East Is (in) East

You’d have to be blind to have not caught me banging on about this album for the past few weeks, either that or you’re still not following me on TWITTER and FACEBOOK.

None the less it’s a very exciting day for me as the Wrongtom Meets Deemas J album “In East London” hits the shops today. It’s brimming over with vintage dancehall, grubby old dub and even a Monkees cover version, and it’s been championed by a whole host of folks including Huey Morgan (BBC 6music), Don Letts (BBC 6music), John Kennedy (Xfm), Steve Lamacq (BBC 6music), Ted Kessler (Q mag) and Eddy TM (Xfm) to name a few.

It’s in all good shops, as they say but if you can’t wait, you can grab it online either on CD, in digital or in a vinyl package which includes a 12″, 7″ and the whole album on CD, and of course the whole thing is wrapped up with the legendary Tony McDermott’s artwork, famous for his classic Scientist and Mad Professor covers, not to mention Duppy Writer (which is still available if you still don’t own a copy).
