The Equators

Profile:
Formed in 1977 by the brothers Bailey (Donald, Leo & Rocky), the offspring of Jamaican immigrants to England, The Equators were discovered by Stiff Records’ President, David Robinson, performing with another Birmingham band, The Beat (which shared The Equators’ 20/21 Management team). Robinson, ecstatically impressed with the raw energy of their concert performance & the soulful innovation of their ska-pop-reggae sound, moved to sign the band to the famous Stiff Records label (home of Madness & Elvis Costello).

The Relationship with Stiff Records began with The Equators backing the Jamaican ska-reggae great, Desmond Dekker ("Israelites", "007 Shanty Town"), on his Black and Dekker album.
