Horace Andy and Dub Asante 9th April 2011
A reggae highlight at Band on the Wall — the 2nd night of a 2 night residency by the Jamaican roots reggae legend and Massive Attack collaborator Horace Andy with long-time band Dub Asante.
Possessing what must be one of reggae’s most beautiful voices, Horace Andy emerged as a major force in the 1970s when his collaborations with producer Coxsone Dodd and, later, Bunny Lee resulted in a series of songs now considered classics including You Are My Angel, Skylarking, Just Say Who, Don’t Try To Use Me, Zion Gate, I’ve Got to Get Away and Something On My Mind. Later hits include the singles Government Land and Do You Love My Music and seminal album In The Light.
In 1990 his long-standing collaboration with Trip-Hop pioneers Massive Attack began which resulted in him contributing to all five of their albums – most notably with Angel on Mezzanine and Five Man Army on Blue Lines.
