Dusty Corners Corner

The first instalment of a new series of songs about corners.

I was originally just looking for something to play alongside Errol Scorcher's masterpiece, a record I've loved every since I first found the 12" version at a car boot sale in Cambridgeshire nearly 40 years ago. Then I discovered I had more "corner" songs in my collection than I had realised. We'll start with the reggae ones and see where we get to.

"Fire Corner" - King Stitt

"Lover's Corner" - Yellowman

"Roach In De Corner" - Errol Scorcher


  1. That King Stitt track is ace. You missed Prince Jazzbo's Ital Corner though...

  2. Something by Cornershop perhaps?

    2. I have censored myself. I was only trying to correct a typo and next thing I know I'm deleted. Anyway, all I was going to say is I'm counting them as a shop not as a corner, but there may well be a "shop on the corner" in a future post
