Ben,

The young musicians over in HI are into a style called Jawaiian. It's a combination of reggae and popular hawaiian music. Even though I'm a purist when it comes to musical styles, it' not bad.

Maybe Gecko can shed some more light on it (or light it up!).

(jammin', we be jammin' hey mon, pass the splif)

I'm a huge reggae fan but for some reason I don't ever mix my reggae with my tiki...I'm into early 80's dancehall - Yellowman, Eek A Mouse, Josey Wales, etc. as well as roots music (Mighty Diamonds, Wailing Souls, Culture, etc.) My collection spans from original Jamaican ska (Skatalites, Don Drummond) to rock steady (Toots, the Melodians) all the way to modern times. I have got ridiculous amounts of reggae vinyl cluttering my house and I'm always looking to buy more...you wanna talk reggae you can talk to me!!! The only stuff I don't like is the majority of new dancehall (if I wanted to listen to rap I'd buy a rap album) and this American garbage (311, etc.)

When I carve I got my Jawaiian BLASTEN!!! Or my Brahda IZ! Jawaiian is a mixture of the beating reggae drums to the flow of Local artist here on da islands such as Southern Rush, Oshen, Kapena the best of both worlds because they play both Jawaiian and Hawaiian.
You can pick some up at Momilanis in Oceanside. They usually have a good selection.

I hear you can get some hawaiian music over the satilite on da mainland now? Is that true? the music channles on digital satelite. If you got a awsome stereo system and can pick up over seas stations tune your radio to KCCN FM100. They play choke (a lot) Jawaiian sounds.

I love swingin my coconut wood chips to 96 degrees in the shaaaaaade, real hot in the shaaade!

I have a friend Joe whos band plays Jawaiian and reggae at Squid Joes in Carlsbad. He's a local boy that owns a Hawiiana shop in the Carlbad shopping center. They are awsome. Joe plays the bongos and the other local boy sings. The drummer is a black dude with dreds and 2 white dudes on bass guitar. I have the name on the tip of my tounge. They are awsome! Squid Joes is a cool place to have a drink too. They have Tikis outside. If anyone ever gets a chance to go, you gotta check those boys out! I hope that helps ya a little Bong.

Aloha

You look at the original ska from the Studio One label - that is the s*&%!! Roland Alphonso, Tommy McCook, Alton Ellis, Derrick Harriott, The Maytals, just to name a few...some of the greatest artists and music ever recorded in my opinion...But the unusual thing is that the rhythms created way back in the early to mid 60's were the foundation for so much Jamaican music until now.

The main era of reggae I collect is early 1980's dancehall especially anything produced by Henry "Junjo" Lawes and released on his three main labels - Volcano, Arrival and Jah Guidance. His primary backing band on the majority of his releases were the Roots Radics and they recycled Studio One rhythms and used them extensively on a variety of hits by such diversified artists as Johnny Osbourne, Little John, Sister Nancy, Yellowman, etc. to name a few. Riddims like Full Up, Nanny Goat and Real Rock ruled the dancehall in the early 80's...

Studio One is still recycled today and it just staggers the mind to think of what Coxsone Dodd and his studio have done for reggae and Jamaican music in general...

When I carve on the weekends, I listen to some local radio stations. Latin tropical music on klxu(?) from loyola university from 6 to 6, and on sunday nights on 100.3 I seem to do my best carving to the dancehall music.

I left one of my old dread locks in Bob's mosalium (sp) in the parish of Nine Miles.(back in 93') Mrs. Boo & I had this 9' kid as our tour guide who was stoned out of his mind . If you ever go to Jamaica, go to Nine Miles and check it out. We also got a personal tour (our cab driver's cousin was the grounds keeper of the compound) of Keith Richards house in Ocho Rios. We didn't know the exchange rate's differ every day so we were treated very well when we were tipping 20% everyday. We also went to Irie fm radio. Very cool. I taped a bunch of radio from Irie fm. Then traded my blaster for a carved plaque. While in Jamaica, don't ask any of the beach boys about Peter Tosh. While we were in Barbados 89' there was a local named Dr. D, who ran the beach and was pure rasta. He noticed my dreads and called them "attenas to wisdom". Ahhh. good memories.
Burning Spear, Ras Michael, Roots,Dub, Oldies, Newies, ect. It's all good!! Reggae Sundays.

Why not? I know Tosh was really self-absorbed, as well as paranoid and just a little ecentric. Has anyone seen the documentary Stepping Razor - Red X about the life and death of Peter Tosh? They used a lot of these personal tape recordings Tosh had made and he just came across as being really bizarre...If anyone is into Tosh they should check this out - it's one of the most compelling documentaries I've ever seen.

They got real "bent" when we asked about Tosh back then. I'm sure it's changed over time.

Did anyone ever go to the O.N. Club on Sunset in Silverlake back in the '80's? They had some great reggae and ska bands playing there every weekend. Also poured Red Stripe beer. As far as Jawaiian music goes, I'm not too sure I've been exposed. I've heard slack key like Sonny Chillingsworth and contemporary Hawaiian pop like Cecillio & Kapono and Kalapana. Even Hawaiian blues (Taj Mahal & the Hula Blues Band).

Check out the new "Dub Side of the Moon" cd. It's Pink Floyds dark side all done in a "Dub" kinda way! Well worth it! Very, well, worth it!
