TOOTS & THE MAYTALS, LARRY LOVE & THE DUB PISTOLS!


THE OFFICIAL TOOTS AND THE MAYTALS AFTER PARTY!

There's an exciting night coming up next Friday (9th September) at Alabama 3's home base, Brixton Jamm!

Toots and the Maytals, the legendary reggae innovators,  are coming to London to play a packed Brixton Academy and will be coming down to Jamm to keep the party going for the rest of the night.

As Jamm says:
'With such a legendary reggae act, we are proud to have the opportunity to present the best possible reggae music talent from right here in the UK, all under one roof.'

Donations will be made to the Toots Foundation, Toots's own charity, providing aid to under-privileged youth in Jamaica and Toots himself will be signing autographs in the venue.

Along with all that, Alabama 3 fans will be pleased to hear that Larry Love has got involved too!  He will be performing a couple of numbers with The Dub Pistols  - in particular, a brand new song 'Superstition' written with The Dub Pistols.

Barry Ashworth from The Dub Pistols explained the origin of their track 'Superstition', made in collaboration with Alabama 3's Larry Love.

'Alabama 3 are one of my all time favourite bands.
We've always wanted to work with Alabama 3, so we sent Larry Love a backing track that Dub Pistols had put down to see what he thought he could do with it.  
A few days later he phoned from the studio to say he'd put down vocals on the track, and was very excited and enthusiastic about it.'


Says Barry 'it's one of the best things I've ever heard!'

The gig at Jamm will be the first time anyone has heard the song, and the first time they have been on stage together.

'Larry is one the few real artists left in this world - one of the few true rock and roll artists still alive.  We can't wait for him to be on stage with us!'

'Superstition' will be on the forthcoming Dub Pistols' album, due for release next March.

Time Out says:
'Following their show at Brixton Academy around the corner, Jamm throw an after-party, with one of the best line-ups we've seen here in a long while, for reggae legends Toots and the Maytals. Cue a live set from Dub Pistols (oh yes, they're back), plus DJ sets from dreaded dub-punk originator Don Letts, dancehall collective The Heatwave, the Reggae Roast crew and many more, and there'll be a live set from The Drop, plus Toots will be signing autographs on the night and there'll be a barbecue in the front yard.'
