Scientist meets the Space Invaders
Greensleeves 1981

Scientist, front

First, light up a spliff, then sit down and suck in
this slice of dubbing adventure. Okay, now light up
another spliff, turn up the volumes of your stereo,
kick aside your furniture and experience some of
the best pounding dub beats ever made on earth.
It was 1981, a flock of spaceships entered the
London atmosphere. Hopeton Brown, better
known as Scientist was luckily around with
the Roots Radics to save the day. Tony
McDermott made the snapshot at a
perfect moment and captured our
young hero in full action.
Sowell, Bingy Bunny,
Flabba, Style & Santa,
Sky Juice & Skully,
Steely & Winston,
Gladdie, they were all
there with Maxie, Banabas
& Crucial Bunny, Linvall Thompson
and Mickie ‘Roots’ Scott,
Dub away…

    Ah Moos!
    Such sage advice… Exactly how to listen to this.
    Haven’t heard it in years, it must be said, but it was a permenant feature on the turntable back in ’81, South London. Oh yes. And letting it wrap around my brain just now brings back that heady feeling again – without the need for recourse to a big fat one. Must be getting old.
    Thanks so much for sharing.
