Another great album i've been bashin for the past month or so. Never get tired of it
Mostly known for their breakthrough hit Ever So Lonely, there is so much more to this album.
This album is epic and thats all you need to know
Sheila ended up joining Peter Gabriel's label REALWORLD and recorded some very awesome albums (16 in all) however she is now unable to perform due to Burning mouth syndrome so now writes books. Pity, she has a awesome amazing voice..

agh summer.. summer and music go hand in hand and i have since the late 90s fallen bk to dub and reggae as anything else seems to do my head in and what could b better than some Salmonella Dub
Their 3rd album, released back in 1999.and their 4th overall as the 2nd release Dub for straights was a mini album, that dont count.
okay 3rd album over all, 3 quite successful singles were lifted from it.
How would I describe SD? >>they produce hybrid of skankin roots reggae, low rolling dub bass lines with drum n bass breaks in a distinctly Pacific style
This album marks a change in direction , moving away from the dancehall, and smokey drum and bass of their earlier releases, and have produced a rhythmic harmony driven album. with alot of Drum & Bass touches throughout the album
With the help of sampling wizard David Harrow (of technova fame), who has also worked with Dub Syndicate, and with input from THE MAD PROFESSOR, these guys have created something special.
Tiki Taane never sounded better and this album set up for what was to come in 2001.
Breakthrough and critical success with Inside The Dubplates album
This is a special Australasia release and contains a bonus CD..
Guaranteed to lift those mid winter blues people. PLAY LOUD

The Black Seeds formed 20 years ago in 1998 and are still together- They have released 7 albums.
This ,Into The Dojo is their 3rd album released bk in 2006.
The song One By One was used in Breaking Bad..
Already huge down under- this was the album that introduced TBS to the rest of the world.
Easily their most accessible album. Perfect summer music and might help those feeling is winter ever goin to end? melancholy.
Lead singer Barnaby Weir is also associated with the side-projects Fly My Pretties and Flash Harry.
Former band member Bret McKenzie is also a member of international award-winning comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, as well as playing the role of Figwit the elf in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings.
