Music Non–stop

We were never conventional musicians. We never had roles to play. We always collaborated with different people picking up the mic like in the reggae and the hip–hop sense.

A very young Chris Blackwell, the Island Records supremo who brought ska and reggae music to Europe and America and nurtured the careers of Bob Marley, Third World, Burning Spear and Toots & The Maytals amongst others, can be seen dancing to the music of ska, calypso and soca specialists, Byron Lee & the Dragonaires, during a club scene in the very first James Bond movie, Dr No.
