Skinhead reggae

Skinhead Reggae (or early reggae), is generally considered to be the period before the Rastafari movement entered mainstream Jamaican music from 1968 to 1970. It can be distinguished from rocksteady by the slightly faster beat marked out by the drummer using the hi-hat, heavy organ lines, lower mixing of the bass, and electronically doubled rhythm guitar stroke.

    'I would want to think that reggae music would be safe from the infiltration of skinhead culture'- now THATS an offensive statement. As many people have posted, true skinheads listen to late 50s, 60s, early 70s Ska, rocksteady and soul, adopted by white working class kids who lived with and went to the same clubs as the first wave of Jamaican immigrants to Britain. ‘Reggae’ came after this, where the beat changed completely. The ‘Skinhead Culture' is far from racist, do you really think the likes of Laurel Aitken and Symarip would make songs about and directly aimed at skinheads if skinheads were racist?. Oi came along well into the 80s and 'Traditional skinheads' tend not to listen to it at all. Read more into music history before you make derogatory comments. Rant over. [2]
