    PUBLIC ENEMY - BACK & FORTH




    They’re one of the most enduring Hip Hop groups, and they still have a major impact live. When Public Enemy first came to prominence in the 1980s, they shook thisngs up in a big way. The band will be back in Ireland for the Indiependence festival next month. Dan features classic and lesser-known tracks from the iconic act in this week’s Back & Forth.

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: JUNGLE, KILL CITY DEFECTORS, & MORRISSEY

     

    They gave us those two ridiculously catchy tunes ‘Busy Earnin’ and ‘Time’, and now comes the debut self-titled album from Jungle. It’s not what you might expect; rather than pack it with A-list pop tunes, they’ve given us an album of great depth and variety.

    After taking a bit of time to regroup, and write a bunch of new tunes, Kill City Defectors are back with album number two. ‘Drone’ contains their best work, and will see them pick up from where they finished up a couple of years ago.

    ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’ is the new Morrissey album, and it definitely ranks with his best solo work. Some comments have uttered surprise that the album is as strong as it is; thou shalt not doubt Morrissey! This is an excellent album.

    BURIED TREASURE - 'EARTHQUAKE DUB' BY THE REVOLUTIONARIES



    'Earthquake Dub' by The Revolutionaries was originally released in 1978, but was re-ssued in 2005. It’s one of the true lost classics from 1970s Dub/Reggae music. Recorded between 1975 and 1977 by Ossie Hibbert, it still sounds remarkably fresh. Dan features the album as this week’s Buried Treasure.
