Gaylads Talk Recording With Skatalites, Motown Love and Being Rasta

The GayladsFrench Reggae site Reggae.fr posted a video with the mighty Gaylads recently. The band currenty consists of Harris ‘BB’ Seaton, Maurice Roberts and Randall Thaxter who of course played here in LA for the first time earlier this year.

They talk a little bit about what inspired them including what famous Motown band they really liked listening to, how it was recording with The Skatalites and how that contributed to their music. They also talk about the radio station control at the time they were recording in the 60′s.

The video includes excerpts from their performance at Garance Reggae Festival 2012 as well as interview sections. Check it out at this link.

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.
