  1. Nice one…didn’t know that digidub track. But what happened to Bruce Springsteen? The River is the story of my life:
    ‘for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat’. Ok in my case it was a student union card and it wasn’t so much a wedding coat as a long Joy Division style raincoat.

  2. Ah Bruce… I bought my first Bruce Springsteen record this week, in fact! But I wanted to keep this post more on a UK/JA reggae / bass / soundsystem thing.

    The Digidub “river” is the title of the album, not a track unfortunately, but obviously part of the story…
