Vice Rockers!

horsemouth-in-snowBe sure to pick up the new issue of Vice Magazine (if you can) which I think has run an outstanding in-depth article with Theodoros Bafaloukos, writer and director of that wonderful little film called Rockers, “the film that single-handedly made Jamaica and reggae interesting to couch-cozy white folks, their stoner kids, and a bunch of famous English punks with guitars” as the article states.

I thought The Harder They Come did that but I’m not gonna quibble. It’s open to which one had the greater impact on the world at large I guess (although there’s only one with a touring musical based on the film version) with something so little – I’m just glad they have decided to include such a great article. Really – you would think that some other magazine – The Beat or Waxpoetics for instance – would have gotten around to this story since they mentioned that this is the first time in 30 years that he has done a print story but who cares let’s just enjoy the read.

If it’s not actually in the printed version (which I don’t have a copy of) it’s already up on the site for all to read. Oh yeah did I mention the good amount of rare and very cool images (you can see one of Horsenmouth above) included with the story so just read the dam thing already @!

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.
