"From Sugar an essential, down-to-the-bone version of the foundation Real Rock rhythm. Featuring Jackie Mittoo and Bagga Stewart from Willie Wiliams' classic 'Armagideon Time' cut, alongside Wackies' Itopia Crew. Musical Episode sets Horace in the same intense and spare dubwise mood, loaded with bass, rolling congas and spaced-out synth. 'In the Bronx, straight up White Plains Road, as far as you can go, past Tad's and Brad's and Moodies - as far uptown as you can go is City Line. This is Bullwackies Country. 'Born in Jamaica in 1944, Lloyd Barnes recorded for Prince Buster and worked for Duke Reid at Treasure Isle, before emigrating with Munchie Jackson to New York in the early seventies. Here they operated a small sound system -- with Jah Upton -- and in 1977 Lloyd Barnes founded the Wackies House Of Music, at 4731 White Plains Road. Behind this shopfront was the first significant Reggae studio and label in the United States, with numerous releases on City Line and Bullwackies, and subsidiaries including 'Aires', 'Senrab' ('Barnes' backwards), 'Senta' (after his mother), and 'Rawse'. Wackies' lineage is classical -- rooted in Studio One and Black Ark -- but cut with the acid urbanity of New York City. Its sound is characterized by pervasive echo and deep bass: The atmosphere is luminous and unique."
