaeton drilled into my heart, mind and body at live shows and tropical Central America trips where Marley was always and will probably always be blastin 24/7/365.

Now, right now, it’s Deadbeat’s To Berlin With Love electro-Berlin Dub reggae, Bunji, and Major Lazer. What about tomorrow?
