Dread Rocker Don Letts Documentary & Pama Sounds

There’s a new documentary film on Don Letts and his legacy; from his love off reggae and dub to being the first DJ on the Punk scene paving the way for the Punky Reggae Sound, it’s a journey with the legendary DJ who witnessed Britain’s Culture Clash. Check out the trailer (embedded below, featuring music from Pama International) and visit the website for more information: www.superstonicsound.com.

“Don Letts’ reputation has been firmly established in both the film and music world by a substantial body of work from the late 70?s through the 80?s, 90’s and well into the millennium.

He came to notoriety in the late 70?s as the DJ that single handedly turned a whole generation of punks onto reggae. It was whilst as a DJ at the first punk club ‘The Roxy’ in 1977, that Don adopted the punk D.I.Y ethic and begun to make his first film ‘The Punk Rock Movie’. Shot on Super-8mm it is the only documentary on the U.K punk scene w/ The Sex Pistols, The Clash and many others.”

If you haven’t picked up Don Letts’ autobiography ‘Culture Clash: Dread Meets Punk Rockers’ it’s a good read for any music fan in general and a MUST read for any fan of reggae or The Clash.

I've been involved in the Los Angeles music scene since at least 1995 going to shows, promoting, spinning records and running labels. Ska and Early Reggae are my passion among other things of course.
