In Jamaica mon we say Babylon burn
And burn is what Babylon will do …ughmmm – is doing.
Last September NYC lost the East Village Reggae Shop Jammyland. No,
it wasn’t because of the wafts of smoke pouring out from the walls and
I’m sure it wasn’t for lack of supplying NYC with “more platters that
matter” ranging from Calypso to Dancehall, Ska, soul, funk and dub –
this was the place.If you were lucky you might run into a Legend , as
in one of the Whailers or like this lucky guy.
