Monday Video Flashback: Judge Dread “Big Six”

Monday Video FlashbackJudge Dread needs no introduction to skinhead reggae fans or UK reggae fans in general. Former bouncer and bodyguard Alexander Hughes was deeply inspired by the likes of Prince Buster and Derrick Morgan (taking his stage name from one of Buster’s hits) while working at Trojan Records as a debt collector who went onto infamy for having the most records banned from radio play.

Here’s one of his classics little ditties and a wonderful way to get the week started with a little rude reggae – Bring Back The Skins!

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.
