Creation Rebel drop Under Pressure, further new music from forthcoming new album Hostile Environment.16.08.2023
Creation Rebel release Under Pressure, further new music from forthcoming new album Hostile Environment, out October 6th on On-U Sound.
Under Pressure highlights a powerful vocal by drummer “Eskimo” Fox aka Charlie Mus’Come, an original member of the On-U Sound crew and alumni of the legendary Alpha Boys School: a vocational residential school run by nuns in Kingston, Jamaica that produced some of the instrumental greats to come from the island, including Don Drummond, Tommy McCook, Rico Rodriguez, “Deadly” Headley Bennett, as well as vocalists such as Johnny Osbourne, Trinity, and Yellowman.
It’s important to emphasise this lineage when it comes to the story of the On-U Sound label, a unique coming together of JA and UK talent. When Eskimo moved to London in the mid-1970s he originally played in the bands The Dove Rocks and The Freedom Fighters, providing backing to many touring Jamaican stars of the period, before meeting Adrian Sherwood and becoming a key part of his rotating cast of singers and players.
