Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Tech's turn this week and he's gone with London roots reggae band Misty In Roots.

Wiki tells me that their first album was released in 1979, and lists 8 albums and a bucket load of singles and EPs up to 2002. As far as I can tell, they are still playing, no doubt Tech can clarify that one.

Usual thing, noms in by 10 pm Sunday evening, leave a link to your nom, and come back to vote next week.

Have a fun weekend :-)

Tech XXIII  | 6624 comments efterval,

no new recordings for 17 years, but, yes, the mighty misty in roots are still on the go, just as good as they ever were. predictably going for something off the best live album in history, purely because the song has been bouncing around my head recently. give thanks for keeping u.k. roots alive.

It is a selection, but not a musically diverse selection. Don't get me wrong, I saw them live years back and they were mighty. But it was basically the same song all evening.

An argument used by folk from one cultural tradition of another they only partially understand. Country music is all pedal steel guitar and songs about drinking and broken relationships, blues is all ...... etc. Misty do what they do (militant roots reggae) brilliantly and you either see and appreciate the diversity within or you don't and if you're of the latter persuasion you're entitled to your opinion but sharing it won't engender the harmony you undoubtedly intended. Opinions are, after all, like @rseholes, everyone's got one but airing it in public is frequently undesirable ..................... especially if it stinks.

This pair of customer reviews for one of Dr Bird's reggae rereleases illustrates the gulf somewhat (neither of them are right in my OPINION!);

In fairness, Tech has never been shy in giving his low opinion of about 90% of every other style of music, so I think he can take a minor diss.
And hey, look, I nommed a track in a reggae round, 'cos I'm not impartial to a bit of dub like what's in the back end of my chosen offering.

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments A more than healthy 13 noms this week then for Misty In Roots means that we are back to the 4 point voting system.

Enjoy your week, while I ponder over the foolishness of telling Mrs Pig about a seller on eBay who was selling off a massive collection of mainly jazz LPs.

Aw smeggit..my eyes must have opted to ignore the words 'Full Album' i guess..i really do need that appointment with Speccys savers soon.

But having had a looked closer look, i guess i would've gone with the first song..which is Bail Out....ah well;-)

But yeh..it were awright....kinda, plenty of other stuff out there I'd loathe way way more than a bit of Reggae for sure.....but these are the only ones I'm prepared to award an numerical value to! ......

Tech XXIII  | 6624 comments "his songs" - their songs

you either like it or you don't, get it or you don't - no matter, but perhaps an element of sameness is due to 5 noms from their 7 track 'live' debut (5 from a live album? bet that's never happened before). it's a magnificent album, but not my favourite (that'd be 'wise and foolish' (nominated in full), now run out and buy all their albums! only, you can't, except for a download of 'roots controller' (sadly free of noms) (half studio 2003, half catalogue sampler), even corn-fed are deleting their remasters in order to hand the tapes to the band 'in hope rather than expectation'. misty in roots, for me are the pinnacle of u.k. roots - unlike aswad and steel pulse, they never sold out!

No real excuse (binge-watching SWAT of all things) and genuinely sorry about this one.

Mebbes nominate the twin peak of UK roots; Talisman?

Actually Aswad would be interesting - Three Babylon vs Don't Turn Around - no prizes for predicting the winner (unfortunately).
