THREE MEN IN A DUB!
2 Tone Records vets THE N.J.E. have a new limited edition release out for Record Store Day and have announced a trio of shows to celebrate.
The indie-jazz trio comprises Mark ‘Bedders’ Bedford of MADNESS, whose debut single ‘The Prince’ was 2 Tone’s second release, alongside Terry Edwards and Simon Charterton of pioneering Norwich punk-funkers THE HIGSONS, who released the singles ‘Tear the Whole Thing Down’ and ‘Run Me Down’ for the label in 1982/3.
Last summer, the band entered the BBC’s famed Maida Vale studio to record a session for BBC 6 Music’s Gideon Coe Show, produced by On-U Sound maestro Adrian Sherwood. The legendary dub producer later remixed tracks from the trio’s 2017 debut album Afloat at his studio in Kent.
The collected results can be found on the limited edition album Afloat In Dub, released as a vinyl-only white label dubplate on Record Store Day, Saturday 13 April.
The N.J. E will be playing free shows at three seaside locations across Southeast England on Record Store Day. You can catch them, and buy the record, at…
