Before getting to the music clips today, a quick plug for what promises to be an excellent gig coming up next month. My good friends True Identity will be playing at the Forge in Camden on 13 February as part of a special "Voices of Reggae" evening, along with the Blackstones and Kwest.
All reggae fans and surfers of the zeitgeist - to quote Charity Chic - who are at a loose end in London that night should get down there. And if you are not at a loose end that night, cancel all your plans and get down there anyway. For details of tickets, click on the venue name above. I'll see you there, folks.
There is no good reason why True Identity would need to recruit an extra member, being perfect as they are. But if they were ever to contemplate it, they could do worse than see whether Hannah Marfo was free. Here she is with some reggae-tinged Ghanaian gospel grooves to ease you into the weekend.
"Meda Woase" - Hannah Marfo
"Yen Som Obiara" - Hannah Marfo
As a taster for next month's show, here are the True Identity ladies rehearsing with B.B. Seaton for some of his own shows last year. I am not normally a jealous man but, unless the camera angle is very misleading, Pam appears to be getting a bit too over-familiar with him for my taste at 1:03. I am off to find a quiet corner to cry in.
