Be 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 @ www.viceland.com!
