Creation Rebel - Dub From Creation (1978)

Creation Rebel worked with Adrian Sherwood from 1977-1980, recording some of the best reggae dub music this side of Lee Perry during the early English punk era. 

Languorous, funky, spacy, and totally intoxicating, it's exciting to hear the awesome production/mixing talents of Sherwood in their early days.

Similarly, the band (drummers Style Scott and Fish Clarke, bassist Clinton Jack, keyboardist Bigga Morrison, guitarist Crucial Tony, and percussionist Slicker) play with a grace, effortlessness, and power that most studio bands would kill to achieve.

"Dub From Creation" is the debut Creation Rebel album, released in 1978. The original band had been a studio outfit known as the Arabs, now primarily remembered for their work with Prince Far I, including the classic dub set "Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter 1". 

The rhythm tracks for this album had been laid in Jamaica, but the overdubs were worked up at Gooseberry Studios in London. The experienced Dennis Bovell was the engineer, with the young Adrian Sherwood on his very first production assignment encouraging him to make it “madder” and add more and more effects! A real great piece of dub!
