UB40 back in the day …

Posted: October 4, 2008 in music

Had a good time at the Bermuda Music Festival on Friday grooving to UB40. It was great to see them again after all these years (1980-81, I think was the last time) and it sure brought back a lot of memories, although I would have loved to have heard more of the older dub-influenced stuff like King, Tyler, and Madam Medussa. It’s a shame Ali Campbell has had his differences with the band – he left in January after 30 years – because while brother Duncan is giving it his best shot as his replacement, he doesn’t quite have  the unique and seemingly effortless tone that Ali has. For a reminder, check out this video for Kingston Town.
