Pop Group + Mark Stewart

One Marcus asked for the second Mark Stewart LP "As the veneer of democracy starts to fade", so here it is!

Tough rhythms by the former Sugarhill backing band Doug Wimbish, Keith Le Blanc and Skip McDonald ("It was this tape they´d done with like rockets going off and drums that sounded like steamhammers. I was going mental playing it to everyone."), very extrovert singing and shouting by Mark Stewart. Touches of Reggae, Dub, Hip Hop and early Industrial combine to a great package with hard messages on On-U Sound records. This is not Phil Collins.

Mark Stewart started with the Pop Group, a radical Wave/Post-Punk/Funk/Reggae collective from Bristol, that asked to throw down the government and rob a bank. What more do you want. And it still sounds fantastic. Tight rhythms and clever lyrics still make you want to start the revolution, but nobody does...

Pop Group - For how much longer do we tolerate mass murder? 1980

Mark Stewart - As the veneer of democracy starts to fade 1985

Labels: ,

Hi you all,

sounds really promising, a lot of on-u gems! I will participicate on my blog with some Revolutionary Dub Warriors.


just went through the On-U discography. Including compilations/sampler I have ~70 cds of them (1 vinyl).
Continued with Creation Rebel's "Psychotic Jonkanoo"..

"Deliverance" by the Revolutionary Dub Warriors is posted.

I can't compete with that!!!

Ich meinte DICH
friend electric!

ich hatte jetzt allerdings auch die Blanc Records dazu gezählt (da mach ich noch mal ne eigene liste), dann relativiert sich das wohl so auf 65 oder so

Wow, what a great site. I have a vinyl edition of the second album by the Pop Group. Great to listen now after many years. Thanks again for this blog.
