Reggae Wednesday

This week, London is calling. The Skints hail from England's capital but if you didn't know any better you'd swear they were from Kingston, Jamaica. They describe themselves as "When you're a punk band, but reggae is life." The spirit of '77 lives on, then.

Where the Skints succeed is not only that authentic roots sound, but having three members who sing vocals, they can mix the styles up a bit. On today's track, they also rope in two London-based legends - Tippa Irie and MC/drummer Horseman. Five vocalists on one song paying homage to their hometown. This Town is taken from The Skints' third album, 2015's 'FM'.
