* Prince Buster, King of Ska *
* PRINCE BUSTER , KING OF SKA *
Ofcourse you all know ‘One Step Beyond’ by Madness, and ‘Gangsters’ by The Specials. But how many of you are familiar with the biggest influence on that 1979 UK ska-revival? Prince Buster, born Cecil Bustamente Campbell, made the original version of ‘One Step Beyond’ and a song called ‘Madness’. He also wrote ‘Too Hot’, covered by The Specials, and ‘Al Capone’, the song that inspired ‘Gangsters’. Go check on YouTube.
Today, the Secret Museum-staff would like to share our two fave Buster-songs:
‘Hard Man Fe Dead’ and ‘Seven Wonders Of The World’. Enjoy!
