From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Clint Eastwood & General Saint were a reggae deejay duo of the early 1980s, consisting of Clint Eastwood (b. Robert Brammer[1]) and General Saint (b. Winston Hislop[2]). Noted for putting on lively, theatrical and humorous performances, Eastwood and Saint came to be known as a novelty act in Jamaica.[1]

Jamaican Eastwood was already an established solo deejay with a string of albums behind him when he teamed up with British deejay Saint, their first release being “Tribute to General Echo”, about the recently killed slack deejay.[2] They hit the UK Singles Chart with their version of “Last Plane (One Way Ticket)” in 1984.[3] Both of the duo’s studio albums made the Top 5 of the UK Independent Chart.[4] Saint went on to a solo career, releasing singles such as “Save The Last Dance For Me” and “Oh Carol” (both featuring Don Campbell). One of the duo’s live performances was recorded by the BBC for their In Concert programme, and this was later released as an album.

The duo reunited to perform at the the Luton Love Music Hate Racism festival at St. Georges Square in August 2010,[5] with plans for a new EP in October 2010. They made a video for Love Music Hate Racism featuring Luton band Shabby Tinkerz, and performed live on Mark Lemarr’s BBC Radio 2 show.
