Little Roy was born in Witfield Town, Kingston, Jamaica. He launched his career in the Rocksteady age, recording singles for Coxsone Dodd, Prince Buster and Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, who brought in The Wailers to help out on the session.
This double A-side covers Nirvana’s ‘Sliver’ / ‘Dive’ single which was released by Nirvana exactly 20 years ago. It was their first single to cross from the heavy rock of debut ‘Bleach’ to the more pop oriented writing of ‘Nevermind’.
The single is limited to 500 copies and was produced by Prince Fatty. The artwork is a nod to the pink / blue artwork used on Nirvana’s original single.
Will appeal to reggae collectors (Little Roy is a legend in reggae circles) and Nirvana fans. A great crossover of genres. Reggae has a history of covering well known songs (see Lovers Rock) but Nirvana have never been attempted... until now.
An album of Nirvana tracks all produced by Prince Fatty is being recorded to coincide with the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’.
An 8-11 piece Rastafari touring band are to announce shows soon.
