Biography

Wade Brammer, born February 10, 1954 in Kingston, was a keen follower of soundsystems such as Tippertone, El Paso, Kentone and King Tubby’s HiFi. At soundsystem Vee Jay the Dubmaster he started his career ,as Deejay Trinity, and there stayed for some four years. It’s not sure whether he recorded his first tune for producer Derrick Harriott (‘Owner Fi De Yard’) or for Channel One boss JoJo Hookim (‘Step Up Yourself’), both tunes released in 1976.

After doing some more tunes for JoJo, he switched to the then in-demand producer Joe Gibbs, where he recorded his most popular tune ‘Three Piece Suite’ in just one cut! The tune utilized the riddim of Marcia Aitken’s updated version of Alton EllisStudio One hit ‘I’m Still In Love’. The whimsical version by teenage schoolgirl duo, Althea Forrest And Donna Reid — ‘Uptown Top Ranking’ — was virtually ignored when first released; the preferred cut was Trinity’s piece on the riddim! A slew of fine singles followed: ‘John Saw Them Coming’, ‘Starsky and Hutch’ and ‘Judgement Time’. Joe Gibbs released Trinity’s debut LP in 1977, predictably under the title ‘Three Piece Suit’.

At the time of this album’s original release deejay Trinity was — alongside fellow deejays Dillinger and Ranking Trevor — at the height of his powers and popularity. After his stay at Joe Gibbs’ he went on recording for Prince Tony Robinson, Alvin Ranglin and he also released some self-produced albums.
