The Story of Lover’s Rock (DVD Released 13 Feb)

Image

Featuring interviews with genre stars such as Maxi Priest, UB40 and, um, musician turned sauce vendor Levi Roots, this is a slick and enjoyable film centering on an often overlooked reggae style that has enduring popularity – amazingly there is a lover’s rock scene in Japan. The only duff note in the doc is provided by some fairly poor comedy sketches used to stitch interviews and concert footage together. Worth a look then, particularly if your only knowledge of Lover’s Rock comes from the Clash song of the same name…

This review appears in the March issue of Clash Magazine.
