Mystic Bowie's Talking Dreads
Mystic Bowie's Talking Dreads
alking Dreads began as a project born from the audacious notion that hardcore Heads-lovers wouldn’t mind a tinkering or two with their favorite Talking Heads tunes, and there is a lot of great music here that will make you stop, listen and smile a little bit more as you’re grooving along to the joyous rhythms and jubilant spirit of the island vibe.

Talking Dreads is the brainchild of Head Dread, Mystic Bowie, a Jamaican artist whose long and close relationship with Chris Franz and Tina Weymouth, founding members of Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club, began when he joined the latter group as a singer in 1996. He then recorded and performed with Tom Tom Club for nearly twenty years and continues to bear fruit from their unending collaborations.

This inaugural effort from Talking Dreads features an amazing lineup of stellar reggae stalwarts including Freddie McGregor [‘Rastaman Camp’, Bobby Babylon], ska-guitar master Ernest Ranglin (session player and arranger of Millie’s smash ‘My Boy Lollipop’, the Melodians ‘Rivers Of Babylon’, and countless other tracks], and Tarrus Reilly (’Start Anew’, ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’) as well as a little help from punk-pop diva Cindy Wilson of The B-52s (‘Rock Lobster’, ‘Love
Eat Yer Meat (Pink Floyd Tribute)
Eat Yer Meat (Pink Floyd Tribute)
Featuring members of DC/Baltimore acts ELM, Moogatu, Psycho Killers, Second Self, and B Side Shuffle, Eat Yer Meat puts its own spin on Pink Floyd classics. In true homage to the masters of psychedelic rock, the group skillfully uses the Floyd catalogue as a jumping off point for energetic and exploratory improvisation, all while preserving the integrity of the original song form. The end result is a sound that’s engaging and new, yet familiar. This ain’t your dad’s Floyd tribute.
