December 2007 - Jamaica, the 1980's.
The music of the time was called Rub a Dub,
Yellowman was King and Volcano was the Label

said about Henry "Junjo" Lawes.
Some say he was illiterate but still managed
to come up with contracts for the many
artists that he signed for his label
the Scientist, for example, mixed his
classic DUB series based on Cartoon and
Video-game characters for the man but he is
recorded as saying to never have released a
cent of the mega-seller that was released
world-wide on the UK based Greensleeves
the case, it's a fact that the music
released on Volcano was the hottest Rub a
Dub label around. Otherwise, there couldn't
even have been a mention of fraud and so on
in the first place, because who cares about
you want to know what Rub a Dub is, simply
checking out the Sound of the Volcano will
do, in away. And Volcano is Henry
the Roots Radics who were Channel One's
Studio Band and released a multitude of
vocals, DJ tracks and DUBs of which many
remain classics until this day.
A number of
these classics as well as some rare and
therefore very interesting tracks can be
found in the excellent Potcast (no typo)
"Sound Of The Volcano".
upfull Rub a Dub experience that doesn't
have much counterparts in the Podosphere.
For some reason, people keep ignoring the
Rub a Dub era and that is a shame.
