Tonight’s selections from Dub Syndicate’s 1991 album, Stoned Immaculate.
On-U Sound's premier dub outfit and a name synonymous with the label from its inception. Emerging from the early Creation Rebel and centered around drummer Style Scott. Scott was also the rhythm force of The Roots Radics, the number one Jamaican session & live band for deep roots music, and members of that band frequently join Dub Syndicate as did other On-U Sound players & singers. Usually working together with Adrian Sherwood, occasionally Scott broadened his view working with others like Bill Laswell and Dub Syndicate made two albums featuring Lee “Scratch” Perry. Exploring ambient and electro dub from The Pounding System album in 1982, the band in various forms kept going, touring & making records up until Scott's death in 2014. — Discogs
Wadada (Means Love) 
Wadada (Means Love) is built around sampled vox from the late Prince Far I.
The summer of 1983 was a violent one in Jamaica. Michael Smith, the dub poet, was stoned to death for speaking about the system. Hugh Mundell was shot to death after complaining about a robbery at his home. Then in September, at his home in St. Catherine, Prince Far I was brutally murdered by two gunman, who had entered by an open door, and then ordered everyone to lie down on the floor. They, then killed Prince Far I and shot and wounded his wife Carol. No motive has ever been put forward for the murder. Even today, people who knew Prince Far I cannot understand the reason for the killing. — Reggae Vibes
The title track from Stoned Immaculate finds Dub Syndicate sampling a Jim Morrison spoken word piece while laying down an immaculately hazy groove. — In Sheep's Clothing Hi-Fi
Stoned Immaculate 
At approximately 10:10 p.m. on Thursday October 9th , neighbors heard gunshots coming from the home of Lincoln Valentine [Style] Scott in the Williamsfield District of Manchester Parish. This quiet corner of west-central Jamaica, named after the nearby sugar cane plantation, was known, not for crime, but rather as part of the “bread basket” of Jamaica. In fact, Scott chose the place for its natural beauty, and because it was far from the hustle and bustle. When police arrived they discovered his body, a fatal gunshot wound to the chest. They had no suspects or motive in the apparent murder according to the sketchy reports published in Jamaican newspapers like The Gleaner and Observer. — Medium

A late night gathering for non serious palaver that does not speak of that night’s show. Posting a spoiler will get you brollywhacked. You don’t want that to happen to you. It's a fate worse than a fate worse than death.
