ROY ELLIS: Rudy Skankin’ On The Moon (Vinyl 7″)

ROY ELLIS: Rudy Skankin' On The Moon Yes, you did read that right, original rudeboy Roy Ellis of Symarip fame has a brand new 45 coming out with a brand new song on it called Rudy Skankin’ On The Moon. Readers with keen memories may remember that this song originally came out featuring a pretty righteous set of vocals by Melbourne Douglas on Original Gravity’s Reggae Dynamite Vol. 2, so – er – why the new

How to represent such goings

WAX MACHINE: Springtime / Canto De Iemanja

WAX MACHINE: Springtime / Canto De IemanjaIt might, technically, be a very early summer release but Springtime is funky as well as folksy-psychedelic on Wax Machine’s new double A-side single ahead of the release of their self-produced Hermit’s Grove LP.
