Man Next Door / Austerity Skank

A 2 track rock steady single (6m 7s) — released March 31st 2017 on Record Kicks

A new single by Pama International and it's again available only on a super limited edition 45 vinyl only. On the A side a superb version of "Man Next Door". The song has been originally recorded by John Holt with his group The Paragons in 1968 on Duke Reid's Duke label and since then it has been covered by numerous other reggae artists including Dennis Brown, UB40 and Horace Andy, becoming a massive hit thanks to Andy's more recent version with trip-hop superstars Massive Attack in their album Mezzazine. On the flip side you'll find the rock steady scorcher Austerity Skank that has already gained support on the airwaves by reagge ambassadords David Rodigan and Don Letts. In their first 10 years Pama Int'l recorded 9 albums, 3 BBCRadio 1 Maida Vale sessions, won the Rebel playlist on BBC6, and became the first new act to sign to Trojan Records in 30 years. Their collective nature saw them work with members of The Specials, Madness, Steel Pulse, Style Council, Galliano, Kasabian, Mad Professor, Toots & The Maytals, Jimmy Cliff to name a few.

Wacth out, the 45 is limited to 500 copies worldwide.
