Narrated by Mikey Dread, this original footage from the early 1980’s gives some nice insight into the culture of Sound Systems in the UK.
To be more precise, we’re introduced to one particular Sound System.

Meet Coxsone Sound: The UK’s Number One in the Reggae Sound System business during the time of this interesting documentary. As the video opens, we meet them on their way to a Reggae dance in Birmingham where they’re about to play a show.

After that introduction, Mikey Dread continues to explain just what a Sound System is, and how there is a complete underground network of these sounds.

Yes, this is 1981 and so that is where today’s UK DUB and Sound system culture is coming from.

In that time, though, Coxsone Sound was already well established as we see in the video. The whole posse is interviewed as they explain just what it is they are doing, and of course we’ll see them live in action.

The major differences with "western" music are explained too. By none other than David Rodigan, himself a already an established Reggae Radio DJ back in 1981 already.

Interesting, informative, entertaining. And historical! Many people still look on that time frame (1975-1985) as the "golden age" of Reggae. And even though it’s really nonsense to look for Reggae’s success as a thing of the past only, it’s always good to see where everything is coming from.

This documentary therefore is highly and deeply recommended for every lover of Reggae Music and Culture.

Fontella Bass, US soul singer of Rescue Me, dies at 72

The American soul singer, Fontella Bass, best remembered for the hit single Rescue Me, has died of complications following a heart attack. She was 72.

She had been in poor health for much of the past seven years.

Rescue Me reached the top of the US R&B chart in 1965 and is one of the best known soul songs. It has been covered by many artists.

Fontella Bass had a powerful voice and a background steeped in music.

Her mother was gospel singer Martha Bass, one of the Clara Ward Singers and Fontella Bass began performing at a young age, singing in her church’s choir at the age of six.

Like many of her generation, she graduated to soul and R&B in the 60s, signing to Chess Records.

She first found success in a duet with Bobby McClure on Don’t Mess Up a Good Thing and You’ll Miss Me (When I’m Gone).

She co-wrote Rescue Me, a song her daughter Neuka Mitchell said “held a special place in her heart”.

But it took years of legal battles for her to receive full royalty rights to the song. A final settlement was reached more than 20 years after the song was first released.

Ms Mitchell said her mother was an outgoing person. “She had a very big personality. Any room she entered, she just lit the room up, whether she was on stage or just going out to eat.”

Fontella Bass was married to the great jazz trumpeter, Lester Bowie, who was her musical director.

She died in the city where she was born, St Louis, Missouri.

Retired US General Norman Schwarzkopf, who led troops in the 1991 Gulf War, has died aged 78.

Gen Schwarzkopf – known as Stormin’ Norman – was commander of coalition forces in the first Gulf War in 1990-91.

The US-led coalition drove Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s forces out of Kuwait.

Former US President George H W Bush described Gen Schwarzkopf as “one of the great military leaders of his generation”.

Gen Schwarzkopf spent his retirement in Tampa, Florida, where he had served in his last military assignment as commander-in-chief of US Central Command.

His military success made him one of America’s most famous modern generals, although some criticised him for negotiating ceasefire terms which allowed Saddam Hussein to remain in power, says the BBC’s Ben Wright in Washington.

President Bush, who was in office during the first Gulf War, said he “mourned the loss” of Gen Schwarzkopf, “one of the great military leaders of his generation”.

Mr Bush, who remains in intensive care at the Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas, issued a statement, saying: “A distinguished member of that Long Gray Line hailing from West Point, General Schwarzkopf, to me, epitomised the ‘duty, service, country’ creed that has defended our freedom and seen this great nation through our most trying international crises.

“More than that, he was a good and decent man – and a dear friend. Barbara and I send our condolences to his wife Brenda and his wonderful family.”

US Republican Senator John McCain tweeted that Gen Schwarzkopf was “one of the great American heroes”.

“We thank him for his service,” he said.

US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta also paid tribute to the general, saying his 35 years of service had “left an indelible imprint on the United States military and on the country”.

“His bravery during two tours in Vietnam earned him three silver stars, and set him on the path to lead our troops into battle in Grenada, and then to take charge of the overall allied effort in the first Gulf War as Commander of United States Central Command,” he said.

“General Schwarzkopf’s skilled leadership of that campaign liberated the Kuwaiti people and produced a decisive victory for the allied coalition.

“In the aftermath of that war, General Schwarzkopf was justly recognised as a brilliant strategist and inspiring leader. Today, we recall that enduring legacy and remember him as one of the great military giants of the 20th Century.”

During Operation Desert Storm, Gen Schwarzkopf famously used one of his regular news conferences to taunt his opponent.

“As far as Saddam Hussein being a great military strategist, he is neither a strategist, nor is schooled in the operational art, nor is he a tactician, nor is he a general, nor is he a soldier: other than that, he’s a great military man – I want you to know that,” he said.

Gen Schwarzkopf’s sometimes fiery temper meant that he clashed with subordinates and superiors alike, including the then Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen Colin Powell.

Despite this and his bluff appearance, he was smarter and more diplomatic than many critics gave him credit for, says BBC world affairs correspondent Nick Childs.

After the first Gulf War Gen Schwarzkopf became a national celebrity, but always rejected suggestions that he run for office himself.

Overview:
Duke Nukem, the politically incorrect celebrity and ultimate alien ass kicker, defends Earth and its babes from alien invasion.
He is a can-do hero who realizes that sometimes innocent people have to die in order to save Earth, so accuracy of gun fire is not a real concern to him. This is the award winning game that helped define the FPS genre and introduced unparalleled interactivity and a talking main character.

Take the fight to the aliens in Hollywood, Los Angeles, a moon base and alien spacecraft. Defeat the aliens, so Duke can get back to some R&R with a stogie, a warm belly and a bottle of Jack.

Atomic Edition is the most complete version of the game that includes fourth bonus episode, new weapon and enemies.
