roots rock rebel radio – best of 2014 show

rootsrockrebelOne of our favourite radio shows, Roots Rock Rebel (“the only place on the FM dial in Montreal where you can hear top quality ska, reggae, rocksteady, punk, and soul”) just pod-casted their latest episode…the best of 2014 episode…nice to see Action Sedition and The Rebel Spell on the list!

As DJ Aaron put it so succinctly, the show is all about “class war on the dancefloor”…

“On top of that, I have a strong belief in radical, anti-authoritarian politics and lifestyle. This goes hand in hand with Roots Rock Rebel, in my opinion, because ska music was the music of Jamaica’s liberation, and the music of the shantytowns. At its core, it is a rebellious, working-class, people’s music. The 2-Tone movement brought an anti-racist consciousness into ska and punk, and as the Specials said, “if you have a racist friend, now is the time for your friendship to end.” So turn up your speakers, slap on your dancing boots, and fire your boss! Because if I can’t fucking skank, it’s not my revolution.”
