Caliban / Digital Reggae / Music From Memory

Drum machines and Rock guitar drive Caliban`s Digital Reggae. Caliban AKA Milton Myrie having been a seasoned session player. Jamming with Ozo and Steel And Skin. Outfits that will be familiar to collectors of Loft Classics and Leftfield dancers. Pressed on a 45 in 1984, rediscovered by Jackson Bailey AKA Tapes and now reissued by Music From Memory. It hits like Dennis Bovell`s Weapon Of Peace hanging out with Mad Professor`s Dodgy Contacts. With eccentric megaphoned, Music Hall, vocals a la The Beatles Yellow Submarine. An eccentricity coincidently shared with Tapes` own Hissing Theatricals E.P.

But the real gem on the new 12 is the previously unreleased Supernatural Magic. Catchy, feel good, Brit-Funk. Jazz Fusion Light. Take the “blue-eyed” proto-Disco of Kokomo and A-Train. Add the Caribbean-influences of Linx and Sun Palace.

An LP of archive material from Caliban is on the way.
