The Revolutionaries

Profile:

Jamaican backing band, in-house session band for Jo Jo Hookim's Channel One label.
Built around drummer Sly Dunbar and bassist Ranchie Mc Lean - later replaced by Robbie Shakespeare - the band featured at various times fellow Kingston musicians Earl 'Wire' Lindo, Radcliffe 'Dougie' Bryan, Ansell Collins, Bobby Kalphat, Lloyd Parks, Uziah 'Sticky' Thompson, Bongo Herman, Stanley Bryan, Bo Peep, Eric 'Bingy Bunny' Lamont, Errol 'Tarzan' Nelson, Skully Simms, Robbie Lyn, Mikey 'Mao' Chung to name a few.
Everything fell into place when they backed The Mighty Diamonds classic 1976 set 'Right Time'. The album offered fresh new Rockers rhythms to the reggae world. This militant double drumming style dominated the music scene from 1975-1978.
It's from this period that a set of classic dubs were created by Bunny 'Striker' Lee from sessions recorded at Channel 1. The Revolutionaries mark the first time that the legendary duo Sly & Robbie played together.
